DH (aka Joe) and I spent the weekend at a sailing boat show called Strictly Sail, held in Jack London Square in Oakland, CA. We had fun and met many new friends and other sailors.
What I noticed most about our trip is how refreshed I feel this morning and eager to get to my quilting work. I attribute it to time spent on other interests. My theory is that if you feel weighed down by your quilting queue, or deadline for a project, it helps to put it away for a few days and go do something else you enjoy for a refreshing change of pace.
The hotel we stayed in was actually the hotel we honeymooned in a few decades ago. It brought back memories for us, and we had a laugh remembering how it came to be.
Joe had first booked a nearby hotel, based on a recommendation by someone he knew. So we show up, and imagine my surprise when the hotel was really awful, complete with a adult theater next door. We checked out, walked down to the nicest hotel right on the waterfront, and I think they took pity on us, so they gave us their best room right on the water. Honeymoon was saved- plus we have a funny honeymoon hotel story to remember!! LOL
Happy Monday to you! Carla
