Joy


Hi, stitching friends!

We enjoyed our last full day here by going to the waterfront in Newport. We saw the sea lions sunning themselves on the dock, browsed the gift shops and stopped at Beverly Beach again on the way back. It was pretty windy today and the tide was high, so we are saving our beach walk for tomorrow (fingers crossed). I finally pulled out my hat, scarf and coat today!

This evening we checked out the clubhouse at the condo and made a mental note to bring our swimsuits next year. Heated pool...check! We shot a few games of pool, and while I am not good, I am happy to report that I won two out of five games, so it wasn’t a total embarrassment.

After we check out tomorrow but before hitting the road, we hope to squeeze in one last walk on the beach. And, stitching friends, Shawn insists that I go to Starlight Stitchery in Corvallis one more time. What should I get? They have so many things I’ve never seen.

Hope you are enjoying the holiday hustle and bustle, and I hope you are taking some time to pamper yourselves. Thanks for all your sweet comments!

  1. You finally pulled out your coat, I would have been sleeping in mine. What a nice week you've had, thanks for taking us along. Really nice photo of you two. What to purchase? Things you will not be offered from online shops. And lots of them!

  4. Y'all look rested and refreshed. So glad you were able to get away. Enjoy that beach walk and that trip back to the store. I would wander around and see what speaks:) It has been so long since I have seen the inside of a store that sells cross stitch that I truly think I would be overwhelmed. That is going to be on my bucket list to travel to one.

  6. What a pretty picture of the two of you Meg. So glad yall had some quality quiet time. It is so needed in our busy world. You had asked about dehydration with Mother's situation. Well I fuss at her all the time that she needs to drink more but she just is not interested. I do think she is focused on heaven these days. At 89 the quality of her life has diminished and all her peers have gone. I try to be understanding but I worry about her a lot.
