I'm not sure which famous duo we resembled most, but my sweet friend Diann took me to lunch yesterday. We dined at Ruby Tuesday's, a first for me, and it was quite delicious. Salad bar and mini burgers with iced tea. Then we wheeled around the mall and went to Barnes and Noble, where she bought me this super book, Creative Embellishments by Sherrill Kahn. She was quite right when she said it seemed like just the book for me. I have already sent DH to the store for suggested supplies that, believe it or not, I didn't have.
Diann was at my mercy yesterday, because not only did I want to ride her around in our new car, but I also wanted her to see the house. Poor gal, she had to look at my jewelry, my vintage photos, my crazy stash of supplies and my work space. Hubby was working on his new video and she got a sneak preview of that, plus he played obscure records for her and showed her his collections of vinyl and such. By the time I took her back to her car, it was 6:30 pm and neither one of us even realized it. Even though she says she is a bit shy and I hadn't been out with a friend for lunch for probably over a year, we both did ok. We chatted and giggled and ate and drank coffee and read books and talked and... well, you get the picture. I had made her one of my little pillow dolls and she tucked it into her shirt and took her along for the fun. I also made sure she left with some little things to remember us by, DH gave her a book and I kept shoving crazy things like painted wooden fish and a little decorated gourd, into her hands. Yikes, I hope her new hubby, Jon, doesn't think we went overboard. She also made me the sweetest card from them wishing me many happy returns. Since this is such a lengthy post today, I won't post any pictures until later, but I did want to let everyone know what happened when the two of us got together. Later, folks!
