Not a bad day. I could not sleep again last nite. I again saw 330 am. But after that I sleep well. Hoping for better sleep tonite.
I sorted through some clothes. Need to start a LARGE bag to start getting rid of stuff that does not fit or is worn out. Not today.
Tonite I took myself out to eat. As usual. Of course, I ate at Jalisco’s. I had camarones con arroz y fajoles. Too good for words. The cook is great but he is leaving. Makes me sad. But he is not going very far and we will stay friends. NOW if we can each learn a bit of each other’s language. Really frustrates me. I want to talk not just text.
Had my movie class tonite. My professor was absent tonite so we had a sub. Both are good friends of mine. He showed some cool clips. I loved the evening. And I learned tons of things about making documentaries.
Really cold tonite. When I drove home, it was 23F. About froze walking to the car. Be a 3 dog nite tonite!!!
On wednesday I had acupuncture. And got bad news. My acupuncturist is quitting. I am not happy. No clue where to go now. She has an idea. I did find a perfect one in Wichita but I can just hear Willie. Yikes!! Would be a bad moment in my life that would be the gift that keeps on giving.
Yesterday I went to Wichita. Ah, can pretend I am a city girl! I started with seeing my diabetic doc. I lost 6 pounds!!! How cool!!!
I ate lunch at Panera’s. Love their turkey and cranberry sandwich. And they have wifi.
Then time to fun shop. Stopped in at J. Jill’s. Love their clothes. Then on to Sephora. My credit card is still smoking. Got things I did not need but really wanted. In Denver I bought the parfum Boyfriend. I love it!! Now there is Millionaire Boyfriend. Love it too. Oh, be fun to have a millionaire boyfriend. (evil grin) Then Beauty First for shampoo and conditioner. I am all but out at home.
Ended the shopping spree at Best Buy. My router is going out at home so got a new one. Was harder to set up than it needed to be. Oh, if I was not so dumb…But it works great. The iPhone stays connected all the time. worth the money!!!
Now here I am at Mokas. And my fave Christmas song is now playing here…..Santa Baby. (big smile) I am meeting a good friend here. I came early to catch my blogg up. I have started writing it here on my iPad. Just keeping it simple.
On the way in, a really nice and quite handsome man spoke to me. And we started talking. He is a politician and quite outgoing. I knew of him. And as we talked he said he had bought hay from someone in Falun. Turned out to be my neighbour. Smalll world. Why are not more people friendly. I met at least 8 men on the way in here. Two said hi. TWO. And then this guy. He made my day.
May write more later if the day proves to be exciting.
I have never done Black Friday and never will. That was a day of rest for me.
I worked all weekend. Lindsborg was so busy on saturday. I could not find a place to park & the streets were full of people walking around. I dreaded work! But no one came in at all. I could not believe it. A couple of friends came in but that was it.
Today I gave one tour at work. Another quiet day. Kind of nice. I stopped in my friend Pilar’s art studio. It is next to where I work. It is really nice. I will love working near her! She is a great artist.
Weather is just too nice. But we are scary dry. Desperate for rain. Desperate. Our wheat could look much better. No rain soon, will have to haul water to our cattle. And I see no end in sight. To many people have their heads buried in the sand. Wonder what will finally give them a clue. There is snow north of our state but nary a flake here. I am scared the snow I saw in Denver will be it for me this year. Not happy.
We had a great Thanksgiving, possibly the best! Went to our son’s near Pratt KS. My brother Jay and my grandson Chris went with us. Granddaughter Ava was the hit of the day. She fell in love with Chris! She learned his name fast!! We had the usual food: turkey, dressing, mashed taters, rolls, potato sausage, pumpkin pie. What a great cook daughter-in-law Jenn is. Wow!
The photos above are of Ava, Chris & Ava, farfar Willie & Ava.
I have been too busy for words. Just no time to blogg.
Went to Denver for 5 days with a friend. She went to visit an aunt and I went to visit cousins. It was a great time! I ate far too much but it was all good. Did lots of shopping. Lots of visiting. Visited my uncle in a nursing home. Hard to see him. He is in his 90s. But he did remember me. Very nice. I also saw snow there! Wow! Might be the only snow I see this year. It was lovely. And cold. Will return again in the spring.
Had my photo taken for our church directory. I hate having my photo taken. Ick. I was amazed that the guy did a great photo of me. Very surprised.
I feel like I am getting a cold. Not good. My meds are at home, of course. Do not want to be sick for Thanksgiving.
Our weather has been just delightful. We are now spoiled. But we need rain so desperately. Have a small chance tomorrow. Too small. Warm now but colder coming.
We got a new car and I am loving it. It is a 2012 Impala. Gets great mileage. Rides really nice. I am so grateful to have it. Travelled great to Denver.
Had a good day. Lunch with a good friend and then tea with a couple of good friends. Nice.
Will write about Thanksgiving tomorrow and share some photos.
Today was a lazy day. Almost a jammie day. Should have slept later. Need a week to recover from my trip but have a busy week ahead.
Cold last nite. Down to 25F. Good for sleeping!
Ate supper at Jalisco’s tonite. Soooo glad to be there. They were all glad to see me. What a nice feeling! Had my usual: camarones con arroz y frijoles. Too good for words.
Went to my college class tonite. It is a movie class. Tonite we watched Dressed to Kill. I love it.
Busy day tomorrow. But will be lots of fun. More about it later.
I have been in Denver Colorado for the last 5 days. Spent lots of time with several cousins. Good times! Visited my uncle in a nursing home. He is in his 90s. He remembered me. Drove in lightning, thunder, ice pellets, rain, and snow last nite. Ended up with several inches of snow. We were able to return home today. The sun got rid of the snow on the roads.
