Hal made it home safe and sound and we've been snacking on cheese and grapes and relaxing in front of the television. I'm sleepy now.
It has been a fairly good day although the night before was horrible. My right hand felt like it was on fire and made it almost impossible to sleep. As a result I've tried to keep things low key today and not overdo so my hand will heal. At least the house is tidy.
I enjoyed a delicious meal at Rail City Bistro with Mom and Tim. The Italian wedding soup and Caprese salad were fabulous.
Went grocery shopping with Mom in the afternoon. I was able to pick up quite a few specials, price matches and use some bigger coupons . . . only to have the cashier (at RCSS) tell me, not once but twice, that I have too much time on my hands. Rude, or what? Oh well, I'll cry all the way to the bank with the money I save.
Tomorrow and Sunday should be fun. Supper out with Hal. Guess where we will be going? I have to try the gnocchi and tiramisu yet. I have heard high praise for both. Even Cameron posted a review on his FB page today. Of course, if you had ever tried one of Jared's death-by-chocolate-brownies, you would understand why . . . LOL.
Sunday we'll be going to the matinee of Ned Durango at the Princess Ave. Theatre with Krissy and her parents.
I guess I better get my beauty sleep. It is going to be a busy weekend. Good night dear friends.
I have had a busy day today. I had to pack up all my projects, clean the apartment and help pack up Hal and send him off to work. Ran a couple of quick errands. Finished up some last minute housework and cooked a delicious supper.
And then the fun began. Sketch Club!!! I only got 1 two-page layout done tonight but I sure had fun trying. Lots of visiting and story telling going on. Key lime pie and coconut cream pie for dessert. Just an excellent evening. Thanks so much to everyone who came to play tonight.
Received an awesome gift from Deb that she found while she was in Disney. Maybe someone will take a photo of me in it tomorrow so I can share. It is sooooooooo me!
I'm going to watch a little TV, relax a bit and then hit the hay. Sorry I didn't get the recipes from yesterday posted. Hopefully I'll have a little more time tomorrow.
I spent the morning grocery shopping with Nanna. I guess she has her stamina back because we went through 3 stores this week. While we were at Freshco we enjoyed watching the kids at the new skate park.
I have given Nanna a new addiction . . . veggie chips. That was the first thing she grabbed when we walked into Freshco. And I got her to believe that Bran Flakes taste identical to Raisin Bran except it is $3 cheaper and she no longer has to pick out the raisins.
A quiet afternoon and evening at home with Hal. I actually did some cooking today . . . lunch and supper. Both recipes are excellent and I'll be posting them tomorrow if I get the chance. Tomorrow is going to be a little busy since I have to pack away some projects to make way for Sketch Club!!! Yep, we are back after our summer hiatus and I think the sketches are pretty cool.
I better get my beauty sleep. Good night dear friends.
Well I certainly didn't break any land speed records today and yet things still got done. Took Becky Thatcher (the cat) and my niece, Jana, to Beavercreek Vets. Got to meet some beautiful big dogs while I waited in the waiting room. Now I'm not much of an animal person and for some reason that seems to be known by all dogs who proceed to attempt to earn my friendship.
This afternoon was spent working my list and continuing to binge-watch Chicago Fire. Hal finally made it home very late this afternoon. I talked him into taking a shower and putting on civilian clothes (as opposed to trucker clothes) so he could take me out for supper.
We went to Rail City Bistro AGAIN. You must be getting tired of hearing me go on and on about this little gem but it is a great place for a great meal. We have been totally spoiled and cannot accept the mediocre food served at other local restaurants. You know Hal. Hal doesn't like anything . . . especially if it is "different". Since Rail City opened he has tried and enjoyed so many different cuisines.
Tonight I was sure he was going to order from the menu and ignore the Friday-Saturday specials. He surprised me and ordered the perogies and tomato bisque. Hal does not like perogies . . . until today that is. He cleaned his plate so he got dessert . . . the special warm vanilla pudding (I can't remember the name but it is delicious). I had the cabbage rolls and a death-by-chocolate brownie for dessert.
Timothy called in a take out order of perogies, tomato bisque and pudding which we dropped off to him at work on our way home. Oooooops, I don't think I was supposed to say anything . . . bwahahahahahahaha!
You didn't make it out for their Friday-Saturday special? Sorry for your luck. Thank goodness they have so many lovely options on their regular menu. Try the tomato bisque for sure.
Tonight has been spent relaxing and binge-watching NCIS. Tomorrow is going to be busy for both of us. I'm grocery shopping with Nanna and Hal is going out for breakfast, running errands, and doing the body work on Snow. Busy. Busy. Busy.
Do you have tickets for Ned Durango at the Princess Ave. Playhouse yet?
