Now this is more like it...Spring has arrived!

On Wed. and Friday, the Crop Crew usually gathers at Ruban Rouge for fellowship and fun. Oh, and we get a bit of scrapping done too from time to time. On Fridays, the crop includes supper but when we go on Wed., it is not an organized crop so we head out to lunch. I am a relative newcomber to the Wed. group which is composed of those of the Friday group that are retired or, in Jean's case, when she is not teaching. And thanks gals for including me in the extension. The Marathon Grill on Nebraska is the usual lunch spot for Wed. with all the freshly prepared tasty food.

Yesterday, poor Jackie was down with that horrible sinus bug that is going around and Katherine had a prior commitment so it was Diane and I. While we missed you, Jackie and Katherine, it was nice to spend some one on one time with Diane. And we did toast to you both at lunch. Diane made great progress with her butterfly album and I got about 3/4 of 3 different layouts done.

I did my bit towards helping out the economy. Michele was unloading box after box of new stuff and Diane and I were plucking it as fast as she could unload it...lots of Timmy stuff, some cool embossed cardstock papers, lovely new ribbons, glittery spring letter stickers, and Un-du ( I have been hoarding my last few drops as I was having trouble finding it locally). And, there are more orders of goodies due in next week.

Diane and I were going to go to lunch at the little Italian place near RR but the day was so lovely that we decided on Jack Willie's Tiki Bar instead. The sun was out, the surf was up and the beer battered shrimp and the fried grouper nuggets just what the doctor ordered. Thanks for a fun day Diane and see you all next WED. Get better Jackie!

Goodness but I would have loved to have been there with you yesterday. Sitting outside by the water for lunch is one of those "this is the life" kind of times for me. Being with you makes it even better! Can't wait to see what you do with all the new stuff. Thanks for doing your part to help the economy.
