Day of Rest (For the Most Part!)

Marilyn and I just got back from a 'quick' trip to the store (Freddies). That was our first time going out of the house all day long.

It was supposed to be a rainy and nasty day, but it didn't turn out that way. But it didn't much matter to us what it was like, seeing as we were just lying around resting (or actually sleeping!) for the most part. Hahaha.

Got a LOVELY email from sister Sue's friend Larry today. He's a very articulate man and very kind! I think he should get a blog and actually USE IT TO BLOG! (Often I'm just getting someone to have a blog so it's easier to read mine -- or reply to it.) I'm not sure WHY people are resistant about blogging. It's certainly a GREAT way to track what's going on in your life. AND I know others use my blog to keep track of what I'm up to...

Marilyn and I DID stay up most of the night, last night. We often do that when we have the chance, as we LOVE being up all night long! But it does make it hard to get up and function during the day after...

I've been doing a little bit of writing. Nothing to use for anything. Just stretching my writing muscles, I guess. Hahaha. I do enjoy it, though. I enjoy writing more and more, it seems. And I like being a bit poetic now. Anyway, that's a total aside.

I'm very excited about our road trip!!! Marilyn explained that we're taking the scenic route, which we haven't been on since CHILDHOOD! I seriously can't wait. It's a beautiful drive. I remember the 'feeling' of the drive like it was yesterday! I've probably idealized it quite a bit, but I remember sitting in grade school after the trip and touching this ring I got on the trip and just thinking so fondly of the beauty of that ride...

Marilyn and I watched three different Hallmark Garage Sale Mystery shows today. Very entertaining!!! We love the premise and the characters! Well worth a watch.

And we're still hung up on the series The Middle -- and love those characters, too. Maybe you have to be from a family background like that to relate. We always liked Roseanne, too. I remember having a rather heated exchange years ago with a co-worker (not at the festival) who just thought Roseanne was an awful, trashy, nasty show. She went on and on! And I couldn't help thinking that there were so many elements of the show that reflected my own life. Oh well!

Well, I think this is good enough for today. Good night, all!
