Thursday This and That

What a gorgeous day it was. Sunny, breezy and my nose was runny, sneezy! Have you heard that the pollen in our air is increasing due to global warming. In some areas like, Atlanta, the pollen count has been 26 times normal. Thank goodness for modern day remedies.

Today, STASH (Some Thursday at Someones House), was here. We had a great show and tell and a wonderful discussion of Twyla Tharp’s book on creativity. We are only on chapter 2. It was Terry’s birthday. Here she is with her new polka dot piece and other red adornments. Can you tell that she loves any shade of red? It looks great on her, don’t you think? You can get a sneak peak at the polka dot piece.


Beth had to leave early, but the rest of us went to Papa Haydn’s for lunch, to celebrate birthdays, because they have the best dessert menu — a list of about 20 delectable treats. I ordered the Boccone Dolce — Swiss meringues drizzled with semi-sweet chocolate, layered with fresh fruit and chantilly cream.

Here are Reva, Linda, Gale and Terry, with empty dessert plates. I forgot to get photos of the desserts. You can see that we dined al fresco.


Tonight, Mr C and I attended the Cathedral Maundy Thursday Agape meal and the very moving service after. The meal was Mediterranean — lentils, couscous, humus, pita, feta veggie salad and Baklava.

    I read that book a few months ago, and feel like I should read it again and again… or at least list the major points and stick them up on my wall so I can remember them LOL

    I like the ideas of your STASH group. I really should try to find fibre art people nearby to meet with.

    What fun!! Red suits Terry to a T, so to speak.
    It’s frigid here in Atlanta, it’s warm in Portland….go figure………..

    I LOVE Twyla Tharp’s book. There is stuff I use every day in there, probably the best book on creative production I’ve ever read. It’s so great to see you will all your buddies, seems like you just make friends everywhere, and it hasn’t been that long since you moved there.
    Hmmm, those eggs, wonder if I’d have time to make some. They turned out great!
