Hello Friends how are you?
My weekend was really good. First let me tell you that we finally got the Fiber Optic Cable installed at our house. They installed it on Wednesday. It took about 6 hours. This was the fifth attempt. There had been rescheduling and actual cancellations, not by us, etc. Mark and I are like kids. We have been watching everything on TV that we couldn’t before. Our Amazon Prime would just buffer constantly before we got the cable installed. It was so frustrating. We have been catching up on all the Star Trek Next Generation and Deep Space Nine Episodes we like. Mark has watched 5 episodes of The Mandalorian on Disney and he is in love with Baby Yoda. He keeps yelling for me to come and see how adorable Baby Yoda is. You know we are geeks right? I think I told you we had had Hughes Net before. Hughes Net Satellite service is sort of a last resort for people who can’t get any other kind of internet service. For this I guess it serves it’s purpose. Even the man I talked to at Hughes Net said ” if you can get fiber optic, GET IT!!!” Well we have it now and I can even use my cell phone at home to make phone calls. Ahhh rural living, it’s the little things.
The rain continued most of last week. It did stop for awhile on Wednesday and we were able to have the cable installed. Thank goodness. The big tree that fell in the back yard is still right where it fell. Between Mark working and the rain we haven’t been able to cut it up. Maybe this week. My nephew Tyler is going to come and help. Friday Saturday and Sunday brought a lot of sunshine. Still a little cool but with the sun shining all is well. My favorite kind of weather. Cool, sunny days.
Look what is blooming. We always called these Easter flowers when I was a kid, because they usually bloom around Easter. The weather here has been so warm and we have had so much rain lots of things are starting to bloom.
I had Galentine lunch with my friend Lorie on Friday. We went to Kokita – Sushi Bar in Sweetwater. It is a fairly new restaurant. I am not a huge fan of sushi but they have a lot of other things on the menu. I love the Hibachi Chicken and their carrots are to die for. I have eaten there several times, actually two times in the past week. I also had lunch there last Tuesday with my friend Dann. If you are in Sweetwater check it out it is located on Main Street.
Lorie gave me these sweet tulips for Valentine’s and some killer earrings. I will take a picture and post them soon. I love them!!!!
Mark had lavender roses sent to me at work on Friday. They were very different, they were in a hat box. The hat box is reusable. He knows I love roses and hats so it was the perfect combination. My mother died on Valentine’s Day back in 2003. Mark always sends flowers on Valentine’s Day to try and make it a little brighter for me.
Aren’t these beautiful. They are specially preserved and supposed to last for six months. I’ll let you know.
I visited my favorite thrift store on Saturday to check out the book section. I get a lot of books on Kindle and on my devices with Tennessee Reads. Tennessee Reads is the program I told you about where you check out books online through your local library. It is great!!! I have read a lot of books since I got it. But I still love reading books and I have a ton of them. While I was at the thrift store, and it is always a little busy on Saturday, I was sitting in a chair looking at a book I was debating on getting. A woman reached for a large book above me and dropped it right on my head!!! It didn’t really hurt it just startled me more than anything. I had to laugh at the look on the woman’s face she was so embarrassed. I reassured her that I was fine and very hard headed so it didn’t hurt a bit. We had a good laugh over it.
Here are the three books I got. I started the Dean Koontz book and it is creepy already. I haven’t read Dean Koontz in quite awhile. The cat book is a book of short stories about cats. The friendship cake is a novel but also has a lot of recipes in it.
I made Mark a pecan pie for Valentine’s Day. We really don’t get into the whole celebration and spending a lot of money on Valentine’s Day. We have been married a long time. We buy what we want when we want it anyway without one or the other having to get it.
So the rest of the weekend was good. Catching up on laundry and reading and knitting and watching some amazing shows.
I repotted my Aloe Vera plant on Sunday. It has been struggling a bit. I think it is because the pot I had it in wasn’t draining.
I hope your Valentine’s Day and weekend was wonderful.
Love your day your way!!!!
