I know I Said…

I would post about this and tell about that, sadly I can’t remember yesterday all that clearly, so…

I did arrive home a week ago from San Diego. Just a few photos from the trip.

Terri, me and Cindy.

Trying to decide.

Should we swim? Should we surf?

Which way should we go???

Thankfully we had Brian, Terri’s brother sharing his home as well as the highlights of San Diego with us.

Oh yes, he also shared his sail boat with us. 

I had no idea how fun sailing was, I thought boats needed tow ropes, wake boards, skis, inter tubes, and masses of teenagers to be fun???

san diego 5 059We joined up with Elizabeth in San Diego.

san diego 5 167 I’m pretty sure she will never be the same, after being corrupted by all sorts of delightful taste treats…

Terri, was teaching these houses and the glass box in one of her classes.

It was great fun, meeting up again with Julie Haymaker Thompson.

I “heart” her work….

These next 3 pictures are my favorite from the whole trip.

We were set up at the Mermaid’s Flea Mkt and Dottie came out for a little visit. 

She seems to find Cindy’s lady a clever display…

She even takes a second look.

Then upon closer inspection??? san diego 2 097 She is one of my favorite people.

Not afraid to laugh out loud, she makes me laugh out loud!

We had so much fun with her.

We also loved the ladies at The Urban Barn.  We were treated to a delightful morning of visiting, shopping and a sweet little brunch.

san diego 5 004 A mere 3600 miles and 2 weeks away from home.

I’m pretty sure I have never had a better time, or have been so glad to be home! 

I missed my boys and they missed me! 

Time to get everyone busy around here, now that summer has evidently come to the Northwest while I was away.

The fact that I have a habit of doing way too many things, is not a new issue… but did I mention Portland Expo was just a couple of days after I got home???  It was fun, but a very hot blur…

I ran into these girls there.

Julie, Sue and Lisa (who does not have an issue with her front tooth, it is a shadow.)

Someday I will figure out how to edit…
