Had a great time at the Press Democrat/Sonoa County “Women In Conversation” event at the Sonoma State Campus, compliments of my friend Linda H. who gave me two tickets for the 3:30-6:30 Experience. My favorite was Clo’s company, Clover Dairy, who gave me TWO free bowls of coffee ice cream — a new flavor for them.
My friend Joyce R. took this picture of Clo in her denim dress. Many of the women in attendance were wearing beautiful dresses and shoes. The women motivational speakers were wonderful, including the sensational yoga teacher, Trish Pascual. We had chicken-finger sandwiches, shrimp with mango salsa, small batch chocolate, cold-press coffee, hibiscus tea and some amazing gazpacho from Ramekins.
There were doctors offering free blood pressure tests, interesting to Joyce whose husband is in skilled nursing for a few more days, recovering from double-bypass surgery and the installation of two new pig-valves in his heart. We were gratified to learn there are several post-op services specializing in long-term heart wellness after surgery.
