This Is Where I Am Right Now!

 . . . and why I have been awol again . . .   We are on the beautiful island of St. John getting some much needed R & R.  Clara was able to join us for a long weekend, which we spent camping on Cinnamon Bay.  We've been snorkeling a lot -- saw my first ever Moray eel! -- hiking (even me!), and eating lots of good food.  We are off on a jaunt to Tortola today.  We'll hit the beach again tomorrow and Friday and head home on Saturday, just in time to spring forward.  I am hoping the wild, wet weather there will be a thing of the past by then, and that my daffodils will be well on their way to blooming.

Thanks for all the comments on my runner.  Courtney:  I'll explain how I do the background when I get back.  I am not very scientific about dyeing, so I will have to dye up a batch and write down what I do, then report back.

Wish you all could be here with me.  It's the next best thing to heaven.

Sarah, I wish I was there, sounds like a heavenly place . I feel a bit jealous. Here we are still seeing lots of snow and ice but the sun is shining. Blooms will have to wait a bit longer.
I hope that you have a safe vacation and safe trip back to Home Sweet Home. JB
