SAY CHEESE CAKE FACTORY!!
A rather large blind date! On Sunday night I met up with Natalea and Jenny, and Sue as well as sue and Jenny's friend claudine and my daughter Jen at the Cheesecake factory~ most of us had never met before.. we know each other from Flickr and blogging. with the exception of Jenny used to work with Sue and claudine. We had the best time! 4 and a half hours of chit chatting, story telling, a few good jokes, and a lot of laughter! We had an interesting enough waiter, who Jenny thought looked like Nick lashay (dont have a clue as to how to spell his name) we entertained or possible annoyed the waiter.. ehh.. who cares which.. we were there for our own enjoyment!
The girls were awesome. how fun to met up with others who understand the urge to run to buy a new piece of scrapbook paper, or some new ribbon.. or to take a picture of some silly thing and to post it. They are kindred spirits, creators of art and whimsy! You cant beat spending time with people who really get it!! I do have a couple friends not on line who do understand.. (Brenda.. thats you!) but mostly people think I'm nuts.. well I probably am.. but at least I know there are others who are just as nuts!! So much fun girls! just cant wait to have a chance to do it again! Makes me wish i could go to silver bella! here are a few picks of us! arent they all adorable?
I had hoped to work on my halloween dolls on labor day, but ended up at the lake again.. (sunday and monday!) we had such a good time..Sunday I went to the beach with my beach buddies, sandy adn becky and their kids! Then on Labor day My family and another couple spent the afternoon and evening picnicing at our new spot down the road. I may have been pushing my luck a bit, because I knew I was coming down with something.. bad cold, and sore throat... but I spent a good deal of time in the lake.. .. now I really feel pretty ill.. There was the most gorgeous cat at the lake last night.. I would have loved to bring him home. But besides the fact that I just cant, I thought, well, geez, if I lived in this beautiful place, I would not be happy if someone took me away from it!!!
