On one of our recent trips to Missouri, we spent some time in the Kansas City area. Such a beautiful city. One of my favorite moments was the Hubby got us a chauffeured limo service to take a tour of the city and to take us to dinner. My husband’s great-grandparents were immigrants from Austria and lived and worked in Kansas City in an area of Czech immigrants known as Strawberry Hill. His great-grandfather was a butcher in that neighborhood, and so we had the Driver take us to Strawberry Hill and we got to go to a “famous” meat shop (Krizman’s – I think) to sample some of their sausages. It was a pretty neat experience. We ended up down at The Plaza for dinner at a Brazilian Steakhouse that I can’t remember the name of! SO GOOD. Anyhow, I do remember the name of the wonderful company that carted us around all day – Overland Park Limo Service – very knowledgable and nice people!
While visiting that wonderful town on our get-away, I got to spend some time perusing thru some locally owned craft and needlework shops looking for new projects to take on.
I did find some interesting ideas, but nothing worth spending my money on. Anymore, I enjoy the simplistic. So many patterns are so comprehensive (not the word I’m looking for) – just so much going on… I guess what I mean is that they are so BUSY. That’s it. That’s the right word!
So, unproductive in buying anything, but productive in sparking some new ideas. If I ever get around to developing them, I just might have to show them on here!
Well, nothing new in my life at the moment, but things are good. I’m happy with life, and I think that that is important.
I’ll share more tomorrow.
