Spending the entire day, which was a glorious fall day, with my sweetie. We had lunch at Panera, went to a couple of open houses, went to Barnes-n-Noble for some new books, to Pier One where I got a new snowman for my collection, and then coffee at Starbucks. I made a great dinner and am sitting here tired and happy.

We had our first snow a few days ago (it had been too cold to snow)- so it seems to have warmed up a lot.

We got our snow tires/studs put on just in time to have a safe car for the winter!

I don't have to go to work until 5 pm, which gives me several hours to do homework as soon as I stop procrastinating on 3FC :)

The boyfriend made coffee for me before he left for work this morning - and surprised me with English toffee creamer because I'd been homesick for England lately! SUPER nice of him! It's a good day!

11-10-2009, 09:20 PM
Talked to my sister a half hour ago....doing ok from her chemo treatment this week.

Hospital called to go over final details for my surgery on Thursday.

Yesterday, a couple of :angel:s brought us a present ~ they went and picked some veggies at a local farmers (more :angel:s) and brought us a big box of large carrots -- I'm sure there is enuff for all winter!

So I washed some of them up today; and we had some for dinner, and I am putting some up in the freezer, and a few in the crisper too, and some are in our temporary cold room (our porch). What a great blessing this was ... may GOD bless them all in return ... :D
