Eleven Days & Counting
Can you believe Christmas is only 11 days away? I finally got the Christmas Newsletter all finished up and spell checked and ready for the OfficeMax printing today. Oh My Gosh! It turned out so good, and in the process, we ran into one of Melody's friends that works there now, Doug. Cards with newsletters will be hitting the mail on Monday.
Then we ran down to Santa Maria to do some shopping. Thought we would pick up Melody since Mike was working a "side job" today. We had lunch then went back to the house and picked up Brisa, her dog, for a drive in the park. This is the beautiful sight we found. Three trees all white against a green background. The picture doesn't do them justice because they were much whiter than they appear here.
Next, my little 86 year old neighbor asked me to find Alfie's Fish & Chips, a restaurant in Santa Maria that has authentic English Fish & Chips and a little "British Market". Margaret is originally from Wales, but spent her elementary and teenage years in England. So the 3 of us went on the hunt and found it. I plan on making up a little lunch invitation using a picture I took and a "to go" menu I picked up. It will be my Christmas present to her.
Finally, we went to the Mall in the center of town to visit Bath & Body for some room scenters. They have THE best smells! We picked up Cinnamon Stick and Coconut Vanilla. The guest room is going to smell so good with the Coconut Vanilla, probably a little like suntan lotion?? If it does smell like that it will be good since the "theme" of the room is the Beach.
