I closed up shop at about 2h50 as the veranda had become very quiet. I'd also done excellent sales yesterday and felt I could take a break!
It was a very small and intimate little group of friends.
Jo (moi), Ann, Lily, Marelize (birthday girl) and Doreen
Ironically we were all wearing shades of blue!
I'm linking to Our World Tuesday here
Jo! You shaved your head! I'm surprised because it's your winter. It was nice you had an intimate party for your friend. xxReplyDelete
It sounds, and looks, like a perfect way to celebrate. To celebrate birthdays and friendship.ReplyDelete
here is the USA blue is the in color this year, every store is full of all shades of blue in clothing and in linens... glad you got to have a break with friends.ReplyDelete
Hello, lovely group of ladies. Happy Birthday to Marelize! Have a great day!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful week!
Good to get together with friends!ReplyDelete
Here I go again, Jo. My comments keep escaping me. O well, I was saying something frivolous about your hair or lack thereof. You're looking good, my dear friend. I'm so glad you are keeping active, and never far from those who love you. Hugs from here.ReplyDelete

Lovely gathering of beautiful ladies. New hair cut?ReplyDelete
Hello Jo, lovely that you stopped by today. I'm going to try to get added to your Follower list that way I know when you post here. I feel I'm missing a lot - such as the royal wedding being celebrated far away in SA, and seeing you in a fascinator, so adorable! My mum grew up in Windsor as her dad was in the Coldstream Guards and attached to the castle - I LOVE Windsor and thought it was a perfect setting for the beautiful wedding. . . . . . even the English weather cooperated for a change!ReplyDelete
Your girlfriends here look so great - I know you must have a fun time together. Glad to know you are managing without Grant to help you - stay strong, I'm sure he is looking out for you from a better place.
I noticed your buzzed hair too - and being so pretty you wear it well! I would like to go to my natural color now - which of course is grey - and my hairdresser says the best way would be to shave my head and let it grow back grey (but I'd have to wear a wig!) as bleaching out the red/brunette color would ruin my hair anyway! Not sure I can do that yet - but it's a thought.
Here in North Carolina is hot, wet and humid, a really unusual May for our region. Tonight I watched an amazing National Geographic nature program about saving the giraffes in Namibia. I wish I could return to Africa one more time - seeing the landscape and animals on the screen took me back to my past wonderful visits.
Stay well dear - hugs, Mary
Good friends are the best ✨ReplyDelete
That,s always fun to get together for a coffee and cake ! what happened to your hair ?? I first thought you were bald ! Got a shock because one of my friends lost her hair but because of cancer !ReplyDelete
