Last Friday, while I was unable to get online, my dear friend Kathy visited.
It was a wonderful day, where we both exchanged gifts, including some lutradur I gave her. I've had it for ages, and knew I would never use it, especially after she showed an interest in trying some of the techniques in Rebekah Meier's fabric art collage book.
She was so impressed with the book I loaned it to her. I may never get it back, but I don't mind. Of course, while taking photos, I completely forgot to eat my honey oatmeal cupcake I bought for both of us. I seem to be on a cupcake/muffin binge lately.
We spent over three hours looking at things each of us had gifted the other. I was over the moon with two (count them TWO) containers of E6000. Kathy prefers hot glue, while I prefer E6000. She told me she had three open and one never opened container of this wonderful adhesive, so I was thrilled that she thought of me. She also brought me some die cuts and left some of her dies.
While there, she showed me some videos on YouTube. It's no secret I can't get it on my old computer. I get about seven seconds, then the computer freezes up and I have to reboot. Sad, but true. I was shocked and impressed with the speed of her phone. To think a phone can do that, just about blew my mind.
She picked the place and I paid. I like this place and she I went there once before. She drove, so I thought it only fair I picked up the tab. After all, she had come to visit me, and I wasn't about to fix a meal.
That's especially true when we can eat this well
and she can eat meat and I can have veggies, beans, and rice. We both also had water with lime after drinking coffee at my house all morning. I'm hungry just looking at all that salad and veggies. I'm certainly ready to go back anytime Kathy wants to. Although we talked about going shopping, we spent too much time visiting and enjoying each other's company. As a result, we stayed at the restaurant for nearly two hours. What a day. Of course, we both wondered where the time went as she dropped me at home.
Now you've seen my T post, it's time for yours. Please link any post below that involves some form of drink. That
drink could be made from art, sketched, digital, hybrid, or
traditional. It can be a time when you were out and about, or a drink
you had at home. It could be in the form of a book you read, a postcard
received, scrapbook page you created, or a movie you watched. It
doesn't matter as long as you
can, in some way, tie it back to a drink. After linking your post
Bleubeard, the T gang, and I will be by
to visit and enjoy whatever you choose to share. And
remember, as Bleubeard would say, your photos may be taken any time, not
just on Tuesday.
And please don't forget to dig up a Second on the 2nd post. It's any post that you have shared in the past and can be anything you want to share again.
