The unofficial theme of my party was Julie/Julia Project. I loved that movie and desperately wanted my own copy of it. I think my people got the drift and hints... Ivy gifted me that DVD starring Amy Adams and Meryl Streep and my Sister Donna gave me the book My Life In France by Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme. Just in time because I was without a new book for about a week.

At the party, our new pup met Poonie for the first time. It went well. I think Poonie thought he was a bit much.
I wasn't expecting the pup to be petrified of our tiny guests, Harley and Liliana. He had to be put to bed early for anti-social behavior.

We spent the evening looking at knitting magazines.
Thank you Ritchie and Megan for the bottle of Merlot and Len for the comfy deck chair. A special thank you to Tracey for driving all that way to give me orange jewelry and a hug.
