How do you spell "significant"?

My friend Eileen is turning 50 this week (shhhhhh!).  When she ordered her cake the guy asked how to spell "significant".  She said, "give me a piece of paper."  It was fun to celebrate with her last night.  I say, life only gets better.

Happy Birthday to one of the most adventurous people I'm related to.

Apple picking

If you don't mind all the rules, Windy Hill Orchard is a pretty fun place to be.

My lunch buddy

I met my friend Emily and her sidekick Oliver at MexiCali Burrito today for lunch.  The food was good and the company was even better.

Sweet Betty

I'm helping my 89 year old friend Betty Manderino with her life history.  We had our first recording session tonight.  I found a transcription app that is going to make this pretty easy.  I love hearing all her stories.  She has had a wonderful life.  I consider her the lovely matron of the Arlington Ward.

A new old table

For a few years I've been wanting a bigger older dining room table.  I have an IKEA table but when you add food, plates and people, it felt like a kiddie table.  Then there's the issue of my small car.  So I invited my minivan mom friend to go antiquing today and I gave her gas money and bought her lunch and I found a table at a really cool antique shop in NH (our 3rd stop).  We lifted it right into her van.  I think it looks pretty good with the mis-matched chairs that I've been collecting.  I'm really excited about this new addition to my condo.  #iheartantiquing

Cobblestone Quilts

I happened upon Cobblestone Quilts this morning while out antiquing (we were stopped at a light and I looked over and saw the sign!).  My friend and I enjoyed their awesome selection of fabric.  I'm very partial to reproduction fabric and they had a big selection.  I'll be going back to Cobblestone Quilts.
