Headed to Boston

Okay, Kids. I'm headed to Boston for four days to enjoy the wedding of my terrific half-sister, Rosie.

Love that Boston Skyline!

According to, temperatures will be in the 30s the whole time and I didn't see any predictions of snow so that's a relief!

I managed to cram four days worth of clothing and necessities into my carry-on. I had to practically sit on the doggone thing to get it closed but hey, at least this way I won't have to wait around at the baggage claim area or worse, wait for them to deliver it the following day. Logan is famous for losing luggage.

Speaking of luggage, I know this is a dreadful picture but I wanted to show you the charm I made for my carry-on. Since I wear my St. Christopher medal on a chain around my neck, (along with St. Bernadette and a cross) I thought I'd put a St. Therese medal on my luggage. Sorry the picture is blurry but it gives you some idea, anyway. It's made with Swarovski crystals and firepolished Czech glass beads with silverplated filigree beadcaps. Fancy, huh?

Since I hate flying so much, I thought it might be a good idea to sort of cheer myself up by wearing something bright and colorful so today, the motto is: "Think Pink".
I made this set to wear to my friend Keli's bridal shower and liked it so much I decided to wear it today. It looks a bit cattywompus in the photo but that's just because it's on the hanger. When traveling, I always like to wear an attractive set of handcrafted jewelry--and carry plenty of business cards! You never know who might be seated next to you. ;)

Okay, well - I guess I'll toddle on out to the kitchen and fix myself a good breakfast. Dunno when I'll eat again because I'm not inclined to pay the outrageous prices demanded in airport eateries. haha That's okay - my brother Tony's wife, Maria is fixing me Shrimp Scampi for dinner. YUM!

Catch you all on the flipside Tuesday.

Be good to each other!
