On Sunday I went to Williams-Sonoma for the stew cooking class. It was informative, fun and relaxing to get out of the country for a day.

After Monday's rain the weather was beautiful. I planted the plants I got at the Butte College annual Fall plant sale.

I'm hosting a Stampin Up party in November. I bought stamps years ago from this company. The demonstrator, Alex, is charming. I just met her and it felt like we were just old friends.

I'll just rename the list "Do What I Want To Do" list.
