Avocado and Margarita Babes in Morro Bay
Denise and Jean, former co-workers at Aleene's Creative Living, came up for 'green day' in Morro Bay - avocados and margarita's. I hadn't seen Jean in years and years - thanks ladies for an awesome day - loved shopping in my home town! AND, Leslie Ann, Denise's daughter, was our official photographer - she'll be 21 in just a few days - she's not the little girl I knew back in the Aleene's days - time does march on so quickly.
We tasted yummy avocado themed food including Avocado Ice Cream (it was OK, give me chocolate!) and we did partake in a margarita even though it was chilly.
Harbor Festival this weekend - always something fun going on in town.

The coast has been fogged in the last few days, so I ventured the 20 minutes to San Luis Obispo for some sunshine. It's amazing in less then 15 minutes the temperature went from 88 to 64. I took See Canyon all the way to the end and it goes into Perfumo Canyon Road that drops out by Madonna Inn.

We went to a most divine restaurant in Santa Margarita - The Range! Lemon Pound Cake with berries - yummmmmeeeee! The owners and staff were so friendly, they even came out to the car as we were leaving to tell us goodbye and thank us for coming...I think we'll go back!
Granny Squares are Back!
The last couple of days I've seen granny squares twice! Once on Kathleen Sams blog and yesterday at a local nursery. Check out Kathleen's blog where she talks about how Granny Squares were the first thing she learned to create. Thanks, Kathleen for sharing the photo of the Granny Square Comeback!
"Who says granny squares aren't cool?! I just couldn't resist this dress worn by Cate Blanchett yesterday at the "Screen Worlds: The Story of Film, Television and Digital Culture" exhibition opening at Federation Square in Melbourne, Australia, on Thursday, Sept. 17.

You'll just have to wait until I win to see which one I chose...teeeeheeee....
I was going through my archive of many, many (too many!!!) photos to decide on one for the COSTCO International Photo Contest and ran across these photos - I was about to delete them, but had to share - too funny! Ice actually works to raise indentations in carpet from where furniture has been.
You let it melt and then vacuum!!!
OK, now I'll delete it!
