On vacation

My best friend Brea came into town yesterday, so I have not been stitching. I am on vacation. I have had a really lovely two days. Yesterday, after I picked them up from the airport, we went to Chesapeake Beach for lunch, and then to Breezy Point beach. That is where this photo was taken. I happen to think it is a really cute photo of me. Perhaps it's the sand, perhaps it's that, as a Scorpio, the presence of water improves my mood and thus I look my naturally prettiest, or else I am actually becoming photogenic as I age, but I take really good pictures at the beach. Anyway, so you at least have some reference of how I look right now.
Anyway, we went to the beach and drove around Washington. I used to be more able to drive downtown. I hate to sound peevishly juvenile, but it really cheeses me that, as part of the increased security measures after 9/11, it is really difficult to drive around down there. And then add in the Saturday night partying and it was bad to get around.
Today we went to church at the National Cathedral. It was lovely. My pictures don't do it justice. It was really lovely. They had beautiful needlepoint kneelers in the pews. There were some opportunities for S.E.X, but I wasn't really impressed with the qualities of the kits and I wasn't paying $21.95 for a kit I wasn't that impressed with.
And then we went to the Holocaust museum. That makes me so angry and it breaks my heart to see the people who were killed. Who knows what contribution they or their children could have made to the world if they hadn't been killed. If the Holocaust hadn't happened, maybe we would have a cure for cancer, or figured out how to stop global warming. So much potential destroyed by hate.

Hi Rachel! I just wanted to let you know that I read your blog a couple of times a week. I really enjoy it a lot!

Anyway, just thought I'd pop in and say hi to let you know I am often found loitering here. LOL!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
