We're Home!

Home from Disneyland...with very sore feet and a much leaner wallet, we did have a good time. We spent 4 days at Disneyland/California Adventure, a day at Universal Studios, a day in San Diego and Sea World and a day looking around Hollywood and Beverly Hills. I took hardly any
still pictures but did about 5 hours worth of movies. The weather was not great, overcast and cool and some rain the whole week. We wore long pants and sweaters everyday. And of course, we heard the weather here in Western Washington was beautiful and sunny and warm. Figures!!! It's a gorgeous day here today in Lacey. I can hardly believe how much the plants and grass have grown in the week we were gone...the apple trees are fully in bloom, the irises are starting to bloom (a week ago there were not even any buds) and the wisteria is ready to pop open!!

I had a delightful two hours spent in Needlepoints in Garden Grove. I found several patterns that I had never seen before, and I was able to get 4 of the charms for the Shepherd's Bush Christmas ornaments Von and I are working on. (Von, they were $9.00 each! But so pretty!) I picked up a couple of Just Nan patterns and embellishments, Jingle Bell Tree Farm by Victoria Sampler, a Hardanger angel, and a pattern called Secret's a needlebook by Forget-Me-Nots in Stitches...I think that there was a stitch along for this somewhere at one time, I need to do some research and try to find the notes.

It's back to work tomorrow, I am in the middle of unpacking, doing laundry and getting the house back in order. Amy and Alana should be over soon...I missed the baby so much!!!

Welcome home, Connie! Glad you guys had so much fun even if the weather wasn't exactly what you'd hoped for. It doesn't surprise me - as a girl we often vacationed there in June and several times I definitely remember it being very cool with even a couple days of rain. Very disappointing for a kid from Idaho in "sunny" California!
Glad to hear you found the charms. At $9 each they should be made from solid gold. Sounds like you bought some great things. :D
