Well my first plane ride was awesome.  I was so surprised that it seemed so slow.  It seemed like I was riding in a blimp not a jet plane.  Take off and landing was smooth, that was the only time you could feel how fast you were really going. 
Even though it was a trip for my Uncle Dario's funeral it was a fun trip revisting all the family and seeing Monterey again.  My grandchildren had never seen the ocean let alone run their toes through the sand so it was nice seeing it through their eyes. 

I've got to get in the mood again for creating.  Being off a week and my hand hurting I really am finding it hard to start again.  Bunnies are waiting so I guess I better get to them or Easter will be gone before I know it!

First Plane Trip

Sad to say my Uncle Dario died last week and I will be leaving on Tuesday to attend his funeral.  He was a gentle man, very devoted to his catholic church and I know he is with Jesus in heaven.  I will be flying with my Mom for the first time ever.  I'm a little apprehensive about the idea,  everyone tells me it's not bad except for the lifting and landing, I guess I'll survive it.  I will be going to Monterey, CA my home town were I was born and raised for the first 10 years of my life.  I'm looking forward  to visiting  my grandmom's home (it is marked as a historical site now) and our old play yard called "Dennis the Menace Playground."  I hear it's still there and I remember all the good times we had at Pebble Beach on the pier.   I wish my husband and daughters were going with me but someone has to stay and watch the animals.  I closed my shops until I return so if anyone wants anything they can leave me a convo and I will reply as soon as possible.
Everyone have a nice week!
