I'm up

Yesterday I felt terrible when it was time to get up and all day for that matter. It was probably the deadly boring meeting I'd attended the night before and when I left I saw they had propped open the door of the church allowing every pollen spore in the area inside. I was wondering why my nose was so stopped up during the meeting. Yesterday was lunch with the girls day, too but had to call to tell them I wouldn't be there.

Spent the day resting and surfing the net looking for somewhere we wanted to stay in Port Aransas. It is time for our yearly trip to the coast. Hopefully we will miss the hurricanes that have been so prolific this year. Our trip will be at the end of the month, so we should be ok and we will only be gone about a week. Unlike Melli's three week extravaganza. *so totally envious of her about that* Not that much to do in Port A and I get all the fishing I like done in a day or so. I'm taking a book and some knitting with me while hubby gets his fill of fishing. There is a bird sanctuary down there, I think. I'm pretty sure there is more than fishing. However, it will be a treat to go down to the shrimp boats to get our dinner when they come in. That is a real photo op...the shrimp boats, the gulls, the ocean....yes...taking the camera for sure.

Also, earlier I'd noticed and email from P. Allen Smith and thought it was just the regular newsletter, but it was an invitation to the Garden Home that will be open for view by the public on September 27th and 28th. The days we will be going to Port A. and it is too far to go up to Arkansas and then drive to the Texas coast. So, sorry P. Allen, but we'll have to pass this time. We have been watching the building of the garden home and the surrounding gardens for a long time on tv. It is really something and the gardens are fabulous.

  1. Amber, I hope you continue to feel much better and have a good weekend. I love the children's sayings. I am sure you will have a great vacation and enjoy your trip.

  2. Yes, feel better and have a good weekend!

  3. Hi Amber, Hope you feel a bit better too. By the way I meant to say thanks for your hints about Christmas, it's getting to the stage that we will have to do something like that or we'll be bankrupted, this pressie for everyone is driving me crazy and you like me, will probably be the designated person to go search out and buy the pressies. The present list gets longer every year - I will definitely be taking up your hints... Thanks again, Cheers Kate x.
