I’m trying to focus on wedding stuff, upcoming birthday celebration, and Thanksgiving.
Bart and Lea’s wedding is getting close now. I ordered the food today for the rehearsal dinner. A friend, Angie, dropped off lovely table decorations to use for the dinner. I just need to buy candles and light blue gemstones for them. Emily thought of the idea of putting gemstones in the light blue bowls with the candles in the middle. My sister-in-law, Denise, has tablecloths for me to use. We will go early in the morning to decorate for it.
I found some shoes I like to wear with my dress for the wedding. Not an easy task with my very wide feet but I found a cute pair of heels. Next thing I need to do is finish altering Emily’s straps of her bridesmaid dress. The sash is done. My husband will look handsome in his tux. He didn’t wear a tux for our wedding but ours was a very simple church wedding with one attendant each. However, I did want him to wear a suit but he wouldn’t. Instead he wore a leisure suit - remember those leisure suits in the 70s. They didn’t last long.
Also like many of you, I’m preparing for Thanksgiving.
I have my Marrying Mallory revised so that’s done! I haven’t had time to do any new writing.
Tomorrow April is having a birthday party for me. Okay, I have to brag a bit. Something to lift my spirits because of my age. Recently I was in McDonald’s and ordered a senior coffee. Actually I don’t usually bother asking for a senior coffee but my husband stood nearby. He always wants us to get them because they are cheaper and after all, we are that age now. Anyhow the young man couldn’t believe my age. He said that his grandmother was younger and she looked older than I do. Then he embarrassed me by asking the other workers if I looked almost sixty. He made my day. I carried my senior coffee, with a big smile on my face all the way to the car. And the coffee never tasted better!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
