Happy To Be Home ~ Part 1

Hello my lovely friends!

I made it home safe and sound from Vancouver, BC.
And although the conference was FANTASTIC
the weather PERFECT
and we saw some BEAUTIFUL places,
after six days and five nights I was more than ready to come home.

Beautiful Ocean


Pretty Beaches



Fun Street Names



Fantastic Views



Amazing Colors



Lush Forests
(Stanley Park)



Unexpected Sightings
(that's for Wayne who likes to watch Finding Bigfoot on Animal Planet)



Relaxing Afternoon



Favorite Tea Stop



Cool Patios


Very Cool!


Enjoyable Refreshments
(Pomegranate Martini and Pomegranate Margarita)



My turkey is in the crockpot
I'm making an apple crisp
and after I lay in my tub for awhile
I will be dressing in something cozy
curling up on the couch with my ipad
and spending the day catching up with all of you.

The snow skipped over us here in Swift Current
(though it did hit towns near us)
but it has been very cold out.

Wishing all my Canadian friends a
Very Happy Thanksgiving!

That is a beautiful place to vacate too, but there's no place like home. Love all the photos. A tree on top, very unusual and unique.

Hey, that's my home town - or at least it was for 25+ years of my life. Nice to see all the familiar landmarks. Glad to see you got good weather, that's a bonus.
