What happened to this week? The last thing I knew I was packing up from our last show, and now it's Friday! Even my bananas can't tell what day of the week it is! (I have two on my plate!)
Five on Fridays
1. I love high heals and big hair
I can't help it, I'm an 80's girl. I've always worn high heals and had big hair. But, now that I'm getting a bit. . .ahem. . .older, I've decided I need to cut down on the heal height. I made myself a promise to no longer buy shoes with 4" heals. Besides, they are too hard to walk to work in!
2. I'm a list maker
I've been so off this week. I feel like I'm jumping from project, to project, to project. I finally realized that I didn't write down my list of tasks at the beginning of the week! It's amazing how far off I can get without the guidelines of my lists!
3. It's been easy knitting for me lately
When I'm having a week like this past one, I need easy knitting. I've been in so many meetings, trying so hard to wrap up all my projects and tasks before we go on vacation and make our big move! So I wanted to be sure I had easy knitting with me, something I could do without thinking or even looking. So what's on my needles, an infinity scarf!
4. I'm an early riser
I love getting up just before dawn and watching the sunrise. It's so amazing to see the sky slowly light up and burst with colors. It's the one thing I'll miss when we move!
5. It's typically early to bed for me
Like 8:30 pm early to bed. But in my defense, I usually read in bed for an hour.
A Week in Review
Look at how amazing the sunrises have been this past week!
Each morning, I stand on the back of our boat (the lazarette) and take a photo of the sunrise. I'm always super glad my neighbors don't see me because typically I'm in my jammies, with messy hair and no glasses!
Only once I was caught by our neighbor, Russ. I just stood there, like it was no big deal that I'm standing outside in my jammies with my iPhone held only inches from my eyes because I hadn't put on my contacts yet.
"Oh, good morning Russ," I said nonchalantly.
Then I turned around and ran back into the boat.
I hope these photos inspire you to create something truly magical!
Dinner in the Dark
Last Saturday we were invited to have dinner with our good friends Darnell and Roy. They live in Napa, and we were there for our very last show of the year. When the show ended, we closed up the booth, stopped by the store for some wine, then drove over to their house.
But just was we drove over the 1st Street Bridge, there was an explosion to the right of us. It looked like lightening across the sky. And then there was another one! We realized that the transformer that was just to the right of our truck had blown just as we drove by.
It was dark when we arrived at their house. All the lights in the neighborhood were out. But that didn't stop us from having a fantastic dinner together!
Roy fired up the grill, and Darnell used the gas cooktop to finish cooking the most delicious dinner! Pork tenderloin with a mustard sauce, roasted potatoes, a garden salad. and french bread. Oh boy it was good!
"I love dining by candle light.." said Diana's mother.
"Yeah, it's a good thing the lights aren't on, because I'm pretty ugly" said my Faithful Sherpa.
Thank you Roy, Darnell, Diana and Diana's mother. We had a fantastic evening with you!
Well, that's it. The last show for 2017
Thank you, everyone, for always supporting small businesses and artists. I loved meeting each and everyone of you. We will update our Event page as shows start filling up for 2018.
with much love and gratitude,
Eva and her Faithful Sherpa
