My husband has finally been hired on by the company he has been contracted to for the last three years. This has been a huge answer to prayer for us. We have been waiting since April to find out if they would hire him. We knew that all his employees were moving across but we weren’t sure about whether he himself would have a job. He does! And, once again, the Lord has taken care of us exceedingly abundantly above what we requested.
His present employer has asked him to use up all his vacation time before he moves across AND they wanted him to take it in a lump, so……it didn’t take us long to decide what we wanted to do with that lump of time! We both love going on cruises! However, when our girls started college and we were looking at two out-of-state tuition payments, we put all vacationing on hiatus.
We didn’t know if we could find any ships that still had any rooms available but WE DID! We booked the very last room on the GRAND PRINCESS setting sail Friday! However, we are sitting on pins and needles waiting to see if Princess can find us any flights from Colorado to Quebec City, Canada. Last minute plans can be fun IF they work out. And, this girl is really hoping these last minute plans will work out!
Day 1 – Quebec City, Canada
Day 2 – At Sea
Day 3 – Charlottetown, Canada
Day 4 – Sydney, Nova Scotia
Day 5 – Halifax, Nova Scotia
Day 6 – St John, New Brunswick
Day 7 – Bar Harbor, Maine
Day 8 – Boston, Massachusetts
Day 9 – Newport, Rhode Island
Day 10 – New York City
Have any of you been to any of these places? More importantly, any cool knitting shops in any of these places? I know that Charlottetown is the setting of one of my favorite books, Anne of Green Gables. I think I will most definitely be taking that carriage ride past the Lake of Shining Waters! Too bad the Cherry Blossoms won’t be blooming. This is a fall foliage cruise.
It starts on October 1st, the very day I will be touring the Anne of Green Gables Homestead!
So, hopefully, tomorrow I will get a flight schedule and on Friday I will be flying out bright and early to make it onto the Grand Princess before she sails out to sea!
