Hahaha, Rob and I had been speaking to each other on the phone last night, when the conversation got a little silly with me saying, "how much do you love me", with him replying, "bunches". "How much bunches" I asked. He stated, "I did buy you flowers once". "Yes", I had said, "You loved me one bunch of flowers once."
I think after this morning, I can well consider myself two bunches of flowers loved.
Once Rob had gotten up for the day, he called me over to the Patio doors to have a look see ...
I have decided I was going to host a once a month Give Away at "Cindy's Recipe Exchange" on Facebook, since it gained such a good response last Month. To qualify each member has two week to submit a "tried, tested and true" recipe along with their OWN photo of same. Two recipes per member is the stated limit.
Today I was being hostess to an Epicure Party with Anita Dejong of Dejong Acres Farm as our Epicure Consultant. I got going on last minute preparations with the flowers fitting right into the plans quite lovely.
Then I made sure all was ready for Coffee and Tea service.
Anita arrived at 1:00 pm to give herself a head start on setup before everyone began to arrive at the schedule time of 1:30 pm.
Thank goodness Rob was here as he was a huge help to Anita with bringing in her product and supplies. It was not too cold out that the Farm Fresh Eggs she had brought along could be left just outside the door in the box she had brought them along in. Perfect !
The girls started to arrive, seemingly all one right after another ... Abby Miners was soon to arrive with some product she brought along from Miners Maple Products ... more goodies for everyone to think about purchasing for themselves or for some unique gift giving for this upcoming Christmas.
It was wonderful to have two great gals from Grey-Bruce who are so very involved with their family, home business and community. I was honoured to have both Anita and Abby here.
... and in the above mix I forgot the Chicken ! How could I forget the Chicken especially when I had Anita bring Rob and I along 4 Dozen Farm Fresh Eggs just for us !!! Oh man ... there really are chickens there to purchase by the dressed bird, or from the undressed ones you may purchase their eggs.
Onto the Epicure Party ... we had so much fun. What a wonderful group of woman we made ... lots of fun and laughter was had by all of us. Life is good when you have so many positive fun people surrounding you.
Anita played a little game wherein everyone went away with a prize. Then there was a little intro to those who were not familiar with what "Epicure" was ... samples were had, beverages served, stories exchanged, and a little bit of buying came next.
I think it had to be around 4:30 pm when things wound down with everyone saying their "good-byes", all ten of my guests. Anita packed her stuff up, and while Rob took it all down to pack away in her vehicle we were able to unwind a bit and have a cuppa tea together before Anita headed back to her own home. We were both tired, but "a GOOD tired", it was.
Thanks Anita, you know I always look forward to the next time we get to see each other !
By the time I got all the "good" dishes washed up and the dishwasher going with the other dishes it was 6:00 pm. Rob and I headed it downtown Wiarton to stop in at our bank machine, drop off a dozen eggs to our friends, then we made a "beeline" for the Subway shop for some Supper. I was too tired to cook us anything at home, but we sure enjoyed us a Sub each.
I am kind of hoping for a bit more sleep this night or at least more then I got last night. I don't mind being tired too much when it is "a GOOD tired", "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
