Morning Meanderings…Weekend With The Girls

Good morning!  I had a wonderful weekend with the girls at our cabin.  It was our first weekend where we planned a baking and crafting weekend and it turned out fantastic.  Here are a few pics:

Heidi and Sara baking at the cabin

We had so much fun baking!  We each brought a cookie recipe to make enough so each of us could have 3 or 4 dozen to take home and freeze for the Holidays.


Me, Heidi and Sara standing on rocks in the Baptism river

I did not realize I was clinging to Sara’s hand until after I seen the pictures…. well… we were standing on little rocks and the water I am betting was pretty cold this time of year!  😀

The Geisha girls: Cindy, Heidi, and Sara

Who knew that .97 cent spa masks would be so much fun?  We laughed in these for about an hour!

Talking Heads: Cindy, Sara, Heidi and me


This was fun and I had no idea how much I looked like The Joker until we shot these pictures.  Hmmmm…. next years costume perhaps…..


We had a lot of fun and have already planned to do the same thing same weekend next year!  YAY! I will post cookie recipes and the craft pictures throughout the week as well as “how to’s” on them as well.  🙂

Tonight I have book club at my house.  The Botticelli Secret was a monster of a book and I will talk more on that tomorrow…. lets just say tonight’s discussion should be interesting and oh yes… there will be pictures.  Our theme is Italian and we are potlucking!

  1. Fab photos, Sheila! Sara looks like she is eating as much as baking (my kinda woman!) 😉

    I used to have “facepack parties” with my friend when I was younger – they were hillarious and your photos have reminded me. Ahhh, memories.

    Looks like you had a great time 🙂

  2. You could write Joker Meanderings! LOL

    I love the idea of a girls weekend retreat, with cookie baking and everything else. I’m sure there was a lot of gabbing until all hours.

    It’s always more fun to bake with others, don’t you think? My first baking experiences as a kid were at my cousin’s house, when we would really go all out. I incorporated some of those kid baking experiences into my book Web of Tyranny.

    Thanks for sharing….

  3. ROTFL!!!!!!!!! Those pics of the spa masks are priceless. Talking Heads?!?!? BWAHAHAHA…..

    Oh, I needed a good laugh this morning! And this is precisely the reason why I voted you as having the funniest blog on the “I LOVE YOUR BLOG” Awards.

  4. You really are blessed with a great group of friends…..I am waiting to read the take of the culb on ‘The Botticelli Secret’ especially after I have recently read it. The mention of cookies is making my mouth water and I’m on a diet so I better get away from the first photo…..see you !

  5. Hi! I’m new to your blog and found you by someone who found me from Cyn’s linky (Julie @ Knitting and Sundries). Thanks Julie! You’re party sounds like so much fun.

    I do have a linky on Saturday/Sundays for family friendly Book reviews/giveaways (adult/kid, fiction/nonfiction). You are welcome to add your book reviews & your linky if you’d like. I had such a hard time finding one that I started my own. I’m not real good at doing reviews yet but I’m learning by reading everyone else’s reviews! LOL

    Thanks! Tina “The Book Lady”

  6. Looks like fun! I wish I could get together with some of my friends more often! Can’t wait for the recipes and wine charm craft!!

Hmmmm... what do you think?
