It’s definitely winter here. After some warmer weather earlier in the week, it’s turned *cold* again. As if the *cold* weather isn’t enough, it’s been overcast and dreary. But no snow … a little snow would be a nice reward for enduring cold, dreary weather, don’t you think? We do have some wintery weather coming this evening … unfortunately, it’s of the icy variety, not snow.
Abby (our Labby) continues to do well. She’s a sight … with shaved spots and stitches on her head and neck (and leg for the IV). She could audition for the part of Frankenstein’s dog!
Thank God … DD has been released to resume her normal activity. I know what a relief that must be to her.
We’re going to have dinner tonight with DD’s in-laws to get some advice/recommendations/info on cruising. DH and I will celebrate a milestone anniversary this December, and we’d like to celebrate it with a cruise to the Caribbean next January (beautiful beaches, blue water and warm weather). We’ve never cruised before (we always thought cruising would be way too expensive, but it looks like we can cruise for not much more than we can do a land vacation … and trust me, we travel on a budget) … my online research has presented way more options/choices than I know what to do with.
I’m making good progress on hand quilting my quilt. I’ve got 30 of the 42 blocks quilted, and it won’t take too long to finish it. I bought the fabrics for my next quilt … a two-color blue and white Irish chain.
