What made me happy or filled with gratitude this week?
- My Pasadena son and DIL. They not only were so helpful at our party but I have had comments from most of the guests about how much they liked meeting them. They are gems. And they brought us avocados and music cds which I have enjoyed this week.
- My friends.
- Creating tasty meals at home while using up what we have.
MUSIC! Our son and DIL are seriously decluttering and have downloaded all their CD collection so - I am the lucky recipient of a large tote of CDs. They estimate 500 but we'll see how many there actually are. I'm going to slowly go through them, listen to what appeals to me and take all my rejects a few at a time to the Friends of the Library for selling. New to us music for free and low environmental impact!
This week's tally of the number reviewed is : I kept , donated , and threw out. Our CD containers are pretty full and i'm not sure what will happen for storage as I find more to add to our collection.
TAXES: Like everyone else I had to buckle down and collect all documentation for sending our tax info to the accountant. Spent a lot of time on that this week.
POODLE: The pup got her first new collar in 9 years! We bought her an adorable one decorated with squirrels when she came to us at 1 1/2 years old but it had gotten too tight. Little did we know then how squirrel crazy she was. We had a ton of squirrels and chipmunks for her enjoyment in Atlanta especially since there were two giant oak trees right outside the back door! Now she has a collar with roses on it which is appropriate for living near Pasadena and the Rose Parade. Not too many squirrels to see here and she still hasn't figured out what to think about rabbits LOL.
FUN: Went to my monthly women's club board meeting and book club. Went out to lunch with the group after book club which was, as always, fun.
CLEANING OUT THE FRIG: We are eating up leftovers/cleaning out the fridge. Plus there is the regular "shop for us" stuff I bought and there 4 very ripe avocados brought over by son and DIL. Don't want to waste anything, but also we are leaving on a 6 day trip soon to visit family and need the fridge cleaned out.
VISITING GRANDDAUGHTER: We are heading out in the middle of next week to visit our Berkeley family so I will see you all when we get back!
