|A peacefully sleeping Tugie yesterday morning!|
I was grateful to have some home time yesterday morning to get ready for my trip, get caught up on laundry, and organize some things around here. George has his own agenda going and met someone for a guitar he wants to get fixed and met with a physical therapist to see his Mom. Having got there to meet the therapist, his Mom had just fallen - and it was not the first time. So she was complaining of pain and so George took her to the emergency room. There were no broken bones. Thankful for that. And the ER did not take half the day and then some as it can most of the time - just a few hours and he was back home. He and I texted. I offered to bring him a magazine and something to snack on. But he said they were moving through pretty quickly, and for me not to come but stay home and get things done. He did not get done what he wanted though as it was time to get ready to go out to our baby shower event when he came home.
I was hungry at lunch and fixed a bit of pasta and pasta sauce and some green beans. It was just enough to have a plate and then freeze one. It's not George's normal flair for lunch - most of the time he tries not to eat lunch. I can't go without meals due to the blood sugar peaks and valleys so I had some spinach pasta and made up the sauce with a can of tomatoes, garlic, onion, seasonings, and splashes of this and that. Before long I had a really good sauce. It was good as I'd been needing something like that with a tomato sauce.
I had been up since 3:30 due to Tugie. So by the time it was time for us to leave for the shower at 2:30, I was really feeling like a nap. So I fixed a Keurig in the Yeti cup. Problem with that is that it stayed so hot that I could not drink it. lol Had very few sips and George stopped quickly at a light as I was taking a small sip. The burning hot liquid became a huge sip and burned my entire mouth. I could not spit it out as I wearing white and no where for it to go. So I endured it and it made me mad at my coffee. I couldn't be mad at George, as he was just trying to keep us safe, lol. Anyway no coffee in me, to the shower we went.
I like to take pics of the decor and let someone else take pics of the people. A very cute baby shower and also for both men and women, which I think was nice. The shower was for "Breezy" or Briana, who married Cody's (my daughter's husband) brother. So she and Katy are sister in laws and are somewhat close. Breezy is the one that helped us with the flowers. She is creative and sweet and kind and funny. We have enjoyed getting to know her. We have offered to be an extra set of grandparents if needed. ;-)
Those cupcakes were soooo good. They had real strawberries in them. They had to be from scratch. And the icing too. The brownies had a bit of pink swirled into the top. Yes it's gonna be a girl and they are naming her Emilia, as you see on the sign above.

|Due date is on our Anniversary|
|Love the decor and a big fan of ferns.|
|The gifts were endless! A big shower!|
|Table decor...so very pretty. I like the painted mason jars!|
|My palm tree and beach scene, lol. Paint colors limited.|
So the shower lasted a couple of hours. And George had agreed we could stop off at Opry Mills for a few minutes so I could look at shoe places. I've not been happy with the shoe situation - as the shoes I had hoped to go with navy, just didn't work b/c of the gold that runs through them. They look good with white and khaki but not navy. One of my prime outfits I'm taking on the trip includes the navy pants. So we went to the mall which was about 10 minutes away from where we were at the shower.
Well, everyone else was doing the mall also - since it was a Saturday night and also extremely hot. Took forever to get to the mall, but there were parking places at least. George dropped me off so I could be shoe scouting.. And he parked and caught up with me. We went in several stores and it was looking pretty grim to find me some navy sandals or silver sandals that did not have a heel, and did not look like a flip flop and were comfortable. I finally found a store that had some that I liked. We were thrilled. I ended up buying three pair in three colors. Black, navy, and brown as there was a sale. So I think I'm good now! lol Now I can go on my trip. (I actually just had to stop typing so I could check in for my flight tomorrow morning.)
So while we were at the Opry Mills Mall, we passed by a new German restaurant, The Bavarian Bierhaus.
|On the way home it was 101 outside at 7 p.m.|
So we didn't eat dinner at the German restaurant b/c we were going to come home and cook, but by the time we got home, it was 8:20 and even though George was wanting to cook - and had gone and bought stuff for it -I told him that bed was not far for me, having been up since 3:30. So he steamed some veggies that I had chopped already - and were ready for steaming. And we had a bowl of steamed veggies and I had half of a pastrami sandwich.
So everything is ready for our day today except for me, I need to go get ready. I'll post about that tomorrow - or whenever I can find time to post! Ya'll have a grand day! Pray for my flights and travel to Phoenix and Oklahoma City. (Thanks!)
