16 March 2008

I'm so full! My neighbor had a going-away dinner for her sister and her partner this afternoon. There were seven of us, and we had, as always, a great time. On the menu was ham, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, applesauce, green beans, lima beans, and rolls. All home made. I brought Banana Cream Pie and Kelly made an Almond Apple Cheesecake. (The cheesecake was one of the best I've ever had, and I just entered it into a Word document. E-mail me if you'd like the recipe.) I'm home now, but like I said, too full. I'm glad there's still a lot of hours till bedtime!

I made Emily and her friends a carb-heavy breakfast of French toast and cinnamon rolls. It was what they asked for. I brought them up fresh sliced strawberries with Redi-whip as a snack. As they were leaving for home, they said they'd be back. Next weekend. I'm sure they liked the way they were treated here. I think Emily would prefer to be at their house. I'm about taking turns.

I've had a lack-of-sleep headache all day. I just couldn't fall asleep. It was probably because the kids were still awake. I woke up at 7:30, late for me, and was out of the house before 8:00 to meet Kit at the lodge. She had lots of pictures to show me on her computer. I think I'm about up to 15 on mine. Here's one Emily took today of us in her mirror. I'm wearing my favorite denim jacket.

I think a warm bath and pajamas are in my immediate future. Some TV or time with my book. I'm making an early night of it. Happy Sunday, friends.

Yum- lunch sounded wonderful. Great pic of you and Em. She sure looks so much like you.

I can imagine that it was hard to sleep knowing all those teens were in the house! Sure sounds like they had a blast and were well fed!

Rest up tonight!

I need you to come cook for me. My daughter and I eat a lot of chicken and salads.

Tomorrow I leave for a week in Mexico. I can't wait. But the flight will be long. I love to fly. BUT 8 hours in the air is a lot for me.

I have been getting a lot of grief on how long I wait to pack. Too funny. Laundry is done, clothes are sorted and packed. A girl must have options. And a small carryon that contains 1 day of clothes, my laptop and my cameras. The dogs laid down on the bed full of clothes and promptly fell asleep. I guess they didn't want me to pack either.

Have an awesome week.

I really, really like this picture. You look more like sisters than mother and daughter. Hope you have a warm, 'nuggly night and a happy tomorrow.
