Good bye weekend

Where did this weekend go? It's hard to believe it's Sunday night and tomorrow morning I will be up and on my way to Curves with Rosie at 5:30am...YIKES!!!
Last night my sweet husband surprised me with 18 long stemmed yellow roses along with BBQing filet mignon steaks, baked potatoes and caesar sald to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary. I'm not really sure if he remembered that out colors for our wedding were yellow and navy blue, but the yellow roses were very appropriate. Our dinner was scrumptious and we enjoyed it outside on our patio by candlelight. Later we had our neighbors the Brasch's and their company and old friends of our, Sandee and Jim Waller over for strawberry shortcake. Darlene baked her special "Dinette Cake" and Frank covered it with strawberries and whipped cream. YUMMY! I lit all our outside candles, turned on the pool light and we all sat outside and visited and enjoyed the delicious desert. We decided that our dinner and our company was much better then any restaurant would have been.
This afternoon we opted out of couples golf due to the high winds and blowing dust and went with three other couples for Mexican dinner. The food was good, but the company was better. We feel so fortunate to live where we have so many wonderful, fun friends. On our walk home this evening we commented on what a great life we are living. God has truly blessed us and we are greatful. Even during these stressful economic times Frank and I are happy with the simple things in life....our family, our home, our friends and the opportunity to play at well! So for now, good bye weekend and good night!
