It began on Thursday with dinner with my Beloved fil. We go see him nearly every Thursday and we usually do dinner out. This time we went to the Chinese buffet and had a lovely evening!
Friday we had some shopping to do. Not Grocery but for things like doggie toys and speaker wire and such. We had supper at Outback. Man their shrimps have gotten really shrimpy in size! They were about quarter size. Over all not the best meal we have had there though the waitress was darling.
Saturday evening we met up with a PHer, Pink Carnation, and her hubby at Red Lobster. Now they KNOW coconut Shrimp there! After a leisurely, chat filled dinner we headed to Walmart for some more shopping.
This was such a special evening with friends. Sue Ellen and her hubby are very sweet folks and I enjoyed the joking and fun immensely! I am really in awe that some one drove here all the way from Dallas JUST to spend an evening at supper with me! Though the food was great the company was marvelous. I have not had so much fun at a meal in a long long time! It was awesome meeting a lady who is so much like me! I think we must be twins!
Sunday we planned to remain home, my allergies are killing me today! However youngest called and needed a package that had come for a business trip. So we piled Katy (my new puppy) into the car and headed off to deliver the cable. Realizing Katy had not yet eaten we drove thru and got her a burger patty. We got taquitos and headed home so I could begin the turkey dinner for oldest son who was coming out for the afternoon.
Tomorrow my running continues as it is the last day of the adult literacy council books sale and I want to go see if I can find any more real Nancy Drews or GLH books! I will meet my buddy there and finish any grocery shopping I have left after ward.
Then I think I will stay home and sleep and rest in quiet pleasure devouring GLH, my own or any new ones for a week!
2 weeks ago when I got a puppy her name was Dipper. I really detested that name. When my son came over that Sunday he also did not like that name and said I should change it. He was right. So now my baby girl is named Katy.
My reasoning will sound odd but here it is.
Katy is Dachshund and Wire hair Terrier, or German and Scot. My grandmother, Katherine was a German who married a Scot. I am told I dearly loved my gma but I do not remember, she died when I was 2. So in her honor I name my puppy that I dearly love, Katy. Because you see, I am also German and Scot, just like Katy.
So Friday Katy got a new RED collar with rhinestones and a bag full of toys and chew things. She also got a set of new bowls. While wandering around Petsmart I began noticing “clothes” for dogs. I am ashamed of myself because I actually found myself thinking, aw she would look so cute in that… more than once! I am not one of those people who dress up their dogs! At least until now I never used to be… Her main job with toys it seems is tearing into it until she can remove the squeaker. She is not content for a toy to remain unscathed until she gets the squeaker out. Then it becomes just a toy to be dragged around the house. I have stuffings every where.
That is how my weekend went and I really would not trade a minute of it. The allergy and headachy feeling yes but the time spent with friends and family over good food and the money spent on puppy stuff, not a bit!
