It's A Scrapbooking Kind Of Day

The weather was okay,  but the cloudy sky made me feel like staying inside and doing some scrapbooking. 
So I finished a book I was making for Jordon.  He is moving from Sitka this fall and I didn't want him to forget us!  It's made out of a "Sorry" game board.

Then I added some more clippings to my police blotter scrapbook....

I've been saving them for years and there are some real winners in here!

Yes, that's me, jumping on the bed in Mazatlan Mexico!

I had a couple of customers, just enough.  Then this evening Mr. Adams and I went to dinner at my absolute favorite restaurant....Ludvigs.  One of our clients this Spring gave us a gift certificate there!  Wasn't that nice?

Ludvigs is just a tiny little restaurant that holds 25 people at the most...

Their food is intensely flavored and beautifully presented...

I had the lamb chops.......heaven!

Mr. Adams had the steak...

And for dessert of course I had the creme brulee...

And Mr. Adams had the cheesecake with chocolate mousse/pistachio topping...

It was so delicious!  I wish every meal I made tasted this good...wouldn't that be great?
