Back Home!

A new week – and I’m antsy as can be. I want to be home nesting. Creating. Cleaning. Bringing out Halloween!

We made it back from the lake yesterday – Gypsy was bellowing like Ethel Merman for awhile (I forgot his carsick pills, though he did calm down after a bit.) When I named him Gypsy for the celebrated Broadway show, I wasn’t really thinking of Ethel! (He was such a tease… and, as a foundling, truly a Gypsy!).

It seemed to take forever to put things away this time. The house is a mess – half Halloween decorations coming up, about a quarter of toss-about… And all that yarn!

This is a short week – on Thursday I head to Niagara on the Lake, Ontario to see two shows at Shaw Festival (“Wonderful Town” and “Follies In Concert”) and hang out with my forever-friend Suzanne at yarn shops, antique stores and places that are “cute” (which Rick so thoughtfully calls “old lady shops”).

Loved your ABBA story! I am on a total ABBA kick now. I listened to the soundtrack for Mama Mia for 8 hours straight at work today! Now I have to hunt up my ABBA greatest hits CD so I can listen to the real thing!

The Halloween decoration is very funny. In Germany we haven`t celebrated Halloween in former times, first for about 10 years it becomes more and more popular, but a lot of people don`t like it, because Halloween is the same day like an important relious day here.
My husband and I we will go on a short holiday to Switzerland from Thursday until Sunday.On Friday there is a holiday in Germany because of the reunion of West Germany and the former DDR.
We will stay at the Lake Lugano, that`s not far from the Lake Maggiore. The countryside there is absolutly marvellous, I will show pictures of it in my blog when we are back.
Enjoy your trip !
Best wishes,
Iris

Boo hiss to Rick--old lady shops! Ha! Gyp is just adorable. Bella does that too in the beginning. I keep her covered (like a bird) and she settles down. Glad you made it home safe and getting a little decorating done! xo

Awh,,Gypsy looks happy to be home. And lots of yarn balls for him to play with too. Lucky you to get to have a short week and then go have a fun time with your friend!
Can't wait to see all the pics from the fun time.
