Location: Cove, Oregon
Status: Retired and Extremely HAPPY!
Yes, no kidding, I'm here. I don't have the words to describe how ELATED I am to finally be here in lovely Oregon. I flew down today, from Anchorage. I was so excited, that I couldn't even sleep the night before. I went to bed, but got up three times, trying to make myself tired enough to finally fall asleep. I got up and read most often, since I am in the middle of a good book. I finally just got up at 3:10 am, for a 7:00 flight.
My DH and I flew to Seattle, to change planes and then fly into Pasco. It's a 2 and 1/2 hour drive from Pasco to Cove. In Seattle, we had a two hour wait between planes. It was POURING rain in Seattle - surprise. But, it was interesting to watch people in the terminal. We are a very diverse nation, some that wear the most interesting things to the airport. Of course, I am the most boring dresser on the planet, so I can't point fingers - my usual outfit is a pair of jeans, polar fleece top, and Merrill loafers or sneakers. I do not like to shop, and I decided a long time ago that I wanted people to accept me for the quality of work I performed or the integrity of my actions - not my clothing style.
I am now sitting in Oregon - in a comfortable chair - with my lovely lab at my feet, and the winter weather is a low hum in the background. I have taken a hot shower, put on some fluffy PJ's, and prepared a very good cup of hot chocolate. I'm pretty much in heaven right now. There is a fire in the fireplace, and the house is quiet.
I have completed two new lessons at Hummie's World. I am sharing freebies of chains, and some scalloped templates. Hope that you find a use for them! Each download has at least one additional bonus, not shown on the preview. Thanks for dropping by, and leave me a comment to let me know you are out there and interested in more freebies.
Tomorrow is my first full day in Oregon! Sigh. I am SO happy!
