I chose a bottle of red wine based on the recommendation of the people buying at this store and the hubster liked it very much. I also purchased a sourdough roll for us to split with the rabbit stew I made for dinner last evening. I have yet to try the honey mustard salad dressing, the chipolte sauce and the brown rice.
We stopped in at Back to the Roots, a fair trade community store, which now has a lovely cafe inside. We decided to try it for lunch. We each ordered hot tea and then a sushi selection. I had a lovely entree called Crunchy Veggie, which was tempura asparagus, avocado, spring mix and teriyaki sauce. It was wrapped in rice and seaweed. It also comes with bell pepper, but I opted to leave it out. I believe Nancy had the California Tempura and she liked hers very well too. She also had a bit of their soup of the day, which was a squash soup. I really wanted some, too, but it was cream based. I am sure we will be eating here again.
We also stopped at Bumbles Dry Goods where I found some lovely wood book marks and some handmade wooden salad tongs. I love Bumbles. They always have something that I've just got to have and everything is handmade.
Last evening I finally did some work in my Artful Journal and here is what I have to share:
|Just the beginning - I think the adding a bit of blue to the yellow worked just fine, but the one to the right of the yellow square in which I added a bit of yellow to the blue didn't come out quite right.|
|I made my red much too watery and am not very happy with this page, but this is a learning experience and I am hoping I will learn how to use the water brush better in the coming assignments.|
I also spent a bit of time with the My Memories scrapbooking software to make a couple more pages. The one with Zoë I made using one of the built in designer pages. I just added the pictures and the text; the wedding page I made using the custom options and adding my own background and embellishments.
|The embellishments on this page were purchased from Scrappers Guide.|
Stayed tuned - I am about to announce how you can win a copy of this easy and fun digital software.
My daughter is bringing her two girls out after school today so we can have a celebration for her younger daughter who turned 4 on Sunday. That means I have to get it together and go get some cupcakes and ice cream. I also have to get the gifts wrapped and a card made.
Time to make my move.......
