Good Sunday morning,
So quiet on these streets this morning, not even the usual church traffic. People must be getting the last week-ends of summer away.
Sitting here with a soup cup full of black coffee (milk had turned), and the last wedge, and I do mean wedge, of cake. Just too hungry to bother making a breakfast, and that chocolate frosting was calling out to me.
Hats, you had a great day at the outlets. Thought you had already found a dress for DD for the special occasion? Maybe she saw this one and liked it better? Oh, I re read now and see there are two occasions, one dress for each, probably. I had wanted to go to Kittery this past week, but that was the day my cousin had cancelled. Thought of driving up alone, but not as much fun by yourself, tho regular shopping around here, I prefer to go by myself, can get in and out of the stores as quickly as I want. Think it comes from years of shopping quickly on my lunch hour at my first job in downtown Lynn - would head out to Rooks, Empire, and then the shoe store that was way up on Union St., past the other stores. Gawd, how I loved their shoes. They would fit them to you, fitting the back of the shoe to you if your heelwas a little narrow, and a piece under the heel so the back wouldn't rub. Had beautiful shoes for every outfit - NOW, it's those styleless SAS'! Never would have believed that if you had told me that then. I was always going to be stylish and up to date. HaH!
Kargiver, what a nice time you have had with company. I'm sure your mother and father will get back home and talk about how proud they are of you and the warm home you have made, that makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable.
I will have to get around this morning and do a little baking of something. All I have now is the lemon bread and if my nephew should stop in, I know he doesn't care for that. Now the challenge will be something that doesn't require milk - brownies?
Can't believe it's after 8:00 and still so quiet here - did something happen and I'm the last person on Earth? haha Not even a leaf on the tree is moving. But I guess I 'll get going and get a wash thrown in, that always starts the day. Hope you all have a good one. I'll be around, no plans (boo hoo) - Ah, at last - a walker going by. What a peaceful route he's chosen. Chat later.
