Happy 2014!

The start of a New Year! That's always exciting and hopeful. Hopeful of new things, new changes, everything that makes life grand!

My New Year's Eve wasn't boring as I had thought it would be. Not at all! Timmy asked me if I thought it would be nice to invite our good friends - Jack and Lynn Gilbert - over for dinner. Yes! Yes! My children were all in Houston so we were going to be all alone. No one was going to be asking us to baby sit so an adult night sounded marvelous to me! So he called Jack and they accepted, yes, they would love to join us for dinner!

I was glad they could come but now that meant I had to clean house! In my house there are two types of clean - everyday clean and COMPANY clean. Company clean to me means your house has to sparkle. Oh my. Gotta get to work. So I pulled out the windex and the pledge and got to work. Then I decided I wanted to decorate my table. That I love because I get to use my "good dishes". I love, love, love dishes
