Our Saturday

Yesterday was a nice day. Instead of staying home, we went to an old friend of ours house. His name is Rick and he is my hairdresser and has been since 1995. Rick lives in New Jersey in a senior citizen high rise building. He has an adorable 1 bedroom apartment. He is on the 7th floor, so we have to take an elevator up there. I love how he has it decorated. This man has oriental, american indian, egyption decor all over his house. He collected roosters too and when I told him that I collect them he gave me a bunch of roosters. I will take a picture of them all later and show you. While we were there, Jim fixed Rick's computer. He had to reformat it, and install some things. It works great now. Then we went to dinner at a restaurant ran by Greeks called the Magnolia Diner. I love their cooking. I had the roasted turkey platter, with apple stuffing, mashed taters and green beans and a salad. I loved it. And I ate every bit of it. Rebecca had french fries, chicken tenders, buttered cheese bread, and she ate some of my green beans. Jim and Rick had these huge burgers called California Burger. They came with pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, coleslaw, mayo and a side of french fries. My dinner came with desert, so I gave it to Rebecca. She chose mint chocolate chip icecream. My drink was unsweetened iced tea with I added 2 packs of splenda to it. I have learned to really like that splenda. Anyways here is some pics of yesterday. Jim and Rebecca are at the park. It is sunny and 48 today, so they dressed warm and drove up to the park for an hour or so. I have alot of cleaning to do, so I am going to get dressed finally. Yes it is almost 3pm and I am still in my pajamas, lol. But I went to bed last night at 10pm and I didn't wake up until 10:15 this morning. And the amazing thing was I took nothing to help me sleep. I guess my body finally said enough was enough and I crashed completely. I did wake up with a slight headache though. I always do when I over sleep. I'll be back later tonight with more pics. I do need to get dressed and get this place cleaned up. It is awful. Hmmm, should I take before and after pics?


Love ya all........................CINDY
