So I made tuna sandwiches, we sat out on the patio on my paint covered table; and caught up with our lives. She's a school principal so she and DH had lots of school stuff to chat about. And Lisa loved all the house renovations and looking at my art. It feels so good to have it all appreciated and enjoyed.
Thanks for stopping by Lisa...I love spending time with you! See you "on line". Actually we are going to plan to meet up in Berkeley sometime real soon too! Later that same day, my friend Sam, who we spend time with in Glide, Oregon on July 4th every year now for a very long time and have been friends with since the late 1970's was also going to be coming through our town on this day, but later in the afternoon. So I had a little hammock time with my book between visits.
Sam came with her friend Debbie, as they are on their way to Debbie's niece's' wedding in So. CA.
We took them to see the wild life in our part of the country.
First stop Ostriches!
And then the sunflowers! This one had a bee visiting it!
Sam was in heaven taking photos of all the sunflowers in the field.
She also liked the cows across the road. And they were clamoring to see her as well!
Who were equally curious to meet Sam and Debbie.
They know us of course already!
We stopped to ride the horses at the New Nut Tree park!
walked a few feet to Fenton's
for ice cream for dessert!
It was a very sweet evening.
and were so kind to look at EVERYTHING! I probably
overloaded and overwhelmed them making them look at it all.
But they were so effusive with compliments and awe
I couldn't stop myself.
I know, shame on me! So I sent them each home with a little art journal quilt they
had said they liked "best". The next morning we had to say our goodbyes...
