Remember last weekend I found out I had won the quilt that the local Animal Shelter was raffling. I bought tickets from Corinne ages ago but had never seen the quilt. It was finally delivered to my office on Friday afternoon.
Isn't it gorgeous --- I'll put it on my bed after I finish Spring Cleaning. (Whenenver that will be!) This has been a crazy weekend so far here at "Grand Central Station". That is what I call our house. We always have a lot of company and seem to have even more since Mom got sick. Its nice that everyone wants to help out and check in but sometimes............Enough already!
I walked in the door Friday afternoon (after a very busy work week) to find 8 people sitting around the kitchen. We have 2 living rooms and a den but in Nova Scotia everyone sits in the kitchen! I was tired and hungry and not overly impressed. Naturally none of them wanted to stay for supper but they didn't want to leave the kitchen so I could make supper! When they all finally wandered out a little later I thought I'll cheat and order Chinese. Its quick and I'm starving.
I picked up the order, brought it home and it smelled so good (did I mention I was starving?) and there is no friggin rice! Arrrgh but by now I don't care, too hungry and fed up, so I'll just eat what I have. Then my phone rings - its the Chinese place. They just found my rice. Wow - I can't believe they bothered to call. I was kind of impressed. I told them it was OK, that I would swing by and pick it up later. Chinese leftovers are good around 10pm.
Now that I'm fed, I am in a better mood. And then I get a message - 3 magical little words.........."I have wine" LOL Its from Corinne. So I respond with 3 words........"On my way". So we sat in her house, drinking wine, looking at paint swatches, and bitching about our week. Definately the highlight of my Friday.
