The Persian Pickle Club

I've been on a reading binge lately..........I just finished the Persian Pickle Club by Sandra Dallas, I liked it. It's about a group of quilting women; their friendships and secrets. It's not a long book. I seem to go off on tangents for a while, then get tired of it and move on to another interest. Right now I am reading, although I have always been a reader.

Yesterday bff and I had a fun filled day of shopping, eating, and card making. We made 4 shabby chic cards at Archivers......nice place! We also stopped at Dressbarn, the Birkenstock store, and Michael's crafts. Once again we ate at Red Lobster (I had a coupon). Fortunately, for my wallet, I wasn't in a shopping mood, in fact I spent more on my dinner than all of my other shopping combined. While I was gone Hubby took grandson J (5) with him when he golfed. I guess it went well, hubby would not talk and J's mom wouldn't answer her phone so I could ask J. The golfing was a first, hubby is a good grandpa!!!!

I got home at 7 and should have gone to the grocery store...but my back was/is hurting so I rested a bit on my recliner, washed the dishes, and made almost 2 scrapbook pages for Heather & Eastin (I have to have it finished by the 15th). I'll try to post some of the cards I made and some of the scrapbook pages soon.

WOOOHOOO This is my last week of working alone, I can hardly wait to have another person doing the 'other side' of the office work. I am behind with things b/c I could only work 4 days a week and right now we have extra work to do (audit and end of year).

Have a good week.......................keep checking here b/c I will have photos soon!


  1. Birkenstock,please don't mention that. I need a nice pair of comfy sandals again. Remember you and I have the same kind(the 4 strap ones).I bought those at least 4 yrs. ago,if not longer,so you can imagine what they look like now.LOL. They are the best ones I ever owned.I found them on ebay for $35 or 40?Some yr. I will get another pair of Birks.LOL.

  2. You are one busy gal :) I love the cards you made...
    Shopping with your bff is always a good day!
