Peachy day in Paradise


Busy day ahead here in the TB household.  Haley is doing a fabulous workshop at her house at 1p, so I’ll be there to scrap and play, along with several scrappin’  friends.

I’ll have to hurry home to pick up Dick so that we can go to the first house of a BSP progressive dinner.  The first house location is in town, and there, we will be served appetizers.  The main course will be served here (north of town), so I’ve got to get Dick to help me set up an extra table or two this morning, and get him to blow leaves off the deck.  We may actually need our outdoor heater tonight.  We’ll see.  It’s there if we need it.

And then the fun really begins.  At the next house, not too far from us, we will enjoy dessert and coffee while participating in our annual ‘vacation’ auction.  No, we don’t auction off a trip.  What we auction off are gifts that we purchase when we travel (it can be some exotic location, like Podunk, for instance).  We bring them wrapped, so that no one knows what is inside or who brought it, just the origin of the purchase.  The guys go nutz bidding against each other, all in good fun, since the money goes into our treasury…and then it gets given away to the local community.  Fun and worthwhile.  And always good food!

Happy, happy birthday to BFF Joan!  We’ll miss you and Dan tonight.

Whatever you do, enjoy your Saturday, y’all.  Life is good!

Now that sounds like a lot of fun and a great way to raise some money at the same time!

Can't wait to hear what you ended up winning at the auction!
