So my sister, Barbara, visited me for a few days this week. We had fun working on cards together. She even surprised me with a beautiful thank-you card, which she made right in front of me! And I was so focused on Ron's birthday card that I didn't even notice. Yeah, I'm not oblivious or anything. Much.
Anyway, we got quite a bit accomplished--I have a Christmas card design in mind and so does Barbara; I got Ron's card done and so did Barbara. But she also made a very cute card for our grand-nephew, Tristan, and I haven't yet. And she made the card for me. So, in terms of being productive, she has me beaten by a long shot!
While Barbara was here we had a couple of really good meals. That's because we went out to eat. I had basically nothing in my pantry or frig; just a few frozen entrees, (which we also gagged down for a meal). But we did enjoy eating at Kitchen 56 the day she came out. And we had a wonderful dinner at the Deli on Tuesday. Thursday we had a delicious meal at the Dhaba. However, I forgot to take my ranitidine before that dinner, silly me, and then I ate some super spicy chutneys. I promptly got a massive case of indigestion. Oh, mama, was I in pain that night. Not the fault of the restaurant, mind you. The fault of the diner, namely me. Geesh! Will I never learn? The next day Barbara and I ate at the Deli for lunch with our sister, Merrilyn. Another really good meal! Of course, if you sprinkle in the toast, bananas, and a veggie burger from Burger King that we consumed, you could make a case for some pretty crappy eating, too. Sorry, Barbara! I also need to thank my sweet sister for allowing me to show her my photos from the Maui trip Gary and I took in September. :^)
