I love my Fridays with Mother!!!
We picked her up and headed to Walmart where Louis Dean had to go in to buy some white spray paint.
This is because he went to buy some yesterday and picked up a large can with a white lid and I guess he ASSUMED it was white spray paint! It wasn't! It was a pipe marker with a weird sprayer and totally NOT what I needed! SO in he went once again to get some white spray paint! He came out with 2 cans of the right stuff and 1 can of what he THOUGHT was primer! NOT! It was flat white spray paint.
I have ribbed him so much about this!!!
While HE was wandering around Walmart I hopped into the back seat with Mother and she and I had a very nice chat!!! She said it was the first time in a long time that we've TALKED!!!
Mothers are pretty awesome because all I did was tell her what a terrible time I'm having with my allergies and how I don't feel well and gripe GRIPE gripe!!!! She, in turn, told me about how hard it is to be on a walker and how she didn't feel well and gripe GRIPE gripe!!
When we were through we laughed and hugged each other and said how much BETTER we felt now!!!
Then we went to Cotton Patch Cafe for lunch!
We had fun taking some funny face pictures and cutting up!
Mother ALWAYS gets the BIG bowl of chicken and dumplings!
Louis Dean ALWAYS gets the chicken fried steak!
When I am with him he gets the LUNCH portion!
When I'm NOT he orders the BIG one!!
He wasn't all that glad I was there today!
Mother does well on her walker but it sure isn't easy!
Back to Nita's and just LOOK at her new table!!!
Guess where it came from??
Her husband found it out on a curb for the trash!!!
What a treasure find!!
This chart of inspirational sayings is something Mother has had for years and years!
She asked me to read them to her and then she gave the chart to me!
We had a good visit!
Louis Dean tells Mother every week when we leave -
"Now NO dancing or staying out late!!! No drinking or honky tonking!"
And SHE always says, "Why NOT???"
As soon as we got home I changed into comfy clothes and crawled into the guest room bed and took a good little NAP!!
Yesterday Louis Dean took our hall closet doors down and since we didn't have the white spray paint to do the metal trim all I was able to do was Kiltz the doors (which is just inexpensive panelling.)
So today we got them painted and hopefully he can hang them back up tomorrow!
Then it was time to sit on the driveway and enjoy this 80 degree weather we're having!
