Can't believe Thanksgiving is Thursday. We will be going to my mom and dad's, mom fixes al the food. She is a great cook!! Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!

Back To Reality

This is a picture I took in St. Thomas of our cruise ship from a mountain.

We are getting ready to stop at Dominico. I loved going out on our balcony to watch the ship dock and when we left the ports.

We flew to Puerto Rico on Friday and stayed there a couple days. I really liked Puerto Rico, we toured the forts. Road the trolley thru town, the streets are so narrow! We ate one night at the Hard Rock Cafe, the food was really good. We stayed at the Sheraton Old Suan Juan. It was very nice. Then got on the Carribean Princess on Sunday. There were over 3,000 passengers, the ship was huge. When we docked it looked like a high rise apartment~WOW!
The weather was 86 everyday. We had a great time and it was fun being with family. We got back to Puerto Rico last Sunday, it took all day to get home. We got back from our vacation last Monday morning at 1:30 AM
So back to reality.

~Holly Jolly Rug~

I have been hooking this rug but, couldn't get it done. I do have a good start on it so, it will have to wait till I get back from vacation.

It is another Lori brechlin design~ Notforgotten Farms~ Wynter Tyme booklet. I ran out of the primitive white, I knew I had more. Finally, found some more that I had dyed. If you want the pattern you can get it from Lori's picturetrail. Better get it fast she is going to retire all her older booklets.

Hope everyone has a great day!

I will be gone for Veteran's Day Nov. 11. So I'm posting this early. Thank you Veterans!!

We are leaving on vacation Friday morning. Our plane leaves at 6:00 AM, so we are getting a hotel Thursday night by the airport. We are flying to Puerto Rico then getting on a cruise ship. I can't believe it's finally here and we're going. My sons will be staying at our house. Lindsay is at college but, tells me she's coming home for the BIG party at our house. HOPE they are kidding me!!!

I was sick off and on since August. Something was wrong but, my Dr. couldn't figure it out. She thought it was my gallbladder, I finally got a HIDA scan. No, wasn't that. Still I was so nauseous. So I went to Gastro Dr., I got a scope and he found a polyp in my stomach and removed it. I also have mild acid reflux. I'm so glad I went, feel so much better. All the clothes I bought are too big, that's a good thing. So had to buy more.
I am going to miss some good shows and Christmas Open Houses at some of my favorite shops. Hope everyone is having a great week!!
