Chapter 11, Page 15, Book 10

My face in the mirror
Isn't wrinkled or drawn.
My house isn't dirty,
The cobwebs are gone.

My garden looks lovely
And so does my lawn.
I think I might never
Put my glasses back on.

It is MERRY Monday again! Last week seems like a blur to me. Wednesday evening DD, DDIL#5 and I headed down to DS#1's house. We spent the night so that we could leave early on Thursday morning for the airport so that we could celebrate DDIL#1'S 40th birthday. We left cold Ohio and traveled down to Orlando.

Laughter is America's most important export.

The sunshine and warmth there was just wonderful. We stayed in a huge super luxurious hotel and saw lots and lots of sights around the area. My first view of the Magic Kingdom castle was very exciting! I've never been there before and have only seen pictures but the real thing is breath taking. The magic of Disney is something to behold for sure.

We spent some wonderful times staying on the hotel grounds too. We were able to put our bathing suits on and bask in the sun by the pool and also spent some relaxing moments in the hot tub there. I cannot remember a time when I've walked so much. We also had a day that we shopped till we literally dropped too!

I've lived a quiet life and have never even had aspirations that I'd be going on a vacation like this. My exciting times are usually the days spent in the peace and quiet of the campground.

If you can dream it, you can do it.

Today it will be back to business as normal. Normal this week means caring for our Mr. Wonderul. I'll be sharing more pictures in the days to come.

Happy MERRY Monday everyone!

Glad you had a great time, but when it is a vacation or a visit it is always good to be back home. We spend most of our time just north of Orlando. BUT where ever we are is home.
Take care and have a great week.
