Back to the Real World

We're back! It was a lovely trip, it was so good to see all our friends and to meet some really terrific newbies to Nana Sadie Rose. The show was good in all respects, there was no hurricane (I think I shall always measure National Capital Cat Show against our worst year, 2008, when Hurricane Hanna roared up the coast and practically rained on our parade!), and while you can tell people are being a bit cautious, it was obvious that many folks were still going to make sure they had their dose of cat-related paraphenalia!

Brother-in-law surprised us mid-afternoon on Saturday, by driving over to see the booth and the show. We had the presence of mind to ask him to get a snapshot of the three sisters!

I don't think we've ever been able to get all of us in the photo at once, and this one is really special because of that. Left to right, that's Sis-in-law, me, and Big Sis.

We got in late evening last night, the car was unpacked (most of it still sits in the living room, of course, tho' the booth architecture was stored at Sis-in-law's as usual).

And in spite of not bothering much with following Weight Watchers eating, I managed to only gain 8/10th of a pound which is surely a function of how much exercise we get while we're putting up the booth, running around the Dulles Expo Center, and taking the booth back down in a matter of 3 days.

I'm not complaining!

And now, the countdown to NoSoKnit begins - yes, Nana Sadie Rose will have a booth there, too! (I know...crazy as a loon, I am...)

Congratulations on a good show. I'm sure the kids are glad you are home. And I'm glad to hear it went well.

I was coming by to see how the show turned out and am glad to hear your report. I have to say that this year's 'booth uniform' has got to be the most flattering yet ... you look great!

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.
