Wednesday, the 30th

Walk and breakfast as usual, pleasant today out there. Been sleeping good till about 7 or 7:30.
While Theresa went to work at Cathy's for a couple hours, I put another coat of oil on the bowls. She came home at noon for lunch, then had to go to her chiropractor appt., and then took Kellie to a riding lesson. In the mean time, Cathy picked me up and took me to her ob/gyn appt. We got to listen to the heartbeat, which was very exciting. Then we went to Locatelli's for an Italian dinner of eggplant parmesian - we brought back some pizza for Kellie and Theresa.

Today, in keeping with my routine, I went for a walk and had breakfast. The air was a little warmer today. While Theresa went to work at the stables, I went outside and watered and fertilized her plants for her. I also put the first application of mineral oil on some wooden salad bowls that she got for her wedding. They had looked very faded, but even the first coat of the oil made them look alot better. I had leftover lasagna for lunch, then Theresa came home, and then Kellie came home from school. I made chicken and stuffing for dinner - Cathy joined us since Michael was at his parents house that night.

The First Monday

Today began with a walk in some chilly weather - had to wear my Cleveland clothes. Then I had breakfast and worked on the monday puzzle and sudoku. After Theresa came back from the stables we had lunch and went to the grocery store to pick up the ingredients for stuffed cabbage. It turned out well and Michael and Cathy also joined us for dinner and chit chat afterwards.

Went to the Church festival

Took a walk but it was almost too cold outside. Had breakfast when I got back. In a little while Cathy and Michael stopped over and we went to the Church festival with Kellie. Kim and William met us there. Theresa was at a class. They had a lot of people and a lot of booths. They even had a live auction with many big items. Had good food -- Texas-style (BBQ) but the most fun was between all of us winning 5 cakes at one of the booths. Everyone was happy about that.

The most fun was when I bought 2 confetti eggs and Michael and Kellie cracked them on Cathy's head.

When we got back we had supper and talked for a while.

We also saw some of Kim's recent photography. She is very good. She took some pictures of a bee on a Texas Bluebonnet and it's so amazing. The bee and the flower are in perfect focus and the rest of the scene is faded. Really cool shots. I think she is entering them into a contest.
