Happy Monday How was your weekend?
Last week here in East Tennessee started out really cold. We even had some snow on Monday night. At lunchtime on Monday I ran over to the Eye Doctor with my husband to help him pick out some new frames. I don’t know why he insists on having me there I have never told him I didn’t like anything he chose to wear, well except that one time he ran into our local bank wearing torn sweatpants. And they were not torn in a fashionable place like everyone wears now, if you get my drift. So his appointment was at noon and I went over to help pick out frames. And it snowed Monday night!!! It was a soft wet snow, the kind that is just perfect because it doesn’t stay on the roads. But the trees and bushes were beautiful it looked like a winter wonderland.
On Wednesday I had a day off. I have been trying to use some vacation days before the end of the year so I will be taking some random days here and there. I sort of like having these odd vacation days. Don’t get me wrong I would much rather be going on a vacation to somewhere warm or different. But with things the way they are now I will just stick close to home. I needed to have my car serviced it has been making a strange sound when I break or turn into a parking lot. Just a weird noise. So I called on Tuesday and was able to set up service for Wednesday morning at 8:00 AM. The dealership is about an hour from my house. When they asked if I would be dropping it off I said I had no one to pick me up. Mark had to work and I didn’t want anyone to drive that far to pick me up and then have to take me back. I told them I would be staying at the dealership. Remember the last time I went? I told you how I actually love being there doing nothing. I know this would drive some people crazy but it is not often that I just get to sit and not have anything to do. So I sat and I knitted and watched videos on my phone, and I addressed Christmas cards. A friend of mine shared some addresses of service men and women who would be unable to get home for Christmas. They found out at the last minute their ship would not be home for Christmas. My friend arranged a Christmas card send-out to all of those crewmen. I had eleven of the names so I spent some of my time at the dealership doing that. I tried to write a note in each one and let them know how much we all appreciate their service and tell them a little about what was going on in my hometown. My car was finally finished and I took off just in time to meet the sisters for our weekly Sister Lunch. After I got home I finished the day watching a movie with the fur babies. A good day off.
I ended the work week doing a pick- up at Walmart for groceries and taking things to my little mother in law at the Assisted Living Center.
Most of the weekend was pretty quiet. I did laundry and cleaned and I spent a little, actually more than I care to admit, time working on a jigsaw puzzle. This led me to the realization that life is also like a jigsaw puzzle. If you missed that last post you can check it out here. I also took a long walk and got some pictures. Why do weekends go by so fast???
Have a wonderful week!!!!
Love your day your way!!!
