|08:11 am - things are looking up! :D|
John and I had a great day yesterday!
First, we got to sleep in until around 9am...which is pretty good for us. Then I made some breakfast while John showered - eggs with veggies and mini potato wedges. We ate that then I quickly got dressed and went to softball practice for my friend, Kurt's, team. I will be like an extra...a sub, in case anyone can't make it. I just want the exercise and fresh air...and softball is pretty fun. Then teammates are really nice too.
While I was practicing, John took Jacob and Orion to the dog park about 100 yards away from where we were practicing. There were sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many dogs there...it was crazy! I went and joined John, Orion and Jacob after our practice let out. We walked around some more, pets some doggies, met some crazy ones, pet some puggies, got jumped on a few times, then headed home.
Got home...I changed out of the wet clothes and exchanged Orion and Jacob for Ella and Jaga. Ella and Jaga came with us to the store where we picked up groceries. We quickly returned home and I started making food for our early supper we were having with John's parents at our new place.
We smoked a bowl, I took a shower, and we cleaned up the house a little before 4pm...
John's parents arrived around 4...we chatted, gave them the grand tour of the house/yard/garage. They said they loved it! So do we!!!! I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH HOW MUCH I LOOOOOOOOVE OUR NEW LIL HOUSE!!!!
While I finished preparing the food and getting it into the oven, we chatted and drank the champagne that they brought. We snacked on grapes, ants-on-a-log (celery with peanut butter in the groove and raisins on top), orange slices, and apple slices while we admired the gorgeous flowers and the kick ass vase that they gave us for a house-warming gift.
We ate a splended salad with spinach, baby greens, cucumbers, black olives, tomatoes, mushrooms, celery and baby broccoli. Then for the main course, we had home-made 3 cheese Manicotti that I seem to be good at making (I have made it for a few special occasions, and every time it was super yummy!!) with buttery garlic bread. It was a success!
The meal - around $25 and some labor.
Having John's parents over without being embarassed of our house - priceless.
