Evening in the Country...

Evening in the Country...
...a gorgeous view of the WV mountains I get to enjoy everyday. Also the place Bri proposed earlier this year! [Not taken on that day.]

Debate: Wardrobe Refashion

My 3 months is almost complete - 4 more days!  I did not, technically, break any of the rules considering any new clothes were bought by Bri and not me.  I do not even think I accomplished a single refashion!  Should I rejoin?  I am not sure considering it is winter and I have *needs* for over-the-knee boots.  I did snatch a snazzy light pink sheen crocodile motorcycle jacket from consignment.  Not that it was consignment price! LOL!  Still counts as a safe buy though. 

I guess I have 4 days to decide but I know my mind is already made - no more!  I can save money and make my clothes without having to take a pledge.  I will still promote Wardrobe Refashion because I love the idea and think it is great for many people I know!

Finally...a dream come true!

I thoroughly enjoyed the Disney Magic cruise.  Since we did not have enough of Mickey and Minnie we ventured to Disneyworld for the day!  My only complaint is the lack of princess constumes and the like for adults...we want to be princesses too!

Finally!  Although, once instead, it is still quite a trek.

Relaxing before choosing first place to explore.

Swiss Family Robinson

Haunted Mansion

Tom Sawyer's Island

Playing on Tom's bridge.

Thunder Mountain

Splash Mountain!

First time in jail!  Dumbo does not want his ears tugged!

Castle at night.

More colors on the castle.

I'm ready to return!

St. Maarten

Fresh idea alert: Next cruise will need to last longer than 7 days.  It just was not enough!


Beautiful homes.

Peaceful living.

Water is immaculate.  The island Saba is in the far back.

Road to the Courthouse.

Some of the tallest palms I have seen.

Seashells found.

Now I need a project to memorialize these.


One of the most relaxing views I have had the luck to enjoy was at Castaway Cay. 

Meet Serenity Beach.  No kids allowed.

Onset of storm.

Rain.  Folks still in the water during lightning.  Not a good idea.

It gets worse.

The storm continues.
They finally closed the beach.

A brief moment of clear skies.

Leaving Castaway Cay, the sky is nothing but calm.

I love to cruise.

Time Just Flies

I must admit that Disney really knows how to cruise.  I wish I was still there.  Serenity Bay at Castaway Cay or on the verandah of our spacious cabin.

I really cannot believe it has been more than two weeks passing since our return.  I have just uploaded photos and have a million things to do with souvenirs and etc.  Then there is the fabric store, which I have not ignored.  Nor have I completed the business plan.  Another story, another day.

The days on the cruise were just as beautiful as the nights.

We seen quite a few storms, including thunder and lightning.

It was mostly beautiful.

The Virgin Islands were quite nice too!

St. Maarten

St. Thomas

A bit of wildlife also!

Then there was the ship itself.  Immaculate piece of art.  Something astounding around every corner.

Still, the sea was the best.

We took soooooo many photos, more than a thousand.  No way to share them all.  Besides many are private and very special.  I still have not mentioned the best part of the trip!  Mickey and Minnie!!!  Although I lean toward Minnie a bit more!

Time does fly by.  Whether you are having fun or not.  It has been a long while since my last post, and unfortunately, this one is going to be anything much either.

I have lots to do.  Work. Fabric store. Homework.  I've cleaned all weekend and now need a few days to just rest.  I still have more than a thousand photos to upload from out last vacay on the Disney cruise.  My relationship has gotten stronger over the past month.  I once winced at the thought of separation, unfulfilled expectations, but those are a hazy memory now that we have found our common ground.  Love like ours can last a lifetime, if we allow it to happen.

Have a beautiful day.
