For one thing, it's the middle of April and we haven't seen the sun in Iowa for months. I was SO HAPPY TO BE IN A WARM, SUNNY PLACE. And I hadn't seen my friend Donna for a really long time -- so we had a lot of catching up to do.
Maybe it's just the fact that -- the older I get -- the more grateful I am for a SIMPLE GOOD DAY.
And, when Anita welcomed us to their meeting that morning, I felt so happy, and important -- and lucky to be in that place at that moment in time. Women who sew ARE THE FINEST PEOPLE. I AM TELLING YOU..!! I was soo happy I'd made this spontaneous trip to Maryland....to the Bayside Quilters/Mary Fons event...
|And those women thought of EVERY LAST DETAIL. THIS is a photo of the fresh flowers -- in the Firestation bathroom!!|
|DAFFODILS..!!! MY FAVORITE FLOWER. And they were in full bloom on this day. I cannot tell you how happy daffodils make me. Isn't that a spectacular color?? They have always thrilled me.|
|Easton, Maryland is the kind of town that should have it's own calendar...|
|It's one of those towns families flock to in the summer....and they rent a place for a week or a month....and they return year after year...|
|Of course, it sits right on the water.|
|So, finding a restaurant for lunch with a water view became our mission.|
|We'll take that little table over in the corner...|
|The one with the VIEW...|
|Yep. Another wonderful meal...on the Eastern Shore...|
|And they're famous for something called Smith Island Cake. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??|
