Everything’s Up To Date in Kansas City…

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!

Busy Pattern
Busy, busy, busy…

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.
