Weekend Fun!


On Friday night we had our good friends over for a meal. Dave, Jody, Bob, and Jan have been our friends since before we moved to Washington in 1988. Jody, Jan and I were walking buddies for years before Dear’s job took us back to California. Now that we are back we have some catching up to do. When the 6 of us went on a walking tour of Great Britain back in May of 2006 we were on a quest to find the best Sticky Toffee Pudding in Britain. If the pudding was on the menu we’d order one serving with 6 spoons. On Friday night we each had our own serving. Good times, good friends, good memories. Um yes, this blogger was so busy enjoying her friends she didn’t take photos of the food…


On Saturday the fun continued when Josh and Laura picked me up for an afternoon Sounders game. Winning was especially rewarding! Note: If you take a little one to sporting events where the crowd noise gets exceptionally loud like Sounders games these little ear protectors are a must! Isn’t little Oliver adorable!?

I’ve been having fun in Picasa using my photos as backgrounds for my mosaics. I’m linking up at Mary’s Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. I’m behind since Friday getting around to blogs but I’ll try to get around soon.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with these blurred out versions and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. Iā€™m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. How fun! I love using one of your own photos for the background of your mosaics. My family teases me that they sense a blog post coming when the camera comes out for anything. I too, often forget a stage that I wanted to include in a post. I LOVE toffee so I must go see what that pudding recipe is like. Have a grand week Ellen! Hope you have some sunshine!

  2. Oliver is darling!!! There are some things I am still trying to figure out how to do..I like your mosaic. I will have to check out picasa..

  3. Hmmm, beautiful post! I love the montage. Picassa for the background? I wonder if I need to download a newer version? I didn’t know that was possible.

  4. Looks like a fun evening, nothing like old friends, so much history!

    We had dinner with a couple last week.

    She was my roomie in the hospital when we both had our sons 38 yrs ago! Imagine, we have stayed friends all these years!

    The baby is adorable. My 4 little gkids make so much noise they don’t even notice noise. šŸ™‚

  5. Sounds like a busy and fun weekend. Oliver looks so cute with his ear protection. Take care and have a great week:)

  6. Wow! Those pansies really make a beautiful complementary background for your dining room and kitchen. Sweet little face there enjoying the game! Starting him early I see. (Great tip about the ear protectors!)

  7. I was going to ask how you did those backgrounds. Love that!

    Good friends and good food. How wonderful that you have such a strong friendship over all these years and have such great memories to share.

    Oliver is absolutely adorable.

  8. What a sweet little face and wonderful friends! I just bought my first pansies of the season yesterday and love those happy faces (all of them!).
