So...don't dust. You can do all sorts of things. You can write you name in it. Just don't write the date.

If you have guests over, use low lights and candlelight. If they notice the furniture, tell them it's a new fad in interior design. Velour furniture. If they buy it, you're home free.

Today I got my groceries delivered to my house this morning.

Between 3pm and 4pm I am going to see a Travel Agent about some places that my girlfriend and I want to go and visit in the next year.

After that I will run some errands and then come home.

Good morning everyone! It's FRIDAY!!!! Friday's are special because Lou comes in from Philly for the weekend.
I always begin the day with linen laundering - the sheets are agitating as we speak! Then it's off to work where I do my best to blow off the day. With any luck at all I can be out of work by 2:30 today. I try to never do more than 8 hours on Friday!
Then I was planning to stop at Bed Bath & Beyond because I'd like to get another blanket for the bed. It's supposed to be chilly tonight. Then a quick run through the supermarket for weekend meal ingredients and house essentials.
When I get home I toss the sheets in the dryer,unload the bags, vacuum the rooms which have carpeting, and swiffer the rooms without. I want to make a pumpkin coffee cake to have for breakfast tomorrow morning. I'll also make a fruit and cheese platter for when Lou arrives. (that's usually around 7:30, and he always brings pretzels from the train station). Once the cake gets in the oven, I'll unload the dishwasher, bring the sheets up, get into the shower, make the bed, turn the 'tree' on, .....and get ready for my weekend of ..... Cocktail hour officially begins at 7:35 pm.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

I wish I was having that sort of Friday/weekend VB. Its been three weeks since DH and I managed to grab one day together in London and he was so tired he slept through most of it. But we are hoping he will beable to fly over for a weekend in two or three weeks time, by which time hope fully all our stuff will be in storage and I'll have sold the car and be almost ready to join him full time in Italy.

The longest we had spent apart before this was four days...since we met. So it is interesting for us to see how we cope....which is ok but missing each other badly!

Yesterday, hubby was off work so we finished putting the den back in order from painting last Saturday. I'm working today but when I get off I have to go to Lowes to pick up some stuff. Hopefully I'll get my paycheck today so I'll have a little extra money to "play" with when I get there! When I get home I have to do laundry, mop the kitchen, clean the bathroom, & get hot dog chili made & put in the freezer. TC's birthday party is next Friday night & I have to get the house cleaned for that, plus we have friends comming from out of town & they'll be staying with us after the party.

well I`ve just raided the Lab stock room, and am currently mixing up a batch of Special Plant food, I`ve had to bring my 2 outdoor potted Chili plants in this morning as this is the second day we`ve woken up to fog, and the outside night temp is dropping into single figures, so I`m going to try my luck at pampering them and see if I can get them to Over-Winter indoors (or at least extend the season).
I`ve made a Stewp (a cross between a stew and soup), and that`ll go with some nice toasted garlic bread.
as for the rest of the day, I`ve got a few of my daughters toys to fix, and I`ll spend the rest of it being gratefull I don`t work outdoors all that much :)

btw, Happy Friday 13`th each :)

So long and Thanks for all the Fish ;)
