Sunday, December 30th
After church today we left for Birmingham. Frank has to be at the airport at 5:30 in the morning and we live 2 hours from the airport so we decided to go stay the night at the Clarion which is near the airport. We went to JoAnne's Fabrics and I loaded up on yarn for my frilly scarves. We also went to Brookstone and traded in an adaptor thing for Frank to take with him to Israel. Dinner at Olive Garden and back to the hotel for the night. Morning will be arriving early.
Monday, December 31st 31st - New Years Eve
I came home and crashed, made a few scarves with my new yarn, then prepared for our annual New Years Eve soup supper at the church. I was in bed by 10:30. Frank was somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean headed for Zurich and then Tel-Aviv.

Today I went to the VF outlet in Leeds with Marian, then to LaGrange Walmart to get her some thread so I could teach her how to make frilly scarves. Wayne and Amy called when I got home and invited me to dinner and to meet little Miss Marleigh. Is she not the cutest thing. I had already eaten so I watched her while they ate. Not to hard she just slept. Marleigh lives in Virginia where her daddy is stationed. She was born in December. Frank uploaded a picture of sunrise on the Sea of Gallilee.
Thursday, January 3rd
Had my hair cut today and picked up the materials to make Jo's wreaths for her wedding in February. I can't wait to make them look like her picture. I have four to make. Frank uploaded a few more shots from Israel today of the Jordan River and the judgment seat.

Mickey D's in Israel....only don't expect a cheeseburger there because it is not kosher.

Swimming in the Dead Sea. Frank said the water was so nasty.
Preserved lemons made by my niece Ramona. I can't wait to make my Morracan chicken and use them. Time to go finish up my sermon for tomorrow since I am filling in for Frank. Hope you have a great week.
