This is the group of gals who came lunch Thursday!! Nineteen ladies including two former sisters-in-law, a niece and an aunt who is 96 years old ~ She was amazing ~ they left their hometown at 8 a.m., visited a carousel maker and the local carousel, and then came to our home!! They had a really good time and were a very fun bunch of ladies ~ they were so appreciative of what they ate and what they saw ~ they were wonderful guests!
My friend, Vivian, helped me serve and clean afterwards and I couldn't have done it without her help. The menu began with rosemary lemonade, potato-leek soup, frosted jello salad, chicken salad on croissants, bumbleberry pie and coffee ~ and thank goodness, they loved every morsel!
After all was said and done, my husband and I went to a Little League game at 5:30 where two grandson's teams were playing against each other!! We took chairs and sat behind the homeplate fence and cheered for both teams! The kids are young enough that they are just glad to play and there wasn't a lot of rivalry ~ they both did well!!
Friday we went to the lake ~ met our friends at our favorite Friday afternoon gathering spot for a cocktail or two ~ sat on our beloved rocks in the evening (some did, I crashed on the sofa at 9 p.m. and woke up long enough to walk to bed!). Saturday morning I drove back home to go to a hook-in, which was very fun and I'm so glad I made the effort! There were lots of gals there that I know, met some new ones, and saw beautiful rugs! I drove back to the lake in a pouring down thunderstorm in time to go out for dinner with my charming husband!!!!! And Sunday we had a surprise retirement party for one of our lake friends at the Mon Ami winery ~ that was really fun ~ they have jazz on the lawn on Sunday afternoons ~ a wonderful beginning to Karen's retiring from 31 years of teaching!!!
I drove home this morning with my son, Tad, so that I could make a 10:30 a.m. dentist appointment. Sonny left at 5:30 a.m. to get home to start working at 7 a.m. ~ he's afraid he'll get fired if he isn't at work on time!!!! After the dentist, I went to my friend, Donna's, to help her fine tune or stage, as I like to call it, her house ~ she's having her garden club on Friday and likes to have me accessorize her house and place things in the garden to their best advantage. Then we hopped in her car and ran out to find new patio furniture and a couple extra plants ~ in less than two hours we had that mission accomplished and the new plants set in the garden and I headed home before 3 p.m.!!! Donna and I can cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time!!
As you can see, my blog is aptly named ~ 'a day in my life' is like a whirlwind ~ not enough hours in the day or days in the week to get done everything I want do ~ so I just keep dancing as fast as I can!! Have a good evening and I hope you're dancing as fast as you can, too!!
