Β We had a blast in Connecticut at our friends (and cousinsΒ πŸ˜‰ ) house!Β 

We got back home at nearly 4 am April 5th.Β  So we’re slowly catching up on lost sleep not only from then, but also when we were at the S’s house.Β  We stayed up late talking every night πŸ˜€Β 

We just love their stone walls!! They’re everywhere! πŸ™‚

Maybe sometime (in our spare time…ha ha) we’ll post about the whole trip.Β maybe.Β  Whenever we do find that spare time itΒ ought to go to posting about the East Trip πŸ™‚

Anywho, enjoyΒ this bit of CT πŸ™‚

    You’d better post about your trip!! πŸ˜€ I was wondering what’s taking so long!!! Connecticut is very woodsy! Kind of like some parts of Missouri and South Carolina.

    By the way Madison, I’ve decided to be a good bachelorette and do as you told me. πŸ˜€ Heeheehee!!

    ~The Naughty Spinster~

    Ps. Hey! If I’m a Naughty Spinster, does that mean I automatically turn into the Well-Grounded Spinster? LOLOLOL!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Sorry Kelsye, but I think I’ll take your name now!! Thank, m’dear!!!

      No, no, no, Hannah, that’s not fair! Don’t do it! Kelsye was in on it first……..
      Play nice now. πŸ™‚ I don’t mind if you keep the Naughty Spinster, though, that’s fine.. (fits you well- hee hee!) though I don’t know if naughty spinsters are well grounded.
      πŸ˜€

      Kelsye: In case you didn’t see the comment, I said:
      Instead of taking the common name of β€œspinster” (no offense to any of you who go by that name, of course…..it’s just that we have about four of them now!), you should be the Bachlorette. πŸ˜€ More unique!

      I looked in the thesaurus, and I couldn’t find any other terms for old maid. So it looks like we only have those three names to choose from between us all…….. So there is apt to be some grappling, being the dignified old maids we are!

          The well grounded spinster is here to stay πŸ˜€ Sorry Hannah:) Is there really already four spinsters. Let’s see……hummm…….There is: Jessica- the Flying spinster who loves to eat brownies over the white house:), Me- the Well grounded Spinster b/c I like to keep my feet on the ground not in a plane. Hannah- the naughty spinster, I am still a little stumped about this one……lol, Someone is Spinster number 4 and I am not sure who it is. I think that Hannah should be renamed the Flying Spinster ( sorry Jessica). Skydiving? really!!! I will have to say that this well grounded spinster is glad to have all two feet on the ground instead of plunging toward the earth at a billion miles a hour!!!!

            So who gets to be the Bachlorette? Inquiring minds want to know! πŸ˜€

            amen on the skydiving comment……I don’t mind flying in a plane, but you try to make me climb a high(ish) tree…….. *shudder* But what do you expect from someone who can’t even swing on a playground swing without getting seasick? πŸ˜€

            Lol! Well, the skydiving Hannah is different from the ‘naughty spinster’ Hannah πŸ˜€ I told the skydiving Hannah that I was jealous that she got to go up in a plane, but not so jealous of the way she was coming down, lol!

        Oh, I see how this works!! I get all the bad names, huh? Well! We’ll see about that, m’dear!! Of course naughty spinsters are well grounded!! Did you think they get off the hook without sitting in the corner for 10 minutes???!! REALLY! You need to get a guidebook on Spinsterhood! Well, I don’t have one but I know!! So there! ATTENTION ALL SPINSTERS!!! I have my thesaurus right here with me as I type! Here are some other dignified names you may use: bachelor girl, bachelorlike πŸ˜€ , old-maidish, old-maidenish, midenhood, maidenhead (isn’t that one strange?! πŸ˜€ ), single woman, lone woman, spinsterish, and spinsterly!! there you have it!!

    I may or may not be the forth “spinster”….Cause a while back I blogged as “The Sewin’ Spinster”. Is that what you’re talking about? I love the woods….my favorite spot in the world! Toooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many spinsters around here!

      Welcome to the club, Vanessa!

      Jessica, you might have to do an entire page on your blog called “Join the Spinster Club”. πŸ˜€ Really, I’m kidding. No, wait, I’m not. We don’t have goats anymore. Aw, you know what I mean…..

        “Oh brother! You know what I mean!”

        I may need to put a Spinster page up, just to keep track of who is who, lol!

    Ok – Firstly, where in Connecticut were you, if I may ask? My family is from the middle of the state, so we are there often – it looks just like… well, Connecticut.
    Also, Secondly, can I be the Spidery Spinster? Is there room for just one more old maid in this dignified group? Please say yes!

    I think you should just post all of those “unfinished” posts that I know are sitting in your files! πŸ™‚
    Anyway, I was going to write a really long comment, but seeing as we’re leaving in 5 hours to come to YOUR house, I should probably get some sleep! By the way, I think your readers need to see pictures of your adorable “nephew”!!!! πŸ™‚ Come, come, I KNOW you have LOTS! hee, hee, hee!

    This is not fair, I want to be a spinster too! Couldn’t I be “the married spinster?” Hmm…. I know it’s an oxymoron, but please???? πŸ™‚

    Missing you all so much (good thing I only had to wait 6 days before leaving to come see you)!!!
    HUGS!!!

        Yay! Another Spinster in the club! “Married Spinster”, I love it! That’s a keeper!
        Jessica, the page might not be such a bad idea after all! It’s brilliant! Why didn’t I think of that?
        I think I answered my own question. πŸ˜€

        I am going down the comments and I see Spinster after Spinster popping up, and I laugh harder every time one appears. πŸ˜€ I can’t wait to see what all you other un-announced spinsters show up as!

        I think though, that I am the only old maid. What’s up with that?
        Don’t say it, Naughty Spinster, don’t say it. πŸ˜‰

    I do think the spinster page is an AWESOME idea,Madison! You really should do it Jessica…What a lot of Spinsters there is turning out to be. The Naughty Spinster is a Purrrrrfect name for you Hannah! I can just imagine you,m’dear! πŸ˜€ I do hope I turn out to NOT be a spinster after all, but if I do….I won’t be the only one! πŸ™‚
