I sure hope the weather is better than we have here, these cool overcast dreary days, are starting to wear thin. The only good thing about the cooler weather, is that my cool weather vegetable are lovin' it.
I have been planning my trip back to New Zealand later this year, but air fare is outrageous right now, so I am ummm! hoping that the price of gas will go down ( I am not holding my breath on that happening any time soon) therefore airfares will drop. It is interesting how the airlines advertise their airfares. You take a look and see an airfare around $1200 and say that's reasonable, but then, you look at the taxes and fees they tag on and it comes to a total of around $1600. Dang!
I miss my family, especially my daughter who has Huntington's disease and lives in a beautiful facility just for people with this disease. They have a family room which is offered to me for my stay, so I am able to stay right there in Amaryllis House with my daughter and see her every day. I also take time to stay with my two brothers on Drambuie, my oldest brother's boat, which is about half an hours drive from Amaryllis house, and do a little partying.
This year Mr C is going to Holland to shoot in the European Steel challenge as he and I have done the past two years, but I cannot afford to do both trips in one year, so I will stay home and take care of things while he is away Sighhh!
I am looking forward to all our adventures this year, as I truly believe that you really must try to do all you can to enjoy life to the fullest while you can. There will come a time in our lives, earlier for some, when we will be unable to enjoy even simple pleasures, because of health or other issues, so enjoy laughter and fun, and share your love with others while you can.
