Wednesday Again

I slept very well last night! The house was cool so maybe that had something to do with it. Anyhow I feel rested.

I have been working on my Christmas cards. I don't send out many but I refuse to quit sending them out. Last evening I printed off the envelopes for my class newsletter. When I finally get it finished, I will try to send it out as an attachment to e-mail to those classmates who have e-mail. I will have to send it out one at a time because it's eight pages long. Even at that, some may not be able to open attachments.

I have one classmate who remarried last May and she wants to contribute to the newsletter so she is holding up my being able to get it sent in time for Christmas.  Maybe I'll send her a Christmas card and remind her.

Today I will just piddle around. I have the apartment clean, have most of my Christmas cards and Christmas letters done. Maybe I will get the cookies made at last since I have no other plan for the day.

More later...

Sure enough. I got peanut butter cookies made and Bob came by and had a cup of coffee and  a cinnamon roll. Then he had a cookie. He will be back shortly for lunch. We will have the chicken tetrazzini again and applesauce with a veggie and mixed fruit with banana for dessert. We will also have a cookie or two. :)

Tomorrow we will have meatloaf and baked potatoes with a veggie and salad. Maybe we will have pudding and cookies for dessert.  

More even later...

We did have our chicken tetrazzini for lunch and I had just enough left to take to Marilyn R with a biscuit.  We had a short visit.

About 3:00  my daughter called. She had made up her sweet and sour meat balls and had too many. She was having a staff party. And she wanted to give me the rest.  I quickly took Marilyn her dish and took off for Leslie's. I got there about 3:30 and then she had some scalloped potatoes she also wanted to share with me. So, I got the sweet and sour meatballs (which I will bake this noon) and scalloped potatoes. I will put a veggie with them and Bob can bring a salad.  We will have pudding and cookies for dessert. We will have the meatloaf tomorrow with baked potatoes, a veggie and some more salad.  Then we will have the rest of the pudding and cookies. Wow! I will have lots of food to share with Marilyn R. too.

I had looked at our Wal Mart and the extra large Wal Mart in Bartlesville for cranberry colored cloth napkins. Neither store had any. While I was eight miles from Independence when I left Leslie's, I decided to give their Wal Mart a try. So I drove on to that store and what do you know! They had them! So now I have four. I had bought the last two at our Wal Mart a week or so ago.

Time was flying by this time and I had agreed to meet Marilyn L at the Presbyterian church at 5:00 to help her set up for the PINCH meeting. By this time it was almost 4:00 and I still had to drive back to Coffeyville and put that food in my frig. Luckily, I had already put the party perk in the car and my fancy crackers for the meat and cheese tray Marilyn was bringing for the meeting.

I got to the church at 5:00 and helped Marilyn put together the room we were going to use for the meeting. The meeting, which was to be an hour long, turned into two hours in length. Then I stayed to help Marilyn clean up. I got home at 8:00 or soon after and took my bath and placated my annoyed cat by sitting with her in the recliner until 9:00.

Whew! I was exhausted! So I went to bed.
