CITY BY THE BAY







WE JUST RETURNED LAST NIGHT FROM a WEEK'S VACATION IN SAN FRANCISCO...VISITING MY DAUGHTER ALI AND MY MOTHER IN LAW, ENJOYING THE SIGHTS AND ENERGY OF THE CITY BY THE BAY .

I HAVE NOT HAD A CHANCE TO VISIT YOUR BLOGS IN A WHILE, I APOLOGIZE AND REALIZED THAT THURSDAY, APRIL 9TH, WAS THE ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF MY BLOG.


WHAT A YEAR ITS BEEN. I HAVE NOTHING BUT POSITIVE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THE WHOLE BLOGGING EXPERIENCE... MEETING GREAT PEOPLE.. SHARING THINGS ABOUT MYSELF, AND DISCOVERING THERE ARE MANY WOMEN WHO ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT SOME OF THE SAME THINGS THAT I AM! I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE TO MEET ONE BLOGGING FRIEND, JANIE, AT PANINI GIRL....I HOPE TO MEET MORE OF YOU IN THE FUTURE.....HINT----SAN DIEGO IS A LOVELY PLACE TO VISIT.


I DO HAVE TO SHARE THOUGH I HAVE GAINED A FEW POUNDS BLOGGING, BUT NOW THAT SPRING IS HERE, I AM GOING TO GET OUT MORE AND EXERCISE, AND SIT ON THE COUCH LESS.!



THANK YOU ALL FOR THE SUGGESTIONS ON THE KITCHEN AID MIXER SITUATION. I AM BACK TO CHECKING OUT EBAY FOR DEALS!


I WISH EVERYONE A HAPPY EASTER.

Happy Easter to you and your loved ones, Linda. Congratulations on your one year anniversary of blogging. It has been wonderful getting to know you this way. Blogging is so great because otherwise we would have never known each other were 'out there'. I consider you a dear friend. Have a great day! Twyla

Happy belated anniversary!!! I'm so glad I got to "meet" you this first year of blogging for both of us. Isn't it a total trip?!

I hope you had a lovely vacation...I'm sure you did...and am pulling for you on the mixer. I bought one a couple of years ago with a 20% of "anything in the store" coupon which helped quite a bit. A friend of mine told me the mixer would change my life and I laughed at her. I'm not laughing anymore. :-)
