Mission Complete

We began with breakfast at Bob Evans.  Now I have to tell you that we are Cracker Barrel fans but, Bob Evans’ Rise and Shine breakfast is just as good as anything that CB has to offer.  Therefore, Bob Evans moves up on our breakfast list, however, Out to Lunch in Harbor Springs still remains our number one favorite watering hole for breakfast.

Miss Judy J. managed to coral all the fabric needed to produce baby Fortner’s Paddington Bear quilt.  It’s gonna be a beaut, that’s for sure, but I can’t show you any pictures of her wares ‘cause it’s “top secret” and being kept under wraps.  I’d have to kill you if I showed you.  She, also, acquired some yarn and knitting needles for another “top secret” project.  Boy, with all this “top secret” stuff going on around here, I’m going to have to wear blinders and/or move into the basement. 

While we were at Ben Franklin’s, I found a painting book that I couldn’t live without.  One of the paintings is of the Pemaquid Point lighthouse in Maine.  The author lays out all the basics giving detailed instructions on painting the lighthouse.  There’s, also, detailed instruction on how to mix paints, paint trees, and skies.  She includes inventory lists of paints, paint brushes, and other painting paraphernalia that one needs to have on hand.  I already have most of the “stuff” but would like a Sta-Wet Palette that would enable me to keep my paints fresh for several days.

On our way home we stopped by Meijers to pick up some burger for today’s get together.  While we were there we saw some nice looking shish-ka-bobs that jumped right into our shopping cart.  We had those with some chicken fried zucchini smothered in left over spaghetti sauce.  The ka-bobs where as good as they looked.

We even got a short katt nap, did some reading, and played a little Bocce Ball.  It was a fun packed day for sure.  Today we’re just going to stay home and take it easy.  I have to reinstall the filtration system, Judy will probably start the baby Fortner quilt, and some Bocce Ball and reading will slip into our day as well.  John and Della will be visiting this afternoon and we’ll burn some hamburgers.  Judy’s going to make her world famous potato salad.  Fun, food, family, who could ask for a better combination. 

So, what’s up with the gas prices?  They’re taking a dramatic overnight increase – jumping as much as thirty cents a gallon.  Can you spell g-o-u-g-i-n-g?  It has been going on for years.  That should put a damper on any further economic growth.  It’s getting time to head back to the barn.  Oh well, it is what it is and there’s not much we can do about it except read and weep.

Be Sure To Hug Your Katt (or Dawg) and May God Bless - - - - - - - -
