Friday, Friday!

Here I am in Portland. It's my next to the last day here. Hubby flew in yesterday,  (Friday), and we'll drive home together tomorrow after church.

Yesterday the sun was out nice and bright for the first time since I arrived so Miss Piper and I took a long walk and ended up at the park.  She loved the swing!

I took her to daycare at noon so I could have lunch with Gracie, Teresa and Taci. She only had to be there a couple of hours since Mommy picks her up at 2:30 every day.  It was still hard to leave her since she was reaching for Grandma as I walked away.

I arrived a little early for lunch so I checked out an antique store next door.  I have a love for all things vintage. Here are a few pictures of a couple id my favorite displays.
The sink is exactly like the one we had in our kitchen when I was a child.

Lunch was wonderful. We've met at Boccelli's in Gresham before and the food is delicious.  But the company was even better!  Oh how I enjoy my precious time with these three ladies.  Before we knew it we had talked for two hours!  So we moved our little party across the street to the yarn shop, "Little Lamb and Ewe".  We looked around, touched all of the yarn, talked some more and bought a little.  Then it was time for us to say good-bye until the next time. 

My purchase!  I think it will be a Christmas gift.

I sure wish I lived closer to these ladies. Maybe some day, you never know what lies ahead do you?

Piper woke up this morning to find Grandpa had returned and she was very happy about that.  :-)

Now, I'm off to play with Piper. I think we're taking her to a harvest house for pumpkins today.



  1. LOVE that shot of Piper with her ponytail shooting straight up! LOL! I wish I'd had time after lunch to look at the antique shop, but it was a swim day. I enjoyed the heck out of our lunch.. I think you need to move over here.. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Just look at all you girls together! I always wish I was there when I see the pictures y'all post of your get-togethers. And yarn too? What could be more fun?! Your grandbaby is so precious.

  3. What a darling little girl. Looks like you had lots of fun with the ladies doing what I'd love to do ;-)
