A most delicious weekend!
It all started with the all day crop at Ruban Rouge where I completed 5, count 'em, 5 layouts. Anyone who knows me at all, knows this is a rarity for me. And here is one of them...our own dear sweet KIWI, Clare and her bff, Minnie! I hung out with my scrap pals, had fun with the owner, Lisa, and chatted with tons of people (one of whom recognized my siggy from ACOT...how much fun is that?).
Moving along to Sat. when E and I hit the stores full speed ahead. We got ribbons, and bows and a gift for a couple we know plus some other goodies which we did not need but just had to have. Then, after watching football (E) and sappy Christmas movies(me), we had our first fire in the fire pit on the lower lawn. We toasted the season with our holiday wine glasses and a nice Merlot from our wine stash.
And then today, Sunday...we made a Sam's Club run for paper ware for the party and found a few more fun gifts for pals. We walked through the craft fair here in town and went to Crabby Bills Tiki Bar for lunch. We ran into a friend of E's and I met his wife...nice people! Not sure what is in store for the rest of the day but so far so good.
The only sad note is dear Clare is heading back to NZ today. I know she misses her son and her friends there but we have all grown so fond of her, we all want to keep her with us forever and ever. She and I have already started thinking about her next state side visit...how does a group get together in San Francisco sound with at least 2 or 3 days touring Napa Valley? Who is in?
Hope your weekend has been wonderous and happy holidays!
