Purple potatoes, purple beans and water

(September 3, 2013)

We had a good turnout at the bee today. Donna was back for a chat fresh from her West Coast Trail adventure. We missed Rene – she (and her lost transmission) are stuck near Kamloops for a few more days. Sandra Tuba stopped by; she is healing nicely from her recent wrist surgery. Darlene has her house on the market. We don’t wish her bad luck but we don’t want to see her go either. Suzanne stopped in briefly; we’re looking forward to seeing what she has in store for our Guild Challenge this year.


This one is all flannel

 Darlene brought in these two beautiful Community Quilts.

Purple potatoes and purple beans were on the discussion menu at lunch. Don’t ask Sharon to do potatoes for you – she admits they don’t cooperate with her either for growing or cooking. Barb says purple potatoes are over-rated, and Cathie tells us the colour comes out of purple beans when the are cooked. What’s next? Purple carrots – apparently there is such a thing.

With Cathie heading off on her Italy trip perhaps it wasn’t the right time to be discussing water issues in our homes. Apparently building codes have changed so that hot water tanks now need to have a draining system. We all liked Barb’s “trailer trash” idea of drilling a hole in the floor to the outside!

We missed Gail and her raunchy stories. Although we had another good laugh when, at one point, Barb grabbed Gwen’s shirt. Gwen was quick to reply, “I’m not Gail!”

Don’t forget about the Guild business meeting on Thursday. Next Tuesday is the start of the Soup and Sandwich day at the Centre so we will be meet at the Blue Mountain clubhouse.
