I Wish I Could Make Everything Better

I just got from a trip to Cincinnati, Ohio where I got to spend some time with my Aunt Gloria. She had fallen and was in Rehab for a few days so I surprised her with a visit.

Also, our daughter is in Athens, Greece for her 30th birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMILY!!! She flew to Florence, Italy first for 7 days and now 7 days in Greece. Getting there was a nightmare and it took her 3 WHOLE DAYS to get there instead of 18 hours like it should have. Travel is just terrible right now with all the cancelled flights/delayed flights. One good thing is she had to spend the night one night in Paris, France so I talked her into getting a hotel room and she took a train to see the Eiffel Tower. So that was a nice added addition to her trip that she was not expecting!! She flew solo but met up with 40 others in a tour group and all are aged 18-29 (she was allowed to be included since she was 29 when she booked the trip!). Looks like she's having the time of her life!!

Well, Hello There Hummingbirds

I got this hummingbird House Mouse stamp in the mail today. I saw a card last week using this image and I was on a mission to find it. I found it at an online store in Massachusetts and I got it today!! Very fast shipping and I thought her pricing was pretty good too. Here is the website - K.G. Krafts and you can find here: (I just looked at the website and I no longer see its for sale so she may be out of them).
