Thursday May 18th –
An early start to a town day with Mom began with a stop at a garage sale, with the procedes going towards the building of ‘The Rose Garden Hospice’.
I found some good kitchen containers and some for my cement creations, as well as these super cute glass, things 😋
Which after some suggestions and contemplation, I think I will fill with fun, colored sprinkles 😁
On we went, searching for many a house thing, pricing stuff out and looking for ideas amidst other errands.
It’s hard work using that much brain power to think of what color taps and fixtures you want where and what should blend or match or what can mix or what can’t etc. etc 😬
So we stopped for refreshment at Starbucks, getting a cool lime refresher with coconut milk 💚👌🏻
Super simple Starbucks hack, ask for no or less ice and they fill the cup muuuuch more, making the sudden empty space in your pocket feel a tad more justified😉
We glanced at the Habitat ReStore to see if they would happen to have enough tile for our bathroom space, but to no avail.
At Michael’s (the place I never shop at without a coupon 😉😋) I got some gold paint to hopefully add some alluring detail to my cement crafts and some fairy things for my nieces upcoming birthday.
I’m hoping to get a fairy garden set together for her😊
A jewelry store was stopped at too and if, as a lady you ever reach the point where you feel like you’re ok and don’t need any jewelry, go to a store and that won’t be the case anymore 😋
Mom had a ring to size so I had time to window shop and Mike may or may not have gotten some ‘hint’ pictures ‘accidentally’ 😂
Lunch was eaten at ‘The Spice Trail’.
(Who’s name makes me have the song ‘Happy Trails’ stuck in my head)
I’m not a curry fan so I was admittedly a little leery of trying it out but Mom insisted it was good, so in we went 😉
A friend joined us so we had a nice little catch up while testing our East Indian cuisine, all of which I liked.
I’d recommend going to try some new dishes there (we did the lunch buffet which gives a smattering of choices which was nice for the first time) and to focus on the company, food and friendly staff, more than the decor 😉😋
Groceries had to be purchased and the cutest little fruit and veg selections were available, though left 😜
Finally we were able to head back home, taking the boys burgers for some strength as they’d been working on the house most of the day. Getting plumbing and electrical stuff done, among other things.
I was at home, Mike at the house and Mom went to ply pickle ball, so supper was a bit of a help yourself ordeal, resulting in a cheese bun for me😜
Friday May 19th –
And another, almost full day in town.
Though it was slightly less planned than the other but possibly a tad more productive.
Mike and I headed in not long after waking, as I was needed along to pick out shower faucets, among other things🚿
I’m more of a flooring/wall color/accent color decor kind of person then this whole silver, chrome, brushed nickel, bronze or black fixture stuff 😬
Finding it a tad mind-boggling to figure out what we do where and how that will blend or not etc.
But brushed nickel was the bathroom decision😉
After taking the bro out for lunch as partial payment for his plumbing and electrical skills, it was a typical day in town doing price checking.
Back and forth across town, looking multiple places at the same things until deciding which would be the best.
A sample of tile was picked up for the bathroom, flooring bought and loaded, a shower head picked out and finally Starbucks purchased and home bound.
Until we had to turn around five minutes out of town and go back for forgotten pieces 😏
Then to Becca’s, where we delivered drinks, to the one who would soon deliver a child 😬
The boys went to continue working on the house and us girls got supper going while deciding on a plan of action for when/who would be hospital bound with Becca.
I delivered Mike his food to the house and not long after I got back, they knew they had to leave for the hospital, then.
Meaning I was suddenly alone with Spencer, some possibly traumatic bonding ahead of us depending how he decided to feel about me😜
He actually decided to be pleased, so it was a good evening and he went to bed fine.
Which he probably wouldn’t have done, had he realized the change that was occurring in his life as he rested peacefully, becoming the middle child and no longer Moms main attention focus, because ( Jem Moment 😉💎 ) baby Sarah had arrived 10:02 pm. 😉😊💕👶🏻
