and Five on Friday.
I love participating in these memes. I hope you will check them out and perhaps join in, as well.
1. Why do springtime and pollen go together? It really makes enjoying this special season a royal pain. But, a price must be paid for everything or so they say. Besides, the pollen will soon go away but the joy that is Spring will linger awhile yet.
2. I am excited about being invited as guest speaker at a senior luncheon next Thursday. They want to hear about my writing (and getting it published) a book at this ripe old age. I say, if you have an itch, scratch it. I had an itch to write. Look what happened.
3. I had a lovely time at lunch today. I went to the Stillwater House Tea Room, all by my little lonesome!! The two charming ladies at the next table (whom I had never met) and I had such a lively conversation going. It was loads of fun.
And, so was the food served...
fruit, wafers, cheeses and a delicious scone for a starter
followed by dainty little sandwiches (cucumber, pimento and chicken salad)
and little cakes for dessert. Of course, there was plenty of mixed berry green tea.
I must go back soon... and take a few of my girlfriends.
It's so old, it is all to pieces so I must handle it with care.
The high school band I was in, took a trip from Alabama to New York on the train so that we could march in the American Legion Parade in Philadelphia. We did D. C., Philadelphia and New York.
What an exciting trip for this little ole country girl.
5. I guess I have officially closed the door on a hobby that I have enjoyed for years - quilting. With passage of time come many changes. It was just time to say goodbye to all the lovely fabric and patterns and creativity that I have enjoyed and move on to something else.
