Can you believe we have just ended the 42nd week of the year. Now we are in the final countdown of 2021. T minus 10 begins today. Wow, this has been a short year!
As usual I keep up with things each day that bring me joy. There is something about recording them daily that always reminds me how many good things are in each day.
I love Corrine Bailey Rae's voice. It is joy deliverered! .
Friday: Even though we went out to a real restaurant for TheHub's birthday on Thursday, we had our regular "date night" Friday. This was the weekend of the annual Greek Food Festival downtown where we go every year. They have a well organized drive through lane where you can order than pick up all without ever leaving your car. To be honest the food was not as good as it has been in the past, but it was still tasty, plus we got to watch some kids doing Greek dances while we waited.
After the service we hooked up with another cousin and her significant other and all went out to eat and talk. And laugh. We laughed a lot, and nothing feels better than laughing following tears.

The trolls and bots are winning. Sorry but I am now going to have to moderate comments. I really dislike this but spent about 45 minutes deleting a computer generated comment that appeared on every single post from March 1 through yesterday. I am growling, but, if moderating will keep it from happening it is just the way I am going to have to do things right now.

This is the list of this week's highlights!
Friday: We had our new normal date night, meaning we ran a couple of quick errands then ended up buying take out food to bring home for our dinner. It was not an exciting date but we were out together and that is all that really matters.

This is the house today, You can see the ruts in the ground cover, which has very little grass, but a lot of weeds.
First let me explain that I live in a pretty desirable neighborhood. It is not one of the fancy streets with gates and HOA's. It is not a neighborhood with the biggest or newest houses. In fact part of the 'hood was built in the 60's then the newer section opened up in the late 80's.
My house is in the newer section, though our previous home was just a few blocks away in the older one, so I am very, very familiar with the area. Mom's house was just 2 minutes away, and I was tromping through here when I was a kid, blazing trails through "the woods" which is where my current home is now located,
What makes this neighborhood specifically desired is that it is located on the edge of two suburban cities, located directly off an artery road between the two. It has all the benefits of a bedroom community, while being close to excellent shopping, restaurants and entertainment, and access to the interstate.

Update of the great white monolith. The photo makes it look gray but it is white, and the lawn looks really nice. Photo shop I am guessing because there is very little lawn and what is there is patchy and bare. It also does not look like it is at the top of a very steep driveway. The miracles of photography

1. They say the kitchen is the heart of the home...tell us about YOUR kitchen. What is your favorite part of your kitchen?
2. If money were no object, what would be your "dream kitchen"?
3. Tell us about a favorite memory from your kitchen, or from a kitchen in your past, perhaps your mother's kitchen or your grandma's kitchen?
4. If you could invite anyone in the world (either past or present) to come visit with you in your kitchen, who would it be, and why?
