Tuesday, I'm back and ready

     We had a wonderful time!  Went up to Priest Lake in Norther Idaho and rented a boat for 1/2 a day.  It was about 85 and we just spent the afternoon on the lake.  We took a channel  to the upper lake.  It was so beautiful.  I got a little sunburned but not bad.  It was fun to get together with old college chums.  It was just like old times.  We were married 3 days apart both of us have raised our children.  We both have a young college age child, but here we were alone, back to the way we were when we were young.  We went out to dinner at an authentic Mexican restaurant that evening and then we went to a pottery house that was open until 10 p.m.  I bought about $40.00 worth of handmade pottery, so pretty.  Here is our breakdown:

     Gas: $45.00
     Boat: $175.00 (Host paid, although I offered to pay 1/2, we were supposed to hike but his knee was bad)
     Gas for boat $93.00 (I paid $50)
     Fudge Shop: $12.99
     Dinner: $57.00 (I paid)
     Pottery: $42:00
     Cabelas: $71.36  (Husband had gift certificate and bought a camp cot he has wanted)
     Total: $196.99 out of pockets

I came home with $74.00 to put into pot for next weekend when we go to see our grandson.

     Out My Window:  Garden is Huge, I need to go do some weeding and pick the cherries today!

     I have several appointments in the shop today and I have about 30 table cloths to hem for a wedding so I had better get cracking. I have unpacked from the weekend and need to do laundry.  The dog had made a terrible mess with pine cones while we were gone.  Chewed up several in every room.  So I had to pick up all the area rugs  and sweep the upstairs last night.  I think he was lonely, kids were home, but Hubby walks him and I am home with him more. Poor darling.
     I have to send out summer ballet letters today.  Also cannot spend any money this week as I will need at least $400.00 to go to southern Idaho this next weekend.  We need gas money and we are going to take Hubby's dad out to dinner for Father's Day.  We also have to take son-in-law out for his Birthday which was on Father's Day.  Also a little extra for travel, we will probably stay in a motel one night.  Now my goal is to see if I can do this!  July will be a tight month!

     Have a great and productive day!
