Last night I was so tired when I went to bed. We were nestled under the covers when Louis Dean said, "I forgot to rub your feet!!" He insisted we get up and go back to the den where I could stretch out on the sofa and he rubbed my feet for a good 15 minutes. I went right to sleep after we got back into bed.
Then this morning I had set the alarm for the ungodly hour of 8:00!!!
This is a NORMAL hour for most people but we are not the average!
Louis Dean brought cups of coffee to bed and we held hands as we sipped.
By 9:00 - or shortly thereafter - I was on my way to pick up Ruth Ann and we headed off to The Legacy Salon in Fort Worth to pick up Mother. We arrived a little early and I was able to get in a visit with Donna, Mother's wonderful hair dresser. Or is that stylist? Whatever she is, she is AMAZING!!
We had a really good Friday together!!!
Lunch at La Madeleine's!! Eating here is not just LUNCH!!! It's like a mini vacation to France!!!
We lingered long and ate every bite!!!
The manager there just left the Irving location and he stopped by our table several times to chat.
The patrons there are going to LOVE him!!! We sure did!
We stopped at Hobby Lobby and Mother strolled the isles before going to Deanie's for a nice visit!
I forgot to take a single picture because I was in a blissful state!!!
When we arrived, she had everything out and ready for a wonderful foot massage.
I do believe she is a real treasure!!! Pure and simple.
Deanie has been really sick for a really long time with stomach issues.
This morning she had yet another test to determine what the problem is.
And yet she came home, set out all the foot massage things and even printed off reflexology charts so Louis Dean will know how to give even better massages!!!
I bet she rubbed my feet for 30 minutes while we visited!
When I arrived, I could not walk without limping. When I left, my gait was normal!
Thank you, Deanie!!!!
We spent the late afternoon and early evening on our driveway sipping wine and snacking on a cheese and cracker plate with Ruth Ann and our neighbor, Joe. He just so happens to be a distant cousin of mine and this was the first time Mother had met him!
Irene (mother's sister) was married to P.R. Warren who was Joe's daddy's brother.
Let me tell you. it is a small, small world!!!
Mother laughed and talked and we all had such a good Friday evening!
Love the Trader Joe's cheeses!!!!
Cheers!!! It's been a long time since Mother had even a small glass of wine but we celebrated Friday together in a wonderful way!!!
Louis Dean held court - as usual!!
We celebrated lots of things today!!
The tree trimmers came today and our elm tree is now DONE!!!!
The clean up will begin tomorrow!
In the meantime.....
I watered tonight and smelled the roses and the honeysuckle.....and the mint and the rosemary.....
I have loved every minute of this wonderful day starting with the most important moment -
holding hands with my husband!
