Souvenirs from Puerta Vallarta

Garnet dragon flys.

The lady said it was handmade lace but I really suspect it is machine-made lace nonetheless, it was beautiful and looks marvelous on my round pie-fluted glass dining table. She kept dropping the price and I kept looking.  I never said one word but when she got to $25, I said I'll take it.

Grateful Friday

I am grateful that my daughter cancelled her trip and I found a last minute flight to Monterey for Christmas which was cheaper than any flight this last year.

I am grateful that I was able to attend my granddaughter's blessing in church while I was visiting.

I am grateful to be home even though it is an icebox in Utah right now with at least a foot of snow on the ground.

The sad part of my week is that my older cat died while I was gone. He was 17 1/2 years old.

I am so very sorry about your cat, did you have him all his life? The lace is stunning and I would love to see it on your table. And the garnet earrings are wonderful, really beautiful.

I am glad you have so many wonderful things to be grateful about - and I am so sorry about the loss of your cat.

Oh-I am so sorry about your cat, Ruth. Maybe he was waiting for you to be gone so he felt "free" to die.
Your treasures are wonderful- xo Diana

I'm so sorry to hear about your cat, I'm sure you'll miss him terribly as they become one of the family, don't they? You brought some lovely souvenirs home from your holiday, special things to remind you of a special trip.

Thanks for all your visits, Ruth. I'm SO SORRY about your cat. Mine is sick right now and even though special food for her diet is terribly expensive for me, I went out today and bought some. She's 17 years old. I still want her to be with us more time. Susan
