One Man's Dream!

What a great room!
We wandered through the Walt Disney museum at Hollywood Studios today. It is called One Man's Dream. I love how they change up on of the exhibits.
   This room caught my eye as I am an avid Mickey Mouse collector. I love the bookcase that holds all things Mickey. It also has books in with the other collectibles. I am thinking of changing my collection to include other items.
  This picture will help me remember how much I like this exhibit.
   We were at Hollywood Studios for the morning. We were able to do Toy Story Mania. Russ beat me as always. It is such a great ride.
Everyone heads here first.
 We headed for Epcot. To eat at the French pavilion. Yummy sandwiches were just right for us along with a ginormous chocolate chip cookie.
French pastries








   We decided to try and use a fast pass to get on Test Track. It worked out great cause we could get n in 30 minutes. We got there just in time. There was a 75 minute wait for everyone else.
  We went on Soarin probably for the last time cause they
are closing this ride for February and March to
add another track. 
  We had a lovely snack in Sunshine Seasons where I took this picture of the balloons. So pretty.  I am ready for bed so I will close with balloons. 
  Tomorrow we go to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom.

Happy Halloween from Disney World!



Ready for Halloween!
I am so proud of myself. I'm ready for Halloween way before Halloween. That is very unusual for me. I have to admit that I found this idea on Pinterest. Since I have been sick I needed a quick but cute idea. I printed this out and stamped "Happy Hallween". I am ready when we get back from our trip.
  We are at Walt Disney World with my sister, Andrea, and her daughter, Emma, and her friend , Jillian. We are staying at Beach Club. This is our favorite resort.
We went exploring when we got here to get
The lay of the land. The weather is quite warm
but lovely. We walked over to Boardwalk and
ate a late dinner of nachos, corn dogs, and a
Beach club at Disney
meatball sandwich.
  The girls went swimming in the pool and I am
here working on my blog in an air conditioned room. Love it. We are planning the next few days to get the most fun here.
 The rooms here are so spacious. We have a two bedroom. There is a living room with a kitchenette.  The best part is that there are two bathrooms. It doesn't hurt that we have a washer dryer in the room either.

 Well, it is getting late. The girls are still at the pool. The bed is calling my name. Looks like Russ and I might be going to Epcot tomorrow with everyone else heading to Downtown Disney.  It will be fun no matter what cause we will be in shorts!
    Here is a picture of a cute little friend we met while exploring the grounds.

Missing Mom

Miss you Mom!
 I have not been working on much for projects this past summer or fall due to the illness of my mom and her passing into glory on September 2nd.
  Mom has been living with Russ and I for the past 4 years. It has been such a blessing to have her here with us.She loved to read and enjoyed her family getting together for whatever occasion or event. She was a painter, and played the piano ( self-taught). She would walk around the flower gardens and enjoy the spring when plants would begin sprouting up. I shall miss her very much.
  The stress of her  illness and her passing was difficult  for us all. As a result I ended up with shingles. A mild case thank the Lord, for I had the vaccine two years ago. I am now dealing with Vertigo. Not a pleasant feeling to have at all.
   But time and life go on. The hard part of losing someone you love is the moving on without them. When I am on the computer in the early hours of the morning, I hear a creak in the house and I forget and think it is Mom stirring. I am not sure I  will ever get over that feeling of her presence.  Not sure I want to either.
   Anyway, I have not really done much of anything in the way of project. I have worked on a few cards that I have given to people for various reasons. I will post those another time.
Love her so much...
 My greatest joy right now is babysitting for our granddaughter, Evy. She is such a blessing to our family.
We see her every Tuesday and Thursday. I love her expressions and how everything is new to her.
  She loves Micky Mouse and is so enthralled when the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse comes on TV. Music is another treat for her. The songs on that show will stop her in her tracks to listen to the music.
   I think seeing her and watching her grow has helped me to deal with losing my mom. Family and friends are a great comfort too.
   I am feeling ready to start paper crafting again now that I am on the mend. My next post will hopefully  have some pictures of  projects that I have started and not yet  finished finally done. Til the next posting then...
