Today Mother had a lot of fun! I have the pictures to PROVE it!!!
We were right on time to pick her up at the beauty shop!
Our first stop was Ross for Less where she found a few things!
THIS top was NOT one of them!
Our 'brunch' place was IHOP!
Mother said, "But he doesn't LIKE it!!" while we were on our way there.
I assured her he WOULD!
Louis Dean is always teasing Mother!!
Good times! Coffee all around!
Louis Dean had a BALL because he got a lot of extra attention from our waitress!
He's a wimp and could NOT find the seam to get his utensils out!
Mother LOVED her cheese blintzes!
I think they BOTH liked their meals!!!
I love this series of photos!
She was wanting to make sure Louis Dean liked HIS food!!
She ate every.single.bite.
Louis Dean actually brought half of HIS home!
He is now a big fan of IHOP! At least as long as we get BRENDA as our waitress!!
Mother was happy with her new tops.......
as well as those reed infusers she was wanting.
Her bedroom window has a whole line of these across her window sill.
She said she NEEDED them and they DO smell good!!
When I picked Mother up this morning I came prepared with a recent pic of the quads to show Donna, her stylist. You remember last week I did NOT have one! She loves to show off that SHE is a GREAT-Grandma to QUADRUPLETS!!
Amber was born on June 6th and shares my mother's birthday as does one of her great grandsons!
After we took Mother home we spent another hour and half showing her all the recent pictures and videos on my laptop. She was a happy camper!!
After leaving Mother we headed over to visit Charlie and Deanie!
They are always SO much fun!!!
Charlie has learned how to push Louis Dean's buttons!
We all visited and laughed and laughed!!
More good times!!
This week I got TWO sister visits in!!
Tuesday with Luann and Friday with Deanie!!
Nita, I MISS you!!!
I DID take a couple of pics at Nita's.
I love going to her house every Friday - even though she is at work and we seldom see each other!
There's usually something new every week.
Today I noticed this cool drink tray.....
and this canister.
Nita has SUCH an interesting home!!!
After leaving our house at 9:15 this morning we returned home at 5:00!
I gave Lucy a much needed bath and took her for a walk.
It was 74 degrees today and the low tonight is 58!
Not bad for January 31st!
I was motivated to give Lucy a bath - this time a nice warm one in Louis Dean's bathtub - because of what I bought at Ross for Less!! A new cushy comfy dog bed! Her old one is black and showed every single one of all those shed white dog hairs!! I also bought one to fit her kennel and another one to keep at Amber's in the guest room since she sleeps in there when we spend the night! Her old black one has been washed and is in the dryer now. It will 'live' in our camper. So this ONE dog now has FOUR beds! Sounds about right!
Especially if you consider that our cat prefers to drink her water from wine glasses!
I do believe I have REDEEMED myself and am pretty sure I was a GOLDEN child today!!
