But it was a good day. Weather was perfect (my heart goes out to those in Iowa and California - and prayers go up...)
One can roller-skate in shorts and sleeveless shirts then go up the mountain in about 30 minutes and ski! Can you imagine??
The 'post person' ...don't know if it's a he or a she......I mean, I never actually see them deliver ...I'm at work......not like I couldn't tell if I saw them..if it was a he or a she...well, sometimes you can't tell.
But I like to think I could...but I wouldn't swear to it...
....OK - "whomever" brought me 2 packages in 2 days - one from my sweet-sailor-talking-adopted-niece (she wasn't really adopted - I just like to think of her like my niece - actually I think it was she that said she wished she had a Grandma like me and I said "Ohhhhh no - maybe your Aunt" - then we decided I was Auntie Utah - except that sound like I'm totally against Utah -which I am totally not...)
Sooo, one from Debby in PA (can't spell Pennsylvania..) Oh wait! I just did!
Just look what goodies she sent me:
Earlier, my new boss- a sweet young girl who happens to like a LOT of the same stuff I like - brought in these roses from her neighborhood for me and a lovely arrangement for the 2 other girls in the office - mine, of course, was the biggest and the prettiest. Age does have it's privledges...
Oh wait...I'm not done yet...I get home today with my roses form work, and start to read my books from Debby when I see another package - this one form my sister Kathy - and it contains something that is precious to me...no....not a creme brulee all to myself..bettter!
She sent me my Daddy's collection of Norman Rockwell teensy plates that he collected (thus the term...collection...helllloooo) over several years from one of those "Franklin Mint" thingys. They even have their own display racks, but they were too big to send - she'll just have to hand deliver them to me I guess....then we'll just have to have a nice visit I guess....
Each stack is ten plates - all different - and with the paperwork to "prove authenticity"
... I stacked them by counting the first ten - then making the other stacks match up - just like they do in Las Vegas with the poker chips!!
Not that I would know this first hand of course - but I watch a lot of TV - yeah, especially the "Learning Channel"...yeah that's it...
And at about 4:30 the BIG boss walks out..(I guess that makes my boss the "boss-ette") and says, "It's Friday...and anyone who is a Dad, or who has a Dad, or KNOWS a Dad...go home!" So, we got to leave early - on a Friday - to beat the traffic -how great is that??
Took the pups in for their rabies shots, Doc said their heartbeats are perfect (!) and then we went to dinner at Iggy's - had a GREAT Asian Pork BBQ Salad - they come in 2 sizes - so you can totally be good -get a half-salad and look like a dainty-little-watching calories-girl... then still have room for cheesecake!!
Actually, I didn't have room for the cheesecake, so we stopped at DQ and I got a Butterscotch-dipped Dilly bar - Mmmm..summer memories from when I was a kid in Arizona and we'd walk to the DQ...'course, we'd have to eat really really fast or it would melt - got a whole new perspective on brain freeze!!
OK, so I'd better go to bed if I have to be Miss Smarty-Pants tomorrow at the museum...
