Well we had a busy, productive week-end over here and sounds like many of you did too as I visited around some this morning. My sisters and I did make it to Knotts Berry Farm to the Chicken Dinner House for lunch, and followed it up with shopping at Virginia's. It was such a nice time and I am glad we did it. Seems funny, but honestly the 4 of us have not done much like this. 2 of us might get together occasionally, but rarely all 4 of us. I intend to make the effort to see that we do it more often in the future. I wish we had done it more with mom ~ how she would have loved it. As it turned out, no one bought a thing (REALLY kind of expensive) but we certainly enjoyed looking. I intended to snap a picture or two, but forgot all about it. We spent WAY more time just in conversation, and as corny as it sounds, you can't put a price on that. It sprinkled some on Sat. and that was really kind of nice too. While I was gone enjoying myself, hubby shampooed the bedroom carpets. We bought a shampooer several years ago, and honestly it was one of our better purchases. We have used the thing to pieces. It kind of scares me how dirty carpet can get with just two people (well 3 really I guess since mom spent most of this last year here too) living here, no one EVER eating in those bedrooms, or rarely wearing shoes from outside in them either. And yet hubby said the water was black, and he just kept going over and over and OVER it until it looked pretty clear. Probably because the windows are open frequently and the dust and dirt just blows in somehow. I do know that they look beautiful this morning, and I am sooo grateful he did such a thorough job. Sunday my step sister Barb decided to join us going down to San Diego to church as she has been wanting to hear my son preach for a while now. I am soo glad she did. She did take her own car though as we were planning on spending some time at their house in the afternoon as we had not done so in a couple of weeks. We took her to lunch before heading over there for a couple of hours and spent some time catching up with her. We enjoyed our time for sure, and I was amazed how much it felt like a little taste of her dad as well. She is like him in many ways in addition to looking like him as well. I have missed him soo much this last year too. We visited and had a good time with my son and his family. Poor Larissa is soo done with being pregnant. I certainly remember that feeling well. Hopefully it won't be too much longer and we will have another new baby...maybe even this week! After our visit I got my wonderful hubby to go by JoAnnes with me as they had their warm and natural on sale and all their batting for 50% off, and I had a 15% off your total purchase as well to make it a whopping 65%. With all of my quilting projects coming up it seemed like a good time to stock up a little bit. I had other coupons as well and got some muslin, and some more quilting tools for some good prices too. And if that wasn't enough to ask of him, he also took me to my favorite shop to get some underthings that were on sale for a HUGE savings too. He waited in the car for me this time though. ; ). It helps me out soo much when he does this though as he can drop me off at the door of the store and picks me up there too so I don't have to use my knees as much. I continue to be in such pain. And for those of you who have emailed me and asked if I have scheduled my surgery yet, the answer is no, but it is on my list for things to accomplish this week. I am just dreading it so. He finished off being my wonder man by bbqing some tasty burgers for dinner last night. We had some fresh sweet corn on the cob and watermelon as well...soo good.
Well, guess that catches things up. I am going to be working on something that I want to do for Melody's birthday on Wed., but I will tell you about that another time. OH, and my wonder hubby also set my new machine up for me on Sat while I was gone, and I am hoping I might be able to figure some things out on it using the instruction books and video. My first class is not until August 9th, so in the meantime I am just using my old one. Hope you all enjoy your week! Blessings to you all! Debbie
