One, Two and Away I Go!

Spring Break is here!  I know that sounds funny because I live in sunny Florida, but we are going away.  While lots of you dear blogging friends come to Florida for a visit, we are going south.  To the Caribbean.  Ah....the islands, sun, sand and a bit of tropical flavor!
 I have painted my toe nails.
 I have gathered some books to read on the beach.
I have found some beautiful yarn that reminds me of the ocean to make a simple drop stitch shawl.

I am ready.

Have a great week, see you soon.

Awwww can't wait to get my toenails painted too! But it's still boot weather around here (well, for me, at least...)
I just love that yarn...such a "me" color:D
Have a great time--if that Thirteenth tale is the one I think and read a while back, it's great :)

Meredith, have a fabulous time in the sun and ocean breeze. You are all set with toes, books and yarn, you only need a bathing suit.
Happy for you, xoRobin❤

Wishing you a wonderful trip...maybe you can check out a yarn store while you are there, at least get in a few stitches, too.

Have a great time. :)

I am so needing a vacation...I am jealous! Seems like all I do is work around here, and run to appointments. Yesterday I did the sheets, today I did blankets and took the dogs to the groomers. Tomorrow I will do the laundry....we are either really clean people or really dirty ones, lol. Have a great time on the beach, let us know how the books turn out and the shawl will turn out beautiful as always.
(((HUGS))) Susanne :)

Have an amazing Spring Break! You deserve a real "break" after the last few weeks. I LOVED The Thirteenth Tale, and cannot wait to see your shawl. Drop stitch scarves are favorites of mine, though I've never attempted to knit one myself. Relaxation vibes headed your way!

Man.. dang.. you lucky dawg, you! I've never been there and I sure wish I could visit. At least we have a 5 day stay at our beach at the end of April... for my birthday! Have a great time!! Take lots of photos to make us jealous with! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
