The sun is setting as the end comes to Spring Break Week. We have lived through a variety of weather this past week. Had the temps as high as 80* and as low as 38* We saw some sun shine but mostly clouds and a lot of rain in the past 7 days. Here in my hometown it is drizzling rain right now!! Maybe we will start to see some true spring weather in the week ahead.
AS I PONDER....
|Starting a road trip|
As I ponder this past week I can honestly tell you Harley and I had a good time. We left on Monday, March 27 and drove to my cousin's house in Wagoner, Oklahoma. About 270 miles south of here. Had a really good road trip. Except for Tulsa, Oklahoma where there are way too many crazy drivers. Both going and coming back there were issues in Tulsa. As Mac Davis once sang it was good to see 'Tulsa In My Rear View Mirror.' We came home on Friday and as always it was good to get home.
What We Ate....
|Chicken Fried Steak Sandwich|
|Ribeye at the Santa Fe Steakhouse|
|Barbque Ribs at Calvins|
On Tuesday we went shopping at the Woodland Hills Mall in Tulsa (Harley purchased some undies from Victoria's Secret)we shopped at the gift shop at Hard Rock Casino in Tulsa. My younger cousin works there so we stopped off to see him. Since Harley is underage we couldn't do much walking about the casino but she did find a 'glittery' tee shirt she liked in the gift shop. And we snapped a picture or two. We also found the thrift shops in Tahlequah..The Speckled Hen and the Briar Patch...(I thought about you Goodnight Gram) I bought a cool basket and an antique full size white chenille bedspread and Harley got a white elephant (ceramic). I only paid $12 for the bedspread so it was a real steal. We also shopped at a couple of thrift stores in Wagoner but they weren't nearly as impressive as those in Tahlequah. And I fell in love with BIG Dollar Trees. Our little Dollar Tree in Hutchinson has a lot to learn from those big boys. Harley was sick of stopping at The Dollar Tree. But I stopped at everyone of them we stumbled on. LOL! A total of four!!

A QUOTE I WANT TO SHARE...
A peek into my week...
This week we are getting back to normal. I am ready to kick my feet up in the recliner for a day or two and read my book. I have some laundry to catch up with. Harley will be working on Monday, Thursday, and the weekend. She is also going to hang out with a friend and do some practice 'prom do's'. And then maybe I will get back to working on my surprise. I bet you forgot about it, didn't you!!
A final thought...
We got a letter from Darian this week. He is doing well and seems happy. (I also was contacted by a little lady going to Fort Hayes State University saying she is in love with my grandson. What???) Darian has received his 'soft' orders. Means not set in stone. He may be heading to Kentucky!! We are still counting down the days to graduation and another road trip in June! Hope all of you had a good week. I missed you. I have a lot of blog reading to catch up on. See you soon!!
