Rama, congratulations on closing on the house. You must be ecstatic. I am so happy for you. I am sure, lots of work on the new house coming up for you. Everything will be uprooted and messy for a while, but it is "happy" work, so try to enjoy it, while it is going on. Living w/the in-laws turned out to be a good experience for you and your family. Be thankful for that. Wouldn't have worked for so many other families. You are so blessed.
tt, why are you so worried about your lawn guy seeing you in a nice robe? My lawn guy comes here first thing in the morning, but I do not dress up for him. My hair is combed, and my robe is clean. Truly, I don't think your lawn guy care at all for whatever you are wearing. All he needs is his money. LOL
Winter, happy your walking has paid off with a nice weight loss. Was that your intention, or was it just getting into a better shape? Whatever is was, you are on the right track with lots of benefits.
Kargiver, your garden makes me so envious, but I am still so happy for you. Parsnips? I didn't know, anyone uses them. I have a love affair with them. I would never make a soup - any kind - w/o them. They give such a lovely sweet taste. Whenever I check them out, the cashiers are wrinkling their noses. What are these, how to you use them? Kar, do you grow leeks? They are the best ever. Little more work as the have to be "blanched" (covered with dirt to protect them from the sun). But they have the sweetest onion taste ever. I just love them. Saute them w/ sliced up carrots or use them in a Potato Leek soup. Or just saute them the way the are. Heaven!
Had such a great day yesterday, even though busy. Got ALL the items I needed. I am happy. No more shopping. Just in case anyone needs men's T-shirts, they are on sale at Target for $4 each. Nice Champion brand and a good, soft quality. It was not on my list, but I bought 4. DH uses them for tennis, and I just couldn't let that offer pass by. Hmm! Now I am thinking, maybe I should go and pick up a couple more for the boys. They use them a sleep shirts.
And of course, I went to my "candy store" - Carters. I am now buying for 9 months. They look huge to me. Has she really grown THAT much? Got 3 outfits plus 6 bibs. Now that she is eating solid food, they need those more than the outfits. LOL
"Birthday party" last night went well. SIL loved the wowie cupcakes. She doesn't bake. Never did it - don't know how to. Now she has something to serve w/ a candle, when her real b-day come along.
So missing Hats. Hope she will reconsider and post here again.Have a good day all.
