Really Random Thursday, 11/7/19

Happy November 2019! This is a print I ordered from my favorite graphic artist, Molly (@tokodots) (minus the "November 2019"). I loved the enclosed thank you card--it shows a set of notecards based on my Delta Breeze quilt  (lower left corner)
Janice and I went out for lunch to celebrate her birthday on Thursday (Halloween). I took her to Seasons Bistro in Shaver Lake. Lunch was sooo good!
 The last time Mark and I were there, the waitress had recommended ordering the bananas foster, which turned out to be a superb recommendation.

Halloween 2019:

Good friend, Jane, had invited me to a craft and cocktails night. I've heard of these before, but had never attended one. It was such fun--the perfect combination of friends...

and a great craft to enjoy.
 This was trickier than I thought it would be.
 Karen and I have known each other for nearly 40 years, since our kids were babies.
Jane, Karen, me, Kristen, Christa and Jill
Haha, number 1.
On Sunday, we went to Palm Village to celebrate my father's 92nd birthday, although he insisted he is now 93.  He probably doesn't even remember that we were there so he can be 93 if he wants to be 93. Even though the delicious pineapple upside down cake we brought clearly came from a bakery, he later told my brother that Mark had baked him a delicious cake. 

Charlotte has one of the lead parts in her school's upcoming performance of Guys and Dolls. There she is in the bottom right. We are really looking forward to seeing it.
I've been wanting to see Downton Abbey before it's no longer on the big screen. So Monday night, Mark said, "Let's go to the 9:55 p.m. showing," even though he never really kept up with the series. 

There were only three of us in the theater. And about 45 minutes into the showing I started to feel sick and we had to leave. Stomach virus. Super ugh. We are going to give it another shot tonight.
Haha, number 2.

Looks like a great birthday celebration for the two of you. The kids are darling in their Halloween gear. I like the idea of craft night. They do wine and painting here. Hope the stomach bug was quick. Yuk!

Uncle Wes 92! Good to see your family ALL together.

My,, but your little trick-or-treaters are all growing up! Loved the Minions--so clever. As usual, you've had a fun week EXCEPT for the stomach flu. Sorry about that, and glad you are over it (as I'm writing this sooooo much later). I have yet to see Downtown on the screen and I'm kind of afraid I've missed it totally, so lucky you. Thanks for another great post!
