The little family that we sort of adopted is becoming more and more a part of our lives and I couldn't be more thrilled. Tomorrow, the Mom is dedicating her two children at church and we have been invited for that, as well as lunch at their place after. I am taking a salad and some watermelon that I just cut up.

I also made a card for the dedication and just wrapped small gifts for all three of them.

Everyone says that they are lucky to have TB and I in their lives...I think that is a definite two way street.

Now I am going to bed as it will be an early morning.

Z, check with your library to see if they have volunteers who will pick up/drop off your books. When I volunteered at our library, there were a couple of people who did that. We even had a special spot to put the books for the "runners" so that we could watch for them when they came in. The home-staying patrons loved having books coming and going, and the runners were all people who loved to stop and spend time with the patrons. Everyone benefited. Maybe your branch has the same kind of service.

Laurie, I hope you and TB have a wonderful time! Clear sailing and happy sites. And may you have a clear and fog-less day from wherever you are when you are nearest to Denali. A friend who took an Alaskan cruise said they were docked on the clearest of clear days and she could see the peak from shore.

Well well, hello stranger! So glad you stopped back to visit, Katy. Pop in now and then to let us know what's cooking.

Thanks, CG, I will be on the lookout for that and if we get that clearest of clear day I will take a picture just for you!

Oh definitely pictures. Let us live vicariously. Have a great trip and remember to give hubby a big hug everyday. You certainly have a special man there.

Yes, Addie, I do - and I never let myself forget it! Like today. We always go out to eat once on the weekends, nothing fancy but just to get out. We have our favourite places, but my diet is so restricted now and complicated. So TB spent part of his evening searching for Vegetarian restaurants in the area that aren't based with rice and/or tofu dishes. He actually found a couple of places so we may try one tomorrow (or I guess it is later today).

Just got back from taking SO to the airport for her (and my) vacation. Stopped at a local diner for breakfast but it doesn't open until 7:00AM on Sunday so I'll have to go back in a bit. Mmmm, country fried steak, home fries and two over easy.

Don't feel bad. It wasn't all that good. Not up to their usual standards.
