The Table Setting
Happy Tuesday to you. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere I go.
I can just hear Bing singing this; my dad adored him and all season long, as a child, this album was playing on the phonograph. O.k. that last sentence dates me.
I finally figured out what I was doing wrong yesterday, thankfully, so here is one of the shots of our dinner table from Friday night. I meant to get it when the candles were lit and add a bit more glittery stuff but it ended up being very nice.
Yesterday I had a great time with my friend; we ran errands and I ended up buying a bundle of things at Bath & Body Works. Then I introduced her to Mad Greens, a fast food salad restaurant here that is healthy and fresh, one of my favorites. Whenever she visits I try to introduce her to a healthy alternative for lunch; last year I took her to Noodles & Co. which she loved. We did a couple more things-oh I might as well share that we went to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory for a piece of candy to finish off lunch. Although the drive to and from her place is between 30-45 min., I think having a friend come visit helps her days to pass quickly. I got home and hubby and I ran to the golf course restaurant to meet his coworkers and visit. It was so cold I really enjoyed a cup of coffee. The rest of the evening was good; we watched the Voice and it is fun to see it getting down to the last four singers. Hubby and I both think that the one remaining girl is going to win-she is the total package. I must say all the singers are really good and even the one fellow we didn't like has finally changed his look; thus appealing to a wider audience.
Today I will be walking Hunter shortly and then Kam is taking me out-my Christmas present, for a manicure and tea at a very special tea house. What Christmas fun! Tonight hubby and I are going to the library for a presentation on E-Readers. Last year I had thought of getting one for our travels but put it off and now I am going to check into the Kindle Fire; which allows you to get Internet and emails etc. When we travel we always take a laptop and if we could take something smaller it would be easier. I also have thought about a notebook but the Kindle seems more reasonably priced. I haven't seen my grands in forever, due to their being down with the flu(yes, I am one of those Nana's who stays away from kids with the flu)and I'm missing them like crazy. Maybe tomorrow or Thursday I'll get to visit with them.
I hope you have a great day today!
Hugs, Noreen & Hunter
