Hi from Sea

The First Day of the vacation is getting to the cruise ship. Here I am riding on the bus from Orlando, Florida, to the docks in Cape Canaveral.

The most famous ships at the Cape are the space shuttles, but there are some really big cruise liners there too it turns out. That's the space port in the background as I wave goodbye to land.

Once I found my way to my cabin. I'm a single occupant in a double sized room. The cabin steward shaped the towels into a little animal.

Yes, that is the "new" me - sans forty pounds and several inches of hair. What do you think? Do you think anyone will even recognize me?

Time for a vacation! Am taking a short trip on a cruise ship. Will say "Hi!" from the Bahamas.

Wishcasting Wednesday

Jamie asks "What do you wish to acknowledge yourself for?"

I want to acknowledge myself for facing adversity and becoming a better person because of it. I'm ok. I've made it through this. Things are never going to be the same again, they're going to be better.

When I first moved into the place I live now, I found a bedraggled, old Rose of Sharon in the alleyway. I trimmed back the weeds and the overgrowth so the light to get to it. Look at it now. This is how I feel too.

Put on your dancing shoes!

The lights are ready, the music begins ... may I have this dance?

Still can't believe it. I'm dancing. Just beginning, but the studio has a program especially for absolute beginning foot-crushers like me. It's actually a lot of fun. My instructor says that pretty soon I'll be good enough to dance without injuring anyone's toes. Can't wait for that :-)
