I had a wonderful day with my youngest daughter yesterday. She and little Andrew came to pick me up and she took me to a belated birthday lunch, as she works during the week.
Then we went to her house and Andrew ate his lunch. Then I played with him a bit. He doesn’t want to be on your lap long. He wants to walk around the perimeter of the seating area by holding onto furniture.
This is the happiest baby. So good-natured. Just smiles all the time.
Then K.C. and I went to run a few errands while his daddy put him down for his nap.
Woke up to more snow piling upon snow. The galvanized gardens were still covered from last weekend.
I guess I should have gotten a shovel and tried to shovel the big hump of snow that has been just outside the patio door since last week. I don’t think they will do things for you here on your patio.
K.C. and I went to Target, where I picked up a few things I had forgotten last time. Sweet potatoes and bananas, a staple around here.
I always have to look at the Clearance stuff, and look at the pillow I found for $5.08. Odd price, but a pretty plush pillow I was happy to buy!
It was nice to have her with me, as I could send her off to find something that was aisles away.
Then we went to my favorite nursery in Tulsa. It has lots of indoor plants and pretty pots. Along with bird houses and feeders, outdoor furniture. Pretty much anything you want.
This is a place that, on a weekday during the growing season, I love to just walk around and listen to all the chimes tinkling and the water fountains flowing. It is so relaxing and something I look forward to.
I am teaching my daughter about plants. How they purify the air naturally as well as look pretty. We picked out an airplane plant and a pothos and she picked out pretty blue ceramic pots for them.
I think they will be perfect on her huge kitchen island where there is so much light. And benefit from the humidity that is often found in the kitchen area where cooking is done.
This is the biggest kitchen island I have ever seen. Probably the size of my entire dining space plus some!
So I had a wonderful day yesterday! It did my heart good.
(Update: Finally my ex called this past week. Apparently his wife had been blocking all communication. I guess she did not realize the ramifications of such an act until I left a message that I was going to try to file a contempt charge.
He is having severe health problems; congestive heart failure. And he needs a defibrillator, but is once again without a job. I think he may be looking at having to retire before too long. He has been putting off getting the defibrillator, and I know that is not good.
Very hard to kick someone when they’re down. So am trying to figure out what to do. If he isn’t working, there is no money to go after.)
