Farewell Lunch for Lynne Copping

Yesterday was such a busy and fun day! I woke up and got the kids up. I did a couple of loads of laundry and got my Perspective quilt out of the dryer to get ready for the monthly Muscat Quilt Guild meeting. I had Ali hold it for me outside in good light. You can refer to my previous post for all that. I then took the kids to school and went grocery shopping. Came home, marinated some chicken and did other stuff around the house and got ready for the meeting. I was late and Alice saved me a seat, thanks Alice! We had the meeting and then we all met up at the Al Bustan Palace Hotel's Beach Pavilion Restaurant to have our farewell lunch for the sweetest woman, Lynne Copping. We will miss you! This group of friends are from my Book Club. I have known most of them in one way or another and it was so very nice to be able to go out and I was facing the beach and the waiter opened the door so it was beautiful. We are:

Left side from back to front: Alice (US); me (US); Jo (UK); Kathy (UK); Judy (OZ);
Right side from back to front: Glynnis (UK); Georgia (RSA); Pam (UK); Lynne (UK); and Lindsay (CANADA).
This is such a lovely group of women and I am new to the Book Club and they have welcomed me so nicely. Oooh, I better make some time to read our next selection. We are meeting on the 1st. If you don't see me for a while, it'll be because of that and Eid al Adha will be on Friday so we will all be busy celebrating and traveling and the like. Thanksgiving is Thursday and New Moon opens on Thursday!! Gosh, I'm soooooooo excited for that! Plus, more beach trips and the kids are off starting Thursday until the 2nd of December! Whew! All this and I have to clean the house and cook and my hubby is coming home from being in Dubai for a few days. Busy days for us all! A big, huge, thank you to my friend Larissa for picking up the kids from school and keeping them until I was able to get them! Muuuaaahhhh!!

Thanks for stopping by and come back soon!
