Late to the party this morning, but here are a few favorites from the past week.
1. Getting Jesse’s truck back. I think I mentioned that Jesse had a minor accident back in December. There wasn’t really that much damage to his car, but the shop had it for five weeks — and they’re still not done because they didn’t have all the parts they needed. But it is drivable and they’re supposed to call us when they get in what they need. He has an early class MWF, so I am very glad to let him take himself there once again rather than Mom taking him. 🙂 Plus, even though I try to be home when he is, it’s nice not to have the pressure of watching the clock while running errands to get to school in time to pick him up.
2. An impromptu date with hubby at Ruby Tuesday’s last Friday. For some reason we don’t go there often, but I really like their grilled green beans — and their white cheddar mashed potatoes and BBQ ribs weren’t bad, either!
3. An unexpected gesture. My husband was fixing a leak in the toilet valve last Saturday and somehow went from that to scrubbing out tubs and showers in two bathrooms. Very nice!
4. An unfulfilled weather prediction. Very bad storms and tornado warnings were forecast for last Wed. evening, so severe that prayer meeting was cancelled, but our area only got a bit of rain. We have a similar forecast for this evening — and I am hoping for a similar outcome.
They caught my eye in the store the other day and looked very much like a cookie I really liked as a child, though I have never heard of this brand. Oh, man — so good. The only problem now is going to be avoiding the temptation to buy them very time I go to that store.
