It's coming back slowly (my energy, that is) and today after school, I ran some errands. First to Staples where I get my photo paper because finally I am going to print Rachel Hogue's feather picture. I was touched when Christine at The Hogue Chronicle commented on a post I did about two weeks ago. I had taken a picture of a blue feather and when her daughter saw it, she didn't want her mother to move away from the page. She loved the blue feather. How adorable. So I wrote to Christine and told her I wanted to send her daughter a print. And even when I saw the adorable photo of Christine's daughter entitled "Little Feet" over at Kacey's February Photo of the Month post, did it make me go any faster? Ha!
Next stop was my favorite flower shop where they now know me. I picked up a few Gerber daisies and they promised to contact me when they had leftover tropicals from a wedding or something. I even get to go into the special cooler room and choose whatever I want. They're so helpful there. So the picture I'm posting today is a lovely cream colored Gerber daisy. I took it in natural light while the sun was going down through the wood blinds in my living room. I didn't use a tripod either because I'm lazy. Nah, I was actually just tired from my walk.
George knows what time I get home from work and he's always waiting outside for me behind the fence then he rushes into the house to greet me when I come in the front door. And every day after I hang up my coat, I tell him that "I have to get changed". He knows that this is his cue to rush like mad up the stairs and then plant himself outside my closet door while he waits for me to change out of my nice clothes. God, he's so cute. I bundled up because suddenly it's terribly cold again and told my husband I was going to go a little further today. I did, and almost overdid it because I had a coughing fit I couldn't overcome. But really, I am feeling so much better. Thanks to everyone for the kind words from yesterdays' (and every days') posts.
I'm excited for the coming weekend because after Saturday morning housekeeping chores, I'm leaving for Jersey to visit friends. I'll be staying at Adrienne's house and her mom, my best friend Karen, is coming as well. Karen is really close with her daughters, Adrienne and Rene. I've known them since they very young. I'm 10 years older then Adrienne and 10 years younger than Karen. When I first met her, Karen didn't seem to like me very much. But once she decided that I was not after her new boyfriend, it was all good and we've been friends for 30 years now.
If the weather's good, we're going for a nice walk in a state park nearby, and then we're going to get pedicures. We're making a scrumptious dinner and dessert and settling down for the evening to play games and laugh. And drink some wine. I love being with them and I can't wait to see them again. My husband says it's always boring when I'm not around and I know this, but he'll have George to keep him company. Have a great Thursday, everyone!
