Family Day

July 25, 2016

Yesterday was a good day spent with family.

We went out for brunch with some family early in the day, then they came over and hung out for a  bit. A little while after they had left, a few other family members stopped by for a quick visit. It was good to spend the day getting caught up with some of the fam.

Mike spent the rest of the evening waxing my car! I didn’t even know people did that any more! We bought his car and my car 10 years ago. We knew that when we bought them, we would drive them until they died, and I guess that’s really what we are going to do. They are both super shiny and look brand new now!

Thanks for all of your sweet comments yesterday. I’m sure that hormones may have a large part in my mood swings. I will be 50 in November, and although age has never bothered me mentally, my body and my hormones may be very aware of my age and acting accordingly.

Yesterday was a good day. The only thing that made me cry was when we curled up on the couch to watch The Blind Side, and I’ve seen the movie like ten times! Hormonal or not, that one is a tear jerker!

The last three days, I’ve only eaten two meals each day. Brunch has been happening a lot, then dinner. Going to work on three meals today.

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Brunch – 20 SP?

Our favorite Salad that I always seem to have the ingredients for.

    You are right Nancy. Family time does make me happy!

    Love, Love, Love that movie!!

  2. Great movie!

  3. After you spend time with your family you can hear the happiness in your words.
    I watched the end of Blind Side and then the whole thing again–just love it when he reads that paper he wrote towards the end.
    I always wonder how his life is now.
    My nephew took guitar lesson on the campus of that school used in that film–that campus covers a whole lot of land and is so well maintained.
    I’m so glad I got to take him a couple of times just to see the place.
    Oh hope this is another glad day for you.
