Last night all the girls at work let our hair down for a few hours. The occasion was a belated wedding shower for a co-worker. We couldn't coordinate schedules before but this was a chance to get together, hear all the stories and look at the photos. The wedding took place in Cuba.
We had a pot luck dinner right after work and of course a glass of wine (or two). And any time you gather 15 ladies together, between the ages of 25-50, and add a little liquid refreshments - you just never know where the conversations will lead.
Good grief, the secrets and stories start spilling out. We had a great night and laughed til we were sick.
In fact I am blushing just thinking about some of the topics that we covered. You just never know what you are going to learn at a gathering of girls. People talk about men in a locker room - Forget it......a group of women is a lot worse.
On a more serious note, today I gathered up the girls and we went to an annual fund raiser for the Hospital - "The Highland Fling". (Our old hospital used to be named the Highland View Hospital)
They have flea market type tables, used book sales, food and home-made candy tables, plants etc. We go every year and on the way out the door I buy lobster rolls for our lunch. Mom gets a little exercise walking around with me and we always see lots of friends. They all enjoy seeing Mom. And a bonus for me is I come home with a big bag of fudge.
And I think I need to publish a retraction on the post about the sprout. I'm such a moron. OK - that sad little shoot of green was NOT a sprout. I guess I just got excited to see something.....anything. Apparently it just a weed or something. Some random spore that landed in a pot. DUH......
Now THIS IS A SPROUT
So that is 1 out of 16. I'm not ready to declare myself a gardener yet.
