Today started off on a very sad note. Our black and white cat, Sassi, who was well over 13 years of age, passed away. I found her stretched out but looking very peaceful in the laundry when I went to put some washing in the machine. We have had a burial for her. Rest in peace, Sassi.
Well, on to happier news. I cannot begin to explain how wonderful this week end was. There are 4 of us that get together once a month. We have been meeting for about 13 years and have been going to Hermanus for about 12 years, the first 2 years happened annually but now we go bi-annually. Lauren Moser, Yvonne Ivey, Sue Jones and I leave all our woes from home behind us and set of on a Friday morning and we now return home on a Monday evening - shear bliss. We are very privileged to stay in Yvonne's parents flat. We all have the freedom to bring and doing whatever we feel like. I am terrible as I always take soooooo much stamping goods with, use very little of it but feel like I am in heaven!
We spend time eating at home and frequenting different eateries, talking and discussing all sorts of topics, paging through stamping magazines, shopping (there is a scrapbooking shop), occasional walks and searching for whales, laughing and managing to fit some stamping time in too.
Below is a photo of Yvonne hard at work on some scrapbook pages and Lauren shading images (her favourite pass time). Unfortunately Sue had already left when I remembered my camera so there is no action shot of her.
These week ends are memorable occasions, wonderful food for the soul and we come home refreshed and ready to resume our daily duties with the hope that in six months time we will be doing it again.
Have a great Saturday.
