Visit with a friend from Georgia, and More

The work week is over.   I am taking tomorrow off as a “workitis” day.   I figure a four day weekend is better than a three day weekend.   I really need to tackle some of the STUFF.   Maybe there is something to the lists that Marikay uses.  I think that I will try some lists of my own.  Thank you Marikay.  I will start in the morning when it is cooler.

I met with an old friend’s daughter for dinner on Monday after work.  I hadn’t seen Jenny in maybe 22 years.  At that time she graciously let me stay in her room while I was visiting her mother in Jonesboro GA.  She is all grown up and has a family of her own. Her youngest will be in high school this year.  My how time flies!  She travels with her job and is here in Sacramento for the week.  Hopefully we ca get together again before she leaves on Friday.    She and her mom are some of the people that I will visit when I get out there on the road.

This is Jenny                                       This is her mom, Mary                                      

They sure do look alike, don’t they?

I’m also including a picture of Angel while she was intently  watching NATURE, a TV program on PBS, about Snow Leopards.     She was so intent that she didn’t even respond when I called her.


She wants to chase the cats next door, so maybe she thought she could chase them too.

Three uneventful days at work, although I was able to start a watercolor painting.  In the early morning it wasn’t too busy, so  I could work on it in between calls.  Needless to say Wednesday just flew by.   My supervisor told me about a craft fair that they are thinking about having close to the holidays, where we can sell things that we have made as a fund raiser.  We would donate a percentage of what we make to a charity.


It’s almost finished.  I used a picture that Judy, Travels with Emma, took (with her permission).  I really have to do more.   I also have to  put some things together that I have already done to build up some inventory. 

There is so much to do, with all the sorting, tossing, yard work, painting the walls and ceilings, sometimes I think that I won’t have enough time to do it all.  I just have to get more focused.  I’d better get started on those lists.  

Hope that you all have a wonderful weekend, and Gypsy,  I hope that you have good news at the doctors visit tomorrow.

Thank you all for visiting

Susan and Angel
