Upstate Update

I don't have too much to say today. It was a pretty busy day with my aunt. I slept in until 11:15am (which is only 8:15 for me anyway, so really not like sleeping in at all), and then Aunt Fran took me to her office for their quarterly healthy potluck. She belongs to the Fit Club at her office, and didn't want to miss the meeting/potluck. It was fun, and the food was good.

Then we did some last minute shopping to prepare for the trip to Altoona, PA tomorrow. She is taking a bunch of cookies for the reception and wanted to get a nice plate to arrange some on for the bride and groom, and a cake box to put it in. (The rest of the cookies are going on a tray for public consumption.) I also looked for shoes to go with the dress I brought. I didn't find any, but we decided I could borrow a cute pair of sandals that she already has. That works for me! It's a plus sharing the same shoe size!

Then we came back and had dinner before making 2 more kinds of cookies (there are six total). We actually finished a lot earlier than expected. She's not used to having any help in the kitchen, which speeds things up.

That was today in a nutshell. (An appropriate receptacle, as Joie would say.) And tomorrow - 4 hours in a car and a rehearsal dinner. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. (Does jet-lag cause delirium? Or is that just my personality?)

And Dagny - I'm reading Northern Lights by Nora Roberts. It's a romance/mystery novel. I really like Nora Roberts, and usually love her books. But, this isn't the best of hers that I've read. It's entertaining though, and I'll finish it out.

Yay for being able to borrow shoes. Oh, and thanks for the info about the book.

Going to Amsterdam??? What? How come nobody ever tells me anything?
I hope the wedding was fun. I'm back from the mountains.

Hi!!!! I think Tami's grandmother lived in Amsterdam NY. Kyle & I have driven though that area on the way to my aunt's lake house. It is just such a small world!!!

Christyn said...

OK Tami, I'm going through my withdrawls!! It is so quiet here, at work, w/o you, and you haven't updated your blog in a few days! Ho-Hum, what am I to do?? :(

Hope you had a great time at the wedding and with your Aunt Fran! You deserved that much needed vacation! Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow and hearing about your trip...and giving you back your lovely P.R.R's!! You owe me!!! JK!

See ya soon!

What is P.R.R's?

Tami said...

Cait - didn't go to Amsterdam, but that is where my Dad grew up and where the paternal grandparents lived. The groom is a cousin on my mom's side, and her family is the one from the Buffalo and Syracuse areas, where I went. Where's your aunt's lake house?

And PRRs are one of my duties at work this month that Christyn is covering for me while I'm gone. And she doesn't much care for them. Can you tell?
