Week in review and a Saturday Brunch

This has been a fairly quiet week with less drama and friction than the previous weeks. Things seem to be calming down a bit. Wednesday nite was our monthly Stampin Up class at Jan's. As usual we had a ton to catch up on and it took us a bit to get going but we managed to finish our two cards and little treat box despite all of our talking.

I was able to stay home yesterday and actually accomplished more than usual. Cleaned, laundry and making Valentine Treat bags for family and staff. Yeah me.

Today was brunch at Mystic Paper. What a fun morning this was. Jennifer made Quiche and it was simply wonderful. Ellen did the muffins and again yummy. Kim J has been so sick with pneumonia plus the loss of her beloved Maverick, but she was there too. It was so fun seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Kim H even beat Colleen and I there. Hey what is wrong with that picture as usually Colleen is the first to arrive:)
We were served wonderful teas and we got to choose the tea cup we liked and it was a gift to us. How fun and special was that??? Kim H had a very unusual tea from Africa and it was yummy. I had a blackberry and it was also very good.

This was a really fun morning plus the added bonus of the new Graphics 45 and Jenni Bowlin being in the store. What more could we all ask for.
Thanks Kim J, Jennifer and Ellen for a wonderful brunch, good food and great conversations
