Busy Weekend

I hope you had a nice Easter. For me it was a busy weekend. First I found out that I won a contest held by Michelle on her blog Boulderneigh. Be sure to check out her blog, it is one of my favorites and I've been reading it for a long time. Anyway, Michelle is a shepherdess and held a contest on how many new lambs would be born at Boulderneigh this spring and the number of rams and ewes and how many would be gulmogets. (It's OK I didn't know what gulmogets were either until I read Michelle's blog). You need to check out the pictures Michelle has of the new babies on the blog. I can't believe I won.

Saturday was opening day of the Issaquah Farmers Market. It was a rainy day yet it attracted a large crowd. Since this was the first day and with the winter weather having been so bad this year, the farmers didn't have much in the way of produce but did have some flowers to sell. There were quite a few crafts people there but still a smaller number than in past opening days. I think the weather combined with the slow economy, convinced some to stay home.

Sunday started with Mass at 7 AM. Then I was invited out for lunch by my brother-in-law because my husband had to work. Brunch was at Muckleshoot Casino. Muckleshoot is my favorite casino but I'm not crazy about their restaurant that had the brunch. The Tulalip Casino has a much nicer brunch. So, we had brunch and gambled a little and it was a fun day.

Today and every Monday I go to my Driftwood Art class. I will do a post soon on driftwood art. So, it has been a tiring but enjoyable weekend.
