The Face of Pure Joy...

Ashley sent me this photo on Saturday...

Tegan eating an Oreo...


This is how I feel when I open an Oreo and scoop out the icing...

Don't you?

This Makes Me Sad...

This morning, just after daybreak, Andy stopped in.

He and his friend, Cody, were headed to camp.

Time to take the boat out and take it to the storage place...

Time to pull the docks out....

Time to winterize the camper...

He sent me this photo he took today...



~sigh~

I wasn't ready for this...

I wish summer could last until we get out the Christmas decorations!

Good bye summer!

Lots to Say

But not today!

Monday I caught up on my rest...

I had wonderful company yesterday...




Today if I don't get caught up on the laundry...

Tomorrow I'll be blogging naked!

I promise that won't happen...

Headed to the basement now!

I Wasn't Going to Talk About This

I was going to pretend that today was just like any other...
But I can't.

This afternoon, about 1 o'clock will mark the 8th anniversary of the day our lives changed dramatically.

The day my boys lost their best friend as well as their dad.

The day I lost the husband that I was finally getting used to
(after 27 years)

It happened so fast, so unexpectedly...

We still talk about him as though he was in another room.

We still laugh at some of his antics.

Once, when we were cracking up about something he did,
Mr. K piped up with, "I miss him too!"

I know we'll see each other again...

One of these days.

RIP, Mark

Dried Up?


Dry.  
That's what I do with a towel, 

How about you?

THIS is what Richie, our room attendant did with them...

The first night, we had this...


His second work of art scared me...

 

I wasn't sure if it was coming or going...

But he saved the best for last...


This was hanging from the ceiling in the middle of the room!


Mr. K wanted his sunglasses back, so I let it borrow a pair of mine!

What fun!

I wonder if they have to go to towel folding school?

I could get used to this...

Room service breakfast here...




Riding  around Halifax, NS, in a pink, double decker antique tour bus...




I'm lusting after this (larger than) life statue.
thinking I need one for camp!




And hoping that I am not eaten by this towel monster...




Did I mention the food?


Oh the food. 


No photos, but I will be ordering sweat pants for my future...


Headed  south, will be in Portland, ME tomorrow!


I will admit that I'm a teensy weensy homesick...

Miss those grands...

But I will admit I am already planning our next cruise!

Where in the world are....

Jan and Mr. K?


Last Sunday morning, we boarded a plane in Pittsburgh...


Flew into Boston


Where we were whisked away onto a shuttle bus


Driven to what felt like a warehouse


and spewed with what seemed like a million others...


Into this!




The Serenade of the Seas!


We've been on the move ever since.


We are on a seven day New England and Canada trip.


North in the fall, one of my favorite times and places.


Two days ago, we landed in St. John, NB, which has an incredible story.


I call it story, it's too rich to be called history.


Yesterday, a day at sea, we saw dolphins and whales!


This morning, we arrived in Halifax, NS.  


I can't wait to check it out!


Our suite is spacious and homey...


The food is amazing.


I love room service breakfasts...


Maid service...


Turn down service...


Entertainment!


I'm still trying to jiggle and joggle photos from one place (phone) to the other...


It takes forever but I do have one.


Want to see it?  






The escargot that was my appetizer at dinner last night!


I'll catch up with you soon!


~Do you think I could convince Mr. K (and my entire family) to live on a ship full time
