Yesterday hubby and I went to the valley to sit with his Mom, while his sister got a break. We had a nice time, lunch out at our favorite Japanese restaurant and stayed around until sister returned. My Mother in law looked good, but since her fall, she has gotten so she can't remember things. She uses a walker, and hopefully will not take anymore tumbles!! She is lucky she didn't break any bones.
Today, I started early, trimming and pulling out weeds, etc in the back yard. I can really feel the aching muscles!! Gotta take something so I will be able to walk my usual around the lake tomorrow. Hey, the bright side is the back looks great. I always enjoy yard work, but I can tell that my age is making it a bit more work than it used to be. Oh, well, I will keep doing it for as long as possible! I picked my first tomatoes the end of last week, they taste wonderful!!! Those bacon, avocado, tomato sandwiches are yummy!! Not bad in salads either. They are ripening just right, so I can keep up with them. Antique Rose

My friend, and fellow walking partner needs all the prayers that can be said. Her daughter had emergency surgery, and was told she had stage 4 colon cancer, and perhaps had spread into her liver, she will find out results of the biopsies this week. I would appreciate you adding her to your prayers, that she may recover and be well again. This is the second daughter who has had cancer, I am sure my friend could use a prayer too. I cannot imagine having to go this this yet a second time . Thanks so much. Antique Rose

Another meeting, another success!!!!!!! The ladies who were the hostesses this time did a great job with their salads, bread, and desserts!! Very tasty, and decorations were very festive.Everyone enjoyed them. I got recipe for an exceptional "Pea" salad, was told it was a vintage recipe. Husband wants me to make it for him, so guess that will be one of the items on our next week's menu. :-) Our decorations were patriotic themed. Some very clever ideas there. That was Tuesday. Today, my sister and brother-in-laws came and we went to Lowe's to purchase a new vanity for our main bathroom. After having picked it out, he also installed it. It looks great and was a wonderful 50Th anniversary gift to us. Many thanks to them. We fixed them a nice dinner as thanks, and we enjoyed it along with their company. We should do it more, as time is quickly passing!!!! Well, tomorrow is Friday, the week has flown by once again. With walking each day at the lake, and going to center to volunteer, the time really does fly. This weekend we are being treated to dinner out, and also dinner in. How is that, great huh?!! I know we will enjoy it!!!! Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend. Antique Rose

Had a nice lunch at the center today, which is unusual, I don't often eat a large lunch! But they were having a special one, a "luau" and it was fun, not only the food, but putting on Hawaiian dress.
It was special eating with friends there. Everything was decorated so pretty!! I stayed afterward to help with the monthly birthday party. They had little gals doing Hawaiian dances and they were so cute!! I got a few pictures before my camera's batteries gave out. I usually charge it the night before I am going to use it, but forgot!! Drat!! I think this was one of the nicest programs they have had for a while. My friend brought me some roses from her garden, they smell so good! Tomorrow is the monthly flea market here, so after breakfast I am going to see what I can find!!
Stay tuned. Antique Rose

No, I haven't been anywhere but here, but for some reason was not in the mood to write anything! I guess everyone has those times. Anyway, I have been busy!! I put up a few jars of Apricot jam, and have plums that are waiting. It has been some time since I made jam, as it really is cheaper to buy than get all the stuff needed to do so. I figured since a friend gave me the apricots, I should make a batch and give them some of the booty!! Hope to get the plum jam made later this week. Last Friday my friend and I went on another garden tour of a local regional park. It was quite interesting and we had a picnic lunch later. We have another coming up in August. I have a meeting of the Antique club next week. Everything is in order, and also it is our month to have our annual white elephant sale. That should be fun and also make some money for the club. I will make a cake to take as well. I try to do something each month to help the different hostesses. We had a very quiet 4Th. My husband had to go to the valley and help with getting his Mom back home from the convalescent hospital, we had our own little barbecue just the two of us. It was back to the usual routine today, walked around the lake and helped out at the center. Went to the oral surgeon and they made an appointment to do the next step in the process of getting the implants. Long time in coming, and they won't be finished in time for my 50Th anniversary celebration, but at least they will have started!!!!! That does it for this time, have the grands coming tomorrow.

Another busy week. My usual walks at the lake, and volunteering. A trip to the Fair yesterday, and that was fun, not only that, it was not hot, like it usually is!! A big plus. :-) We looked at gardens, that were presented by several local nurseries. Really nice. Got lots of good pictures which I will use for screen savers. I like to change often! :-) Then today, my friend and I went on a regional park tour. Really well in formed docent talked about it's history and some of the people who owned the land and donated it to the parks system. Ditto on the pictures, I plan to go back again soon!! My friend and I think perhaps we will do some volunteering there as well. Very nice people to deal with. We had a nice picnic type lunch, enjoyed after walking around the place! :-)
Also this week got my hostess letters out, and they have already decided on the food to be served as well as the decorations. Ah, so nice when all goes smoothly!!!! Have been invited to a barbecue, but chose to stay at home and have a restful do nothing day. Gotta have those once in a while. Hope everyone has a safe, fun day with loved ones and friends.
