Went to visit Laura on Thursday.
She made a delicious fritatta for dinner.
She had to work on Friday, but the driving weather was going to be better on Thursday and thought I'd just have a free day on Friday but I did some grocery shopping and made a batch of Chicken Tortilla Soup
On Saturday we went to the Northborough Wegmans for lunch as well as grocery shopping. The food court is amazing. It's like going to the buffet restaurant on a cruise ship. There were so many different stations with so many different types of food. AND every item had a calorie count with it. Once you got your food, you could go to any number of rooms to eat it in and some even had large screen TVs. At the end of our shopping, at the far end of the store from the food court is the liquor store and I got to do a little wine tasting.
While at that plaza we also went to Kohl's, Ulta and Michael's. Next to Wegmans, we spent the most time at Kohl's and I bought a new pair of shoes and boots. I am defintely having a shoe binge lately.
On Sunday Laura went to Zumba and I went to Yoga at the BSC and then we went to her office.
At night we watched the Academy Awards and the next day I was off to Greta's for Hunter's birthday.
I'm at Laura's. Been here since Thursday and haven't had to take even one Ibuprophen. Am I allergic to my house? Am I involved in some psychosomatic illness? Or when I go home will I find that I am just fine? This is my story:
Just when you thought you could relax, you notice that the footrest on the chair is crooked and won't go down. Chair repair team to the rescue. We turned the chair upside down and found where the screw was that lost all it's parts that hold it all together. After searching for the right size tools and torturing ourselves trying to get it together we almost did . . . then the washer fell and we couldn't find it. Next step, find another washer. Washer found, another attempt, another lost washer.
We finally got it all put together and by accident, after dropping something else, found where all the other pieces went. So we taped them to the underneath of the chair and I'm posting it here so that we remember.
Larry saw this recipe in the Endless Vacation magazine. For some reason he's always pointing out recipes for me to make. When I tell him he should make it he just sort of walks away, now why is that? Anyway, I decided I would make it for him this weekend since I am deserting him for a few days next week to visit Laura and Greta.
I found the recipe online http://www.endlessvacation.com/TravelTactics/In-Vermont,-Stick-to-Ribs.aspx so I won't have to type it :-) Picture will be added after I make it.
Was looking for something else and then found this great site that has all kinds of information and just loved this quote by Benjamin Franklin.
"Where there's marriage without love, there will be love without marriage."
