Hello all. My Husband and I just returned this past Monday from our Annual Ski Trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. And yet again, I return ill. Head cold, fever, chills, etc. My body just doesn't not like the cold weather at all.
This will be our 6th year attending, and again we had a great time with family and friends in fellowship. Lots of food, drinks and good times had by all. It is usually anywhere from 5 to 12 couples and a few singles who attend the trip every year. The organizer of the trip is my cousins wife who has organized and or been involved with the annual ski trip for about 14 years now.
I didn't take many pictures this year, but here is sneak peak of our beautiful cabin:
On our way to Gatlinburg from Orlando, we stop in Atlanta, GA and spend the night with our family, and together we all drive up to Tennessee. I also got to visit a restaurant in Atlanta, GA, that I had heard so much about, its is called Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen. It was marvelous, so if you get an opportunity to visit one, check it out. I had the best calamari and scallops that I have ever had. The service was quick and the atmosphere was awesome.
I also got to make a quick stop at Fine Fabrics in Norcross, GA. We do not have a wide selection of fabric stores in Orlando or the surrounding areas. We have a few specialty shops but they can be a little expensive. I normally order online, or take part in the few nice things my local Joann's have every now and then. I picked up some really nice knits, in some very beautiful colors, trying to prepare for spring:
I also purchased a pair of shears that I had heard about in one of my Facebook sewing groups. Yes, they cut like butter, and I am in love. The price was right at $26.00, and they do free sharpening for a life. Which doesn't help me much, with them being in Atlanta, and me in Orlando. Oh and peep where they were made "GRMANY". I couldn't stop laughing at the misspelling. I wonder if they were really made there. LOL.
