Feb. 2007

We just got back from a cruise to the Caribbean and it was wonderful to get away. Its not that bad here in San Antonio but it was nice to get away. The weather was great. We cruised on Holland America out of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Our ports of call were Tortola, Grand Turks, St. Thomas (USVI) and Half Moon Cay. I even found some jewelry (small pieces) that I liked in St. Thomas. I don’t often buy jewelry but it was nice to find some pieces I liked.

I did take my camera with me and I hope to get some pictures up. I’ll put up a link as soon as I get those up.

We are still working on the house and actually had some work done while we were away. They’ve been putting up new lighting, molding and painting. Its making a tremendous difference. Before we left we did order a new couch, love seat and coffee table. We also ordered some drapes and carpet. That is why the painting was done while we were gone. They are painting a couple of rooms so furniture has been moved around so they can paint. But once the painting is done the carpet will be installed. Hopefully shortly after that the furniture will be available and we will have more of the house done. It won’t be the end of the work, but at least we keep getting closer.

After our last bit of work we had a couple of oops’. We sprung a leak in the ceiling in two places. Found those one night when it rained pretty continuously. But all in all it is coming along. Its a lot slower process then I expected. Its been an interesting learning experience.
