Good Gravy! I do not deserve to be calling myself a blogger. One post a month? Gads!!
Maybe I should be called a blonth?
Blonth: One who blogs only once a month.
Or what about Mogger?
Mogger: A monthly blogger.
Eeek, neither sound very appealing really and I should just pull up my big girl britches. I do thank you for continuing to come by. You really spoil me terribly, but please don’t stop 😀
Hey! Now that you’re here, won’t you stay and say hello to my little friends?
Surprise! I’ve just been back to California for a visit with my BFF Alys of Gardening Nirvana and her whole crew. We had the best time. Get this, last time I was in California, it rained. My arrival this trip was also announced by a rainy day.
**Attention other draught stricken States, Boomdee is available for engagements. Please email me directly with details (note: you will supply all ‘refreshments’).
Speaking of refreshments, I couldn’t help snapping these pics of different brews available at Trader Joes. We don’t have Trader Joe’s in Alberta and I was wowed by these graphics. (You do take your camera grocery shopping too right?) Well actually, I don’t even drink beer, I just wanted to buy it all for the cool packaging. That’s darn good marketing, don’t you think? “Hey Alys, I feel a party coming on!”
Remember the last party we had in San Jose? Alys, her sister Sharon and I, got all dolled up and went out for lunch at Lisa’s Teahouse & Treasures. Crack me up! I laugh every time I see myself and this crazy hairdo. Hey Boomdee, “the 60’s called, they want their bangs back”.
We did make it back there on this visit but quietly flew under the radar. No wigs, just our appetites and the desire to be treated like the princesses we’re convinced we are. Everything was served up on lovely China and was tres delicious. Princess Alert, my fingers don’t always fit in those tiny teacup handles, Gah!
Tiny teacup handles aside, each and every day was action packed. Including celebrating Alys’s birthday, a famous flan, shopping, train trips and more. Check it out!
We managed to pack a lot of fun into 7 days, and it went far too fast. Alys is always a great host. Next summer Alys is coming to Edmonton! Way! I can’t wait to spoil her in return, because I have the best bestie bar none.
