Still looking for my land legs...

I was glad to hear that I was not the only one from our cruise who still felt like she was swaying a bit as if I were still on the ship. It has almost abated. The first pic is the view from the cross over from our side of the ship to the other looking down the Promenade. This is where the two parades were held both of which I missed. One shot is of me at the falls in the garden we visted in Jamaica and the other of me playing the slots one of the two times I visited the Casino. My mom loved the slots and so I gave them a few spins just for her. I am not a big gambler by any means as anyone who knows me can testify about. When we first entered the Windjammer (a restaurant that was like a huge cafeteria), these carved foods caught our attention right away along with the ice carvings. One of the last pics is of our beautiful dining room. We have the most darling waitress, Ana, from Romania. She called us her "Mama Table"! lol

We picked out our pavers for our garden walk way, the extension on the drive way and the front porch yesterday and work is scheduled to begin a week from tomorrow. Yeah! I can't wait to see how this looks. I keep humming an old childhood song, "White coral bells upon a slender stalk, lilies of the valley deck my garden walk. Oh, don't you wish that you could hear them ring? That will happen only when the faeries sing!". We bought some beautiful blooming plants yesterday and E will plant some today. One of the most beautiful ones was foxglove (digitalis) in two colors. We placed them all outside of the lanai as these are poisonous to our cats and if any cat would eat at these, it would be The Boys!

Hope to finally scrap tomorrow. The kids are coming over to swim (weather permitting) and for an early dinner today. Have missed them one and all and have small gifts for them from the cruise!

Have a great one!

P.S. Quietfire is having a couple of very cool contests. Check them out with the link

Beautiful pictures Jules. I'm beginning to think your life is a fairy tale. :)

Love the photos...especially the one that shows you taking the photo in the mirror. You look so serious by the falls...almost didn't recognize you! It takes a while to stop swaying after the week long cruises. Can you tell what day it is without looking at the carpet in the elevator?
