We Have A Winner!

This has already been an action packed weekend! Last night dear SIL and I ventured to the "distant" (LOLOL!) town of Salem, VA to enjoy the Roanoke Symphony's Pops Concert with Aaron Neville and had a terrific time, first eating at a popular local restaurant, Mac and Bob's. Jazz and R&B are in our blood, as my late brother was the founder of his own jazz trio popular in our area for many years and he was instrumental in starting our annual Jazz Festival, as well. So it really was a great evening. (This week marked the 5th anniversary of my brother's death, so it was especially important to mark it this way.) edited to add...did I mention I won the tickets to the concert?

Then today, we spent a few hours celebrating the 125th anniversary of Roanoke, the "Star City of the South" and my hometown. Today also marked the opening of the long-awaited new Exhibition Hall at the Roanoke Civic Center. I'm going to put photos on my other blog - Nana Sadie's Place as I think it's probably better to go on and on about such things there!

But before we headed out this morning, I asked Dear SIL to "do the honors" and draw a name from the (as it turns out) mixing bowl! And the winner of the new, not quite ready to be photoed, Posy Sock Sack is....(drumroll, please...)

LANA! I will email you, Lana, but if you don't get it (because it's possible my email for you is an old one) PLEASE email me at siameezercat gmail com (with the AT and DOT in the proper places...)

And The Meezer thanks everyone for their wonderful descriptions of her...she enjoyed having them read to her!

And the rest of my day was spent completing the last bag orders from the Star City Cat Fanciers Show in January - yes, it's taken me an embarrassingly long 9 weeks to finish them (tho' I did warn folks that it would be longer due to my move - which ended up taking over a month in total, of course, I'm STILL not completely unpacked or decorated yet...!). I'm ecstatic to have them finished!

The Meezer is excited...

This is my first time on this new cutting board of hers. It's nice and stable. Do you think, if I drape myself over it, she'll forget all about this Nana Sadie Rose bag business?

What a wonderful time you've had the last few days! I love Aaron Neville.
It is certainly a wonderful way to commemorate your brother.

Congrats to Lana!

I can't wait to see your new bag!

Free tickets to see Aaron Neville! Too cool! I see him any time he comes up this way.

My old boyfriend was from Roanoke. I even visited there once. It's a beautiful area.

So glad you got to go to that concert! I have been a fan of Aaron Neville's for years... and you won the tickets too. You deserve some fun before getting swamped in bag-making once again.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
