Saturday in Atwater
It was a rainy Saturday in L.A. Our driveway definitely reflects the fall weather! I drove to Atwater Village on Saturday morning and met up with Mary Jo for our ukulele group meeting, The Pluckin' Strummers. I do like this group. They meet twice a month. I have other knit and/or crochet obligations though and can only meet up once a month. It's a diverse group....all ages, which I like.

We play tunes from the "Daily Ukulele" song book in addition to other music that people share. On Saturday I brought along copies of "Jingle Bell Rock" to share. It was fun getting up in front of the group to lead the song.

After uke group, Mary Jo and I drove a few blocks to the Bauer Warehouse Holiday Sale. The warehouse is on a dreary, industrial alley. It's gray on the outside, but when you open the doors to the showroom, you are bombarded with beautiful Bauer and Russell Wright color! I do believe this is the happiest place on earth.
We ran into a few friends, Tom and Claire, along with Rene. We both purchased gifts. The sale continues for the next few weekends. 20% off!

There was a food truck outside the warehouse, the Pineapple Express. We had planned to eat lunch here, but it started raining. Instead, we went to Indochine for a nice, warm, soothing bowl of pho! Thanks, Mary Jo! It was a good Saturday!
