One More Recap ~ Lest We Forget!

Welcome to my version of sharing our events over the past weeks!

At our age...it's easy to forget some things,
so I'm just taking a few minutes to recap some
of our golden highlights together over the past month.
I thought it was going to be just the Chilliwack Girls at Grand Pappy's,
for our very first book signing....


Before we knew it, Lovella, Anneliese, and Julie slowly moved in, one at a time,
checking to make sure everything was in order.
And before we knew it....
Someone hollered...

"Won't you sign my book?"

We turned to see who was so impatient.
It was our dear Betty, all the way from Winnipeg.
She surprised us one day early.


The following day we scooted off to Lepp Farms where once again,
we were greeted by the public.
What makes this photo so special?
We are all FARMER"S WIVES!
Thanks Karen for joining us...while reporting
for the BC Holstein News magazine.

I love this fancy footwork.
We don't only feature books, but the latest trends also.
Could the real trendy person please identify herself.

A pleasant welcome at Wink's for another book signing.
As you know this has become one of favorite places to visit and shop.

House of James invited us the following Monday night.
Young and old came to check us out.
We kept signing till they ran out of books.
Meanwhile our husbands were in the back room
cheering on the hockey game, highlighting the Canucks goals.

The highlight of the weekend, was spending time in Her HIS Shop.
We've had so much fun watching HER build her dreams.
She's chosen us and we've all tried to help support in whatever way,
that was necessary to help accomplish her dreams,
which we know all own together as a MGCC group.
SHE/WE could not of done this without Terry's support!
Thank You Terry!

Men at one end...

Women at the other end...
signing away.
Has anything changed in our circles?

Last, but not least...
I love how farmers, quickly clean up.
Just dump everything into the back of the pick-up and haul it away.

Thanks Girls!
This whole idea of writing recipes for a blog,
and signing books,
has never been on my bucket list.
But it's sure been an opportunity of a life time,
sharing, exploring and dreaming about new adventures.
We've cried, laughed and encouraged each other many times.

Thanks for being there!

  8. I enjoyed that from afar - so many of us have lived this with you - vicariously, but thoroughly nonetheless!
