Where is Debbie?

Hey friends!  I'm on the road again visiting family and writing this post in the Pittsburgh, PA area.  Did you watch the eclipse today?  I made it to my sister's house just as it was happening. It didn't get very dark at all here in the Pittsburgh area, but my hubby drove to Franklin, NC to see the total eclipse. Poor guy is still sitting in a huge traffic jam trying to get back to our house in Asheville!!

I spent the weekend in West Virginia, visiting family there before traveling to see PA family today. Here is a delicious meal my sister, Sharon, cooked for me while I visited in WV. All the veggies you see here were grown in one of her three (!) gardens. She and my brother-in-law freeze and can all of their veggies for the winter. The biscuits and cobbler you see were made from scratch, too. My sister, Barbara, made a fantastic meal for me, also. I'm definitely not starving on this trip! Now, I'm visiting with sisters Star and Joyce here in the Pittsburgh area. I am so proud of myself for doing the drive here today. Thank goodness for GPS devices! It routed me through downtown Pittsburgh. It was quite exciting to drive through the Pitt Tunnel and exit to see all of the skyscrapers next to the Monongahela River. I can now say I am a "big city" driver! Fun fact, this river starts South and travels North.

You'll remember I visited this area last August and walked some of the River Walk near the old Steel Mill area. Here's a flashback photo from my walk last year. I'm sorry I didn't get a Saturday Scripture posted. I couldn't handle that post in addition to driving to West Virginia on Saturday. I seem to be getting wifi this year at my sister's house, so as long as that continues I'll try to do a Saturday Scriptures post this Saturday. It's wonderful to see my family, although I'm missing Mr.thisandthat who is holding down the fort at home. 

Your turn....are you doing any late summer traveling? Did you experience the solar eclipse today? Hope you'll take a moment to share! 

Until Next Time,
Debbie

I love Pittsburgh and have been there countless times! Driving in that city is always a challenge! Since I live close, I like to go for the day and visit all the markets in the Strip. Wonderful places to eat too! It's great that you had that time with your family! I have fall trips planned and love to travel. Travel for me is happiness! Seeing new things is fun, and I love staying in different cities. Wanderlust for certain! !

Karen, I hope you weren't in the path of any of those bad storms today. We had some really bad storms here in Pittsburgh. That's cool that you have been here fairly often. I don't often get to go into the city and I think it would be fun to walk around and see the sites. Probably not this visit, though.
