Everyone got up before me today. I got up after 9:00 and went to breakfast alone.  Larry, Derek and Erin were walking on Deck 7.  After breakfast I went and walked with them for the last 4 laps, making a total of 7 for them.  Then Erin went up top to read in the sun.  Larry, Derek and I went shopping.  Derek bought two tee shirts as they had a sale going.  Derek and Larry bought Rum Cake and Honey.  Then we went to the library to read until lunch.

Lunch was at the Great Outdoors on the back deck of Deck 12.  They had German food which we all enjoyed.  They also played German music and served German beer.  We figured they did this because there are so many German tourists on board.  After lunch Derek and I went to read in the library and Larry and Erin went to the top deck to read.  I went to the spa and had a seaweed wrap and massage which was wonderful, but expensive.  Of course, they tried to sell me more products to take home with me but I told them this was a one-time treat for me.  It really made me feel pampered and relaxed.  When I was done I went back to the room and fixed my hair.  She gave me a scalp massage while I was in the steambed with the seaweed wrap and my hair was a mess.  Then I took my book and went to the Bliss Lounge to meet everyone else for General Trivia.  They arrived just as I was getting our paper and pencil.  Believe it or not we won again, this time with 14 points out of 20.  After trivia, Erin and I blogged in the room and Derek and Larry went to get a German beer at the Great Outdoors.  They came back to the room and helped me with details for the blog for yesterday, then Larry and Erin went to deck 7 to watch the sunset, Derek went to his cabin to download pictures.  Tonight we will go to music trivia at 7:00, then to supper at 8:00 except Erin will eat at the buffet.  This evening after we eat, we have to redeem our activities tickets, pack, fill out paperwork for going ashore tomorrow etc.  So I am finishing today's blog early.   I’ll fill you in tomorrow night on what else might happen.  We will be staying at a hotel in South Beach tomorrow night.  The only thing for sure on our schedule for tomorrow is to watch the Buckeyes baseball game.

I am so glad you have taken the cruise. It sounds as though you are having a great time. I spent my morning doing some cooking and this afternoon I was lazy and just watched a little tv on my computer before I went to see Margie for Spiritual Direction. We met for two hours and she was great. I pretty much told her I felt like Northwest Ohio was really call me to come home and I really am homesick. Springbank is wonderful but one really needs to be committed 24 -7 to be on staff.

Tomorrow I cook for lunch for 10 of us - macaroni and cheese with stewed tomatoes, a vegetable marinate for salad with fruit and brownies for dessert. That will take me probably a full three hours to prepare. Then I am going to walk, pray and preview my resume and try to get that accomplished. All of this cooking is making it difficult for me to keep on track with the gardens and my own time. Trina and I are going to have a conversation and that is when I am going to let her know that I really don't see myself coming back to be here on staff. I think they need people who are willing and want to make this their LIFE and that is not me. I have more to give than just get sucked up into this place though it is an awesome place.

Well gotta run. Time wind down for the evening.
Have a good day tomoroow.
