Scottish Festival stuff

Plaids and kilts galore at the Scottish Games and Festival yesterday, but no Jamie Fraser in sight anywhere. Bugger. There was plenty of food, bagpipes, music, vendors and people everywhere. I ran into Joy and her cousin Christy for a brief chat.

I searched the vendors, looking for a Hamilton sash to purchase as nod to my possible Scottish connection, but only found an Ancient plaid, which is too orange for my liking so I resisted buying. This vibrant Modern plaid is much prettier and would have come home with me:

So I shall keep searching. Hmm, I notice there is a similarity between the Hamilton and Fraser tartans...

I wound up helping for awhile in the admissions booth with some friends before heading home. It felt good to prop up my feet...and begin a new book.

Later, MM and I met our camping club for pizza, then took them all out for a sunset boat ride.

Today promises to be another great day in paradise. How are you spending your day? I am going to a bridal shower.

Life is good, y'all!

How fun. Wish I could have gone with you.

Today we're just hanging around the house. It's been a quiet weekend and we don't get many of those.

Have a fantastic day honey. Big hugs from sunny California. ☺
