Up and out early this morning. Double checked and decided I have enough Crisco, so just ran to the convenience store for the milk, and swung by a Dunkin Donuts for the first time in probably a couple of years, at least. Large black coffee and a couple of choc coconut donuts (one for my Sunday morning). Delicious way to start my day. Included that info in my morning email to C.L., and then remembered I had told her I wasn't going to mention my sweet eating to her anymore - she had asked if I wanted to go on a semi veggie diet with her and her husband, because "all that sweet stuff can't be good for you" !! Not surprisingly, I politely declined. lol
Kargiver, I hope you'll be able to relax a bit, let what you perceive as housework that needs to be done - go. Knowing you from the boards, I doubt if your house ever is in need of much of a cleaning. You keep it up daily.
I have to laugh at my next door neighbor - I've told you before how she keeps a close eye on me - the day my cousin was over, and backing her car into the driveway, my neighbor and I were standing out there talking. She stopped mid sentence and said, "Is that someone you know?" I laughed and told her yes, my cousin. She said, "Well, you never know. I just wanted to make sure you knew them." Yesterday when my son was over taking the island out of the car she came out on her deck and said, "Hi, XXX. We're out here picking from the garden." And as we walked to the back door she called over again, "Do you like cherry tomatoes? I'm going to pick some and bring them over to you." Just to let the MAN know she was right there and would be over! I told her the other day, "You take awfully good care of me." And she does, in that way, Some would call it nosey, but she's right there with cell phone in hand, - "just in case" as Loretta LaRoche would say. I get a kick out of it, because she's only in her 50's and maybe thinks of me as this helpless old lady. LOL Remind me of all this the next time I complain about her smoke drifting in my open windows, and them parking in my driveway! One certainly outweighs the other.
Going to pour the 2nd half of the coffee into my cup and catch up on the morning news before I start today's baking. Hope you have a wonderful day, Kargiver. I know your family will enjoy that meal. Wish I were coming.
