There has been a lot of rain since we left and we had storms last night. The grass is green, but not as green as Scotland grass. I miss seeing the sheep dotting the countryside. The hedges in the fence rows were so beautiful and I do miss seeing that. I tried to talk Jerry into moving the hedges that dot our farm and put them in the fence rows. He somehow didn't like that idea.
Things I learned:
1. How to make a "Caramel Cake" although it's really a pie. Take a can of condensed milk, cover it with water in a pan, boil on the stove for 2-3 hours. Makes delicious caramel. Pour into a mini pie shell and sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles. Delicious.
2. I do love scones and I can't wait to try my hand with them.
3. A lot of history and a wonderful new idea for a book. I have to finish the two in my current series before I can start it. I will have a lot of research to do before I can start, but that is fun for me.
4. Scots have beautiful voices. I love to hear them talk and sing.
5. Scots are a loving people and so friendly.
6. I miss the quietness of Scotland. No loud cars with radio's turned on high, high. It was very quiet on the streets.
Are we going back, yes! There is so much more to see. I may need a wheelchair when we go back, in fact both of us may need one. It seemed my Scottish blood came out in me while we were there. Can I roll my "r", certainly, if I want to. I'm in America and I will speak like I always have, but aye, we had a lovely time.
