My Week.....

On Monday, I filed for Social Security - yeah!

I saved a chipmunk from the visiting cat that comes around.... I am hoping the neighbors did not see me running around screaming like a banshee - telling the cat to drop the chipmunk - DROP the chipmunk NOW!

I listened and watched as my big woodpecker with the bright red head sat out on the tree limb (where the suet feeder normally is), yelling about it not being there and filled! It was inside, all filled up, but my husband needed to hang it back up. So I told the woodpecker to blame him!

On Thursday, I met up with my niece Sara and her Mom Barb. They were in town for a few days. We went to our favorite town of Occoquan to do some shopping. Barb bought us all gorgeous scarves - scarves that are so long and wide, they can be used for a shoulder wrap to keep warm. I told Barb - if you wear it out to a restaurant or work as a scarf and you get chilled, just take it off your neck and wrap it around you! She got the scarf with red tones, Sara got the one with purple tones, and I got the one with orange tones! Then later, Sara bought me an umbrella that is bright orange with white polka dots. Too sweet of them!

On Thursday night, we all met up for dinner....

Then on Friday, we all met up again (including the guys) and we went shopping at the mall. Well, they shopped, I watched! Barb bought me another scarf - this time a more casual one in madras (brought back some memories of when I was growing up and we wore madras alot). This scarf has shades of pale lilac, and pale orange and a bit of purpley blue - makes me happy whenever I wear it.

Then we had to part.... I had to try really hard not to cry! They left on Saturday morning. Booooo!!

And that was my week.....

Sounds like a good time you had with family. I love the scarves! And, the umbrella sound so cute!! I know the chipmunk was happy you were available to rescue him! Bad kitty!

Sounds like a fun time with family! My mother was just here after a trip to Italy (once in a lifetime trip for her) and she brought us all scarves like that--love it!
