Leavin' on a Jet Plane

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go
I'm standing here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breaking, it's early morn
The taxi's waiting, he's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could die...
Kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me,
Hold me like you'll never let me go.
'Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again....
-John Denver

Took Miss Shilo to the airport in Portland on Saturday for her first ever flight. She was headed to Cody, Wyoming to see her friends and big sister, Brittany. She was very nervous and afraid that she might get "carsick(?)seasick(?)airsick(?)-what is it?". We gave her some dramamene, which made her kind of sleepy, so she wasn't quite so worried. She slept for the first 45 minutes of the 2 hour flight. Wasn't so bad after all. So far she is having a great time.

Riff and I did some shopping for house stuff after we dropped her off, then went into downtown Portland for dinner at the Daily Grille. We sat at a sidewalk table and had a wonderful dinner topped off with a slice of key lime pie. MMMM......

Sunday we cracked down on our house projects. Kitchen cabinet drawers and doors are back on, new light fixtures are up in the kitchen and on the back porch. Guest room floor is sanded and the trim is painted. We moved the dining room clock and hung a piece of art in its place and finally put up a pair of sconces that we had received for Christmas. So we're a little slow, so what........

May you be blessed with short flights and finished projects...
