Having breakfast with three good friends at Cracker Barrel is a great way to start off Thursday!! Our Deb is still traveling so we invited friend, Maria, to come and join us. Maria is recuperating from surgery and is still unable to drive!:( Fortunately she has lots of good friends who are glad to take her on some jaunts! Being unable to drive anywhere you want to go is hard on us modern women! I shared my Call the Midwife Season One DVD with Maria. It should help to pass some of the time that she is housebound. Maria works at a local OB GYN office so I know she will get a kick out of watching babies being born back in the late 50s early 60s. Another friend had loaned her all three seasons of Downton Abbey so Maria will be busy watching all those dvds.
We had a great time eating and gabbing before we took time to stroll about the Country Store. You know how dangerous that is for me! I did find a cute winter cloak there...it is red with pretty ruffles around the top. Here in Alabama it seldom gets cold enough to require a heavy coat. Most of the time we can get by with something cozy to wear from the car to where ever we are going. I look forward to a chilly Sunday so I can wear my pretty cloak to church.
After breakfast, Maria and I took some time to just drive around and enjoy the fall leaves. We like to look at houses, so we drove through several neighborhoods. I have always loved the idea of being a real estate agent. If I could get Marvin to get a license, I could do the fun part of showing houses and let him do all the contracts etc! I enjoyed driving around with a friend who loves looking at homes as much as I do!
Now I am back home and there are several things I could be doing but Thursday is my day Off...so I am probably going to just enjoy the rest of this fall afternoon by curling up with a good book!
