So hard to believe that just a week ago my vacation was just beginning and now it's almost time to go back to work.  It seemed such a short time to be off.

I didn't do much of anything today.  Besides church, I just laid around the house and napped.  Won't be able to do that after today.  I have a long busy next three weeks in front of me.

Today I thought I would take pictures of the things I told you I would show you and end up the vacation with that.

This is the laser cut oak cross that I got at the State Fair.  The bottom of it shows the Nativity, then there is the Star of Bethlehem, the Crucifixion, the angels by the open tomb, and the top is Christ's ascension into heaven.  It's beautiful.

I almost didn't get this, but couldn't resist when I was at the Christmas Shop in Lancaster.  Too cute!

And here is my ornament for this year.  It is carved out of olive wood from Bethlehem.  You can't see it, but the word "Bethlehem" is painted on the bottom.

This isn't a very good picture, but these are the earrings I bought at Hershey Farm.  The crescent moons have little stars carved in them.

Finally, this is the cookbook I bought yesterday at Barnes and Noble.  Next weekend I will start making recipes out of it.  If they turn out, I'll share some with you.

So back to work tomorrow.  In some ways I'm glad to go back, but in others I'm sad.  Don't miss the nasty people at all!  But miss my friends.  Stay tuned for tomorrow's episode in my trip through life.
