~ Twisted Cork/Jeannie ~ Lamplight/GloW ~ SOW Sistas ~

Good 43º morning. Was in the high 80ºs yesterday. Better.

Today is my special friend's birthday. Jeannie. We celebrated yesterday at the Twisted Cork
with the SOW Sistas. (Southern Oregon Winos).... I got there early and put out the decorations..

Then went shopping next door at the Lamplight, corner of 6th and G Streets.
My friend, GloW has her jewelry in the store ... Some really pretty things.

 I bought a ring she made, red white and blue!

Had a nice chat with one of the new owners of the shop, Jan. She's from San Diego. Really nice! LOL, apparently the other owner is also a Jan. Can't forget their names!!!

The girls arrived at Twisted Cork and we all enjoyed some wine, except Nancy who had a beer with a citrus taste. REALLY good!
Candy, Donna, Nancy, me, Dee, Jeannie, and Jennifer.

Jeannie had this flatbread that was reallllly good...

And I had the warm brie with strawberries and balsamic...

A sorbet with candle was brought out for the birthday girl...

The wine was good, mine was Chehalem Inox Chardonnay. From the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Good!

Winemaker's Notes: Brilliant white-gold clarity of color, freshness and fruit running the length of the wine, aromas accented with shortbread, vanilla nougat, orange blossom and white pepper. The palate is as complementary as the nose, showing juicy, lingering acid, Asian pear, lemon curd, white peach, and green tea. Ripe, refreshing, and totally thirst-quenching.


Historically this date..

(The above was like my mom's White Sewing Machine. LOL, Jeannie... same as your maiden name!!!)

Sewing Machine Day celebrates a very important invention ----- the sewing machine. The first sewing machines were made in France in the 1830s. It wasn't until 1846, that they were patented in the U.S. What a great invention. Prior to it's creation, clothes items were sewn together by hand...stitch by stitch.
People who know how to use a sewing machine are dwindling in number. Our mothers and grandmothers had a sewing machine in the house. They used it, too. But, look around your house. Do you have a sewing machine? Chance are, the answers is no.
If you have a sewing machine, enjoy today making things with it. If not, consider picking up sewing as a hobby. 
Today's Thought Provoking Saying:
"A stitch in time saves nine."  
...Saves nine "what"?
