This is the Life!





I went to a wonderful friends house yesterday to spend the afternoon weaving.  I had my table top loom out on her deck to weave and she had her floor loom inside her lovely little building that she goes to weave on at the top of the mountain.  They also have what they call their glass house, and it is a little building with all windows and you get a lovely view.   When we were done weaving for the afternoon, her husband was wonderful enough to fix us a lovely dinner and bring it up to us in the glass house and we had a cucumber tasting (several varieties), a wonderful salad with all the fixings, that he grew in his garden, then we had linguine with basil pesto that he made from fresh basil out of his garden, with sausage; then we had cheese, wine and hummus.  It was a five star dinner in a wonderful setting that beats any restaurant view, that I have been in.  The first pictures of course, are of me weaving and Linda, over at Life on a Colorado Farm, won the towels that I am weaving right now.  The last two photos are of the view that I had while weaving, it was just wonderful!  Thank you Bob and Janet for a lovely day!

Have a wonderful day!
