Well, spring is here, or the calendar says it is. It doesn't feel like it here though. We did get to sit in the sunshine on the deck Sunday afternoon, though. And that was very nice.
I have been working on lots of designs even though I don't need anymore.
I just lost a friend from long ago. So I have had a lot of memories from back then. She was a neighbor and our kids grew up and went to school together. Our husbands were working and our kids at school and that was always when someones cow's would get out! So us women were out chasing cows trying to get them back into someones field so when husbands came home, they could get the right cows into the right field. Lots of coffee breaks together, too. She moved a year after her husband died because she couldn't take the memories in her house. So we kind of lost touch after that. That pretty much sums up a lot of my life. Have friends and then I would move away when I was a child, and then after I got married and my husband worked for the US Forest Service, my friends would move because their husbands got transferred to another district. I kind of think that made me leery of making friends. I always figured they would leave or I would. So I don't have a lot of close friends anymore.
We had two birthdays in the family this week. A grandson and a grandaughter-in-law. It seems like there is something every other week or so. We went to our 12 year old great grandson's lacrosse game a couple Saturday's ago. And it was sooo cold and sooo rainy. I about froze. Had raincoat and rain pants on and used an umbrella. But no boots. I could have worn my old farm boots but...So last Saturday I bought a new pair of cute rubber boots. I am quite sure it won't be rainy at anymore of his games now! In WA state, I doubt that will happen!
Our granddaughter is going to Gambia next week and I am going to worry the whole time she is gone. But I can't tell her that. She has been looking forward to this trip for several years. I am sure it will be an experience she will always remember and be quite enlightening. They actually had to send their water ahead so it will be there when they get there.
I have a hard time trying to figure out what to cook for dinner anymore. I just have a salad but I have to cook for my better half. It is very hard to cook for one person without having a lot of left overs all the time. So tonight I guess it will be stir fry. He likes that and it is healthy.
Well, I have taken up a lot of your time so will sign off and get back to work. Have a great week end.
