Beautiful day in Shipsee!!!
Tuesday, June 29, 2010
What a wonderful day we had for meeting in Shipsee. The temperature was perfect, sun shining, and a nice breeze. Everything came together perfectly.
Sharon and I arrived earlier than expected. Only an hour for us from Michigan. LILYGAL found us not long after we got there. Not hard to spot with me in my orange Spark shirt of course. I almost wore a different one but then I'd said I'd be in orange. Let me just say LILYGAL is every bit as adoreable in person as she is on the team. Of course I had to call her a bad name - not a wrinkle and beautiful skin to boot! Needless to say we had lots of laughs. Oh and we found these really cute flip flops we had to have. A photo shoot was need to share!!
We had just drinks at our a.m. meet-n-greet so we returned to the Blue Gate for lunch. Yummy indeed and the poor waitress had to take a photo using each of our individual cameras. She likely thought we were nutso but she obliged us nonetheless.
Lollys was to die for. Pat thought she's died and gone to heaven. So many fabrics, so little time. We did learn that in the basement there were more and cheaper so next time we might start there first. Remember that TB for next year!
Weezie2 made great time from Wisconsin and I'm tickled she joined us. CountryJane is adoreable and we had fun talking grandkids and just getting acquainted.
Needless to say Sharon and I had no trouble talking non-stop on the way down and back and enjoyed meeting friends from Spark. Funny thing, you don't feel like strangers at all.
Looking forward to next year and hoping others might be able to join the fun as well. TB - if you come, they will follow. LOL You know, maybe we should make it a Spark Rally. Hmmmmmmm......................
.........................I see possibilities!!!
