Your weekend

i get to see my kitties! (i gave them to my Parents when we left our other place- landlord won't allow them). then we'll probably cook stuffed peppers.
other than that, i'm without a clue.


i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

Baked 10 Grain bread at 4:30, when my labs got me up. Fixed the attic fan, set up the dehumidifier in the basement, more work around the house, more of the same tomorrow.

Made tuna pasta salad for lunch, after lunch will go shopping for garden plants (we're pulling out the bolted lettuce today) and groceries, weed the veggie and herb gardens, and plant anything new I find today. Tomorrow morning, read the paper practically cover to cover, as always, then maybe a visit to the botanical garden in the afternoon. And a bit of housework here and there.

"The Backyardigans" - a new Broadway show about lovable Irish neighbors who lean over the fence and compare tomato crops. Based on a real-life neighborhood in joisey, with a wise-crackin' guy who loves to cook.

I'm cleaning my mom's house from top to bottom as a surprise for her while I pet sit. Don't get me wrong, it's very neat and orderly (in case she ever finds this post), but I'm washing walls and baseboards and cleaning the kitchen appliances and power washing the outside, etc. Can ya tell I'm bored out of my mind????

Today, took the visiting kids shopping and then dropped them off at the beach while I went to a talk by a local doctor on "Tropical Diseases and Other Perils" - I know, I know, doesn't sound like much fun, but saw lots of friends there. Also met up with a woman from our home state whom I met on another forum about Mexico - she is visiting and thinking of moving down here. Fun to meet in person! Tonight, dinner at our favorite little restaurant - very "rustico" but wonderful food. All six of us will eat as much as we can hold for less than $20!

Tomorrow, having 20 people over for dinner to meet our kids. Serving pulled pork, potato salad, coleslaw, watermelon, brownies and home made ice cream for dessert. Other people are also bring additional salads and side dishes.

Mostly, just feeling very grateful for our wonderful life, and the opportunity to share it with our kids.
Saludos, Karen

Today, went to Tybee Island. Flat tire on the way back and burnt to a crisp. Tomorrow, I'll hit the market, call dad and relax.

If you ate pasta and antipasto, would you still be hungry? ~Author Unknown
