OMs AGAIN!

Yesterday, being Mah Jongg Wednesday for the OMs, we met once again at K’s home. And, as always, Roxie was so happy to see all of us.

We played a quick  game – which I didn’t win and was going crazy trying to put a hand together. At first I was trying to play a Winds hand and then I switched over to the FFFF 1111 9999 DD hand. But with no Jokers and a quick winner sitting next to me, I had no chance. I do think that being able to switch hands is key to being a good Mah Jongg player. J has always been great at changing hands and I am really working on this skill. IMG_1578And then lunch was served. K never disappoints – lunch was delish, starting with a yummy gazpacho served in the cutest new bowls:IMG_1579Don’t you love those bowls?! Next was a wonderful chicken salad plus my favorite – tomato and avocado salad with blue cheese:IMG_1580
