Lunch with friends started the week. Laishley Crab House in Punta Gorda was the venue.
The view was spectacular and the company was wonderful. Think stories and laughter. We needed this time with friends as we were still recovering from the cruise and Jack's knee episode. I was truly exhausted from all the drama and the stubbornness of he who shall not be named!
The food was very good. Oyster Po Boys for us. Sushi is a specialty but I am not there yet. Soon - maybe....
And, yes, that is a "bad girl" dessert - fried ice cream with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Oh my.
So that was the beginning of the week. I have been blog hopping a lot. So many wonderful ideas and clever bloggers. I have been experimenting with tea. No more diet sodas for me. Tough habit to break.
I saw this butter slab on another blog and found a reproduction at Joanne Hudson. The black and white appealed to me.
I reconfigured the beverage set up on top of the wine cupboard (something for everyone!).
I am pleased with the look and everything is in one place.
So, then we went to A Good Yarn. I was looking for a magnifying lamp for my needlepoint stand. That plus other "stuff" came home with me. I love the use of decorative stitching and beading that is very popular and "jumped" out of my comfort level and decided to try this design.
Vibrant colors and so many beading and stitch opportunities.
Glad to be feeling spunky again and looking forward to starting this design with Vickie at A Good Yarn.
I am working on my jacket as well. The second front is almost finished. Dermatitis is still a problem so I knit, I get an outbreak, I heal, I knit.....
And, roses on the kitchen counter always help. Have a wonderful weekend.
