We're here!

Well, we arrived on Tuesday a little wet from driving in the rain for 2 1/2 days but safe and sound.  We did have some dry hours but more rain than ever! Poor dogs (& ME) had to walk in the rain so often.  One night just as I started to get dogs on the grass it poured!  And I mean a downpour like you wouldn't believe.  My shirt was soaked from the rain going through my raincoat! And this is what our girls looked like!  This was after their towel dry!
Of course, Wed. was margarita night out with Karah, Howard, Sally and Dan!  We had a ball eating some good food and enjoying our 99 cent margarita's!  Oh how I missed those!!

Karah and Sally enjoying a beverage!  Food was delicious!!  

Dan, Howard and the back of Bob's head!  Just a fun night of laughing and talking!  We're actually meeting up with both couples for dinner on Saturday at the restaurant here in the community.  Yum!  Can't wait!

Thursday, New Year's Eve, was spent with our 'gang' at a great Italian restaurant, Mesa de Notte!  Food was delicious but did take some time...the place was packed..

John was being our waiter!  No, he's not a real waiter, he's one of the gang!  HA

I almost forgot!  Before dinner we headed to Verna and Ron's for appetizers and drinks!  How nice of them to entertain us again!

This is my quilting bud, Susan and John's wife, Marilyn!

Back of Patricia's head, Verna, Jan and a partial view  of Marilyn!

Women were in the kitchen and men jabbed on the Lanai.  

Today, the gang and a few other couples were guests at John and Marilyn's for a wonderful brunch!  Food was so good!!!  As was the company.  We had such a nice time and never did eat dinner tonight...although, I ended up eating a piece of cheese and two Windmill cookies at 7!

Weather has been beautiful, high 80s, which isn't my, lots of humidity, which we normally don't have.  It will be turning cooler based on forecast, which is ok with me.  Bob won't like the cooler weather.

so that's my  life right now...eating out and spending time with friends.  Not a bad life but I do have some art to create!  I'm starting on my fiber Valentines so tomorrow I'll make a run to JoAnn's to pick up some Pellon for the sandwich. Until then, hope everyone had a great New Year celebration!!!
