Only 7 days until we leave to go on our cruise!

For those of you that really know us, we are WEN girls.  This means we use Wen hair products  by Chaz Dean.....this picture is of his two grown dogs and the two new puppies that he is getting.  Chaz uses his products on his dogs and they are beautiful!

Hector and Spencer anxiously await the arrival of the two new puppies! 

Today the day started out with a visit to the doctors....she said I was doing well and just need to bring my blood sugar down a little.  She is a P..A. and is very good!

After the appointment , off we went to Starbucks....had breakfast and went home to spend the day sewing!

THE GREAT QUILT GIVE AWAY!  If you would like to be included, post me a note.  As it stands now....if you are a friend of mine or Vicki's , on Facebook....you are in!  !The drawings will start on Friday October the 18th.....you could be the lucky winners!
On Thursday I will post the photo of the quilt!  Remember, they are far from perfect!
Now I want you all to know that the quilts have some little booboo's that Vicki had to repair....I am still getting use to the sewing machine and there are still days when I think she does not like me,,,,that is the machine Iam talking about.  You will find the mistakes that I made on the front will be evident on the back side....sorry!  There will be 4 quilts ready for the first drawing!
WELCOME TO THE msAMSTERDAM and my virtual cruise to.....

Day 22 Kobe, Japan

What a difference a day makes….  Yesterday was picture perfect and today got a bit soggy at times.  Our scheduled departure has been a subject of intense review by the Captain and his staff the last couple of days because of the typhoon activity.  The latest is that we will remain here overnight and leave at 5:00 in the morning.  WE will not be going to Naha, Okinawa but instead to Nagasaki, Japan.  Tomorrow will be a sea day and could be a bit bouncy with the weather conditions.  That’s all part of the adventure….  Today, I went out to explore Kobe with Bruce & Sandy and Marianne.  We first took the monorail to the Sannomiya Rail Station.  We then headed out on foot to see the Ikuta Shinto Shrine.  It was fantastic!  It was highlighted by some ceremonies involving small children dressed in traditional clothing.  The place was just beautiful! Then we headed to the 24th floor of the City Hall for some scenic views.  Despite the rain we explored some parks and shops, including Chinatown.  It was a fun day with friends….
