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

View from the room

Yesterday, Teagan and Locklan spent the day with us.

At some point, I excused myself and headed for the powder room.

Sitting on the throne, this is what I saw...


Which quickly became this...



And those memories, the ones when you never went to the bathroom alone...
came flooding back!

~sigh~

Seems like only yesterday!

The Perfect Gift

I am always searching for the perfect gift for my hubby...


The man who has everything.


In five years, I have gone high tech, low tech, personal and impersonal...


I rarely wow him...


He either has it, doesn't want it or won't use it.


Other than his work and television, he really has no interests.


He has a few 'assigned chores' to keep up...


Like breaking down the (Amazon) boxes for recycling and taking out the trash.


He does have one self appointed chore...


monitoring the toilet paper supply!


There are times I feel bad when I see him struggling up the stairs...


juggling five or six rolls of toilet paper!


He always makes sure the guest bathroom has multiple spares...


His bathroom too.


(I take care of my own bathroom)


The other day, I was in a restroom and they had this on the wall...


The perfect gift!
Now I'm not sure where to get one, or two...


I hope he isn't reading this...
