And there were showers of blessings

Blessings and more blessings.

The Mother of the groom Tina ( and the hostess ) the bride to be Kelcie and Carol her mother  and Lydia ( sister of the groom )


and into details:


cookies in the shape of wedding dresses

                                        Cucumber and Shrimp  delights

 Fresh strawberries

                    Tarts and more tarts
Muffins and shortbread














Many gifts for the bride, and all of them very thoughtful. BUT this one is very creative.  Gift cards for coffee shops, diners, etc. that are within walking distance of their new home !  




And gifts for the guests    ....pick your favorite tea cup..or even two !


                     and if that isn't enough, a treat bag to take home. 
                   A toast to the Bride and our wonderful hostess.
Don't tell anyone, but I came  home with  more than I brought...two tea cups, a set of Chinese tea pot and cups ( prize ) Treat bag with cookies, tea pods and a  package of stationery !  oh, and 4 lemon tarts ( my favorite )

Come on over  for tea any time.  





I love poka dots

            living in Seattle you can always use another raincoat !
                     especially a cute poka dot raincoat !
 My wonderful friend Bonnie, pulled this darling raincoat out of her closet and said
                " you like poka dots, I want you to have this "  so...
                       1. It fit perfectly
                                 2. I love poka dots
                                      3. At the risk of hurting her feelings 
                                   I said thank you so much
The very next day I threw that beauty over my sweats and headed out the door to run an errand.  No one knew what was underneath that classy coat and I was feeling so spunky, I decided the next stop would be the  DQ.  
 I was hungry since  all I had for lunch was 1/2 a piece of salmon. very small. 
I have a new favorite 
 The turtle blizzard.    I came without any reading material so I just people watched.   Three young girls came and bought one, just one dilly bar.   A very grown up man ordered a small cone. 
 My blizzard was much more interesting.  In fact, it was so interesting, I came back to the DQ again today. 
 This time I had some reading material with me.   Guideposts.  Always nice short and true stories.  Right on the cover was a familiar face - she was in the Hallmark movie Sally and I had just seen a night or two ago.  We both thought she had beautiful eyes. Turns out  she depends on God in her life. And she stars in Biggest Losers.   I have never seen that show, but if you have, do you know her name? 

  Should I tell you? 

 OK Alison Sweeney.
  So now we both know three things about that lady with  the beautiful eyes.

An evening out

            we have been there before, maybe you have too
                              they feature very good  Chinese dishes
                                       and a lovely artifical tree with apples 
                                                   
    It might have been because I had just raised my hanky to my nose that I noticed something hanging from our servers nose.            
Was I going to lose my appetite?  Perhaps it was a growth. Poor fellow.   I focused on those lovely prawns, pea pods and I was smiling again.

Sorry for the fuzzy photo. 
  There was plenty to bring home in those cute little boxes.  
    No fortune cookies.
      No growth
        Oh well.

Equal Time

I try not to have favorites, but when your name starts with K you have an advantage.
                  Oh, Kristin and Kathy both start with K.



                       And that is why I have no favorites. 
  Kathy did make a very nice herringbone patch for me

and everyone will be glad to know I can now hold a goblet.  
                             Yes, it is plastic, but it is full !
                 And that is the latest update  for this Kathy.  

there is a picture of kristin somewhere.... 
i just need a little more flexibility in the wrist and i know i could find it ...

They missed me

                                                      and i missed them
                                       thank you ladies from my BSF group.
                        Next week i should be driving myself.   
Today, Friday, is my first day to face K & K without "the pill". 
 But it means i can drive myself and maybe, say, go out to lunch, or at least for  a frosty  !
