Got my hair cut and colored last night. Stopped by the used book store traded some back and purchased more. Then my favorite treat is going to Trader Joe's a couple doors down. Love to shop and wander through seeing what is a new healthy food to try.
Having company next weekend...and they are on a no wheat diet kick for awhile. They always have some new adventure their daughter has them on. Unfortunately they usually don't last long. So trying to put together a grocery list for their food preferences. Really not too hard...just veggies, fruits and meats. Trying to think of creative ideas... They are dear old friends and it will be good to spend some time with them. They came up for daughter's wedding but that isn't a time to visit....so they are coming back. They are hoping to see the beautiful leaves on the trees. It should be a good time as ours are starting to turn colors.
Mom did well at Curves Monday night. She called to see if we were going on Tuesday. Told her no mom we told Brenda we would be there Wednesday evening. She quicly forgets. Amazing how a little physical activity has spurred her on. Yesterday she got out and worked in her yard clearing yard waste from her flowers. She lives in a retirement community and now she's upset that they haven't picked up her cuttings. She can be impatient! She has talked for weeks about doing it...I think she was hinting at us to come and do it....I am amazed she did it. Then our son was going to be here by himself last night...and we encouraged him to take Grandma to dinner....and they went out together. He had a good time and I'm sure she enjoyed herself. They took a drive after dinner and she loves doing that. Warms my heart when my grown children take an interest in their difficult Grandma and can make lasting memories with her.
Off to seize the day!
