I'm Back :)

I've been absent in blogland for the past week.  I've spent a glorious week at Niagara Falls with my hubby ~ and no kids ~ and on purpose did not take a computer :)  We stayed in Ontario and did just about all that can be done there, and even walked over into the US and visited the American side of the falls too.

We saw them from below on the Maid of the Mist, and from the base of the falls at the Cave of the Winds.  (We even saw them from behind at the Journey Behind the Falls attraction. 

We saw them from all sides...

And went downstream and viewed the whirlpool and the beautiful water from the air on the Aerocar.

I think we took in all the scenery from every angle possible ~ don't worry, I won't make you look at all of our photos!  And to prove we had a great time, here we are wind blown and wet, and I didn't even care how I looked!  How's that for a good time :) 
So now I'm back, and after one more vacation day will be getting it back to the grind stone.  I did get a little knitting done on the trip, I'll show that later :)

The winner of my little summer reading give away is Nancy of Silly Stitching blog!  I'm sending you an email Nancy for your address, and will be getting your books out to you this week.  Thanks to everyone for all of the great book and author suggestions.  I do have a nice list to take when I go to the library and book shop now :)

Enjoy the day!

Congrats to your winner and I'm glad you had a lovely trip. We were there a couple of times (also on the Canadian side) and really enjoyed it.
