Stormy Weather

We have been having really strong rainstorms here - with lots of thundering going on - one of the ad reps came back to our office today and had a photo of a tornado that she saw nearby.

Sunday I went to the beach and met Kiki there - the waves, for this area, were really good and the surfers were all out in full force. I had packed two diet sandwiches, some cherries and Lipton Diet Green Tea - which I drink all the time - it's good when you want something more than water but you don't want a soda. Kik had to leave after awhile and I stayed on - I had brought part of my Sunday NY Times with me and spent time reading that and also had a mystery book, Catering to Nobody by Diane Mott Davidson - a cooking mystery book if you can believe that - you get very hungry reading her books! The day was right up there with all perfect Sunday afternoons.

Last week was really fun because I got to meet Kukie, Kenady and Kik for lunch - it was really great meeting "the bloggers" and knowing that I "know" them - but not really having voices and faces to go with it all and kind of getting more of the puzzle of friendships and caring about each other to come together in a whole picture. I was happy they included me and sorry I had to go back to work and leave the party - and they were having a party!!! I am fortunate that Kik has introduced me to so many valuable and truly kind people through her blogging.

Wow, what a great little gathering!

A cooking mystery? Strange. Trying to discover the Colonel's secret recipe perhaps?

Oh Chef! You made me laugh on another rainyish morning! Thanks.

Haha! An even bigger mystery - what happened to the taste in a MacDonalds Big Tasty? Don't know if they do them where you are, but I have had these twice (the second was because I thought maybe my first one had been on a bad day) and both times I decided that the box would probably have had more flavour! Hope the day improves for you!

I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon Kiki as she is the one who encouraged me to blog, then I got to "meet" her entire family and now we have all of these amazing friends.

And I love the cooking book mystery! I'll have to add that to my list!

love to you and hope to see you soon! e

You already know how I feel about having met you Claire. But...I'll just tell you again. You're a Godsend! I know God put us together and I'll never forget how much of an answer to prayer you have been to my life! (tears)

Love you!
