Hearts and flowers and chocolate -
Even my split pea soup was made more festive for the day with its sour cream heart floating there on top!
While sitting in the restaurant with Siobhan, talking up a storm – I noticed a mother/daughter out for lunch. The daughter had presented her mother with the most gorgeous bouquet of ORANGE roses! Bright and cheery, and the mother was beaming.
Guild meeting last night with the Crossroads Quilt Guild was also quite the affair! When Angelia told me to not worry about dinner, that there would be food at the meeting, I had in my mind that there would be snacks – maybe some chips or pretzels, or some veggies and dip – that kind of thing. But NO! it was a full on pot-luck dinner! What a great way to spend time getting to know the ladies before the meeting “really” started.
And while we were milling around……I saw a quartet of men in red vests walk in and assemble……and I had to capture this on video. Can you feel the love?
((Pardon the lady who decided it was okay to walk between the recipient and the quartet with a big box instead of going BEHIND them…….obviously the shortest distance between two points was a straight line and she was going to take it and not wait for the song to be over –))
And that wasn’t all! Cookie decided that I needed a valentine bouquet too!
Holy Happy Yum!
Yes, I look sweaty -- it was hot in the room and I had just finished speaking. Hot flash anyone??
There is no way I need a dozen chocolate bars --- those will be cut up and distributed amongst the ladies in the next two day’s worth of classes!
Today it’s a crumbs workshop and I am excited about getting in there and helping these ladies make a complete mess. Tomorrow? Blue Ridge Beauty!
I think Valentine’s Day should last at least a week, don’t you?
