I had lunch to day with John. Since it was pretty cool outside, we had soup. Just perfect. While there, one of Willie’s friends came in. His friend, my frienemy. I was surprised. She actually talked to me. Why does she not do that when we are out for steaks on a saturday nite? She was alone & I should have asked her to sit with us, but I did not. If the tables were turned, she would not have included me.
I worked today at the Red Barn. It was a quiet day. No tours. I got most of the thank you notes written & mailed. An artist came in from Wichita. We had a very nice visit. And my friend Agnes was there all afternoon doing some work for Marsha.
Then I drove around town taking photos. The trees are starting to be quite lovely. But I also have noticed some evergreen trees that are dying if not dead. That is so sad.
Then supper at the new soda shop. They let me taste the soup they are serving this week. It was very good. Then they told me about the Mexican soup they served over the weekend. AND. They defrosted me a bowl to take home to try tomorrow. I tasted it. Mums!! They will certainly get my business again.
When I got to the home, Mom was all made up for Halloween. One of the girls had given her a long blond wig to wear. They had put makeup on her with lots of sparkles. I had bought a large gold crown so she wore that. Her roommate was also dolled up in purple with a crown. She truly looked like an old dowager queen! There were not as many kids as last year. Probably because last year the weather was bad & tonite it was nice out. Lots of nice costumes. Pictures will follow later. I took almost 300!!! Will take a while to sort throught them.
Finally home around 9pm. And what a homecoming. Should have stayed in town. I made the mistake of making a simply comment. Not an accusation, or an opinion, or negative. It was nothing. And Willie just yelled. Yelled. How pleasant. And I called him on it. And then I sat in tears. Of course, now he is miffed because I dared to stand up for myself. Did he expect my feelings not to be hurt for being yelled at for no reason? I give up. I have learned that no matter what I do or say, it is always wrong. Just like when I grew up.
