Saturday:) Sights, Sounds, and St. Gabriel’s Holiday Boutique.

“Set your sights high, the higher the better. Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now. Realize that nothing is too good. Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you or hold you up in any way.”

~Eileen Caddy


A beautiful Saturday, cool, breezy, sunny, morning. I took little Bella for a walk. She loves the cool weather, and prances like a pup on these days.

We walk around the pond, and sometimes we see the horses across the street.

Later in the afternoon, I went over to the St. Gabriel Holiday Boutique. Before going in, the Knight of Columbus men were selling tamales as their fundraiser. I said I’d get a dozen on the way out, but they said they only had seven dozen left out of the 180 they started with. Naturally, I grabbed one quick. Inside, I checked out to the women’s Club bake sale. Wow! It was only 2 pm, and they were almost sold out. As I was looking at the cakes and pies, a man was purchasing a container of brownies. As he took out his $15, I chimed in, ” Wow, I hear those are fantastic brownies!” The lady behind the table said, “Did you bake these?” I told her I had, and they were fantastic. We all smiled. I think all the containers I took over got sold quickly.

There were a lot of wonderful crafters and vendors there. I ran into Miss Bonita right away, and she said it was crazy busy all day. The best part was bumping into friends.

When I got home, I got a call from my sister. We chatted a while, then I went for another walk. The clouds started rolling in and the wind kicked up. Mr. Larry and Miss Sandy were sitting in their garage, so of course, I had to stop for a beer and catch up on neighborhood gossip and political mayhem. It’s been a long time since my last visit.

A good Saturday with so many blessings, so many friends and wonderful sights and sounds.
