Gosh for a day off yesterday I ran my self ragged!  I had to go to three places to get the bulbs for the chandelier and come to find out they don't make round led 12e bulbs, only incandescent.  Every place I went told me they made them but that they didn't carry them.  I ended up with the kind I didn't want but gave up and got them.  Now to get it installed!

Today is canasta and then poker with our season ending dinner before we play.  We are having barbecue.  Each of us got to order a meat and two sides ( or as they say in the south, a meat and two ) so I got chicken, slaw, and collards.  I was trying to order the lesser of the evils of delicious barbecue and low calorie eating and still be sociable. Sometimes it's a bit harder than others but I manage.

So the month of April has come to an end.  They do fly by don't they?  Four days until cruise time too.  The duck is Sooooooo ready to go, he has so much stress in his job and really needs the week with nothing to do but have some family fun.  I don't really have stress but I just like to go.  Well you already know that don't you?

Have a great Tuesday y'all.  I will too.  And hopefully I won't lose too much money at poker!


  1. I don't know but chicken, slaw and collards sound really good right now !
    Just as long as they don't drown the slaw in mayo and not too much bacon ? with the collards.
    Just despise when stores say they have something but when you get there it is not in stock ? hello ?

    cheers, parsnip

  2. Hooray for almost cruise time. I'm jealous!! srsly. But so happy for you. Have a lovely day! big hugs xoxo

  3. I just sent you a message on Facebook about the bulbs :).

  4. Bee, Have fun at cards and the b-b-q. That will be a great relaxing time for you and Duck. Just sitting on deck watching the horizon is peaceful. I am excited for you. xoxo,Susie

  5. Did you try IKEA?

    Have a great Day.

  6. No cruise booked for us. Bugger. I'm going with you. A cyber cruise is better than NO cruise.

    Big hugs, honey...

  7. Enjoy your meat and two, and the anticipation of a CRUISE in the very near future. Fun times!

  8. The months go too quickly for me these days. Get ready to set sail!

  9. I'm sorry you had such a hard time with those bulbs. I hate it when that happens. You'll end up replacing them you know. You know it too. You want what you want.

    Your baby is out for delivery today. I just checked. So tonight you'll have your pet rock and you both can get acquainted.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from hot and sunny California. ☺

  10. It's so annoying when you can't get light bulbs etc that you want. We have that problem with the flourescent light tubes under our kitchen wall cupboards. Only 4 days to go - YAY lucky you!

  11. Ciao!!!

    Cruise is coming...glad that Chuck can go witH YOU, you are not alone!

    Have a great evening!
    I go to bed!

    Bi hugs!

  12. YUM, collards sound yummy right now...

  13. They fired up the BBQ pit at the local bar today and while I don't care much for BBQ I was very tempted. Smelled really good.
