RABBIT RUG & PUDDINGSTONE ~ ~ ~
Sonny took this picture a few days ago down in the woods ~ it's a big puddingstone rock covered with snow! Puddingstone is left from the glacier that was in this area many eons ago ~ it's kind of like the garbage that the glacier left as it moved across the landscape. If you double click on the photo, you can see all cracks and crevices that were formed.
I'm kind of excited today because I just made plans to attend a hook-in Sarasota while we're there in February. Searsport Rug Hooking is hosting their first annual hook-in with several vendors that I haven't seen before and it will be a chance to network with different rug hookers. A new friend, MJ, who took a class here this fall, invited me to join her and it coincides with our visit, so, finally, I made the decision to go. The hardest part will be missing out on being with Sonny and our friends for the day ~ I told them to not plan anything fun until I get back!!
We had a fun weekend ~ Sonny boy turned 67 on Saturday and we went to dinner with friends and intended to stay and listen to a band from Put-in-Bay that was playing there. But ~ my son and his wife and other friends were at the new wine bar in our little burg and called and texted and called some more until we finally went to join them! It was great fun! We knew almost everybody there and a good time was had by all! We went out with other friends on Friday night and ran into Sonny's daughter ~ she secretly told the waitress that she wanted to buy the bottle of wine that was on our table ~ which was great ~ except it wasn't our wine!!! Our friends were surprised and so was Sonny's daughter, the next day!! Oh, well ~ her intentions were good!! And our friends enjoyed it immensely!!
That's it for today ~ I'm working on tax things and other fun stuff ~ have to head to the office supply store shortly! The second new dishwasher arrived a while ago and Sonny was here to check it out ~ so by tonite, my dishpan hands can take a break ~ maybe! Thanks for stopping by ~ hope all is well in your world!
