January 2015 yikes !!

Well 2015 has snuck up on me and now January is almost over. It is hard to believe how fast time does go by. A lot has happened to me since Rich's death this past July. I still miss him and sometimes get down in the doldrums. I can hear him coming down the hallway only to turn and find no one there. I guess this is all normal and will eventually get better. I have been traveling. As you saw in my last post I went to Maryland to see family in August. In November I made a long trip to England to meet stitching friends of about 7-8 years. It was nice to finally see them in person after chatting with them for so long.clare and her husband offered their home to me while I was there and I had a wonderful time getting to know them both. They have a lovely home.

This a view from the garden. Clare and I roamed all over most days to see the sites. It is such a beautiful country. On Thursday we went o London for the day and saw Buckingham Place, Harrods,Big Ben and the Parlament building, the Eye of London, Tower Bridge, and the Tower of London. It was all breathtaking. During the afternoon we stopped at Knighsbridge Green Hotel for tea. So wonderful. Here we sat at 3in the afternoon drinking champagne, I felt like royalty.
