Lots of packing which I hate. One more needle to get. Still waiting for our visas, sure hope they come soon. It is so hard to know what to take and what to leave behind. I've packed my suitcase, then changed my mind and repacked. Giving lots of clothes to the Salvation Army because I know I won't want the stuff when I get home. Lots of rain in Scotland and Ireland and I can't find an all weather coat with a zipped in liner and hood. Hope to find one over there. Just a couple more weeks before we leave. I guess I will turn this blog into my travel blog or maybe I will use the card blog. We shall see when the time comes. Hope every one has a very Merry Christmas.

Well we are into December already. This year has flown by. January 2nd 2013 my hubby and I are leaving for 18 months on a church mission to Scotland/Ireland. It is something we have wanted to do for along time. We have been in the planning stages since April. Doctors, dentists, house to rent out, belongings to pack up, visas to apply for, driver's license, health many things to arrange for. I am hoping once we get settled I will again start posting about our assignments and pictures of the scenery. We are not sure what country we will be in first. We will be moving around some to different congregations between Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Scotland and Northern Ireland they use Pounds and southern Ireland they use Euros. I've never been to Ireland so it will be a great opportunity to see the countryside. I am taking basic art supplies with me. I will try to do an art journal of my experiences. Thanks to everyone who follows me. Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
