Just wanted to stop in a say hello to everyone! Of course I haven't taken any pictures and up loading them my prove to be a challenge anyway. I have been here on the ship for about a week and am doing ok. I seem to have caught what we call the crud. Everyone gets it at least once.. I just wish that it would go away.. LOL.

The guys in the shop are great. They are all personable and seem to all get along. There are a couple of bump on a log type guys but they don't seem to affect the others. The bump on a logs are pretty senior so if they haven't figured out how to deal with things there is nothing that I can do to help them.

If you haven't noticed with the help of jen I put a counter until I am home on my blog. Of course its not completely accurate but I cant really make it that way either. I just left a guess as to when we may be home.. things are always subject to change.

I brought crossstitch kits out here with me but have yet to sit down and break one out. I guess I am being a bit lazy. I think about them all the time but never have one with me when I have the time or motivation to do it. My plan today is to go back down to my rack and get a couple of the little ones and see how far that I can get. I want to try to keep doing some of my crafts otherwise I think I will feel overwhelmed when I get home.

Its actually funny Keith talks to me about setting up a quilt frame at his house so that I can sew when I am at his house. Things there are great he and I email everyday and he sent me a voice message on the computer today.

Well I am going to get going. I have a couple more things that I need to get done and then I am going to head to chow and settle in for the night. Take care everyone!!

It was so good to hear from you we've all missed you so much and I know you are in all of our thoughts each day. I hope you get rid of the crud soon and can be back to normal. Things sound like they are going well which is good. Soon you'll be all settled in and then out will come the projects that you want to work on. I hope there are other girls there that you can craft with. If there is anything that you need or anything that you'd like please let me know and I'll get it right out to you. Stay safe and if I haven't said it before I'm saying it now THANK YOU for doing what you do to keep all of us safe. Lots of love.

Cindy said what I stopped by to say...Thank you, Heather, for keeping us all safe, and for fighting for our freedom. Not many can do what you do, and we appreciate you. Tell your shipmates thank you for me as well.

I hope you are feeling better soon. Please take care. We all miss you.
