The girls had been looking forward to Gillian's visit for a long time...they even dreamt about her last week. When they heard she was coming out for a basketball tournament, they thought maybe we could all go watch her play. What a disappointment that she would just be a spectator this time, and not out on the floor racking up the fouls! We wish you all the best at the Brandon University, Gillian...it doesn't sound like the studies are interfering with your social life.
We enjoyed a great smorgasbord of appetizers (forgot to take pic's of that!)...it's always fun when everyone brings something. Heidi loves sushi...so Broni brought a platter. I have to admit that I finally gave in and tasted sushi. I somehow thought maybe I could get through life without ever trying it and no one would notice. It was OK...what can I say?
Oh yes...and it seems there was some important game happening yesterday that couldn't be missed! When Dad arrived, he was wondering if we weren't planning on watching the ball game...he had been hoping it would be on. OK...why not? We had enough commentators on hand, so no sound was necessary!
I made Heidi a soft, furry throw cushion and wrapped it up with a few other things to tickle the senses...thanks for the idea, Vee. (taste...Lindt chocolate; see...framed foto; hear...CD; smell...a lovely miniature rose that actually never had much 'smell';...and the cushion for feel)
I have no idea whether or not the right team won last night...but there'll always be another game. Young and old, it was so good to all be together. It's called family!
It seems my feet are sticking to the floor today...so I better go look after that.
