On Friday a.m. I photographed the pile of books I left on my recliner the night prior. I'd read "Simply Tuesday" book Thurs after our Bible study that Phil and I had together. I wanted to finish a chapter before I headed for bed. Little did I realize how tired I was. I fell asleep for half an hour. Then I really had to make myself finish the chapter prior to my real night sleep! That's what a tired feet in a 4 day work week does to me lately.
That morning as I was cleaning the last of our son's hen eggs, I realized these would be the last of them. They decided to get rid of them due various reasons. So friends have them now and their back lawn will be a larger space for the grandchildren to roam. It was a good learning adventure for the children and their parents. I'm gonna miss those eggs!
They are taste much better than store bought eggs. I've been picky lately and try to get cage free eggs, which is my preference. I used some in cookies I baked today for Megan's graduation party that's coming up. Megan hard boiled a couple so she'd have them for breakfast.
Megan shows off grad party signs I bought at Dollar Tree just this week. It will help mark our house where the party will be!! I also pre-ordered a balloon bouquet in which I will pick up morning of the party.
Necklace was one my mom used to wear. At times I will wear it. Other days when I want to wear it, I can't bring myself to wear it, due to sadness. Still hard to not have her here to visit occasionally. It will be two years this July since she died.
This afternoon I drove over town to the hardware store. No, not in this car, but I saw it drive into the parking lot when I got there. I'd seen it while I was at work, this time I was able to photograph it, since I wasn't working. It's a Polaris. The driver wears a helmet. I had to get another hose to hook with a 50 ft. hose I'd purchased a couple weeks ago. One isn't enough to reach the tomato area in our lawn. So I bought another 50 ft. hose and 2 pc nozzle set. All on sale. Shopping for hoses isn't fun especially when what I want isn't on sale. A 25 ft. hose, with my discount, is almost as much as the 50 ft. hose that's on sale. 75 ft. hose not on sale. Sigh! By Monday the tomatoes will be planted. My days aren't long enough!
A couple weeks ago we went to Olive Garden late Sat. for a surprise birthday party for Eric. He's the third person on your right. His wife, JoAnn, who is right behind him, secretly asked friends to come. He was surprised when they got there. I was a bit bummed as we didn't make it til a bit later. Still he was happy to see us. His two grandkids were at the other table with a couple adult cousins. Quite a few of us go to the same church, which was even more fun.
Here's Phil and I with Dan and Loreta. He's a Marine and so was the man in the hat who sat beside me. They exchanged stories and it was fun to hear.
A few months back I went to a Wine and Canvas Paint nite. I was supposed to go with a co-worker, but she got sick. So I called around and was able to have a friend go with me. I picked Cleo up and we went into Silverton. We had a good night. I am finally liking my painting. I'm still not quite sure of painting. I'd rather be a photographer any day! I went to one with Phil before Christmas which was fun. That's the end of my photo stories for this day.
Hope your 3 day weekend is good and safe.
Remembering our freedom isn't free, thanks to those veterans of our military
for giving their all for our country. God bless their families as well.
God bless you, my friends.
God Bless America!
