So. lets see.

The weekend.

A little bit of this.
A little bit of that.

Do you ever feel like a pin ball?

Bouncing from thing to thing. That's how I feel. Not in a bad way.
Just all over the place.

We went to Applebees for dinner on Friday night. It's been a long time since I had one of their Oriental Chicken Salads.
Long. Time. Say....ten years.

And it's different now.

Remember when it had a creamy white dressing.

It's brown and I actually felt like they forgot to dress it.

I guess that circus has left town.

Saturday Katie wanted to stay in her pajamas all day. I said she could.
She baked cookies by herself. Kind of. I played helicopter mom.

She changed for church. We have standards.

We went to the mall after church.

When I was young. The mall wasn't open on Saturday night.

I bought new dish towels and wash cloths on a whim. They are white and blue and yellow.
The fact that I don't have any clean wash cloths in the drawer may have influenced me.

I watched Picture Perfect with Jen Anniston and Jay Mohr. I always like this movie.
I especially like the princess watch part.

Sunday morning I awoke to a note from our friend Di. Her lovely mom slipped peacefully into the arms of the Lord
on Saturday. Please remember Di in your prayers at this sad time.

I cried as I wrote Di back in the morning.

My husband wonders about me.
It's hard for him to imagine feeling so deeply for ones friends.


Then there was basketball and play practice and the sag awards.

I didn't like the dresses at all. I think everyone is saving their best dresses for the Oscars. At least I hope so.


What do you think of this dress on 14 year old Hailee Steinfeld?

I like it. On her it works. She's a very sweet girl.

Katie's beautiful cookies.

Do you know how many things there are to learn in making cookies?

Where the stuff is in the cupboards.
How to measure out brown sugar.
How to level off spoons and measuring cups.
How to pour into a tiny spoon.
How to mix stiff dough.
How to scoop out the right amount of dough.
How to place them on a pan.
How to work the timer.
How to clean up.

Yikes! That's just the things I can think of this morning.
Baking cookies wore me out.

But they turned out beautifully, didn't they?

Much better than the Curried Chicken I made for dinner.

Happy last day of January.
Winter is on the way out....well...except for the snow storm that is coming our way....
But it is light until 5:00 now...and that makes me hope.

Love you guys!
