Sunday post

Good afternoon.
I appear to be posting less and less. I guess it's because I don't have  much going on.   :-)
Here's the latest puzzle I'm slowly working on.....
This one is a hard one! A lot of blended colors. But I'm slowly getting it done.
And here's a couple of pics I took as I left the fitness center yesterday.....

I just never get tired of looking at the mountains!
Then I thought I'd share a couple of pics of the ship we'll be on for 14 days......

The Norwegian Star. It holds  2300 people. Kind of small compared to some of the newer ships that hold over 4000. Our Carnival ship Splendor held just over 3000, and that ship in the news a couple of days ago, the Oasis of the Seas, holds 9000! I can't imagine trying to get on and off that ship! It took over 2 hours to get off the Splendor after we docked.
I think we'll like the size of the Star much better.
I also made another batch of breakfast muffins. Craig really likes them!
We gave each other haircuts today. And Craig is making a turkey rice casserole for dinner.
I'm still walking every day. Sometimes twice a day with Craig in the afternoon. And going to the fitness center on Saturday.
Have a routine Doctors appt tomorrow morning. Should go quick as all my test results were normal.
Well, I guess that's all for now.....

A new year begins

Good morning.
And so, a new year begins.......
They seem to be whizzing by faster and faster!
You would think being retired with a lot of time on my hands the days would drag by, but apparently not.   :-)
Here's the latest puzzle we finished.....
And if you look close, you'll see one extra puzzle piece at the top of the puzzle.
Now, I'm very careful when I dismantle the previous puzzle to make sure I get all the pieces back in it's bag so I'm pretty sure this piece came with this puzzle. Now Craig says now we know what happens to the occasional puzzle that has a piece missing. It ends up in a different puzzle! That may very well be!
In other news......
Craig had another birthday. We went to Big Dog's Tavern and had lunch to celebrate.
We have all the decorations and outside lights down and put away.  It's nice doing this in 50 degree weather instead of 30.   :-)
Having brunch next Wed with neighbors and their friends, all of whom are going on our cruise. Getting together to talk about possible plans for the cruise.
Had a hard freeze here a couple of nights ago. Did in all the flowers and leaves on my Bougainvillea vine. To cold even for all the lights I have on the plant. Hopefully, the lights kept it warm enough to protect the wood so I don't have too much die back. Spring will tell!
In a bit, I'll head to the fitness center. Been going there a little more as some morning's it's been a bit too cold to walk.
Well, Happy New Year to you all!
