I can see the Light at the End of the Tunnel.

Well, its Thursday, that means by tommorrow at this time I will be off for the weekend!! I always swear I will not live for weekends and vacations, but I find myself doing so. Doesn't most everyone that works? I have a lovely job working from home, going out to see patients about 2 or 3 times a month, traveling to areas of beautiful California, but this job is really so that I can get money to buy sewing stuff; fabric, laces, wonderful sewing and serging machines. But paying the bills cuts into that!! Oh well, at least I really like my job.

Recent Fun

We took a 4 day mini vacation this last weekend to Huntington Lake, CA. This is one of the most beautiful lakes in California and we usually sail there. This summer we decided not to take the Rapunzel (19' Macgregor sail boat) up as we were away for alot of weekends. We camped with our friends and we took our 3 yr old grand dtr with us. Talk about busy... a 3 yr old requires constant watching and care, but we had a great time and Hannah loved camping as she could make mudpies for Dexter, our terrier and get as dirty as she wanted. She just couldn't figure out why he would not eat them!! Pics to follow.
