Well, the birthday celebrations are over for this year. It was a wonderful week of enjoying family and good friends. The part I liked best was going to the mailbox everyday and finding new cards! (I'm like a little kid over things like that!)
This week is truly promising to be a splendid one. No real big things until Thursday when my sister and I are meeting for lunch with the two girls we grew up with who lived across the street from our home.. They live out of state, so we always get together when they come "home" for a few weeks in summer. Our lunches are always roucous, for we laugh so hard and long from recalling many incidents from our childhood. There is something wonderful about sharing memories with those we were so intertwined with as children into adulthood. So.........if you happen to be eating at Stanford's on Thursday, stay away from the booths by the window if you are planning on a quiet lunch!!
Yesterday (Monday), I went to Main Street, USA (my little town with all the hanging baskets and old buildings) I went to the Post Office and bought stamps for 6 x 6 cards, stamps for overweight letters, stamps for post cards, and stamps for overseas mailing. It was quite a little expedition. Of course, I had to go to Craft Warehouse for a little look around at what is new--bought a little,
then ate lunch out with a book I am trying to finish. Came home and basked in the warmth of an 81 degree day. Finished my book out on the patio.
Today my five! cleaning ladies came (once a month). They attack my house like bandits. I hide in my office, and in one hour they are done!! Only one speaks English. They have the best time together. They laugh and giggle and of course, I can't understand a word they are saying. We smile and nod a lot together.
Tomorrow is hair day and Safeway delivery day. When I get a free coupon in the mail for free delivery from Safeway, then I do my shopping online. I love that!
In my spare time this week, I am making cards--I'm totally out of thank you cards, and birthday cards. These are from today. Not quite done with the pink cards--need a little more bling!
Also last night I made ravioli soup and a chicken and cornmeal casserole. I divided them up into Glad boxes and got them into the freezer for some supper meals. I just add a salad or a veggie and I am good to go!
Friday, the glass man is coming to check my patio doors. I can hardly open them anymore, and the grandkids can't manage them at all.
Its going to be a wonderful week. I loved Monday and today. I've also closed the doors on this cabinet!! We'll see how long they stay closed!!
I am still working on time management. I'll say "good-night" for now. I'm going to go out to the family room and look at the closed doors and READ!
