Our adventure together went into a holding pattern from the beginning of November into early December. Scott stayed in Colorado to help his dad in Estes Park, while I flew home to spend time with my mom. We stayed busy, but we both agreed that five weeks is way too long to spend apart.
While not cooking and hanging with his dad, Scott was able to take some hikes, and he even did some early season skiing! Here are some highlights from his month in Rocky Mountain National Park without me.
I, on the other hand, traveled to the East Coast. It was the first time I had ever been in an airport on Halloween. Not only did Southwest Airline decorate the terminal, but they provided a free cocktail once on board. Happy Halloween!
Before arriving in New Jersey, I took a slight detour to Fort Lauderdale, FL, to visit with my sister and her family. The sunshine was quite inviting, and it was great to see my Florida Family! From beach to bar, to visiting with her grand puppy, Teddy, and his parents, it was fun to spend time with Dean, Rose, Cody, Paige, Alex, and Teddy.

One of my favorite sounds:
On 11/6/18, I flew to New Jersey to spend time with family and friends. I have to say that there were many that I didn’t get to see. Hopefully, I will do better the next time I am in Jersey.
My visit began with impromptu visits with friends.
Next, came the Thanksgiving weekend activities.
Then, we spent an afternoon with my grand nephew! He is one smart little boy.
Of course, there was the annual Thanksgiving weekend JETS football game at MetLife Stadium. Win or lose, we always have a fun time.
It was great to see my friend, Liz, and celebrate her birthday actually ON HER BIRTHDAY!
Celebrating Danielle’s “Golden” Birthday:
Next, came a “Toys For Tots” Speeder Trip in Pennsylvania with my brother-in-law, Gary.
I lost a number of “visiting” days due to the unexpected need for some dental work. What a lovely picture! I can’t believe that I am sharing this photo!
Having survived that surprise episode, it was a privilege to join my mom at her Woman’s Club Annual Performing Arts Event.
I hope you enjoy a little bit of Christmas cheer!
Finally, my last hurrah…a day trip to NYC with dear friends!!
Time to rejoin my husband on the West Coast. We won’t be living in our RV until the end of January, but our journey will continue in the state of Washington.
