last week was an oh so busy week
full of the most precious surprises
after 12 years, an emotionally wonderful visit
from a long lost, dear to my heart friend
lots of teary eyed catching up
discovering old memories we shared
forgotten similar tastes, & new passions . . .
for deliciously, stuffed to the ceiling old bookshops
for quiet evening strolls along the gold tinted shore
finding unexpected carefully hidden lapwings treasure
. . . later, sad goodbyes & heart felt promises to keep in touch
then, daughters lovingly packed anniversary celebrating picnic
shared by clear water lochs, with our nearest & dearest
with my very own oh so talented mom (see here!)
a family open studio, 3 generations "the red-den"
for "redden" is our family name
opening date (hopefully) the beginning of july!!!
the countdown begins
i think i may be rather distracted for a wee whileX X X
thank you so for all those wonderful anniversary congrats
i have missed visiting all my most favourite blog places!!
