Sunny and Grace had a special evening at the first Chick-fil-a Father-Daughter dinner. A section of the food court in the mall was sectioned off. The waiters wore tuxedos and escorted them to their table, after giving each girl a yellow rose. They ate a Chick-fil-a sandwich with choice of waffle fries or salad. (Grace's waiter was pleasantly surprised that she ordered salad.) For dessert they were each given a giant chocolate-covered strawberry. They dined to Disney music performed by a professional violinist. Then before the evening was over their picture was taken. Sunny and Grace both enjoyed their 'date'.
I ate alone
reading a book
in the truck
in the parking lot of the mall
because I wasn't invited
I have been enjoying, as usual, my thrift shopping, finding some great bargains that I'll be using in my crafting projects.
Does anyone else love old, vintage patterns?
I had a goal of getting to my forever weight by mid-June. I don't think I'm going to make it, but I have lost a couple more pounds.
Only eight to go
Sunny passed his Mec4 test. Yay! Now he is studying for his plumbing license with the goal of taking the test in July.
One step at a time
Grace will be nine years old next Tuesday. Yesterday, I mentioned to her that "today was my due date, but you decided to come eight days late". She asked me how I knew when I was pregnant. I told her I took a pregnancy test. She says, "Oh ya, that's where you pee on a stick."
Moving right along...
Chelsie is doing well up in Seattle getting settled in her new home she's sharing with three other gals.
Learning to get along with others is a life long experience, isn't it?
I look forward to getting around again and visiting you all.
You've been missed
I'm still working on my Etsy store as well as a new blog with my artsy-fartsy ideas. Just trying out different avenues.
No, this blog isn't going to turn into a constant sales pitch
Myrtle loves to have her hiney scratched. When she's done on one side, she gets up and comes back around for the other side.
The Brownie troop Grace is involved in had a field trip to a sports facility that includes foam pits, bungie cords, and trampolines. They also enjoyed a nice pizza dinner in one of the party rooms. This was one of the rewards for their cookie sales proceedings.
The sanitarious-ness (yes, I know that's not a word) of the foam made me a little nervous, but I didn't allow my imagination to get the best of me.
And Grace got a nice, hot bath when we got home
Oh, and HE went back to Oregon for good!
((Love you, Chels!))
