The first night that we met for drinks in that lil bar, we decided that it’d be awesome to take an intuitive painting class together for our first field trip. Karen and Carol know a lady who has a very cool place in Simi Valley. Well that was an understatement. We went to The Center of Energetic Healing.
We all brought something to our pre-intuitive painting picnic (whew try saying THAT three times fast). We had a fabulous spread of snacks and wine. It was such a beautiful day and we sat on a little patio across from the art studio and chatted over lunch.
As we were waiting for our class to begin, we decided to TRY to take some photos of ourselves with the timer on my camera. Now, pay attention here in the first one. As I was setting up the camera I asked the group, “do you think I can get ALL the way over there before the picture is taken?”. “Of course – no problem”, they replied. I set the timer and I RUN (losing a shoe in the gravel as I went) only to barely make it into frame – haha.
As Jody posted, we went to the Wine Society’s Wine 101 event last night. VERY nice! There were quite a few little things that I learned. Not to mention we walked out with a case of different wines to drink – BONUS!!
Here’s a photo that we had someone take of us with my camera phone. Sorry it’s not the best quality but ‘eh … it’s a camera phone. I guess I’m going to have to be better about carrying an actual camera if we’re going to post images – haha.
So here we are, grainy, rosy cheeked and red eyed – at least we’re happy 😉
Okay…so how is it that I posted my concerns regarding my health and fitness this a.m. and now I sit here looking for my feet?
Kristy, Ron and I went to the Loose Goose Wine Society’s first Wine 101 at the Repertory East Playhouse in Newhall. It was fantastic…we ate dinner and then settled in for a fun filled evening of tasty facts and even TASTIER wines & food.
Yes, you read that correctly…I ate dinner and then proceeded to…yes, EAT more.
I tried to justify it by telling myself that it was merely amuse bouche – which translates to Mouth Amuser or small bite sized morsels served BEFORE appetizers (that can be a whole other blog in itself…) – But by the end…Whew…I felt as puffy as a profiterole stuffed with Bavarian Creme.
Oh well…I can see my toes when I lay down and everything else lays flat…hee hee hee
