I just took it at a moderate pace. Got there safe and sound. Only Delores didn't venture out in it, so it was just 4 of us. We had such a fun time. Of course we had to play games. Joan is the best at hosting a party! One of Nancy's favorite games is the word search we do. Ok, I'm lieing. Nancy hates the word search lol. (I like it !). And I won a prize for finishing first. Actually, I think I'm the only one that completed it lol. It was a tough one. I got some wonderful candles. My house is going to smell soooo good this winter. Then Joan gave us another game to play. It was a bunch of questions on a paper. I'm telling you they were tough. I guessed at just about all of them. I think I got 4 out of 15! They were all a little history of Christmas questions. That was fun too.
Joan made some wonderful home made pizza for lunch. I LOVE it. She knows that :). It was great. But it was a surprise. I didn't know we were having it. I brought my yogurt that I grabbed on the way out the door. (I left that for her to eat later lol). There were also sweets to pick on and some vegetables and dip. Everything was delicious. Louise brought us all some home made earth bread and she aslo makes caramel popcorn. Mmmmm.
We didn't do our normal dyeing today. But Joan did have something planned. Told you she's the best! She had 4 pieces of camel wool soaking, and she put 4 different dyes near the pot. We were to make up our own formula. Whether it be just a straight one dye, or a combination, etc. So we all started with the same color and when we were done, we ended up with 4 beautiful pieces of wool. Was very interesting to see what each person chose to do. We also cut our piece into 4 pieces, and gave a piece to each other. So now we have a piece of all of them.
Before we were ready to leave, I asked Joan's husband Bob to take a picture of us. I can't thank him enough for the shots he got. When I got home and looked at them, I howled lol. We are one silly group!!! Ok, the camera wasn't set on flash, so I had to step out of the picture for a minute. Here they are joking around as usual. Nancy on the left, Poor Louise in the middle wondering what the heck have I gotten myself in to, and Joan on the right. Not sure what song they were singing LOL.
Ok, now I step back into the picture...... We get serious for a moment... and then.......
The silliness starts again. Don't you just love the bunny ears I have????
It was a great day, and was spent with great friends. So glad I decided to go and not stay home. Thank you Joan for your hospitality. You are such a giving soul. Bless you! And PLEASE thank Bob for taking these great pictures lol. Love them! You all just crack me up!!
