Today was one of those days that make you shout, "I do more before 10am than most people do in a day!" OK, maybe you've never shouted that yourself, but in the military we used to dog out the other branches that way. This morning the DH and I got up and went for a walk. We stopped at Starbucks about 2/3's of the way into our walk for breakfast. After we got home we proceeded to wash two out of three cars, clean all of our horse brushes and clean the driveway with a power washer. Whew!
Still no word from our Army soldier. Hope to get something in the mail this week or at the least a phone call.
Had a very cool thing happen yesterday. The daughter brought her bf (P) to dinner. We had ribs and filet mignon, mashed taters and corn, rolls, brownies and ice cream. It was a great meal. Before dinner we were all just sitting in the living room. I had just put down my latest scrap blanket so it was sitting close by. P asked me about it and Keith pointed to the stack of blankets on the hearth and said, "P, you wanna blanket?" P said he absolutely did. Well, I didn't push the issue - in fact didn't bring it up again. As they were getting ready to leave - some 3 hours later - he went over to the stack and picked one out. He looked at me and asked, "This one OK?" I was thrilled! It was my favorite blanket! I said, "Oh yes!" and he gave me this big ol' hug. On the way home the daughter sent me a text telling me how P had said it was an awesome blanket and that homemade things were the best. Did my heart good! With that thought I'll leave you with pics of my most recent 'planned' granny blanket for K & J who won our favorite diner. I hope to give it to them tomorrow or Wednesday.
SONG OF THE BLOG: "Do You Believe Me Now" by Jimmy Wayne. Yeah, it's country and yeah, it's a ballad. I know, I know.... Just give it a listen. I suffer through some of your music!
