I want to take a moment to thank all those who served, past and present. This is my grandfather, Gerald who was a medic in the Pacific Theater in World War II. Love you Pappy! Thanks for your sacrifice!
Friday night I went to happy hour with friends. We had a blast and it was very cathartic. Apparently it was just what I needed to feel better. You know the girl-rule about how you must always get two shots to make sure everyone is happy? Well, this is the other photo the guy at the bar took.
I was laughing so hard when I saw it. Nothing much to see...so it's funny.
This has been my drink of choice all month.
Saturday was look like crap and clean some here day.
Including dusting and adding my newest bobblehead to the collection.
Nolan and Nolan.
Later I made guacamole, salsa and this cupcake:
Sunday I cleaned the dining room & refinished the two new cabinets my parents gave me. They are a little lighter than my hutch but I like that. This is what I was working on when T called from the road.
This man is so sweet. I don't know what I did to deserve him in my life. He texts me in the morning just to wish me a good day and he called me while he was driving through Terre Haute, Indiana on the way to New Jersey. Did I tell y'all we are both originally from Indiana? Anyway, he called just to hear me talk. He listened to me go on about nothing (not even baseball) and when I laughed and asked if he was bored he said nope, he was listening to me and actually repeated what I was telling him. It's a new relationship and before I get 32 text messages from my friends, we are taking it as slow. Him being out of town days at a time working kind of forces us to slow down. That said....I miss his big brown eyes.
My beast of a nephew caught this Monday. Ten pounds! Wow! He is 12 and brought that fish in fighting the whole way!
I fixed the missing pieces in my kitchen floor (lifting the stove because I am a beast too) and cleaned the kitchen. Later it was time to relax with some frozen wine.
I finished a book between Sunday and Monday and aside from a lot of cleaning...mostly watched NCIS and baseball. I know...I am a wild woman.
So how was your holiday and what special stuff did you do?
