Meet Miss Vera, the matriarch of the retirement village where I work. :0) She's pictured here with her special heart shaped birthday cake and my boss lending a hand to cut it. At 93 years young, Vera still attends a weekly exercise class, has her hair done each week, enjoys numerous outings with friends and catches the bus into Toowoomba to go shopping each Monday. She has a wicked sense of humour and one of the most positive outlooks on life I have ever come across. When someone asked her the most significant event in her 93 years, her reply was ... the day she made the decision to smile more than she frowned. Just think how much that one seemingly simple decision can make an impact on a life. WOW! I want to be Miss Vera when I grow up! Tee! Hee! Hee!
Now ... the other lovely ladies in my blog title are the Fabulous Fiona, Quilting Fairy Extraordinaire and Michelle Ridgeway of Rag Tag Stitching, who were my lunch buddies yesterday. Michelle was very brave and came on a little road trip up our 'hill' to visit Fiona for a stitching/tea drinking/chat-a-thon. :0) And I was very lucky to be invited to join them once I finished my 'grown up' job. Not only was lunch DEEEEEE-LICIOUS, but the company was SUPERB! :0) And being good bloggers, there had to be a photo-fest before we all parted ways.
... Michelle and yours truly ... oooh!! A few shades of auburn hair between the two of us there! :0) Can you tell we were giggling quite a bit during this process?! Tee! Hee! Hee! Mischievous teddy bears! :0) And ...
... all three of us ...the Three Musketeers ... or as my Dad would say ... Triple Trouble! Tee! Hee! Hee! You should have seen us trying to get this photo ... talk about giggling and shenanigans!! Seriously ... if any neighbours has been watching, they'd have wondered what Fiona slipped into the salad dressing! Tee! Hee! Hee! Thank you so much for a fun afternoon ladies ... can't wait for our next play date! :0)
Right now, though, I'm off to clean my toothy-pegs before snuggling into bed for a good sleep before heading off to the beach ... which, just quietly, almost guarantees that it will rain this weekend! EVERY time we go to the beach it rains! Ah well ... catching up with family and a few wet weather walks on the sand will still be a great way to spend the weekend. Hope yours is enjoyable to. :0) Til next time ...
