We are back from our cruise to see the Fall colors…from New York to Canada. Traveling with my husband’s two sisters and brother in law made it even more special ….lots of good memories. We had a couple days to spend in New York seeing the sights. I have always wanted to go to New York. We were even lucky enough to visit the 9/11 Memorial…so
moving and still so hard to imagine that could have happened.
Ship life is truly wonderful. They over the top pamper you and then on top of it you get to visit some amazing places along the way. This just looks like a fairy tale! I could just imagine a quilting room up in that tower!!!! So green and beautiful. We met the nicest people too. Everyone was so excited to share a bit of the history of their towns and eager to have us come back! We definitely will be doing that. The 10 days of touring were jam packed with off ship visits here and there, eating and some shopping!!
I would love to have this sign hanging in the kitchen!!!
Yes it was a trip to see the Fall colors, but because it was still so warm the fall colors were still hiding. A stop in Quebec gave us a glimpse of what was to come. I took 288 pictures so I could definitely bore you with them all. I figured a few would probably be the best bet. It was definitely a bucket list trip, one that we will always cherish with family. Coming home is always good. We missed the kids big and little and knew hugs would be waiting. We weren’t disappointed!! Pulling in the driveway however, I realized my scarecrow on the porch was wearing different clothes….VANDELS!!!! Quilting vandals non the less! Not naming names (Ruthie, Joan and Debbie…just sayin’)….had TP’d our house quilter style. First thing Mr. P. said was “I’m not cleaning that up” :-)!! Those same words came from my dad when I was in high school. We both had a good laugh and it was such a wonderful welcome home from my quilting buddies …….a Homie’s Hit as they called it!!! What is it they say about payback?!!! It’s on now! Thanks girls you warmed my heart!
Got my next batch of Xmas goodies from my swap partner Sharon. She has been affected by Hurricane Irene. Some cleanup happening as well as lots of community involvement on her behalf. She sent October’s and November’s gifts with a goodie to open now! Isn’t that crow the sweetest ever?!! He’s perfect sitting on my Halloween bench. Thanks you so much Sharon, and all my thoughts are with you and those in your community.
I have been slow getting back in to the swing of things and now a bit behind on bindings…..time to put the pedal to the medal!! Missed you all and now I’m off to see what you all have been up to.
