Life in the South

No, the below is NOT a picture of my home or my spouse!!! LOL
In reading Gerrie's blog this evening, I took the right brain/left brain quiz and found that I was 20% left and 80% right-brained. Then I checked out the rest of the site and thought I'd take the Redneck quiz, since I've now been residing in the southland for, ahem, 26 years! YIKES!!!
The results, drum roll please, Maestro:

***You Are 0% Redneck***
I'll slap you so hard, your clothes will be outta style.You ain't no redneck - you're all Yankee!
How Redneck Are You?

Last night C and I cohosted, with five others, a "just 'cuz" party. At our church's youth group's auction last Spring, my friend Mary "bought" a barbecue party and asked several of us if we would like to go in on it with her and throw a bash. We had originally intended for it to be a party for our then Associate Rector Josh and his fiance Sarah, but then they ended up leaving here sooner than first intended (there was some mysterious allure for New York City....hmmmm, New York City vs Gainesville, GA????) and we couldn't get the party organized before their new departure date, so we opted for a "just 'cuz" party. It was great fun and the evening couldn't have been more perfect! Of course, I went off and left my camera at home.....DERN!!! We enjoyed wonderful pulled barbecued pork, cole slaw, baked beans, watermelon (of course) and wonderful brownies baked by Mary's 90 year old mother. There were about 70 of us there, and folks just stayed on enjoying the wonderfully cool eveningand fabulous company. We all had a great time and are seriously considering doing it again next year!

So, my week has been filled with party preps, allergy shots, a little gardening in the cool, cool, cool of the morning, and dyeing some silks. I hope to have some photos for you in a day or two. We are now in Atlanta and my laptop refuses to upload pictures to my blog, so you'll have to be satisfied with just a few more Redneck photos...I apologize!

Well, forget about it....blogger won't let me upload any more photos...! So, until tomorrow....
