Christmas at our New House

I bought this panel at the Corbin Mill Quilt Shop in Liberty, Missouri a couple of years ago. It is flannel and very sweet.

I decided to finally make the stockings from it. There is a fourth one that is not on the table but it is up on my fireplace. It has a teddy bear on it.

Here they are on our fireplace and our Christmas Tree. I really Love our house! It is so exciting to have a house that I want to decorate! No presents yet, though.

By the way, it will be in the 70's tomorrow. Winter in California!

San Diego Trip

My Husband Bruce and I went to San Diego for our 31st Anniversary, the weekend after Thanksgiving. On Saturday, we were going to go to the San Diego Zoo but it rained most of the day so we went right to the hotel. We are only about an hour and a half away so we will go back to the zoo later.

Bruce got us this great room with a balcony, on the 9th floor, overlooking the Bay.

We spent the whole day out there watching the boats and people. It was a little cool but very fun.

A glass (plastic cup) of wine helped keep me warm! The view was amazing!

A ship sailed around the harbor and near sundown, shot off his cannon. It was so cool!

The Holland America cruise ship Oosterdam was docked right below us. It sailed Saturday night.

The whole process of leaving was pretty interesting. It blew it's horn as it left. Very impressive! Just like in the movies.

It backed out and then...

...it was gone!
Sunday, we went to see the San Diego Chargers kick the Kansas City Chiefs butts! It was pretty sad. Bruce wouldn't let me wear red so I wore some red earrings. It was probably a good thing because some of the drunker San Diego fans gave the Chiefs fans a lot of trouble! It was quite hostile.
We took the train to the stadium so we left at half time to beat the rush and go back to the hotel to get our car. The train system makes it quite easy to get around town. A Great Weekend!!!
Football is on today and Bruce gets the TV for the day so I think I am off to my sewing room. Maybe I will actually get something done in there. At least no football will be on my TV!
