Girls Night Out

Today was such a beautiful day - I really enjoyed the peace of being home. The skies were sunny and the temps just a perfect mid 70s.  

This afternoon I drove to Danville to do a bit of shopping and then met some girlfriends for dinner at Olive Garden.  The food was great and so was the company of old friends. It's so much fun to get together with friends.  We used to work together so it was interesting to catch up with the news of family, jobs, and interests.   

One of them gave me a belated birthday gift...

Isn't it neat when you keep receiving gifts even after the occasion?  Makes special days just last on and on and on.

Well, it was a darling green gardener's apron.  Sooooo cute.  It boasts plenty of pockets to hold garden spades. trowels, seed packets, etc. It is trimmed with some bright colorful striped edging and has the same material for the ties.  Now, wasn't that was a thoughtful gift!!  Thanks Vivian.

The drive home from the restaurant was quiet most of the time until the lightning lit up the skies.  Thunder is now rolling all around us but at least I'm home safe and sound.
