I normally use the fish hook style, but I found some cute posts with flowers to try for this pair.
I think today must be the start of the Heart of Texas Balloon Glow, if not, the aliens have invaded using hot air balloons! (I know, bad humor, gotta get back to teaching.) So far this morning, I've seen about fifteen balloons fly over our house. They were so close, I could hear the firing of the hot air!

In two weeks I am going back to Ponca City to help my mom recover from knee replacement surgery. Then school starts Aug. 8th. Where has all the summer gone? I am looking forward to school though. I will be teaching the same subjects (Rdg, Eng, SS), but I will have five classes. The school added a second fifth grade class this fall. We are really growing.
Hobby Lobby has become my new friend. I found this charger, these candles, and the stones ... all under $15!
I made my first two throw pillows! It was so easy. I just used the material left over from the sheet-curtains!
I have been making many pairs of earrings. I don't know, maybe I will start selling them. It's a fun hobby.

I had to get some cool "presents" for my niece and nephew. Sarah is eating a light up Ring Pop, and John is showing off a giant pickle.

Day one - just arrived - yes, it is very windy!
Our server discovered it was our ten year anniversary, and he got some other servers together and sang to us - quite embarrassing.
Then he covered our faces with a napkin and had us kiss - even more embarrassing!
Then he folded the napkin and gave Roy Madonna boobs - beyond embarrassing!
And then devil horns - finally, the truth is told!
All products on the ship are tax and duty free, which meant we could buy lots of alcohol - we brought home 9 liters! This one is my new favorite. It is not sold in the US. It is coffee liqueur on one side and vanilla liqueur on the other. When you pour it out, it swirls together. Soooo yummy!
We ate at the popular Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville in Cozumel.
On a scale of one to ten, I would say our cruise experience was a nine. The ship's crew was outstanding, the environment was fun and relaxing, and the time we spent together was much needed. I am sure we will cruise again.
