Yesterday, a group of us from the patent office went out to lunch at Clyde’s (Tower Oak Lodge). Vickey’s mother-in-law loves to give gift certificates to restaurants as Christmas presents, so this is us spending that gift certificate. As Vickey notes, the venue was beautiful, but the food was mostly average, but satisfying. The three other women have December birthdays (Karuna & Satya), so they all got dessert for free! We haven’t all been together since before the pandemic.
Vickey’s mom (my quilting coach) was taking a class to make this enormous king sized quilt. Of course, she was more qualified than the teacher and might have taken over teaching the class herself. But because I’m the only person with a king sized bed that Vickey knows (!), I got this incredible handmade quilt which I will use everyday!
