Friday night, I stopped by a friend’s house that was doing a craft fair in her garage. Saw some peoples and had me a bit of fun. Then I went home and did some supper and Star Trek. I’m really liking voyager. They really added some humor to it.
Saturday morning I get a text. “good morning how are you my name is brian we met at g’ma’s funeral jan gave me your phone number”
Hmmmmmmmmmmm yes, I remembered this guy. Hit on me at Gramma Grape’s funeral. Made me laugh and I enjoyed talking with him. I was dating Ken at the time so no, he didn’t get my # then.
We had 389 messages by the time we finished Saturday. And a date for Sunday morning breakfast.
We had decided on meeting at 8am. Thing is? The place doesn’t open till 9am. I’ll remember to check next time. I got up at 7am after Saturday night of 2 Grinch Grogs and a glass of Riesling.
So we sat in the parking lot talking for a bit til Wing Dam opened. While we were talking he says to me “I have something for you.” From the back seat of his almost new Cadillac Escalade, he gives me a ‘Christmas Tree’ Little Debbie cake, a chunk of wood for my wood stove, and these flowers:
OMG they smell so GOOD…..I just smiled….and thanked him….and inhaled deeply!
We had a fun time having breakfast. We talked from 8:30am till 11am when I had to go because Daddy was working and Mommy had to go to work at 12 so I had my little short stack all afternoon.
We talked of so many things. It was just a pleasant morning.
I dragged that green trunk up from the basement. It was one of those I got from my parents house when they were moving.
This photo didn’t turn out worth a tinkers damm. But it does show what I did and the more I look at it, the more I love it.
Under those photos, in boxes, I have all these magazines that Nick collected. I cannot bring myself to just throw them all away. So I went through all that stuff, threw out the catalogs and kept the magazines. Super Ford, Fast Fords, Car and Driver…..HUNDREDS of magazines. Then I went through them all again with a black magic marker and obliterated the address label. I’d already sent 2 big boxes to Operation Homefront to include with care packages. One would hope the troops would like something to read. The rest of those boxes were stack behind that green chair along that wall and it looked horrid. So I dragged that trunk upstairs and put all the boxes inside. I love it. Looks SO much nicer. All the photos are of my g’kids. You can see my flowers from Brian on the trunk.
See the photo just above the flowers? My favorite one of me. Kevin took that one. I gave it to my daddy for Christmas but since they downsized to a small 2 bedroom apartment, he gave it back to me. I love it.
Brian and I talked at lunch today. We have a date to walk through the Rotary Lights tonight. Rotary Lights
Click on that link for a virtual tour. There are 4 million lights and I think it is beautiful. We walked through it last year with Marghe. Froze our BUTTS off. OMG it was cold! But it’s pretty neat as you can see from the link above.
We are also going for supper. I think Diggers is a good place. They have a shrimp appetizer that ….yum……I love. Brian just text me “cheese wine sausage chocolate” A picnic? Really? It’s 18* out there!!!
He cracks me up.
I have a supper date tomorrow night with a lady that wants me to make a full sized crocheted blanket for her for next August. Wednesday afternoon Ladies Night Ladies are going to BRF for the afternoon. Thurs and Friday are open right now. Saturday, Brian and I are going to a retirement party. Sunday I think I am going up to the folks for Church and I’ll take them out to lunch. I also need to spend a day finishing up Christmas shopping. Hopefully I can get a bunch done on Wednesday in BRF.
