Greetings Joanne
I am happy that you guys are safely back home.Lots of love and prayers for little Audrey and lots of good wishes for a great SUMMER.



You just need to live with toddlers... Anne takes great joy in singing the "home again" song when ever we are driving back onto our street:

"To market, to market to buy a fat pig. Home again, home again, jiggety-jig!"

So glad you're back!

Marla Taviano

I use that phrase a lot. :)

I missed yesterday's post. So sorry about Audrey. Glad she's getting back to her old crafty self.

Hugs to you, friend!!


I'm glad she's feeling better.

Yeah, that's a nursery rhyme:
To Market
To market, to market, to buy a fat pig.
Home again, home again, jiggety jig.
To market, to market, to buy a fat hog,
Home again, home again, jiggety jog.
To market, to market, to buy a plum bun,
Home again, home again, market is done.


I'm glad you made it back and that Audrey is feeling better.


I say that all the time, only in my repertoire it is, "Jiggity, jig, jig,".
My dad always said, "Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity , Jig Jig!" whenever we drove into the driveway completing a long road trip!

Happy Summer! Janine
