Another Beautiful Day While Out And About

Today started out early, and we were out the door by 9:30 am. Patrick wanted to get some potting soil that was on sale. We went to Ace Hardware and picked up 10 bags of 2 cubic feet dirt. Loaded that up so fast. Came home, traded cars and headed to the casino.

This one was new as far as ownership. The food was good. I was surprised at how well it was. It's more like the old fashioned restaurants that we went to as kids. Now at least we have one more place we can go to when we can't decide.

Patrick was telling me about the flowers coming up on the side of the house. I just had to go check it out.

Love these flowers! There are three flowers to one stem. Really pretty.

A Good Day For Stitching

I woke up in pain. I couldn't believe how hard it was to get out of bed. I got going on the laundry and even started a puzzle. I tried...
