Monday, I hit my speed limit!
I can't report any numbers because the weekend was so crazy and I do not know where I stand. Will try to figure it out today!
The show went well, actually very well. I am so proud of my dancers, they are incredible. We had good houses. The pipers and the drummers were excellent. I insisted on a piper solo this year. We blacked the stage with a single spot in the middle and had a piper come out in full regalia and play "Oh Danny Boy and Shenandoah" it was so beautiful it made me cry.
Right now what is making me cry is Carla's three girls are sick. They have some crud that is sticking. Say a prayer for that poor mom. I remember when my three would get sick all at once and then have something the entire winter! Ugh. Poor darlings.
My Mom is here and we have a couple of days of fun planned around my work schedule. She is not feeling well right now. Her medicines make her sick to her stomach. I love it when my mom is here. I wish she would live with me.
I had my 55th birthday yesterday. It is my speed limit Birthday! There are so many flowers in the house right now it looks like a funeral home. Girls and Hubby cooked dinner yesterday, it was a hoot. There is an art to getting a meal on the table with everything hot. I just had to eat and giggle. Cold baked potatoes, hard artichokes, Steak (fried on a griddle, yes fried on a pancake griddle) tough as nails,and over seasoned with pepper. Shrimp was good and oysters at the end of the meal as they had forgotten to put them on.
I have 6 new baby chicks, and I received a beautiful brass door knocker in a Celtic design. Also received the new Hobbit movies and my very favorite gift a large wax machine to dip my hands in every morning. It was kind of spendy but also medicinal. I have wanted one for a long time.
It was a nice birthday. I was so tired yesterday it was hard to enjoy it, but I tried.
My sissie broke her foot the day before yesterday so I am sure she did not have such a nice birthday. I hope she is a little better today.
Well, I have to go check on the mother and get my day started as I have much to do.
Have a great and productive day!
