Come to think of it, I did leave my heart there ...



So ... I have not been around here leisurely blogging because I spent last week on a Magical Moving Tour, getting Ms. Gee all settled in her new place in the Bay Area. We took the drive in two days. The first day was mostly desert (meh) but the second day (Oxnard to SF on the 101) was just about the most beautiful one day drive I have ever taken. Those two days seemed like ... um, four days.

Once there we began the car unpacking (think clowns and VWs/phone booths) and then spent the next four days doing the box unpacking/stuff arranging/box throwing away part which seemed like at least ... ten days. And by that I mean ten days of pure unadulterated fun/exhaustion. We managed to fit in one day of fabric shopping (Thimblecreek and Stonemountain) and one day of tourist-y adventures which included (among other things) clam chowder in a bread bowl and cable cars (see above).

Don't think for one moment that I wouldn't do it all again in a heartbeat. I am afraid to go up and work in The Kingdom because there is no one for my Bernina to duel with. I am soothing my heart by calling Ms. Gee no less than 27 times a day and looking forward to a visit from Mrs. Dub and her girls in just a couple of weeks.

The way I see it I gained an extra week of life where I didn't actually have to age.

And that was indeed a San Francisco Treat.

I'm sure life will be a bit different without Ms. Gee around. I hope she's doing well. The trip sounds fun for both of you. I've been spending quite a bit of time with my mom lately, and there's nothing like it. I just loved this post.

Glad you had a good time! Missed you here. Looking forward to a date with you, my friend!

11 days ... but who's counting?

(And curse that Ms. Gee for leaving before we come ... and moving to a cool place without me ... and having more talents than me ... and not liking corn.)

p.s. (My word verification was "herpepal." What does that mean?)

Waaah--come back! I will take you to more quilt shops this time and not make you eat at the mall so much, I swear!
