Getting there

It seems that it is taking me longer to get back to normal... or what I consider normal. I have not stitched! Maybe today. I am feeling more like myself. Whoever this recent person is, I wish she would disappear real soon. Luckily for me I have had the week off. I sure needed it.
Would you like another picture from my holiday?

I love seeing a fishing boat fleet. I do love my desert now, but I have wonderful memories of this area in Rhode Island. It is where I spent a lot of my young days... Galilee. My dad enjoyed fishing as did my uncle Tony and my Papa. Many times we roamed the docks a night. It felt safe. It would be my sis and I as well as my cousin Freddie and his cousin Joey and maybe a few other  kids. Our dad would fish, the moms sit and chat and we kids roamed the docks. My dad would sometimes catch eels. Yuck...no I never did eat them... he loved them. My mom refused to clean and cook them so dad would take them to a neighborhood restaurant where they made him some and served the rest. These eels were large...some as long as 36 inches and quite round. 
We had overnight rain...love the sound of rain while falling asleep. Finally stopped around 7 am...now we have humidity. The sun is drying the yard and before long there will be no evidence of the rain. I would like to just sit and stitch today. I do have a few errands to take care of.  I am still trying to catch up on all the blogs. There is only so much time in a day.  I feel like I am rambling! Mentally I know I am.
Thank you for visiting, welcome to my new friends and to all, have a wonderful day.

Hi Gracie, I'm just returning from my first ever vacation in new England. Loved the clams and lobster. Spent most of our time at mount desert island and Acadia national park. Loved every moment so I cano see why you miss it. I can't wait to go back. Be well. Xoxo
