Great trip, lots of shopping (ummm… I totally needed those 2 new purses…), good food and tons of laughter!
I managed to get the background done of downward dog while waiting in Newark, NJ for second flight.
Hmmm, and let’s talk about that second flight. First, I upgraded to First Class and starved because I was allergic to all the food options (and when I asked about other options, I was told there were none- not even peanuts!). About that allergy, it’s to bell peppers, so not something normally served, but somehow it managed to be in every dish offered at lunch (except the fruit cup). Thank you Continental for taking my money, my miles and faith in airline travel. Oh, and can we talk about how bumpy and miserable the flight was… I’m pretty sure it was the pilot’s first flight… I think I’ll be sending them a little note in the AM.
So, did I mention it rained. Like sub-tropical depression-hovering-over-Florida-for-3-days rain. Thankyouverymuch.
And, after a trip to the human ER (Kathie was crippled in pain with a nerve issue) and the dog ER (Mom and Rose played vet…),
Kathie enroute to West Palm Beach ER with a pinched nerve in her back…
Angus, post visit to the puppy ER…
Thank goodness everyone will be ok, but it sure made for some memorable excitment!
We had a lovely time in the shop, found LOTS of new canvases… I’m going to attempt the Cape Stitcher’s Nutcracker Suite ornament set for the holidays- wish me luck!
Here are just a few snapshots (sorry, Mary Agnes, I caught you mid-camera story!)
Lots of goodies, waiting to be stitched!
We did manage to fit in some stitching time (after all the medical excitement and shopping!).
I took a project that I’ve had sitting around for a while and grabbed some threads from my stash to make it a ‘stash buster’ project.
Here is the progress:
Rose was a gracious host, and I slept better in FL, than I have in several weeks in MA.. perhaps the combo of fresh air, and lack of dog cuddlers
So, with that, I’ll conclude the trip recap, and offer a sneak peek of the large project that I’m currently working on…
And, I’m off to bed but, I will leave you with some serious kitchen-envy from Rose’s house. Check out this awesome kitchen accessory:
Have a good night and I’ll see you this weekend with more updates and a longer post!
