These pictures have nothing to do with this post. They are what I was working on yesterday when I finished at the studio for the day.
I had no opportunity to use my camera today. None, nada, zip.
First the Salvation Army service.......TWO HOURS LONG.
I am not kidding. I am waiting for my angel wings to arrive. They should be along shortly.
Then on to lunch. I had mozzarella, tomato empanadas, with a red pepper aioli sauce. It was an appetizer, but it was just enough. And it was delish.
I wanted a BEER, but I practiced some restraint, which I might add is highly overrated.
My mother talked loud enough for everyone in the restaurant to hear her. But since she was relaying a story about her childhood in the Salvation Army, a story I have heard several times, I figured that the other diners could hear it at least this once. Sharing the joy.
Sounded fair to me.
Then to the JC Penney beauty salon, where my mother got her hair done. I am entirely shocked that the lady doing her hair has any ears left at all, since my mother talked for the ENTIRE time she was in the chair. Loud. There weren't many other people in the salon, so I let her rip without reminding her that everyone is not deaf, like she is.
I got a quick hair cut....no blow dry styling for me, thanks.
Then on to the grocery store, where my mother zipped around on her motorized cart, nearly knocking people down. At the check out, I asked her why she didn't have any lunch stuff in her cart...............along with the candy, cookies, ice cream, tapioca, and marshmallows.
She gave me a look that would kill. I dropped it.
I know when I am beat.
I came home and made dinner, and took Roy for our walk......the first peaceful moment of the day.
Then I said Hallelujah. For real.
Welcome to my world.
