Home!


We're back home and very glad to be here! It was a great trip and we had some wonderful visits with family and old friends but I always feel like dorothy in the wizard of oz ...there's no place like home! And when we come over the last hill into town and see the pacific and then our lovely bay bridge...well, it just gladdens the heart!
I did take some photos while we were gone but didn't pick up a needle a one, which is almost a first for me...I took both beadwork and stitching to do, but just did not get to it. So following jude's lead, I'm just taking it easy...doing a bit of meditation...doing photos for my CED's and trusting that the path will open in front of me when I'm ready to walk along it.
Here's a photo of the road leading to the Alaska ferry docks in Fairhaven (Bellingham) Washington...I went to college in b'ham but it's been about 12-13 years since my last visit, so the town has changed a lot...for the better, I think....but it doesn't feel like "home" anymore.
Still, it was a beautiful day and we had a great visit with an old friend...one of the major upsides to getting older is having friends you've known for 40 years or more!
I was delighted to see the huge number of visitors to the blog for the OWOH giveway and have decided to add another piece if the numbers go over 200 by the 12th...something definitely valentine related...

I was in Fairhaven just a few days ago! You must have gone right by me on your way up and down I-5. Next time you'll have to call or something so we can meet!
