We had a wonderful 3 days but are very tired. We took our dancer home to a small holding outside of Chatteroy Washington. Her parents bought an old Grange Hall and are in the process of refitting it to a community hall and bed and breakfast. We were treated to the beautifully redone apartment. So comfortable and nice. We slept well , they had cooked a delicious salmon dinner. We took off the next morning to do a little shopping. I bought a new bra with a racer back (hard top find in my size) at Ross for $4.00 also 2 new bread pans for $6.00 each. I have two bread pans that are glass and they always make the crust a little too brown. Bought Hubs new dark glasses as he had broke his good ones and also a few new shirts and a set of rain gear on a good sale. We continued on to our good friends in Rathdrum Idaho.
We went out to dinner and then came home to play Monopoly. Laughed until we were sick. Went to bed and went out to scout huckleberry bogs the next morning. We found several loaded with green berries so we know where we will hit in August sometime. Then we had lunch and Hubs and I got ready to go to a Wedding. The Wedding was at a beautiful Garden (Victorian) in Deer Park Washington. It was about 1.5 hours away from our friends and 2.5 hours from our house. A beautiful scene, but I felt very over the top. I just don't understand people who spend so much on a Wedding. It is their choice, but it makes me sick. Every guest there was expected to drive 2.5 hours for a late afternoon wedding and with the drinking surely most stayed the night some where close. That is one very expensive wedding trip along with the gift. We were able to drive home as we do not drink, but we did not get home until after midnight.
The Wedding had a dance and it was slow going after the bride and groom and father and mother dance. Hubs finally said lets get the party started, so we went up and did a couple of fast jitter-bugs (it almost killed me) but I smiled through it all. Kids started to join us and then the dance floor was full the rest of the night. We almost won the couple married the longest dance but came in second to a couple married 55 years. We paled in comparison with 36. All in all it was a very nice weekend. Now we have to clean up and get ready to go to the coast. I did not spend much money this weekend so I have money left over to add to vacation.
Well I had better get ready for church. We ate so much this weekend that we are just going to have snack for dinner, and I do not have to cook! Yippee!
Have a restful and peaceful Sabbath.
