Hello my friends, oh it has been a beautiful and busy week for me. I am not sure I can even get it all into one post but I'll try.
My friend Terry and her husband came into the city to pick up her new car and his new truck....they are beautiful, with all the bells and whistles, Terry's car is silver and Rick's truck is white......as we picked them up was I ever tempted to shop for a new car as well but common sense took over as I know my little yellow car is in perfect condition with low mileage so I will keep my car and enjoy driving in Terry's when she comes in to visit.
I also saw the doctor on Thursday, not much to report as not much has changed. Her office is about an hour's drive from me and when I left home it was cloudy but the roads were dry and clear. About forty-five minutes into my drive it started to rain and was raining quite hard as I entered her office. When I came out it was pouring and before too long it turned to freezing rain, some spots were like driving on a skating rink. I drove slowly and made it home safe but was I tense by the time I arrived here. I wasn't long lighting a fire and pouring a glass of wine. Oh I love the safe haven of my home and really appreciated it at that moment.
I also read the book, Going Rogue by Sara Palin this week.....she is beautiful, talented but this is only my opinion, not nearly ready to be President of anything. I enjoyed learning more about her though and there were many things I respect about her especially how she allows nothing to keep her down....she is a survivor. She is not Going Rogue at all people she is going to the Bank!
I also saw the movie The Blind Side, I love any movie Sandra Bullock is in and I think this is one of her best.....perhaps because it was based on a true story that made me love her character even more than other characters she has played. She played the part of a woman who is a bit rough around the edges, a bit of a control freak who always likes to be in charge. A great movie everyone, if you get a chance to see it you won't be disappointed.
I have completed my Christmas shopping but still have to wrap gifts and do my Christmas cards. I still haven't decided if I am going to decorate or not this year as I will be at my nephews for a few days for Christmas and it is so much work only to have to take it all down, pack up and put away when I get home. I will say as I listened to my favorite Christmas music I did get the urge to get at it. By the way my favorite Christmas tape (yes tape) is by The Carpenter's. To me there is nor was a more pure voice than Karen Carpenter. I only wish I could get it in a CD as this poor tape must be 30 years old.....but it still plays well.
Well I also managed to nurse my cold and do all the normal things I do like housework, laundry and grocery shopping. It was a full week and I am so thankful I was able to enjoy it.
Good Night and God Bless........as always, many, many Hugs :-)
