Aloha, two Weeks in Paradise!
So it is hard to get back in the swing of things when you spend 2 weeks in Paradise, specifically, Kona, HI.
The first week as you all know was spent with my BFF of 57 years, Colleen of One Smile Lifts a Spirit. Her husband surprised us with a Mustang convertable. That was so fun whipping down the highway with the top down. We sat by the pool, played on the beaches, she snorkled (I love the water but have a little, (BIG) fear of deep water). We tried to take the Helicopter tour of the Volcano and Waterfalls, but both times it was cancelled due to weather. Oh well, maybe next time!!!
Colleen left and I met up with my son who turned 40 on November 25th. He is the one who decided that he wanted to spend his 40th with his mom and dad and family in Hawaii, so I have him to thank for this wonderful trip.
We spent more time on the beaches, took a trip to Black Sand Beach to see the turtles, went on a dinner cruise and saw the manta rays. Had sushi for his birthday dinner and then went to Kona Kozy's Comedy and Magic show, then a luau for Thanksgiving. It certainly didn't seem like Thanksgiving and was very strange to see Christmas decorations all around.
Got home on Saturday, the 29th to snow falling. We only had about 1-2 inches but it was so pretty and was cold enough for it to hang around for 3 or 4 days.
So, this is basically the first time I have been on my blog in three weeks. I have been getting ready for Christmas, decorating, wrapping gifts, finishing shopping and today we are going to get our tree. Not sure when I will be able to be in my craft room again to stamp, cause next week I have a minor surgery on my hand for trigger finger. I was able to make a few comments on the MIM, but hope to catch up soon.
