Mix it up Monday

How was your weekend? Hope it was good! Mine was nice and pretty productive too. So, Saturday I got up early, went and got my hair cut (love it!) and then headed over the hill to meet Uncle Steve and his wife Debbie I was so nervous that I was having trouble eating anything. I grabbed some Muscle Milk and that stuff is pretty yucky. Won't be having that again. Anyways, I get to where we are going to meet and I am thinking "Wow this is the Safeway we go to when we camp!" They live about 10 minutes from there so I followed him up to the house. Not sure if I could find it on my own that is for sure!

We had a great visit and I had nothing to be worried about. They made me feel comfortable from the very get go. He was about 15 when I was born and left home shortly thereafter so he was not around much during all of the turmoil that was going on in Sandy's (his sister) life. He had a bunch of pictures from when he was married and Sandy was in the pictures and she was beautiful :-D

Steve gave me the ceramic pieces from my great grandmother that were made around the late 1920's. I just think it is amazing that she sold ceramics during WWII. She made the molds and everything.
Speaking of ceramics, I found this frame that I painted when I was unpacking. It is called Daisy Days

Sunday we spent resting and organizing. I am down to the last few boxes. I need to go through the storage unit too but that can wait. Dave found this plant stand for $2 at a garage sale so we bought the top plant to go on it. I had another plant there but I opted to plant it outside in the ground.

Eating was good over the weekend. I did not sport the bugg but I think I got a fair amount of activity. I was up and down all day yesterday so it had to count for something LOL. Not sure what I am doing tonight. Dave finds out if he needs surgery today so we will see... Until next time...
