Thank you so much for all the beautiful comments you left for me yesterday. I cannot tell you how much it comforted my heart and I am grateful to you for your virtual hugs.
Today we are taking our visiting family members to Mexico for the day—which is only about an 1½ hour’s drive away from Tucson. The mission is to buy Mexican vanilla and find a hand-tooled leather guitar case for my daughter for Christmas. I’m trying to do all handmade gifts for Christmas but she really does need the guitar case and that particular project is not in my skill expertise.
This is a funny-odd sort of thought but I think it will be so meaningful to re-enter the U.S. through the border crossing on this day of remembrance of our veterans. A symbolic coming home kind of thing—certainly quite different than that experienced by those men and women returning from war. It will remind me of my blessings in being a U.S. citizen.
Can you see the metal star on one side of our garage door? My husband installed hooks for me on both sides of the garage years ago. Every season and holiday time, I have a different little display to put on both sides of the garage—and if you sit still long enough at my house, you’ll get decorated, too.
On our way back from Mexico, we are picking up the projects we made Saturday morning which had to “cure” until today. We’ll take pictures and then I’ll share what it was tomorrow. I think you’re going to love this—I certainly do.
