Short blog today…and…No, Maxine is not in THIS blog….She will be featured in a photo layout tomorrow…I promise.
Well yesterday was another typical Illinois winter love fest…A high of 10 degrees, but at least we had sunshine. Just to throw a big” WOW” into the mix, the National Weather Service has issued the dreaded wind chill advisory from 9PM tonight until noon tomorrow. They are predicting wind chills to –14………I ask you, who has more fun than we Winter Illinoisans”?? I’m so excited I could just vomit.
Yesterday I had coffee with my Ya Ya , Mary… We went to Micky D’s for the $.75 Senior coffee. It still hacks me off that those young little honeys behind the counter never even QUESTION my “seniorship”…” Someday I’m just gonna say, “Hey!! Believe it or not, sweetheart, I used to look like you..See what ya got to look forward to??”..Boy, that would shut ‘em up in a BIG hurry.
Since it was such an exciting day, I decided to do some baking/cooking. I made some Oatmeal cookies to take to Indy with us this weekend..Oh yea, I forgot to mention that McGuyver and I are going to Carmel, Indiana to see our youngest daughter, Chris , and family…I think McGuyver’s plumbing skills are needed at the house they are renovating..Chris’s hubby needs help moving a toilet…Man oh man…we Caves know how to have a good time, eh? Fear not, there will definitely be beer and wine involved after the sewer job is done…
…Left are some of my Oatmeal cookies…Right, that stuff that looks like someone just “ralphed” is my crockpot full of chicken breasts, wine, mushroom soup and sour cream…I KNOW it looks sketchy!! I just put it IN the crockpot…wait till I scoop it our tonight about 7PM!! Being in the “hausfrau” kind of mood, I also par -boiled some Italian Turkey Sausage for tomorrow night’s entrée. I like to prep my dinners,….so I can enjoy cocktail hour and relax….
OK…now for the insanity that’s been going on here in our house…Since some of you urged me to enter the Maxine contest, I threw some stuff together to see if I could really resemble her in my ensemble…After studying Maxine’s picture, I realized I needed a few more props to complete the look…Poor McGuyver had to be the photographer….The hardest part is keeping a straight face…I have a few more “glamour shots” to do before I will post some…
We are leaving Friday morning for Indy and will be back Monday. We are going to help our preggie daughter with their renovations ….Right now they are living in an apartment while working on it. I will take lots of photos and may ,or may ,not post a blog over the weekend.. We cannot wait to see our youngest grandson…and his “baby bump” brother who is due April 10th..
I PROMISE MAXINE WILL APPEAR IN A BLOG HERE TOMORROW..SHE NEEDS A LITTLE MORE WORK.
