It Was Long Overdue

As most of you know I took almost 3 weeks’ vacation time from work. Honestly it was long overdue and we made no plans for a fabulous getaway. I relished every single moment being home and not waking up to an alarm clock. That was good enough for me! I got lots of sewing done preparing for my Holiday Craft Faires and I put a wee bit of thought into stocking my Etsy shop, but that will still have to wait for awhile. Logistically, that is not going to work for me quite yet. I would essentially have 2 full time jobs and that would not be fun. Since I have decided that I am going to retire Dec. 2012 I am going to take more time off between now and then. I have so much accrued vacation time because I haven’t taken much time off. Now, for the announcement of my upcoming fabulous getaway. Drum roll please…

We are going to go to Texas at the end of September. YES, Texas is fabulous! Sweet Hubby’s sister lives in Texas and we have a new little great nephew that we can’t wait to see. His sister’s birthday is September 29th and….another drum roll please…

I am going to go to the Round Top Antiques Fair! Here is my little confession. I sort of planned this getaway around the show. O.K., not sort of, I flat out planned it around the show but SH reminded me that it was his sister’s birthday too. Now how fabulous is that? This is better than a vacation in Hawaii (which is long overdue too, but I will save that for another story).

Oh and one other thing, I am going to hit Hobby Lobby up BIG TIME. We don't have one in Cali. :(

Acts 2:38

A woman had just returned to her home from an evening of church services , when she was startled by an intruder. She caught the man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled: 'Stop! Acts 2:38!' (Repent and be Baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ , so that your sins may be forgiven.)

The burglar stopped in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.

As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar: 'Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you.'

'Scripture?' replied the burglar. 'She said she had an Ax and Two 38s!

This was just too cute not to share!

I have some catching up to do. Now you would think being on vacation all this time I would have posted more. Well, I have been so busy being busy but I am loving every minute of it.
