Good Morning and Happy Friday the 13th!
As the morning host on the classical station said this morning, You decide whether or not Friday the 13th will be a good or bad day. I've never been bothered by Friday the 13th, but I know a number of people are. Even though it is a grey, rainy morning, I feel it will be a good day!
Schools in our county are closed for at least 2 weeks now. And, of course, all the colleges and universities are going to on-line classes. My one boss Bill and his wife Sue have been looking forward to their son's graduation in April. Now I wonder if there will even be a ceremony!
But, on a positive note, Colin & Mailing's "Save the Date" cards went out over the last couple of weeks.
So cute👫 Their engagement pictures were taken at Shofuso a Japanese Garden in Fairmount Park. (I think I posted about this previously.) They also included in the envelope a magnet:
The little black "stockings" on their feet crack me up, but the garden provides these for the house if you do not have socks on (you must leave your shoes at the entrance).
As usual, Colin was over last night for dinner (vegan sloppy joe mix made with lentils - yummy!!) and despite the threat of rain, we did have a fire.
And it did start to sprinkle immediately, but we were able to enjoy the fire for an hour or so. It felt and smelled so good! Fletch had thrown some scraps of cedar wood into the mix and the aroma was just wonderful.
The weekend will see some running around. Saturday morning I head to our tax person to pay the bill and drop off signed papers so that they can e-file for us. Then I need to stop and get wine (Colin said there's been a run on beer and alcohol!!) and we need to pick up a few things at the grocery store (if there is anything left!!). Otherwise I intend to do some knitting and the usual laundry and (minimal) cleaning.
I've got to get rolling as I have a conference call in 10 minutes and another one at 10. Wishing you all a happy weekend - enjoy!
