I arrived safe and sound in Syracuse, N.Y at the dinner hour tonight. My drive and border crossing were trouble free. Boy, those customs officers are getting a little nosy, or you feel like you're getting the 9th degree! This particular one wanted to know who I knew in Jacksonville, how I knew Claire, and what did I do for a living. It seems these days its more than where you going, how long are you going to be there, and do you have anything to declare.
I was a good girl, and shortly after settling in I went for a good 45 minute brisk walk. Its nice to stretch the legs after a couple of hours in the car.
Only a few short hours in the U.S., and I'm already shopping! I went to a nearby Michael's and picked up these great spools of ribbon for $1! I also got some flower head pins. Then I wandered around The Christmas Tree Store for those of you not familiar with this store... its essentially a crap shop. I got these two cute little bags! I was able to find a red one with my initial on it, and I got a blue one without an initial. Did you notice whose come along for this latest adventure????
Well I'm tired and I have to get up at "freakin' early o'clock" to get to the airport. I'll be giving Claire a huge hug by lunchtime tomorrow!!!!
