I’m officially on VACATION! I have waited 7 months for this since we first booked our cruise. We don’t actually fly out to Miami until Friday!! But I’m headed to my moms on Thursday since we’re catching the plane from there. I’m so excited. First time on MSC Cruiseline. I think regardless of the reviews we will have an extremely great time!! Plus we have that BALCONY SUITE that makes things all the better!! 😉
Now I have to do all my last minute things.. of course I’ve been packed for a week
Happy to be packed but gotta clean the house. My best friend will house/animal sit for us so I don’t have to worry about anything!! That I am thankful for. Well, talk soon, I have to get ready for MSC DIVINA -Miami, Fl -St. Maarten -San Juan, Puerto Rico -Bahamas!
Friday, I decided it was time to color the hair red-again.
Then I was on my way to Pittsburgh for a weekend away to see my family. It was so nice to just be AWAY from my area for awhile. We decided to make Pittsburgh Steelers Wreaths. Although it sounds easy, it took us a total of 5 hours (cutting fabric and putting them together)!! But it was great spending time with my Mom, Grandparents, Aunt, and my Husband.
It was also nice to talk about our upcoming cruise!! Only 15 days til my vacation time starts!! I guess I should probably start packing! My Mom, Aunt and I went shopping and got a lot of really nice clothes for the cruise. 🙂 We are all looking forward to the MSC DIVINA.
The Countdown begins…. and so much to do!! 😀
My enjoyment is sitting in a quiet house, tv off, door open, and just listening. I like to take a step back from the world and just relax.
Two of my cats are running through the house playing with each other while my little 4lb Yorkie is chasing them back and forth, jumping up and down, hoping they will play with her too. The other two cats are quietly standing up at the screen door focused in on the birds outside, eating from the feeder while the squirrel is rummaging on the ground for the left overs. The lovely birds, including my male and female cardinal that pay me a visit every day, are singing away as if they have a large audience. But the sound of it all is what it is all about. Peace. Relaxation.
Just listening to the birds brings a sense of relief that there is something to be happy about. Nature is a beautiful thing and the animals make it all that more special. I may not be able to have children but I get to wake up every day of my life with animals greeting me from my bed to my front door. I love that every morning I get the opportunity to wake up and listen to the birds sing their pretty tunes. Just appreciating the small stuff can really make you that much happier!
