Saturday Afternoon Scrapbooking

I don't know how long it has been since I worked on a scrapbook.
I was invited to join some women working on their scrapbooks and of course I said, 'yes'.
I had supplies in a box of our Red Wing trip from a few years ago, pulled it out and joined the group.
Great fun! D's husband made us Frapacinnos,while we worked on pages.

I even finished my travel scrapbook - including journaling. But only because it was just Bill and me on the trip (no children or grandchildren) and Bill didn't let me take many pictures. This project was done in no time.

I arrived home in time to join Bill for dinner at Noodles and Company (now in Burnsville) and then we caught the movie 'Date Night' - really cute and hilarious!

Did you have a fun day too? Hope so. The weather was beautiful.

Wisconsin Road Trip

I drove to Appleton, WI last weekend and stayed with my friend Wendy. She moved a year ago to be closer to family and I wanted to spend some time with her.
She is in a lovely townhouse with a great club house, pool and wonderful, caring neighbors nearby.

We toured downtown Appleton, the river front and Lawrence University.
We broke the tours into two days and didn't do a lot of walking since Wendy recently fell and broke her heel (Can you say OUCH?) and then a few days later fell again and broke her left wrist (another big OUCH). She gets around quite well on a scooter outside and inside too.

The weekend was spent at her house, eating, making cards, watching movies, and being entertained by friends that stopped by.
It was my kind of girl friend weekend - lots of time to chat, catch up on news, and relax.

Thanks, Wendy. I had a great time.

Note to granddaughters - M and L: this bear has glasses just like me!

Campus tour:

The flowers were beautiful all over campus.

Wendy's house (my car is in the driveway):

A baseball game on Sunday evening - Wendy's son Paul is in a league.

Monday afternoon and time to get on the road again. Happy travels, until next time.
