Balloons, Wine, Cheese, Chocolate…..Just About Perfect
Good Sunday morning! I had a wonderful birthday yesterday. LL and I worked around the house. I had him fixing a few things. 🙂 A girl has to take advantage of her birthday and get some things crossed off her Honey Do List. I have had a leak under my kitchen sink for weeks. Of course it could not be an easy fix. I needed a new garbage disposal.
So off to Lowes LL and I went. While in town, we went to the pet store to pick up food for Yoda. They were having adoption day. Oh LL kept a close eye on me. LOL. Actually, I fell in love with a one year old dog that looked a little like Reggie. Her name was Buttons and I really think Kris or Mom should adopt her. We then stopped at Bed Bath and Beyond and I bought myself a gift. A bath pillow. Last week, I had the opportunity to take baths in a beautiful claw tub that was comfortable and had a beautiful view out on the bay. Well I could not recreate the view, but I love taking baths. In fact, I take one in a huge tub with jets. But the tub is not comfortable just to relax in so I rarely use the jets. In fact, I think it had been over a year since I used it. So making the most of my tub was on my agenda.
Here’s the thing. When you don’t run the jets for a year, even when you keep your tub clean, the jets, crevices, etc. get very gross. So 2 hours of scrubbing, running water with vinegar in it, running the jets, rinse, repeat. Comfortable pillow in place. I took a like long bubble bath. Stupid me decided to then run the jets. Well this reminded me of a Doris Day movie when soap dumped into the pool. The whole room practically filled with suds……and it was heavenly. 🙂
We then met my family for dinner. I think there was 14 of us. It was so much fun. I would show you pictures but I don’t think a single one was taken. Kris set it up. Bertha attended. Bertha is a stuffed character Kris and I have been giving each other back and forth for years. On the table, Karen put a bouquet of purple balloons and gave me a Red Lobster gift card. Katie, my niece, painted me a beautiful picture. I will take a picture and post it soon. Kris gave me a huge gift sack with all my favorite things like wine, dark chocolate, a beautiful basket that will be perfect for LL’s chips and salsa. Kris also made my favorite cake. (yes I had “issues” but it was worth it. If was a great night and I felt very special.
Today, if Kane does not have to work, I hope to see him, Lisa and Brantley. Other than that, no real plans for the day. But I am sure it will be a blessed Sunday and I hope you have a blessed Sunday too.
