Here it is Wednesday & I haven't started a letter. Thanks so much for the beautiful basket of flowers. At church Carol Andersen always has the altar flowers at this time & one vase always went to Dad & now I get them. She always orders flowers from Ekeys & wants something special & she pays more than the regular price for altar flowers. I received many birthday cards & thank you for your card & comments. Yes, it must be the sweets!!
Last Friday we went out to eat & I chose Chiodo's. I had the fish fry & it was very good. Dale & Barb had baked fish topped with onion, mushroom & tomato & they said it was excellent. Lar had a sausage pasta & Kim had an eggplant pasta dish. We were all satisfied. Then we came home for birthday cake from BiLo & ice cream. Thanks for the phone call. It was good to talk with the boys & you.
Heard from Millie -- she enclosed Edith's obit. Gen called last nite so she remembered my birthday. Edith had oriental rugs, Waterford crystal, Sterling Silver silverware & beautiful china. The lawyer said she didn't have a will.
Enjoyed your letter & the plans of the high school. What a building. Enjoyed reading about Andy's classes. They are lucky to get 50 minutes for lunch.
Last week was a busy week, this week isn't. Today I made dinner rolls & a new recipe of blond brownies. I just tried 1/2 recipe (9x9 pan) & it is on the sweet side. Good with coffee, tho. Also rolled out a pie crust for an apple pie Ill make tomorrow A.M. As usual it will be chicken, but a new recipe. You marinate the chicken in a mixture of soy sauce & Italian dressing & bake them in the oven. It was tasty.
Today my nose has been running & I finally looked for cold tablets. I found a pkg with 2 left & it has helped as it's better tonite. Don't think it's a cold but an allergy to something.
We had a rainy day & only in the hi 40s. I can't complain about rain when so many in the world need it & don't get it.
I'm not too excited about the World Series this year. It will be a late start so I won't see the end of the game. I like Mike Scioscia (former L. A. Dodger) so I'll root for his team -- the Angels.
Last Friday I saw Dr. McNett & my blood pressure was good & the rest of fine so I don't have to go for 4 months.
Thurs pm the 17th
The kitchen is cleaned up & we're watching HGTV. Good programs on Thurs nite.
I don't think Lar, Kim & Torey can stay at Pine Lodge. They are sticking to no dogs rule. But 2 other motels take animals. They brought me a birthday gift tonite -- 4 blown glass tree ornaments. Next weekend Kim & Lar pick out Christmas trees. I told her to find a smaller one this year. I think I'll go back to an artificial tree next year.
A shorter letter this week.
