Calendar Girls Meeting

Thank you for all of the nice comments on Ruby Red Wine! I'm flattered!
I've worked 2 days this week. The weather hasn't been the sort of summer weather we've become accustomed to up here. As my friend Jackie called "purgatory summer", which seems pretty appropriate. It's been cool, & cloudy. It looks like it's threatening to rain, but never quite follows through on the threat. I really wish it would rain. That yellow on my deck is pollen off of the trees. We could use a good cleansing rain.
The Lupin on the hillside seem quite happy with the weather. They were everywhere up by my friend Mary's house. We had our Calendar Girls meeting there today.
This is the 2nd of 2 group quilts we started several years ago. Both were from photographs that I took & blew up on to freezer paper for a pattern. The first was Nasturtiums, which we got a blue ribbon at the State Fair with last year. Betty Bivens finished this second quilt after 6 people did the applique'. It is a scene at the State Fair.
Yesterday in my email at work, we got a note talking about the benefits of laughter in healing. It said we should try to get at least 15 minutes a day of good healthy laughter to reap the benefits. They encouraged us to try & help out patients & our coworkers find things to laugh about. Not just smiles but good deep belly laughs (though that could be a bit rough on the patient who just had their gall bladder out).
At Calendar Girls we got a good week's worth of laughter in today.

So?? What did it say??

mindy said... shouldn't have deleted it Deb! I just didn't have any great witty comments to add about being the "butt of a joke" kind of thing....and I was sooo thankful it wasn't a picture of my biggest ASSets! (see...I'm much more witty with a little sleep)

Mary, bless her heart, has the skinny butt! Dare I say, "I wish it was mine?"

Women have such fun!
