In response to SAW73's comment:
DS's party was a success, we couldn't have asked for better weather. We had 7 kids and two teenagers and 16 adults mostly family and friends who are better than family. We're just settling down for bed now the last guests didn't leave until 8:45. Hopefully everyone else had a great day too!
Can't get a clear box to post, so I'll try tagging it onto a reply to your post, Saw. Glad your birthday party was a success. That's a lot of people, bet your DS had a great time.
Kargiver, that's the way to shop - all in one swoop. I've never been lucky enough to find a whole bunch of clothes in one day like that.
Ended up listening to that little voice inside me that said, "Get your grocery shopping done - get your grocery shopping done", and went up to S&S late yesterday afternoon. There was a little eye of the round roast just sitting, waiting to be plucked up. Cute little guy. Only thing, I know that cut never makes any drippings for gravy, and I didn't pick up any help along the way for it. I'll cook it with potatoes and my favorite veggie, carrots, for dinner, regardless of whether others are coming. Too early to hear from DIL, as they went to a friend's wedding yesterday, and I'm sure that lasted late into the evening. Have dish and recipe out to whip up the dessert and get it in the oven, if she should call.
Hats, your grape hyacinths may just be a little slow this year. You can always wait it out and put in new plantings next year if you don't get the results you want this.
I don't believe there will be any Globe dropped on my doorstep today, think this is the end of my subscription. Have left the tip envelope for the deliverer, on the porch hope she thinks to glance over for it.
OK, I'm going to bite the bullet and his "Add your post". I'm typing on a blue field rather than the usual white, so don't know if it will indeed post. Have the back door open already, waiting for warmth from outside to heat up the house. Have a good day everyone - oh, here's the paper girl, dropping off the paper next door - - - no paper for me, and she didn't come to the porch to pick up the envelope.
