    Tracey - I can't tell you how excited I am! My worry is, the world will still be in covid turmoil, or Saga will have gone bust by then. We paid the deposit on my credit card, so we have some come back if it goes belly up. It's all super insured, of course.
    Otherwise, I get very good value from my cruises as I dream about them all the time in the year before I go, and reminisce about them for at least a month when I come home. :D It also might motivate me to shave off the pounds creep of the last few years. That would be worth every penny.

    Barbara - We did go for it! Hooray! There is no saying that we can ever do this again. At our age every precious thing could be the last time. Carpe diem indeed. I will be digging deep into life savings.
    The ship experience is more important in some ways than the ports. We love living in a fantasy world once a year! Couldn't do it last year, so saved our money up from the cancellations.

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxxx

    Machka- Every time you post your map of where you have ridden; I am reminded of the second to last episode of Sherlock, when he tells off his brother (who is tracking him) in a walk. lol What would you spell out on a ride, if you could?

    Unfortunately we don't have a lot of grid system roads here so it is difficult to "write" or "draw" things when I ride. But I have thought of trying to "draw" animals. :)

    Kind of almost like a scorpion! :smiley:

    Playing catch-up again and losing 😂. You are posting quicker tha I can rad 😂

    Weekly grocery shopping done and dusted (literally 😂). Winter is having a last gasp at the moment. Snow, hail and winds blowing down from the north.

    The tulips and daffodils are being blasted. My magnolia and camellias had started bursting forth, but the cold has stalled them, but only temporarily.

    We are planning a walk after lunch with DYD and her dogs if the weather allows.

    Not sure why, but my weight has dropped a couple of lbs despite having had Easter goodies over the last week. This process is often a mystery. more slowly than we are posting.

    I need a laptop, my old iMac still works but won’t connect to wifi or the Cloud. It’s ok when connected to router with Ethernet cable but that’s not possible. Always had Apple products but begrudge the money they charge. Tom just says get what you want, we saved a few grand not going on holiday last year. But still think I’ll get a ‘not Apple’ model. I love my iPhone and iPad. Still cogitating.

    Second jab today and Zoom knit n natter after that

    Weather still awful, cold and just seen some snowflakes again. We had sun, cold wind, hail and snow yesterday, only thing missing was thunder and lightning

    Rainy Wednesday morning in Arkansas... ran up to Walmart to pick up a few things for the rest of the week, and zip, right back to my safe haven. The rain is actually warm, since it's nearly 70 degrees outside. When it's cold and rainy, all my joints hurt so much I can't enjoy the rain--and after living in the desert a total of ten years of my adult life, I really do like the rain. Warm spring and summer rains make me happy.

    They do not, however, make Egg happy. She's a cranky kitty this morning.

    Have talked to my best friend a lot of late, and one thing she suggested is that I develop a schedule of sorts - such as wash the sheets on Fridays, deep clean one room a week, quilt one day each week, paint on another and so on. I am somewhat reluctant, and I'm not sure why. For those of you who are retired or don't work outside the home, do you have a schedule?

    Cheri - I loved your assessment of your loved ones. We do tend to give a lot to those we love, and they begin to expect that... so any change is taken personally. Glad you stood your ground. You're one tough cookie.

    Chores are done - can't hang laundry out because of the rain, so it will wait for tomorrow. Crochet, I think. I'm making a midnight-blue afghan for my oldest grandson, and am going to add stars to it after it's complete, in the shape of Orion. It's always been my way of knowing I'm home, even when I lived in England, as I could look up and see the hunter striding across the sky. Tyler's starting to get interested in astronomy, so hopefully will like the afghan.

    Below is the Happisburgh Lighthouse in Norfolk, UK, with Orion directly above.

    Later, y'all,
    Love, Lisa in AR

    Camellias? At this time of year? You're going into spring, aren't you?

    Camellias are a mid-winter flower. Ours have fat little buds on them, and we'll likely start seeing flowers when it gets colder around the end of May.
