I am going to have a great weekend with friends. Yesterday 2 friends came to visit for the weekend and today Carla (PINKNFITCARLA) is coming too. The two friends that came yesterday are 2 that I grew up with from grade school and we have kept in touch all of these years and are good friends. One other friend that I grew up with wasn't able to make it this weekend and we are really missing her. She will come another time. Yesterday,we went to rehab to visit with Mom and she was so surprised to see them. We had a really nice visit. Today when Carla (my daughter) gets here, we are going to a craft show and then to a Christmas Holiday at "Country Collections". It is an old barn with 3 floors of crafts and lots of things. The bottom floor has all Amish made furniture: bedroom sets, dining sets, rockers, just any type of furniture and it is very well made. The owners' house is just next door to the barn and they move out of the house into an apartment over their garage for this celebration. They have the house all decorated for Christmas and you can tour the whole house. We are looking forward to this happy weekend. Carla will have to go home Sunday evening, but my friends are staying until Monday and one may stay longer. Yesterday, I made Southwest Chicken Chili and made cornbread for dinner. My friends hadn't had it before and it was a big hit with them. I also made an apple pie, which we didn't cut yet. I guess we will get into that today.
