Good morning, Everyone! 💗
How was your week and weekend?
Our week was busy and full here. In fact, for the most part, I've been on a dead run since last we visited a week ago.
Amanda arrived late Monday evening; early Tuesday morning she and I headed to Springfield where we enjoyed shopping at Bass Pro, lunch at Hemingway's, and going through Wonders of Wildlife and the National Aquarium. It was a lot of fun!

On Wednesday Amber treated us to a special birthday lunch and home spa party where we enjoyed home-concocted facials and sugar-scrubbed foot treatments. Our son-in-law's 99-year-old great-grandma joined us and she is a hoot! We had so much fun listening to her stories and hearing about some of her many antics! After the spa treatments we enjoyed homemade banana splits. Yum! 😋

Wednesday night our youngest son and his family, and one of my cousins, joined us for an evening of entertainment and stargazing. Amanda and Nicole and I laid out in the yard on blankets and watched the Perseid's meteor shower for a while and, I'm happy to say, we weren't disappointed! We saw several really lovely meteors!

Amanda left on Thursday and on Friday (in celebration of my birthday and her return to school as a teacher this week) a friend from work and her sister invited me to join them for a picnic lunch at a local park. It was a lot of fun and it was nice visiting with them. I will miss Claudia at work, though...especially on Mondays. 😞
I worked Saturday and, last night, we were invited to our next-to-the-youngest son and dil's for supper. While there, we celebrated our granddaughter's 15th birthday, which is today.
We did a little geocaching throughout the week, too, which is sooooo much fun!
