It has been one of those days. Bill went to drop our tax papers off and bowl a couple of games.When he left bowling alley his mini van started choking and he ended up in a parking lot.Hurray for AAA. He had it towed his mechanic. I had to go get him and that was fun. He had backed the car in as he wasn't expecting me to do any driving. By the time I got Roxy settled in her cage my knees were killing me. So it was very hard for me to get in car but I had no choice. So I put my stuff in passenger seat and then had to maneuver around car to drivers side. Doesn't sound hard but for me it was extremely hard. But I did it.
I had already given Bill the grocery list for Publix so I took the one for Winn Dixie. I figured since we were out he could do it all. I did ask him if he was too stressed to do it. He was fine with it. I took my book I just started and read while he was in stores
I just finished James Patterson's book The Lake House. I read it in about 2 days as it was good.It is on strange side but kept me interested.It is a little sci fi as it was about 6 kids that had been experimented on and they all have wings.The mad doc is chasing them.
I just started Nora Roberts Origin in Death. Bill picked it and several other hard back books at a yard sale. 3 of hers and 5 of Patterson's.
I didn't think I could outdo my soup fiasco but I did. I baked some chicken wings and put a little BBQ sauce on them. I put some in a small bowl and it was sitting on my TV table I use in kitchen. I went to move it and the bowl slid off. BBQ sauce everywhere. Poor Bill cleaned it up. I made him take my food to living room.Yes we eat in living room on TV trays.Only I use my make shift card table
Bill got a good pic today. One robin stopped by and he got a pic

The neighbors tree is full of blossoms

And here is a potato winking at you

  Hi Eleni.........
If it weren't for miss-happenings, the 4 of us wouldn't have any happenings at all!!! Today, Ken and I were at Walmart and when we went to check out, EVERY check-out lane was filled at least 6 people deep!!!!! It looked like someone said that there was an emergency and everyone should stock up on food NOW!!!!! Come to find out........their computer system was down!!!!! You can believe how many people just left their carts and walked out of the store. We only had about a 2o minute wait and all was well again. Some people are so IMPATIENT!!!
I emoticon ed your Spring pictures!!!!! With our snow and cold weather, it was great to look at your Robin and blossoms. The potato was cute too!!!
Have a great Sunday. Can't wait to hear about what happens tomorrow. I think we will stay home just in case.

    You manage to find the most INTERESTING subjects for your camera! LOVED the potato...he IS winking at us.

Speaking of embarrasing car problems. I went to do a 'whole house' estimate the other day and our car died in her driveway. Yep the battery gave out.

The crappy thing about this story is...that just 3 weeks before when we had our new tires put on we told the mechanic that our car was dragging when we started it.

They checked the battery...YEAH...NOT REALLY...and said it was fine. Now 3 weeks later it IS the battery and we have a tow charge and the embarrassment of breaking down in a customers driveway of all places.

We lost our mechanic about a year ago and it is playing havoc to find anyone down here we can trust. Idiots...all..sad but FLORIDA true! emoticon

    Hubby and I always try to eat dinner at the dining room table. But I will admit I sometimes I have lunch in front of the TV. Usually watching the Dr. Oz show that I recorded the day before.

    Your Bill sounds like a patient man, as is my sister's husband. Mine . . . is not, lol.
I got the biggest giggle out of that cute potato!
Would love to see a Robin here, maybe soon!

    Eleni, you had a very interesting day. Bill seems so calm and I can just hear my sil if that had happened to him--he would be blaming everyone else if his truck quit on him. lol I always take a book with me too to read when in the car. Have a great weekend. emoticon
