Just Another Manic Monday
Just a quick hello. GG has taken the day off so we'll be enjoying another morning of boot camp gardening.
At least we won't have to stop at noon as we did yesterday so I could run to the gym for an hour with Andrew.
Stop working out so we can work out? Curious.
Saturday was a blur of activity: adding ribbons to bouquets, packing all and then hauling them and the centerpieces up the steps from the basement to the van. Up a long stairway. 21 pieces for one wedding not including the cake bottles. 42 for the gala. 11 For the other wedding. That's a lot of up and down. Gwen and I kept trying to do the math and figure out how many trips we'd be taking but some only carried one at a time(me) others two in a small bread tray. Variable math is not my strong point but I love that I kept trying to work the numbers out. Self soothing:-)
So a few shots, a bit of the all Coral Charm peony bouquet. The bridesmaids carried all vodoo roses.
And after the simplicity of the bouquets, the centerpieces and buffet arrangements were full of color and movement and sweetness. They had brought us a case of empty coke bottles to fill with loose stems for the cocktail tables and buffets. Did they drink 36 bottles or pour them down the drain? I didn't dare to ask.
I am being served an incredible looking and smelling breakfast burrito here so it's time to run. She's fattening me up for our own private hunger games in the back yard.
90degrees here today.
