Summer Retreat is Cool!

Embellishment 2

It is late August, which means one thing in my life… football ( or marching band) season has begun AND it is time for my Summer Scrapbook Retreat. While the crosstown football/band rivalry heated up this week, twenty seven of us gathered on Thursday and Friday to organize photos, create scrapbook pages, to relax, to catch up with friends and to eat great (and too much) meals and snacks. I hated to miss the GA/BHS Game, but was so glad to hear that GA prevailed!

Today, after much cajoling, Vivian and Neely produced a lovely pre-dinner wine cocktail with too many ingredients to name. Linda, our Honey Creek chef fed us a wonderful dinner of pork roast, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, great salad, peas and carrots. The food is always delicious, and we are all looking forward to her Fried Chicken tomorrow… of course there will be baked chicken for those who can resist, but not sure who that will be!

Earlier today, we managed to have enough dry weather to take our group photo. Here we are, 26 strong, missing one person who took a break to run down to Jacksonville for a party…

Honey Creek Summer 2015

Happily, we warmly welcomed six new scrappers to our group this summer. We hope they will join us again.
