Utah and Shakespeare

Went  here

with gal pal Sue...
to see...

( link )

Plays were quite lovely
no Shakespeare though

Company of Sue was grand-
we shopped -
ate a little-
talked non stop 
3 hours up
all day Saturday till midnight
all Sunday Morning
and all the way home.
Sue only made 2 wrong turns
( I learned she does not read signs while driving)
and only tried to kill me in the car once.

Conversations ran the gamut -
 kids, ex's, friendships, food, varicose veins,
fat wrists, insane school system,
sex, food, home design, 
Christmas trees, food, purses,
antiques, wagon wheels, hair dye,
food
crazy people we know,
crazy people we are,
 more kids,
more food.
Is there ANYTHING better?
I love you girlie
Thanks
and yes, I will trim your bloomin' Christmas trees.

What did ya'll do this weekend?
*********
some clean up of blog business:

It is too hard trying to track you down otherwise..sorry
but I have floors to sweep and Gatherings to plan,
and trees to trim and WWC to read ( lol )
and there is no time for me to play 

(just an excuse for me to have him here  hehe)

Smudge, formerly known as Houdini is bathed, trimmed,
happy and running the household. 
He sleeps in the bed with Mom, Dad and 1 sibling.
Mom promises pictures soon.

There will be a Holiday Gathering!
"Love is all Around"
Date to be determined.
Contact ASAP if you are interested.
First few signs ups will determine date, 
so if you want a  SATURDAY or a SUNDAY, tell me quick!
Multiple projects this go round.
Seating is limited.

For local pals
We want to do potluck at my house 
like last year in the back yard.
Same fab group with maybe everyone bringing 
some new friends to meet and nosh with?
Who's up for it before weather turns too cold?

*also*
I need some prayers sent up and out for several pals.
Some dear local friends, several blog friends.
Serious stuff going on.
I'm knocking on the cosmos and the heavens,
guys, add some power to it OK?
thanks

Sending up mega prayers...AND, would LOVE to do the potluck thing! Count me in...life is slowing down from summer now, and my calendar is clear!

What a fun time you must have had! I could use a little time away like that myself! Prayers are definitely being lifted up. Please add my family to the list. My hubby has been out of work since early May. Praying that something opens up soon for him...THANKS!

I'm so needing one of those gal pal trips....My hooking friend and I do road trips here and there and get lost every single stinking time - seems she can't talk and drive at the same time...and me, I'm just horrible at directions! I've joined your prayer chain when I got your email - I can't imagine the pain and overwhelming worry in those folks' lives now. Will continue lifting them up till you tell me all is well...ok - better.... Wishing you a beautiful week....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
