Happy Friday everyone!! Here are my five favorites......
My Sister's Visit
As I mentioned last week, my sister was here for a visit from Wisconsin. She is 14 months older than I and I usually only see her once a year. We had a fabulous visit!! We went to a small theater (local) and saw a production of “Arsenic and Old Lace” which was so good! We took walks, dined, and stayed up late chatting. I was very sad to see her leave and look forward to a visit next year!!
|Me, Grandma, Leah, Mom|
My husband and I decided to adopt Cole, the 1-1/2 year old Border Collie that we fostered for a few days. Now we have TWO Border Collies; Luke (3) and Cole. Seriously it's double trouble but they are so much fun and Joe walks them twice a day and I do playtime in the yard (ball, frisbee, etc). Cole seems really happy here and I am glad we took him back from the farm and decided to adopt him. He is very loveable and is eager to learn and be loved.
New (old) Book
I went to an indoor garage sale this week and bought an old book for 50 cents. I have never read this author's novels but am enjoying it thoroughly. It's called The Road to Paradise Island by Victoria Holt. Fascinating novel and I highly recommend it!!
About this book. “Annalice Mallory, the sheltered daughter of a family of map makers, discovers the cryptic diary of her long-dead ancestor that includes a map of a mysterious far-of island. Philip, Annalice's brother, sets sail for the island, lured by the promise of incomparable riches to be found. But when he doesn't return, Annalice sets out to find him – and the secrets of the diary -- in a desperate journey that leads her through the worlds' most exciting outposts . . . and finally to the tropical islands of the South Seas, where she encounters heart-stopping peril, but also the promise of love.” (taken from paperbackswap.com)
Dinner at Gram's
My grandmother hasn't cooked much since my grandfather passed away a year and a half ago but sometimes she surprises us and cooks a yummy meal! This week she made Galumpki (sp?), a good old Polish dish; hamburg mixture cooked inside cabbage. YUM. Haven't had that in a long time so that was a yummy treat!
Movie Night with my Husband
My stepdaughter, Amber, is having a friend stay overnight tonight and they rented two movies so I rented “The Secret Window” (starring Johnny Depp) for my husband and I to watch. We've seen this movie but have wanted to watch it again because it was confusing at first. It's been a very long time since we had movie night together.
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!
