My sister-in-law (Gregg's sister) came to my rescue for my Today's Flowers entry as I didn't take any pictures of flowers this week.  She bought them while on a walk and took them back to her hotel room, using what looks like a soda bottle for the vase.  One of the many things I have enjoyed when visiting her home over the years, is that she always has the prettiest flowers on display.

Gigi is on an amazing journey and won't be home for a couple of months.  She stayed the night with us last Monday and the following day flew to Beijing China.  She is keeping in touch with the family via the internet and we are enjoying daily accounts and photographs, any of which she said I could share here.   

The first part of her journey she is spending with faculty and students from the university she teaches at, and will be visiting various places while also visiting other universities in China.  Her youngest son will be joining them soon.  I'm sorry to hear that she has a cold and it's already been an adventure going to the drug store to find the appropriate medication.  However, she has found how kind complete strangers can be, as there has always been someone who can speak English and only too willing to step in and translate for her.  

Happy Traveling Gigi and hope you get rid of that cold quickly.
