It's the 14th of January and in one month.......31 days......Dream Boy & I will be heading to Florida!
Same place we were blessed to go to last year with the same friends we are blessed to have in our lives.
But for now, it's reality.
Friday night I talked Dream Boy into going to our little, local Mexican restaurant just down the road. It's soooooooooooo good. I even get my Coke in a glass bottle!
We came home & watched "The Iron Lady" - the story of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. We both really liked it. It was a very different perspective of her life, but so very good.
Saturday I cleaned the house & then went on a photo walk with Libbi the Wonder Dog. She was SO happy. We had a 55 degree day with sunshine. Not too often do we get that kind of weather in Michigan in January. Dream Boy & his buddy went on a 42 mile bike ride - he was one happy little camper.
Saturday night we went out for dinner to a local restaurant that has some of the best pizza on a foccacia crust. Then I finished it off with Tiramisu. Oh.my.goodness. Even the couple at the table next to us were somewhat drooling over it while they waited to place their order.
We came home & snuggled down for what was supposed to be a long night of bad weather. We were predicted to have rain, changing to sleet to freezing rain to snow & it was supposed to be horrible this morning.
We woke up to rain & wet roads. Temps were in the mid 30s..they steadily dropped as the day progressed and by 4:00 snow & rain mixed began to fall.
But to be honest with you, I would rather have all snow. We have NOT had any decent amount of accumulation since last February!! I truly miss it. I am one of those rare Michiganian's that embraces where I live and loves the changing seasons & all that they bring - snow included!
I spent most of my Sunday in my Creative Corner working on burning my photo's from 2012 to CDs/DVDs and deleting them from my computer. I really need to be more on top of that this year.
I also spent the day working on my Project Life. I've completed the 1st two weeks of this year and really am enjoying it. I want to keep this going all year long. I did not invest in Becky Higgins' system, rather I'm making my own up as I go. It's been fun getting back into my scrapbooking supplies and preserving memories in print again.
Dream Boy made dinner for us - ribs & baked potatoes. Son #1 & a buddy came over to share them with us. We called Son #2 & told him not to drive down from GR with the way the weather was changing.
So, I'm off to prayer time with my gal pals and a half day of school.
The other half will be spent in the dentist's chair having a tooth pulled that broke over Christmas break - all the way through the root.
I guess it'll be soup & something soft for dinner tonite!
Have a happy week!
