Life Last Week 2018-10

Last week for the snow - yeah right, my New England friends are saying and speaking of the white stuff, read on.

The weather:::
 High 40s and low 50s and SNOW for Wednesday?  No, no, no...I can't handle snow when I have to fly through airports in the Northeast.  There is no room for any delays in our schedule.  Think warm thoughts, everyone, please. 

On my reading pile:::
Still working my way through this pile and realized that my carry-on bag really doesn't have any room for a library book.  I need to explore the library's online lending - that's on my to-do list for today.

On my TV:::
Still in Midsomer (Murders) and watching old episodes of the Great British Baking Show.  I wish Netflix would add some more seasons.

Checked off the list:::
  • Spouses' group board meeting.
  • St. Patrick's Day lunch with the spouses' group with an Irish dancing demonstration by the daughter of one of our group and her dance students.
  • Manicure in preparation for the Joint Services Luncheon, an annual luncheon that rotates between the Air Force, Army, and Navy bases in the area.  The Air Force ladies really set the bar high - they did a beautiful job with the event.
  • An event sponsored by Bank of America about transitioning from the military to civilian life - I didn't learn anything I didn't already know but it was good for Vic to hear it all.
  • Deadline for the charity applications - now I have to prepare a report for the selection committee and get it sent off to them to review before our meeting to allocate the charity funds next week.

Crafts roundup:::
Downloaded another idea for the Christmas ornament swap for Christmas in July.  Still behind on Project Life; craft table still covered with charity applications.

And in other news:::
A few photos from the luncheon - the theme was Oh, the Places You'll Go (Dr. Seuss).

  1. Wow, the luncheon decor was fantastic. What a fun theme! Praying for uncomplicated travels for you and perfect weather...

  2. Wow have you been busy my friend. We may travel up to WA this summer house hunting. I miss WA there is an allure to the Pacific NW.
