Weekend Update

We had another weekend where we literally hit the ground running...........well, almost! Friday afternoon we hurried down to Atlanta, gave Barker a quick walk through the neighborhood (which is gorgeous right now with all of the spring flowers and trees in full bloom!) and then met friends to enjoy a sumptuous wine dinner at the Oceanaire Seafood Room. Not only is the food and service excellent there, but the atmosphere is terrific AND, and this is a huge plus for us, it is well within walking distance of our digs! The featured wines were from the Lambert Bridge Winery in Sonoma County, and they were introduced by Andy, one of the winery's owners. We began our meal with fresh Spring Rolls of Ahi Tuna and Mango, followed by Seared Alaskan Halibut, then Grilled Wild Alaskan Salmon, then surf and turf consisting of grilled sirloin and smoked rock shrimp risotto. Dessert was incredible: warm center chocolate cake and coconut ice cream. Phew!!! Did I mentioned that we walked? (The amazing thing was that when I stepped on the scale this morning, I had actually lost weight!!!)

With the help and guidance of my dear friend and Web Mistress Eva, I labored over my website a lot on Saturday, but we took a break and enjoyed "Tent Meeting" at the Theatrical Outfit. (If you follow the link, you'll hear the opening song from the musical.) What a great production....but we wouldn't have expected less from the fabulous director, Tom Key!! We again walked to dinner that night.........we walk a lot in the city! Sunday morning included another great walk, this time through Piedmont Park, which is lovely this time of year.

During all of this time, I was fiddling around with this scarf:

It was indeed a labor of love! I'm thrilled with the outcome, and can't wait to wear it!!!

A few detail shots:

It has been overdyed, tied, salted, name it! But it was great fun and I love it!

Another gorgeous scarf! Wow. You certainly are productive. Judy, I checked out your website and it looks wonderful. The scarves (and other items) really stand out beautifully against the black background.

I've caught up with several beautiful scarves and also your new web page, which looks great. Your meal at the seafood restaurant sounds just delish. So nice to see your spring flowers. We are in autumn of course but the weather is still pretty hot and our deciduous trees don't seem to be registering that they should change colour and drop leaves. I went south to Canberra this week for Ed Hutchins' wonderful workshops, and trees down there were beginnning to colour up, really pretty. As yet I have no idea what my new location will provide as far as winter goes but so far it just seems to be perpetual summer. OOXX
