We're going to Florida!!!

October 12, 2007

Well we aren't going until January but it is a neat vacation and something to look forward to! We are going to be renting a friend's condo right on Daytona Beach. We have been to both the condo and Daytona before so we know our way around. Actually we have been to Daytona a number of times since my Mom used to go there for a few months in the winter (where her sister also had a place) for a number of years after my Dad died.

Anyway our friends Bruce and Luci will likely be joining us for a week (Bruce and Luci , of the chicken lamp!...for those of you who have seen it) so we will have a lot of laughs while there with them. I must post a picture of the chicken lamp sometime...not that it has anything to do with stitching...but oh well...

And if that is not enough, when we leave Daytona we will be heading to Nashville for the Cross stitch show!!! Man the winter is going to go by so fast if we are away from mid January till mid February...and when we get back I will have my big Open House of all the Nashville goodies to look forward to.

What a good day this has been.
Also it is my day for working on Pretty Pumpkins...have I mentioned in the last five minutes how much I am enjoying this SAL and this pattern???

Congratulations on a trip! YEA!!!
My favorite place in florida is just up the road from Daytona...if you have a chance you ought to go for a day to sightsee in St. Augustine. A lovely place! I love it there and haven't been since 1999.

Wow, how nice for you! I am so jealous! I haven't been to Florida for many years. My Mom and Stepdad are renting a home there this winter and I'm trying to talk my DH into driving down for a week. He's never been down south.

Oh Ann that is wonderful!! How nice to run away for a few weeks. The girls I am sure are excited about a trip too.

Ann I'm glad to hear that you and Dan finally have a trip planned! It seems like you've gone through so many plans and discarded them!

But you'll be missed... sniffle!
