Weekend fly by! I haven’t checked in for a few days here. Goodness. Friday was quite busy. I went to lunch with the garden club and that was nice. A nice group of women. Of course, they don’t meet again until April! It was nice to meet everyone in a more casual environment rather than at a meeting. We were at the Log Jam, which I am eager to go back to.
I didn’t take pictures inside so as not to have the women think I am really weird – at least yet, anyway.
On Saturday, John took me out to breakfast for my winning football meal.
Winner, winner!! This was the Thyme Cafe, a new place that opened up. It’s feeling all festive around here:
I had a gingerbread waffle with *real* maple syrup. I pooh-pooh the Log Cabin, and since John was paying, I upgraded my syrup! 😈
My mother and I then went on a Country Christmas spree. This is an annual event where many artisans open their homes up to sell their goods and you drive from place to place using a very lame map.
It’s fun and everyone has refreshments. I had my share of cookies on Saturday!
We saw a loom shop:
Plus a farm where I got some yummy smoked cheese and a maple scone. Here were some babies resting.
That one cow was licking the other one’s ear. So cute (even if stinky).
Everything was all holiday decorated:
I also have been practicing up a storm this weekend. With the soap order I got, I now have a new axe to grind! I got a great deal on this guitar, too. With the Black Friday deal and sale price, I paid $189. Saved about $400, which put it into my budget. I tell you, this year has been great for me and finding deals.
Axe is a guitar in musician speak, BTW This is a Manuel Rodriguez guitar and has a cedar top with a beautiful inlay rosette:
The back and sides are bubinga wood and gorgeous:
My original guitar was a cheap student model and let me tell you, the difference is stunning between the 2. I didn’t realize how much a quality guitar would make a difference in my playing. The sound is gorgeous and it is so easy to play. I am in loooooooooove with the new guitar and I can’t stop playing it. In fact, my fingers are sore LOL!
I actually kissed the guitar, too. I know John really is concerned about my sanity now.
I am wearing my Broncos jersey, too, since it is Sunday. I am not on the Tebow band wagon at all, but I certainly am happy my Broncos have been winning!
Man, life is so good right now.
