1  Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 26 - Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Eamea on: January 12, 2018 10:53:44 AM
It was just 23 degrees when I took Ponyo downtown, but I am quickly running out of time and of course she had to see it!  It's been several years since there has been this much ice on the Mississippi River.

The skies were so grey that the Arch wasn't very shiny.  Sad

The sun came out in the afternoon, so we stopped at Route 66 State Park.  The Meramec River also had some ice but nearly as much.

Ponyo and I are headed for Cairo on Monday.  The temperatures there will be much more suitable for outdoor picture taking!

I have been terrible about posting, but we have been busy!  I first saw Ron Funches on @Midnight, and he cracks me up.  DH and I went to see him at a local comedy club.

A neighboring town has an historic Main Street where characters roam, and you can collect their trading cards.  We met several; here is Ponyo with a Christmas lad who recognized her right away.

This is kind of an ugly thing to look at but fun to play.  Our party host wrapped prizes up with two rolls of Saran Wrap.  One player started unrolling it while the next rolled two dice.  The first player got to keep anything that fell out, but when the second got doubles everything was passed so the roller became the unwrapper and the next person became the roller.  I got Poo-pourri while I was unrolling.  Cheesy

Lastly for this batch:  some holiday traditions just have to be kept, like decorating cookies and putting out the Velveteen Rabbit.

Poor Splash!  I hope he eventually finds his way home.

Smeddley, I am working on cleaning out my craft room, too.  What a mess!  I wish you wouldn't let it get that way.  Tongue

We have been busy the last few weeks.  Ponyo and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  She made three new friends

and sang & danced with us when the guitar and banjo came out.

We stopped in Metropolis, IL to get a picture with Superman.

We saw Rudolph The Musical at the Fox Theatre.  This place is so beautiful; someday I need to take a tour.

We got new packaging at Mother Earth that uses water based ink.  Here's Ponyo checking them out.

Audania1, can you check your PMs?  I particularly need an answer to the first part. Smiley

Ponyo has been helping me take in the scenery.  Unfortunately it's been mostly cloudy whenever I can actually take photos.  She did get to meet this distant cousin at my mom's house.

I learned a new card game, and she helped me remember the rules.

We had a relatively rare fall hail storm (that's usually springtime fun).

Lastly for now, we dropped off a quilt at the longarmer's.  Ponyo couldn't resist giving the rig the once over (that's another customer's quilt).

I hope everyone who was under the weather is at least on the mend if not better already!

Ponyo has had a slow start to her visit.  We went to meet a friend at a Lebanese restaurant for lunch.  The lentil soup was just perfect for the windy day.

I usually keep my LV tucked in the side of my purse, and I got so tickled when I put Ponyo in.  She's the first that could actually look back out at me.  I wasn't sure if she looked surprised or dismayed at having been put there, but I had to laugh.

Yikes!  I had the 20th stuck in my head, so I almost missed signups.  Just sent in my questionnaire for Aurora.

Here are the goodies that came home with Aurora from her visit with PFD in Tampa.  The bags are lovely and will be pressed into service post haste.  The Mickey balloon bag was designed by PFD - so cool!  It was the perfect size for Aurora to ride home in.  Also included was a magnet, a tree of life pendant, a key chain, a WDW first visit pin, and some sunglasses.

Here's a close up of the smaller items.  She couldn't gave gotten the pendant colors any better.  The brown/copper wire is beautiful, and I love the multi-colored stones (especially the purple).  Thanks for being a wonderful swap partner!

Oh, Audania1, that truly sucks.  I'm sorry about your phone!

I had such a fun time meeting up with Smeddley and Lola!  We could totally be friends IRL!  My picture looks pretty much exactly like hers, so I won't post it again.

We were in the path of totality for the eclipse.  I don't think I've ever experienced something so awesome.  I can understand now why people chase these all over the world.  My little point & shoot didn't take the best picture, but here's Clara at totality.

We paid off our mortgage on Monday, and our neighbors left this on the porch for us.

We went to see The Dark Tower, and both DH and I enjoyed it.  The books were fabulous, but I really don't think you need to have read them to follow the movie.

Lastly, we had to have a tree removed on Friday.  We had a severe drought five years ago, and this poor evergreen never really recovered.  These guys were so quick that they had a bunch of lower branches off before I could get a picture.  I'll miss this tree!

I was happy to receive from craftADDchick, but I'm also sad because now I know there's no more squishy fun mail coming my way.  I like how she included regional fabrics; that's something I never even thought of since I was just shopping the stash.  Next time there might have to be some fabric acquisition.  Wink

The package from AIMR arrived, and I was bowled over by what she sent.  Not only were there squares, but some fabric made it in the package, too.  Thank you!
