Being Northern Again

 I had a good flight to Syracuse;  it was good flying for knitting and reading!
 The scenery was brilliant.  Full of clouds and sunshine.
My sister and her daughter had time off from work so we could play!  We made bracelets from soda bottle plastic and painted them with fingernail polish.
