Saturday morning, LittleBit and I met at the apartment for the final cleaning. This is not what her room looked like on Tuesday night. Or Thursday night.
Her penny stash. Never let it be said that she has no cents at all!
I borrowed Firstborn’s vacuum. Then I walked the apartment with the assistant manager and turned in our keys. Stick a spork in us; we’re done.
And to celebrate, we went to the Cheesecake Factory, where I used the gift card a friend had given me. This is the bread that they brought us while we waited for our cheesecake; it is also the new desktop image on my computer.
LittleBit had the Chocolate Tuxedo Cream Cheesecake. I had the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut.
[It’s not listed on their website, but it has Caramel in the name somewhere.] We divided each in half, and shared.
Changing the subject; check this out. Very clever, actually. It’s made of plywood [top and bottom], EPS board [completely inert, non-toxic and recyclable] and rope. It functions as a stool and as a side table. It will support 300 pounds, which would more than adequately handle my exponentially-expanding stack of books to be read. And it’s on sale, but I bet I could make something like unto it for a whole lot less.
Had a blast at the church social last night. Played no games, just sat at a couple of tables and watched others play, while I knitted and visited with them. And there was pie and/or ice cream for dessert, or a vegetable platter for the diabetics.
- Five years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!
