Today they came to my house for a girl's chocolate party! What is more fun that eating a brownie rock sundae in the morning? Well nothing! Yes, there is a brownie under that ice cream, hot fudge sauce and whipped cream. *smiles*
I even made them wait for the first bite while I snapped their photo. We then took a walk in the woods by my house to see a farm dating to the early middle ages to walk off the sundeas. We could not go up to the farm buildings as they keep it locked when not open but walked around them and in a butterfly garden. We also had fun talking to a goat that thought we tasted pretty good and licked each of our hands. We then returned back to my house for a wonderful lunch that Carolien had arranged for us.
Carolien brought me a French lavender soap from her summer holiday and I also received a beautiful bouquet of orange lilies. I was given a pretty handmade necklace from the girls. Isn't it pretty? I took a photo of me wearing it. I had to use my mirror to judge I had the camera right. I really like it and will enjoy wearing it. Actually I am wearing it right now. I put it on right away after you had left.
Valérie en Sofia ~ Bedankt meiden! Ik heb hem meteen aan gedaan toen jullie weg ging en hij staat erg leuk. American hugs!

I just love getting together with my needlework friends. I am so fortunate to have a number of ladies that I enjoy spending time with, often with our needles in hand while we chat. Today I got together with someone I met through my blog. She used to come visit me here and later started her own blog. Carolien lives in the same city as I do and I am sure that, without blogging, our paths would never have crossed. She is such a nice person and I enjoy spending time with her. I have had the good fortune to meet her husband and youngest daughter already but still had never met her twin daughters.
