I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are not chastising themselves for eating too much! Hard not to do, isn't it? Then you get to face the leftovers the next day. Ymmm! But I hit the treadmill full speed running today. Between Thanksgiving and my trip to New York and all the food I ate there, I feel like a whale!
I realized today that I've only made one post this month, but there has been so much going on!! And none of it really stitchy. This time of year is always busy. I went on my annual trip to New York:
No, I didn't see the Statue of Liberty this year, but if you can believe this - I didn't take one picture!!! I think that I was just running around too much with my sister and then running all over the city, that I didn't take a single picture! Oh, maybe one of my sister's cat, but I'll spare you that one. The doll was sent to me by my mother - another Barbie to add to the collection!
Sis and I had a wonderful time. The weather was wonderful while I was there - in the 60's. I only had two days with her, but we combed the North and South Forks of Long Island for antique treasures. Treasures are not the same there as in Michigan, but I did come up with a couple things:
After that I spent a couple days in the City and those are always wonderful times too. The weather again was perfect - 65 and you didn't really need a coat! I can never get enough being there and all of the great sites to see, and the things to do. If you have some money you'll never starve or have a hard time finding things to buy in New York. But I never go into stores and shop - I just love wandering the city and seeing the sites - like the window displays, all the billboards and the people. I did go into St. Patrick's Cathedral - beautiful - and a few other places, but mainly just walked around. I can't wait to go again.
A few weeks before I left, I made a trip to my not so local LNS and on the way home stopped in the town of Holly for a quick run through in one of the shops and walked out with these:
Because of all the activity over the past few weeks, I haven't made much progress on Frances Eden:
And of course, like a pesky relative, my Farmer's Wife blocks showed up for this month!!!
So that's it - a rather boring post! Hopefully, I can get back into the swing of things now that I've recuperated from my trip. I always come home exhausted, over fed, but smiling!!
I haven't even looked in my Blog reader to see how far I'm behind on reading - I think that I have a lot of catching up to do! Thank you so much for your comments on my last post and for the congratulations to my son for his college acceptances. We're still waiting on the coveted U of M letter, but I think that we have another week or so before we hear anything. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!! And thank you to all my new followers! I came back from my trip and saw that I now have 407!!!! Wow! I'm shocked, but also humbled that you stop by to see what I've been up to. Thank you all so much!! I hope that the rest of your holiday weekend is great!!!
