While hubby Kanga was in Florida, visiting his mom, I stayed home to guard the fort, and care for the livestock. He had left on Friday afternoon and returned Tuesday night at 11PM (UGH!). Needless to say now that he's back I can post about him being gone.
I was off Friday so I just had to contribute to Black Friday. After dropping Kanga off at the airport. I hit Planters Seed and Spice by the downtown City market. Then I walked over to Cascone's Grill for some lunch. I had spaghetti. I was very disappointed. I make better sauce. Afterwards I checked out some shops over by the Steamboat Arabia museum. I bought a Jasmine plant at Dutch Flowers. I then went and checked out Wink. On my way home I stopped at Fancy Finds on their last day of business and bought a seltzer bottle.
Saturday afternoon I went with friends(D & G) to an antique store down by the River Market. I bought a Noritake gravy boat with a beautiful maple leaf pattern. We then went to Harry’s Country Club for a snack before heading home. Once home I got the fireplace insert fired up. When girlfriend J showed up we heated plates of Turkey Day leftovers. We downed Captain Morgan spiced rum with diet cokes & ate dark chocolate M&Ms while we watched a couple movies. We had found out that we are both big fans of Johnny Depp. Therefore Pirates II was a must see. J also brought Practical Magic, with Sandra Bullock & Nicole Kidman. Definitely a chick flick, but easy on the eyes for the guys! We stayed up late talking. J is an animal lover. We have 2 dogs & 2 cats. She got her animal fix taken cared of while here.
Sunday, I cooked cheesy grits, bacon, toast & coffee. By then the fire had burned down to a few coals. I applied my Fire Goddess skills and got another roaring one going. J left just before 11AM to get some work done. I stayed in my PJs all day, even when I went outside to restock our inside supply of firewood.
I had a good time but really missed the hubby. Luckily, Kanga doesn't go out of town very often.
