Vote Now..."California Happy Cow"


Only 11 days left to vote for the next "California Happy Cow" at http://www.realcaliforniamilk.com/auditions/index.html

I don't want to tell you "who" to vote for BUT "Kirsten" looks awfully cold and would love the warm temperatures in California.  "Kirsten" is from Canada!

Vote now!

Thanks,

Elaine

It rained in California?


Rain finally arrived in California...much needed!

It even rained enough to be measured...2 1/2 inches! And we might even get more this week! Good news...


Gifts from Rosa


Gifts from Rosa... Fabulous fat quarters of "Anne of Green Gables" fabric. They were packaged as a book...and the "pages" inside were the fat quarters!

Aren't these wonderful? I thinking of making a table runner with them, a dual way to remember our excursion to Prince Edward Island and Rosa! Those chenille strips will be used in a wall hanging I'm planning to make for my grandchildren...they will be perfect!

Thanks again Rosa for the great gifts and especially for your friendship...I am so blessed.

Memories...the corners of my mind!

Now that the routine has come back into my daily life,  I sometimes have to pinch myself to believe that we actually went on such an amazing vacation ... our cruise to New England and Canada!

So here are some reminders that I keep close in my "Bank of Memories"...

Yes, we were in Canada...Jim's "Mug Shot"

And I did get to Saint John, New Brunswick to meet my dear friend, Rosa.
What a wonderful time we had on "Rosa Wednesday"!*

It was the "Best of Times"

* Please check out m previous post on "Rosa Wednesday" for details if you missed it!
