My holiday in the U.S. was a month long, but spent in four states. Below are a few highlights from my whirlwind holiday:
San Antonio, TX
Sunny and warm (20s C/80s F) and Christmas with my parents. I got to see old friends from my home church, high school, and the Fun Day Group.
A cross-country drive took us to spend second Christmas with my brother and his family and I met my youngest niece and nephew.
Then my parents and I spent a couple of days in the serenity of the Old House.
Another cross-country drive took me back to Texas, where I watched lots of Star Trek and lost three games of Scrabble to Kelly.
Ft Worth, TX
Then a couple of days spent with Megan, where her young neighbours had fun playing with my hair.
Oklahoma City, OK
I took the train north to Oklahoma, where I hung out with Felicity and Thomas, and Felicity sewed a lining onto the hat I crocheted at Kelly’s.
Los Angeles, CA
A jet plane took me to California, where I spent my last few days in the States with Sarah and David and my buddy little Isaac.
As you can see, it was busy but very fun trip. I stocked up on lots of sunlight, Mexican food, and root beer, and had a very good time catching up with friends and family.
