My mother and me . . .

(This is a picture taken Christmas '06, I think.)

While the guys are away, the girls will play. . . and that's what we've been doing. And it's been fun.
Tuesday Mother and I went shopping at Macy's and then Nordstrom Rack. At each place we found some treasures. Afterwards we went to Cotton Patch because Tuesday is their chicken and dumplin's day. Yum. On Thursday we went to Canton to visit a dear friend of Mother's who lost her husband recently. We visited another friend, then went out to the family cemetery in Colfax and paid our respects to loved ones there. That was a very touching time. Last night (Friday) we went to Brio's Tuscan Grill (Yeah, 2nd time this week for me, Bailey!) for dinner and then saw the movie, ELIZABETH, THE GOLDEN AGE (talk about a great girls' night out.) Tonight Mother is busy going to the Las Colinas Symphony with a friend so I am home enjoying some peace and quiet. I was needing it. I played 4 (FOUR) hours today in the tea room, as they had parties starting at 11:00 till 3:00. Ah, but I loved it. (We have a grand piano now. It makes all the difference, in my opinion.)

I can't wait till the guys get home, though. I MEAN, I CANNOT WAIT. They will have tales to tell and I CANNOT WAIT to hear them.

Then in about 2 months darling Laura will come home and tell her tales. Oh my. I may have to stay up late.

World travelers we all have been.

I do live a dream life.

Hmm, Brio two times in one week. Did you get the lasagna again? You should really venture out. That chicken dish was quite good.
