Mosaic Monday - Mexican Beauties


I arrived home from Mexico mid-afternoon, tired after two long days of travel. The first day we were up at 5:00 am and drove to San Diego. During the three-hour border lineup, I anticipated the hot shower I would have at the hotel. It did not disappoint.


This morning we were up at 4:00 am to catch a 6:30 am flight to Seattle, then a three hour bus trip to the ferry terminal, and after 90 minutes on the boat, I was more than pleased to walk into Tim's arms. 


I've been talking up a storm since then and doing some unpacking and laundry. But I wanted to let my readers know I'm back, and hope to fill you in on more of my trip this week. It won't be until later on because ... tomorrow I'm driving up to Parksville to move the rest of our furniture down. The movers arrive Tuesday morning. The house there will just have to be empty for potential buyers, allowing them to use their imaginations. Since it's spring break here, it's a good time for me to move. 


I'm linking to Mosaic Monday, hosted once again by Mary of the Little Red House.

So glad that you are safely home with stories to share. Beautiful mosaic...lantana so pretty. Good for you getting your furniture back.

(When we rent John's home, we do little things...really small as there is no furniture and no curtains. I always put a lovely towel on the oven door, a bouquet of silk flowers in a cute or pretty vase on a doily in the center of the table. I leave one or two decorative things on a window sill...a mere hint of what could be...

Your mosaic is wonderful and it sounds like you will be very busy getting organized and arranging furniture after the big move. So take it easy and don't work too hard. You will need some rest too Lorrie! Looking forward to hearing about your trip!

Reminds me of the belts and stuff I brought back from Mexico many years ago.
