Good morning the lost has been found. Darlene and Michael came up yesterday to make me dinner. More on that to follow. Anyway when I took the Christmas tree down and moved the blue chair over closer to the center of the bay window I must have uncover some more of the floor. Darlene was looking at the books in the bookcase behind the chair and happened to look down. There on the floor almost under the end of the sofa laid my lost ring.
Now on to their visit. They had called to say they would be up on Sunday to visit. They also said don’t worry about dinner because they would make dinner when they got here. Well indeed they did.
The menu included roast (or baked) chicken, cheesey broccoli, scalloped potatoes, creamy (little) onions, and a lettuce salad. I have never had creamy onions before and really liked them.
Michael wins an extra thank you because he always cleans up the kitchen when he is done. I took advantage of him by asking if he would make a meatloaf out of three pounds of ground beef I had bought. He mixed that up and it was in the oven while we played some rummy. I sampled a bit of it while I sliced it and sealed it for freezing. It is going to taste really good later when I am looking in my freezer for a meat dish, Thank you both for a great meal and good company.
Today is Brandy’s birthday.
Well I finished John Irving’s novel Avenue Of Mystery and have started on Stephen King’s The Bazaar of Bad Dreams. This is a group of short stories that promises to delight my reading bug!
Well it is also time to start cleaning 2015 out of my file cabinet to make room for 2016. That promises to be a pain in the butt but a necessary duty that comes with the new year.
Have a good and productive week. Remember to exercise those face muscles because smiles make other smile back!
