What a wonderful time we had yesterday with our family!!! We knew we didn’t have a lot of time to spend with them before we flew out to Salt Lake City, but we made the most of it.
Jim helped Beth negotiate the purchase of a new, used car for her, had a bite to eat enjoying green chile stew, and picked up a few things at Trader Joe’s. We were able to catch Christine between double shifts in her new apartment and also got to see our granddaughter, Alyssa. Even saw Beth’s husband, Tom, for a little bit.
We had fun watching Christine’s cat and Beth’s cat seeing a dog for the first time in their lives. Poncho was a perfect gentleman and let them check him out.
We also spent an very enjoyable evening at Tom’s parent’s home. Louisa and Frank are potters and have their large studio in their home. They have such wonderful pieces. I actually purchased my dinner plate and a couple of bowls.

Louisa prepared a delicious dinner of grilled chicken, roasted vegetables, huge mixed salad and a scrumptious pot of white beans with homemade pesto. They use their own pottery for dinner plates which made the meal extra special.
Thanks Beth and Tom for an evening of laughs.
After dinner we sat around and talked, munching on squares of Belgium chocolate for dessert between sips of wine.
Thank you, Louisa and Frank for a most enjoyable evening!!!
Remember, you are loved.
