Things happen everyday that I either learn or notice,
and I wish to remember....
so here are some from this past week:
1. A good meal when we have a large group is make-it-yourself-
tostados. But this last time, I couldn't find the regular tostado shells
I usually buy and bought these instead....and they were SO much
better. I don't know about your store, but I found these right with
the fresh tortillas (rather than in the Mexican section of the store.)
I also learned that shredded cabbage tastes better on tostados than
lettuce! The clerk at Vons suggested this when they were out of the
lettuce. She said I will never go back. I think she's right.
2. I see some of nephew Jake in my grandson Richie.
Especially looking back when Jake was that age. Interesting how
3. Speaking of Jake, he gave me a good website for ordering
special paintings and pictures of Christ. Cultural hall.com
4. Since both Logan and his friend Matt McCauley's wives were
out of town last Sunday, Karen invited them over for dinner.
Chandler too. What turned out to be a surprise to us, in talking to
Matt about the house we will soon be moving into....he said he did
the landscaping for it! He even said he would send me the plans so
I would have them. And he did!
5. Karen and Tyler introduced me to an iphone app: turboscan
SO we gave it a try and took my Mom's 1st grade picture and
scanned it using my phone. I could not believe how simple it was!
And here all this time I thought I needed to spend lots of $$$ and
buy another scanner since mine died many months ago.
Looking at Mom's teacher, Mrs Faye, Mom is 4th girl to the right. Looking at my Mom,
her cousin Helen is 2 girls to the left. Interesting to me because Mom use to talk often
how her cousin got all the nice clothes and curls and bows in her hair. The contrast is
apparent in this picture with Mom wearing what looks like a zip up sweater and flat hair.
Must have been particularly difficult for my Mom being the 2 cousins and their families
shared a small house together!
6. Violet is old enough now to join us in our annual tea party with Elora, Erin and her mom. Our tenth year!
In reference to Jonas, Logan texted back:
8. I have a regret. When Heidi G was here this week she was
talking about the bunkbeds Tyler and McKay had growing up.
Bunk beds? They had bunk beds??
If I could go back in time I would take a picture of each of my
sons on their birthdays IN THEIR BEDROOMS. I wouldn't
clean up the room but just take a picture of them in it as it was.
That would have shown a lot about who they were at those
ages....surrounded by the things they love and the projects they
were working on at the time. I wish I wish I had.
9. And my biggest worry of the week goes to Amy, Logan and
Chandler. They left yesterday morning to hike Mount Whitney.
