Book Club Night

Just a normal day today. We had book club tonight. Our book was The Story of Lucy Gault. It is an interesting book. I don't think a lot of our gals appreciate the side of British Literature that this book portrayed. It was a bit depressing, but made for a good discussion.
We are reading Waiting For Snow In Havana next month.

Florida in January

The kids got to go swimming over New Year's. The water felt like a nice warm bath. It was around 45 degrees outside the pool. Oh, the life!!!

I am a GEEK!

Well, I am officiallt a GEEK!

I have managed to get 2 Dell computers up and running after a couple of "hair ripping" days. My hubby, of course was out of town and he got tired of hearing me stress. Those BASIC computer classes just aren't the same as they used to be. My A doesn't do much good. I find that it is by trial and error, and when it starts working, you are so happy, but don't have any clue as to how you just did the step that worked. I have an admiration for people who work on computers.
They have to have more patience than Job himself.
My hubby has that kind of patience. He can fiddle with something for hours. It is done in a meticulous manner working fine.I would be jumping off a bridge by the time it was over.

Santa brought Nick a Lacrosse stick, but it had not been strung. Todd bought string, read the pictures(can you do that?) and strung that head himself without ever seeing how it was done. I am very proud of that side of him. I hope that my son will be handy like that one day.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!!

2008 went out with a bang. We had a very relaxed Christmas at home this year. Nick and I recieved new computers!! Yea!! My computer was 6 years old and was dying a slow death. Maybe now with this great, FASTER computer, I will have the time to sit down. THose of you that know me are laughing now, because it takes me a while to make the time to get on the computer for pleasure.

I had a fantastic trip to Julie's in December with some fun girlfriends. Julie is the "hostess with the mostess" for sure. She had wonderful naskets for us. The theme was" A Dicken's Christmas."

We ate at Loveless Cafe. I got my jars of blackberry preserves, THE BEST IN THE WORLD, by the way. A fun day of shopping in downtown Franklin. It is such a quint town. Every woman wants to live there, once they see it.

The children are back at school, and things are getting back to normal. I am still putting away Christmas decorations. It's fun putting them up, and tiring taking them down.

May everyone have a very blessed 2009!
