Do you feel time flying by? Now the big push to the holidays. All the flyers in the papers seem full of holiday items. I need to find a way to slow down and enjoy some of it. I am not sure that I will able to do that in November. My work schedule has a crazy 2 weeks scheduled.
So, how was your October? Did you get to spend some time outside? Did you play in the leaves?
Rich and I had canceled our big October vacation due to his surgery but having been through 5 days of solid rain and a soaking hurricane approaching I booked a quick trip to Arizona for us. Have you ever used Google Flights? It made it easy to book the trip. I could see what destinations were affordable on a map.
We had a convertible for the trip, fun for vacation but I wouldn't want to drive one every day.
We flew in to Phoenix in a Thursday so I was able to stitch with the girls at the Attic while Rich had dinner with an old friend.
Friday morning we met up with my cousin and her son for breakfast then headed down to Tucson.
The wall murals for the steps were very cool and it was fun hunting for them throughout the town.
The next day we went and hiked Bear Canyon in Tucson.
Another Tucson institution is eegees.
Monday the 5th was our 24th anniversary.
Then we drove up Mt. Lemon.
It made us both laugh it was so strong.
It was a wonderful end to our day.
So,with that it was back to North Carolina. We still had a couple days left of vacation so we took a day trip up to Prestwould Plantation in Clarksville, VA.
Rich went back to work on the 12th. There are still some challenges but we are tying to get back to normal.
There hasn't been much stitching this month. I was hoping to finish the LIzzie Kate Halloween Mystery sampler but that didn't happen.
Myra (Gr8dame's Place blog) did some amazing finishing for me.
Well I have more to say but this has been a long post. I am going to try to post again soon.
Thanks for traveling with me!
