saturday was an unexpected gift from GOD..because of my limited mobility i don't get out too often..usually, just to medical appointments..not exactly my idea of fun, having my blood drawn or hooked up to a machine to make sure the pace-maker is timing correctly....but, oh man, this past saturday!
my son & dil invited an old family friend for dinner at their house..as luck has it, the friend "uncle mike" only lives 2 parkway exits from where i live, so i was picked up (like a queen) and had a calming ride into the old neighborhood for a lovely visit & dinner..i hated seeing the changes in the neighborhood i spent most of my life in, so many of the businesses i frequented are gone now, even the movie theather is now a "modell's" sports goods store, but, i spent a good amount of time with my son, my beautiful dil, my dil's lifelong BFF, donna(boo-boo) & boo-boo's handsome husband, noel...
my dil cooked her little heart out, making the things i don't make anymore(since i only cook for me now, i don't do meatballs & sauce or eggplant parma)..i ate just enough to be satisfied and enjoyed myself so much..it was nice to have pleasant table-talk with humans..(as much as i love my zoey-zilla, i get tired of talking in cat meow, i mean, how many ways can you say "meow"?)
i got home around 9PM, more tired then i've been in a year of sundays...i barely finished saying my prayers before i zonked out..didn't wake up once that night, and slept until almost 10AM!..
didn't have too much to do on sunday, my thoughtful kids packed me a "mommy bag", so i didn't even have to cook on sunday..all in all, i could learn to love days like that..
thanx, uncle mike, for being such a good friend...and thanx, john & doedoe, i love you guys..thanx boo-boo & the man, for just being you guys...and, anggie-bangy (my grand-puppy), this nana loves you very much.
