Monday Musings - August 3, 2015

Sunrise August 2, 2015
Aboard the Carnival Conquest in Port Everglades, Florida
1. It is the first Monday in August--I bet that almost slipped in unnoticed.

2. Wow, what a change. Yesterday I woke up on a cruise ship in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida and today I am back in my everyday life heading off to work. Ugh! 

3. If vacations didn't end, I wouldn't appreciate them so much.

My Towel Dog Made on the cruise
4. Chris was so relaxed during our cruise that I had to nudge her a couple of times to make sure she was still alive.

5. No good vacation goes unpunished! My garage door opener suffered a catastrophic failure while I was away. Ugh!

6. With the normalization of relations between the U.S. and Cuba, it is time to end the economic embargo. I was amazed, but 72 percent of Americans support ending the embargo.

Swimming with the Fish
Grand Turk
7. I am going to miss the towel animals on my bed every night. Wait, I took a course on the ship about making towel animals!

8. Swimming with the fishes took on a new meaning last week.

9. My heart goes out the parents of the 14-year old sailors lost at sea during a fishing trip off the coast of South Florida. The Coast Guard suspended the search, but they haven to lost hope.
