Hello dear friends. Happy Friday! The Northeast has been blessed with some gorgeous weather and I took full advantage of it this week.
On Tuesday, I met my new bff, Anne, and her friend, Kathy at The Fairview Inn Restaurant on the beach for lunch. Kathy is also a friend of Dude's, and if it weren't for her, I probably wouldn't have met my new bff, Anne. It was a little chilly but it was a lot of fun with these delightful ladies.
While we were there, Anthony Everett was filming a segment for his show, Chronicle. The Mister and I watch this news magazine show that covers plenty of fascinating places in the Northeast. It has been a great resource and life saver for my blog.
Yesterday, I joined the needlepoint ladies again. My new bff, Anne, couldn't make it so I made a go of it solo. We met at St. Joan's shop, Hingham Square Needlepoint Shop. It was great to see St. Joan again. She seemed very impressed with my sad little project. But then again, there's a reason I call her Saint Joan.
There were a couple of ladies there that I had the pleasure of meeting last time. But the majority of the ladies were new to me.
Who knew needlepoint enticed so many fun ladies? I met Suzie, who corresponded with me last summer. She has lived in my new hometown for thirty years and offered some great tips about living on the South Shore. It was great to finally meet her in person.
I could tell that the ladies shared a lot of history together and truly enjoyed each other's company. They laughed and teased each other and sometimes finished each other's sentences. As with the last meeting, the ladies were lovely to me and made me feel welcomed.
If you have been reading this silly little blog for awhile, you know that the Mister and I love to go to the movies. And if it centers around people
I adore Blythe Danner's voice and I'm so happy that she did not give in and have some gawdawful face lift. And Sam Elliott is so darn handsome! And talk about great voices...
I highly recommend this book, Dear Carolina that I reviewed here. Kristy writes Design Chic and is the author of this delicious Southern tale of family love.
Elin mentioned this book frequently during that great weekend in Nantucket with Sista. I have a feeling that it is loosely based on a few experiences in her life.
