March snuck in today like a lamb. It was a bright, sunny, cheerful kind of day.
It was the kind of day where everything seemed to be OK in my little town.
I have told you about our Town's Believe Campaign in support of a beloved citizen battling cancer. The latest news is the surgery today was successful. It was almost like you could hear a collective sigh of relief as news spread.
Mom was at day care so that meant Auntie and I could enjoy a rare treat - lunch out together. We took a friend with us and had a great time at Bella's Cafe and Bistro. We saw lots of people we knew and had a few laughs. (photos borrowed from fb)
We all had something different and it all looked and tasted amazing. But the best part was it was just a nice break. After lunch I stopped in just next door to Flow Lifestyle Boutique where Stephanie has just started a new coffee/tea bar.
She has me addicted to the Chocolate Chai organic coffee. I grabbed one before returning to the office. We had a great laugh on facebook yesterday at another friends expense. (Just teasing of course) Much to my pal Terri's chagrin, Steph had a coffee delivered to my office yesterday. Naturally I rubbed it in to Terri who works waaaay on the other side of town. (Yes, I am spoiled) And Yes, I love it.
So today as I picked up my coffee, I paid for an extra one. So tomorrow when Terri makes her regular Friday afternoon visit to Flow - she will be surprised that her coffee is on me!
A rug update: Thank you for all the suggestions. I agree that the plain blue isn't exactly right. I tried to think far outside the box last night with a burgundy plaid but after only adding 3 strips I quickly ripped it out. I was almost paralyzed with where to go next.
Then this afternoon at work (I really hesitate to admit this here but......) I looked through a bag of wool stash in my office. Yes, I have a small stash of wool behind my desk. Don't ask...... Well, deep in the bottom of the bag is a large piece of dark blue plaid wool. Lighter than the outline wool and darker than the blue from the last post. Yippee!! I think this might work. I hope to cut some of it tonight and try a small section. Fingers crossed.
I hope you all had a great day too.
