Kickin' off the Holiday Season

As always, the Christmas season does NOT begin for me until I see Santa arrive in Herald Square. That said, I have to admit I REALLY enjoyed hearing "Winter Wonderland" being played on steel drums with a Caribbean beat while in stores on St. Martin (plus, it was 90 degrees and humid).

mustangsally78 needs to see this.


I'd been to Nassau before, so we just went ashore, took some pictures, and came back to look around the ship.

Ships at the dock (there were a BUTTLOAD of cruise ships there this time):

Me, with Atlantis in the background:



Tour of the ship next.


Instead of doing Black Friday shopping we just hung around the house today, then went and bought a lot of plants for the tiki bar renovations in the back yard. (Odd, "Tiki" is not in the dictionary here, apparently.)

Kitteh sweater
The only problem is that my Kitteh Sweater (yes, I bought one) is RED.

Of course it's 71 degrees here so I may not wear it until January!

Re: Kitteh sweater
Dang! No Santa hats for them!

Yeah, I just got back from the wilds of Florida - it was hotter than the surface of Venus there...

Those ships really are like floating cities. I've got to go on a cruise one day and see what it's like.

Yes, they are -- or at least, a floating hotel (with attached mall). I enjoy them, I think mostly because I sleep so well on board!

Lots of plants! We got hibicus and flowering "bamboo" and gardenias, and birds of paradise -- I can't wait to see 'em blooming!

its always funny to hear people buying plants at the time of year when all mine have been moved in or are dead

We'll be in the 70's all week, with lows in the 50's. Perfect weather for a change!
