Well THAT Was Fun!

This past weekend I was away to my annual Woman's retreat,at a wonderful guest ranch in the mountains. . It is a whole weekend filled with fiber, laughs, and meeting new friends.
Friday night was our meet and greet, we had supper at the lodges restaurant. I had roasted carrot with squash   soup as my appatizer. YUMMY! for supper I had the chicken nachos. YUM Again!  then we headed up to the cabin to get unpacked and prepare for the morning.

(we stayed up chatting with the other ladies,relaxing in the hot tub on the deck. Then off to bed for a early morning.
Saturday we awoke to a wonderful champane breakfast, filled with homemade biscuits,homemade jams and jellies, (a new one I have never tried before) Cucumber jelly. YUM!!! again. We also had wonderful warm and yummy apple spice muffins. (Do you notice how many times I have said both YUM and wonderful in this conversation.) It is so true.

After our bellies were filled we headed into fiber mode. There was a lady named kate who was running this,who took time and demoed a lot of new and helpful things. She was amazing and I learned so much from her.

Kate really was amazing

It was a great morning with her teaching loads of new ideas. For lunch they served chicken wraps, leftover roasted carrot with squash soup. A lovely warmed apple crisp for dessert.
After a long day of crafting with fiber by spinning,felting,carding, and seeing the latest gadgets, we ended with a delicious supper of chicken parmesan served over bettered herb penne. For dessert chocolate cake.
Sunday we awoke to blueberry muffins and coffee and tided up and packed. At 11 we headed down to the restaurant once again to finish our great weekend with a brunch that was to die for. Ham,turkeys. apple crisp french toast,and so much more yummy things.
We then said our good byes and headed back to reality.
What a great weekend and I can't wait till next year.
