Met Miss Eagle today

Today I drove out towards the hills to meet up with Miss Eagle of Oz Tucker. She had a lovely lunch and a nicely laid table prepared for us. There was plenty to talk about, she was also a librarian at one time, is interested in food, and was very interested in my idea of taking the train all the way to Sandy Stony Point on our $3 Seniors tickets. I had brought along some of my book creations to show off her. Then we went to a craft warehouse to look at zillions of papers, stickers, stamps etc. What a fun day!

This is a big week for me for getting together with blogger buddies. On Tuesday I met Sharon from Beyond the Blank Page, who I've met face to face a couple of times before. Strangely enough we wound up in Bellbird Paper Arts again. Tomorrow I'm off to do a print workshop at Barb's, and one of the other people there will be Connie (Meow from Varieties of Life).

As I was driving home today the rain was really pelting down, the dark sky seemed to be just above the roof of the car - it was wonderful! But I had to think how long it had been since I've had to drive in that kind of weather. Oh may the dams and reservoirs fill to bursting point!

Hi Val ~~ You sure have been busy meeting blogger friends.
The rain has been wonderful hasn't it
and I hope the water storages are
getting plenty. Thanks for your
comments. The turkey roast had been in the freezer a while, so it was time to cook it, no special occasion
but it tasted really nice.
Take care Val, can we beat the Bulldogs? Love, Merle.

I have met some food blog friends, but I don't think I ever met other bloggers that visit Country Patch, mostly because they all live abroad... that would be fun if someone came to visit here!

Hey, Val, it was a fun day, wasn't it. I'm a bit disappointed in myself though .. I now realise how un-artistic I actually am !!
Thanks for sharing your day.
Take care, Meow
