Monday . . .

A quick note (ha!) to check in and post the latest...

My sister and her DH had a wonderful cruise around NZ and Australia.    One of their trans-Pacific flights was on New Zealand Air and according to her, this was the most enjoyable flight they have ever taken!  They loved the flight attendant staff, the safety video  that used Lord of the Rings characters, the food, everything.   That might have been the flight that was a double-decker plane.  Two floors of passengers!   I cannot imagine this!

  If Down Under wasn't such so far away,  they would go back again.  .  The jet lag was very difficult when they returned home, due to the time difference.    I can't wait to see their pictures.

Last Monday I spent the day with Sondra in Calif,  now lives in North Carolina.   She looks fantastic, is doing very well, and says "Hello"  to everyone here.   We had a wonderful day together, getting caught up on each other's lives and sewing projects,  went out for lunch, and I took her to a local quilt  shop that has so much fabric, it is impossible to see it all.  I am not kidding.  We were both overwhelmed and did not stay long.

Atlanta truly was a winter disaster last week, and I am very thankful that our son and his wife do not live down there.   Of course, we have had similar winter storm events but none quite as dramatic as what Atlanta experienced.  I will say that this winter is like the old-time winters we used to have, some thirty-plus years ago.  The problem is we have become spoiled to the mild winters we've been getting the past umpteen years, and there is more traffic on the same roads.

Stay warm and hugs to everyone!

So pleased that your sister and her husband enjoyed their trip Doris. Nice to know that Air NZ. impressed them too !Sorry about the jet lag!

That quilt shop sounds amazing. We have a good one locally with just enough fabric to make it interesting..Too many fabrics would be a problem for me, it would make making choices,too difficult!
