Not a lot really blog-worthy happening around here, yet still I feel some sort of urge to blog again.
We recently took a short trip to Nashville (with a stop in Memphis for ribs at Rendezvous) and a stop on the way home for Tim to play golf at one of the Robert Trent Jones golf trail courses in Alabama (this one was in Muscle Shoals, he played the Fighting Joe course). After we got home, I got a bug about getting back into scrapbooking. I have done about 12 pages or more in the last few days. I finished up our last trip before this one to Nashville, the one we took two summers ago to Atlanta with Tim’s family. I also worked on some Christmas pages (I’m still 7 or 8 years behind though!). Along with scrapbooking apparently comes the urge to blog.
Tim is playing a lot of golf, and is tired, but so very happy to get to play a lot. He’s only missed two days in the last week (Tuesdays, his club Lake Caroline is closed, and he took off last Friday, so we could have date night). He’s left again today after work. Current temperature, 98 with a heat index of 101. Beau and I are happy to stay inside in the air conditioning.
This past weekend was fun, and sad at the same time. Sad because yesterday (6/24/12) was the tenth anniversary of Dodie passing away. I’m better about it than I used to be, but I do still miss her every day. Anway, the weekend: Friday night, we went out on a date, and tried a new restaurant. Krilakis in Ridgeland and we were both very pleased. Tim had a steak gyro and I had the lamb gyro and they were delicious! We both thought they were better than Kristos and Keifers. We tried one of their appetizers, a pita melt and it was like a double decker mozzarella sandwich on pita bread. Yummy, and next time we’re going to try the hummus, which I hope is equally as good! We also went to Sam’s Club after eating. Our refurbished Cuisinart coffee maker bit the dust while we were in Nashville, and we needed a new one. Along with various and sundry other things we tend to buy in Sam’s. Tim also got a couple of new shirts, including an orange polo, which tickled me no end
Saturday, he had a mid-morning tee time with friends, and I worked on scrapbook pages. When he got in mid afternoon, we went to Corner Bakery (near our house, so glad this one opened last December) and had sandwiches and caesar salads. We ran some other errands (he dropped me at Joann’s and Office Depot while he picked up a few things in Home Depot) and then came home. He promptly fell asleep on the couch, watching golf! Sunday was church, good as always. Our pastor is leaving on a mission trip and won’t be preaching at our church for 3 weeks. I hope the substitute guy is good! Our current series is called The Way of the Worshipper: A Summer in the Psalms and I’m really enjoying it. After church, we went to Waffle House and had waffles, eggs, bacon, etc. So good! I was stuffed the rest of the day. Guess what, Tim played golf again Sunday afternoon! After he got in, we watched some things on the DVR.
OK, I’m off to read (current book on my Kindle: A Necessary Deception, after which I hope to get the next Harry Potter from the library in an ebook loan, something my library added in April of this year) or maybe work on a scrapbook page.
