Ariel.....look what you just got.....!!!!

when i came home the living room had it's usual clutter ..... the recent addition of Eric's surfboard that covered the two cushioned sofa .....  the perfect place keeping it handy for early morning tides when the waves can be the best of the day... an easy quiet escape out the front door without having to remove the surfboards from the back patio.....

backpacks, beach towels, .....

just by chance I saw the backside of the white envelope blending into the black and white sofa fabric pattern....

who knows how long it had been there??? Nobody said "hey Mom...you've got mail"

since I had already been given the heads up a surprise was on the way...I wasted NO TIME in racing to the kitchen drawer to retrieve the scissors and reveal the contents....

a wonderful surprise from my friend JuJu....





super cute.....!!!!
I want to use this map and see these places!!!


she surprised me with a set of camping dish towels...I've never seen these before and was thrilled how adorable they are.....

I can't wait to add them to Ariel's kitchen (for decorations only...way too cute to use them!!!!)

I'm posting them on the Sister On The Fly facebook site and I know there's going to be a flood of questions asking where I got them...and where can they all get a set for themselves!!!!

we've been enjoying a very warm day at the lake....warm??? how 'bout hot...117 degrees..

we've stayed inside...t.v. watching....knitting....napping....

we did have a guest stop bye....a friendly fellow who would have come right into the kitchen if the slider door was open...and if the dogs would have have stopped barking....

I'll post his picture tomorrow....I think he'll be back tonight.....

....today we had originally planned to go camping in Northern California in Ariel....but too many miles and too short of time we decided to head to the desert...

there'll be other rallies...other reservations in the future....

we needed to finish up some paper signing at the lake...an extension of our commitment to continuing the fun we enjoy on the water...

tomorrow we'll float.....until it gets too hot....and before too burned...

Thank you JuJu....you're a sweetheart and I LOVE the towels.....LOVE  THEM!!!!!

I'm very lucky we're friends...!! I sure do wish Goose Creek was closer....
