Did anyone else go to the Mennonite Central Committee Relief Sale this weekend?
I 've had people tell me they've never been.
I love it all.
The crazy busy line up for the Wareneki. . .
the hoards of people ..
the taps on the shoulder from people I now know. .
and running into the same people every year that we see way too seldom.
I made my way over to the Ten Thousand Villages booth and asked if any of the Langley staff was there.
They sponsor Mennonite Girls Can Cook every month to feed hungry kids.
I was so thrilled to meet Olga the manager of that store and another staff member.
Isn't it nice to be able to put a face to an email?
I was delighted and they were so nice.
Did you all eat the Borscht?
My Auntie Betty helped to make it.
A very long day and yet she still was smiling and enjoying the sale.
Every year we run into someone we can invite over for coffee after.
This year it was Judy and Elmer.
They still had food tickets left and so they bought a bag of Portzelky and we taste tested them at our house with a cup of hot coffee.
They were excellent.
Yesterday was family day.
We invited everyone over for Chinese Food.
Mom picked it up. .
and it became her treat along with the Perishky she baked.
Over all. .
it was a memorable weekend.
I can honestly say. . I'll remember it as long as I live.
Maybe one day. .
I'll tell you the rest of the story.
All for now. .
