Sunday dawned gray, foggy, damp and cold (barely 40 deg.)! But, meeting friends for one of our local Sunday breakfasts was a treat - not to mention yummy sausage patties, country ham, and omelette to order - cooked by the gentlemen of our local conservation club. Yes, I said gentlemen! That's actually one of the reasons I like to go - to watch the guys flip the omelettes up in the air and catch them in the pan - they are pretty good at it!
Anyway - following breakfast - with a surprise appearance from one of our other friends - I bundled up and read through art mags until it was time to leave for the Woman's Art Club opening. I barely noticed that it was getting brighter outside, but when I went upstairs to change clothes I noticed how sunny it was getting - and how warm!
Turned out to be a beautiful day - sunny and warm (75 deg) after beginning with that awful start - as though April 1 really was saying "April Fool's, you thought it was going to be a yukky day but . . . GOTCHA!"
So . . . it also turned out to be a great day for an art opening! The Woman's Art Club of Cincinnati show opened from 1-4 (see my sidebar for more info) and I, along with many others, attended the opening.
I had just stepped inside the door when a cohort from the Cincinnati Art Club grabbed me for a chat; then on my way to the ladies room (my first stop on any formal occasion!!!) I was stopped again by another friend, her husband, and my good friend Rhonda and her husband Jerry Carpenter!
I finally got a chance to walk around and take a few photos before I left.
