I am packed up and ready to go!!
Basket with wine, glasses, corkscrew, crackers, cheese - check!
Lightweight jacket (since rain is in the forecast) - check!
Laptop -Duh!! - check!
Suitcase packed tighter than a drum - check!!
Purse with essentials AND a small strapped wallet to carry when I leave the purse in the car - check!
Bronze bag holding makeup and toiletry bag and books and hairbrushes - check!
Large tin full of Texas Trash (every last bit I have left!) by request from Deanie - check!
By the way, all the bags, basket, and tin came from Goodwill!
It took all afternoon to pack since I was giving such careful thought to what I'm taking since I didn't want to forget anything!
We left Irving by 3:30 stopping at the post office to drop off the package for my DNA testing.
I'm not sure what I hope to find from this but I decided I wanted to at least know a little about where I came from - which may be a surprise since I have no idea who my father was.
We shopped Trader Joe's on Hulen and Half Price Books before going to Nita's and Mike's to spend the night.
Louis Dean needed a book and found two!
Paul Harvey will be a read aloud book and Cheaper by the Dozen is one of his favorites and will be his night time before bed book.
Talk about perfect timing - we arrived at Nita's just as she was pulling into the garage!
I brought salad and Brownie Bites and Lemon Bars (Trader Joe's) and Nita had Cousins BBQ Baked Potatoes for dinner! Plus wine! Nita and I are both wine drinkers! We will also be room mates on our Siblings Trip!! Wine drinkers stick together!!
Nita and Mike have THE most interesting home full of treasures!!
What a treat we had this evening!
Nita was gifted a Victrola from the 1920's and we wound it up and played Perry Como singing 'Till the End of Time.'
It's always an adventure when we come visit them!
We have had a nice relaxing evening.
Dinner and visiting.
Tai Chi for Nita and me followed by wine sitting out on her back porch in the cool of the night.
This has been the warmest February since 1957!
Not one freeze this month so far!
Still, we had light blankets around us as we sat and sipped.
Deanie and Lonnie will be here in the morning and we will drive down to San Antonio for a few days. We are all so excited!!
I think they will be here by 9:00 so I best say good night now since I'm not normally up that early!!
