Our host is Gattina. Come join us and tell us what YOU did this past weekend! After all, you never know when you will need an alibi!
On Friday I got up very early and left for my sister’s house. The drive was long, and I was exhausted when I got there. But my mother wanted to go out to lunch, so a bit later, we went and picked her up and we took her out for a nice lunch at a Chinese restaurant. It was a huge buffet and I felt so full when we left!
After lunch Mom came back to Mel’s house and while Melodie cooked, I worked on fixing her wireless router. It took me three hours, but I finally got it working for her home! I was so happy and very proud of myself!
My brother in-law came home and he took my mother back to her house for the night. Mel and I sat down, exhausted and talked with the Bride to be, who had come in from her job as a teacher. She is so excited, and is walking on the clouds! Young love!
About 8 o’clock Mel and I made peanut butter sandwiches with jelly or marshmallow fluff. They were delicious! Then we watched “The Big Bang Theory” on TV until about 9:30, when I went to bed. I fell instantly asleep!
The next morning I woke and Mel had already made me coffee! I was so happy. I had some cereal, and toast and then showered and got ready for the Bridal Shower.
We drove over early so we could help the Bride’s Maid of Honor set up for the shower. She has a beautiful house that her husband built, and they have decorated it in a very fine manner.
The guests began to arrive at noon and by 12:30 all the ladies were there. Then I looked out and saw Mandy, Janet and Savannah come. I went out to the car and Savannah saw me and beamed at me! I picked her up and carried her into the house and took off her jacket. Then I brought her in and surprised my mother with Savannah!
This was the first time she has ever seen her. Wonderful!
Savannah and my grand-niece Abby!
The Bride opened her presents and everyone enjoyed the event. Jinny smiled all afternoon and it made my heart full to see her so very happy.
Finally, about 3 o’clock, Mandy and I each left. Mandy and Janet in one car with Savannah, and me in my car. I knew I would get home after dark, but I also knew Hubby really wanted me home. It was still good weather and so off I went.
I was driving along when my cell phone rang. It was Nataliya from the hair salon. I knew before she said it that my dear Margarita had passed away. I started to cry, but I knew I had to remain under control so I could drive.
I am so deeply saddened. Margarita was such a wonderful and good friend. As much as I am happy that her pain is over, I am grieving her loss.
I called Hubby after and told him, crying once again. He said to be careful driving, and call him again along the way.
I did, and after it got dark I could not see well. I was so upset, and scared, but I eventually got home and collapsed in the house. Hubby made me dinner of spaghetti and meatballs. And a nice brandy!
I slept very well last night with the dogs, it was so great to be home.
