vacation update

For those of you wanting to be on vacation with me: today brought the opportunity to sleep in...so of course I woke up at seven am and could not get back to sleep. sheesh. After a leisurely coffee drinking/computer reading time/ eat breakfast period the day kicked off. We did some errands and shopping for the upcoming tea party (over at a place called Harry's-which was just too much fun!) and tracked down comfortable earphones for my ipod listening pleasure. I still need to actually test drive them, but, at least they are purchased and available. We had a nice lunch out- I ordered coconut shrimp-as my friends know, one of my favorite "fattening" foods-and my sister had crab cakes...also yummy. One of the nice things between my sister and I is the ability to eat off each other's plates- we will frequently order different things so we each can try the others. Then, we checked out bedroom furniture for her...before heading over to a friends for dinner and out to a play.
I highly recommend going and seeing Bad Dates, written by Theresa Rebeck- a very funny and sort of "sex and the city" style comedy-thriller. It's currently playing at Horizon Theatre in Little Five Points (Atlanta,GA)...until March 19th. It's a real small building where every seat is a great seat. It features one actress doing the play-and she was excellent-quite an entertaining evening.

Came home to a nice quiet peaceful sleeping nephews house. These are teen-agers...so being a Friday night...and knowing no adults for the evening- we thought possible party night might happen-nice to not have that concern borne out.

My son had left a message - so I called him back to hear how the sonagram went-they think they are having a girl but due to placement of the cord, could not be positive.
The names they have picked out are Sophia for a girl and Alexander for a boy-great names as far as I am concerned..but then, I am so thrilled at the idea of becoming a grandma whatever names they like are great with me. What can I say? I love babies and babies love me...I will have all the fun and none of the sleepless nights.

What's up for tomorrow?? Finally- some hand quilting time for me...and later in the day a visit over at my brothers- a chance to see Cody with his quilt and all of us playing cards and having dinner together. I need to remember to ask my sis to bring her ditigal camera and I can get some photos! I don't have any with Cody and his quilt...that would be great to have for sure.

Life is good:
a sunny day with bright blue skies
loving phone conversations
the taste blend of coconut shrimp/pineapple salsa
wonderful email from friends
laughing until the tears run down your face
