A blog I follow , Escape wth Dollycas into a Good Book, recaps her week including outside activities, so I thought I might give it a try so that you all would know what was going on besides reading.
MONDAY - Headed off to the lab to get some blood work done before a doctor's appt. later this week.  Home to any easy day of reading.
TUESDAY - Another Mah Jongg day - morning at the Country Club with 4 other ladies, evening a home with regular ladies. Winnings 20¢

WEDNESDAY -  Easy day with .reading and evening at the Country Club teaching 4 ladies how to play Mah Jongg.  We a re adding Mah Jongg to the Ladies Game night starting in June - Yeah!

THURSDAY - Off to Frederick to see an old friend and get a haircut.  Evening Ladies at the Country Club got to together for BUNCO Charity night.  One of the players had to cancel so my sweet hubbie filled in and was a winner with the other ladies.  We raised $400 for the Kevin Miller Family Fund - a family in our neighborhood (wife 3 children) that lost their husband/father at the age of 43.

FRIDAY -  Off to The doctor's office - test results were a big improvement and lost 11 LBS!  Worked on spreading the news about the summer Ladies' events at the Country Club. Easy reading day the rest of the time.

SATURDAY - Morning dawned on our 39th wedding anniversary. Tim and I went to the grocery store and then after putting everything away, we went off to our friends home for a brunch in honor of their son's graduation from high school.  We had a great time visiting, the last to leave.  Home around 4PM for afternoon naps and then out to dinner.

On our anniversary I always want to acknowledge how very fortunate I am by the blessing of the wonderful man who shares my life.  His kind heart and generous spirit is frequently directed at me but also his friends and family.  He may not be the most romantic but I'll take his sweet disposition any day.

SUNDAY - Slept in, caught up on some of my taped TV programs, watched baseball, read.

Hope everyone had a great week!


Weekly Rewind

A blog I follow , Escape wth Dollycas into a Good Book, recaps her week including outside activities, so I thought I might give it a try so that you all would know what was going on besides reading.
MONDAY - Was  a book oriented day.  First I caught up on my reviews, I had 3 that I needed to write and get posted from last week.  Then I finished HEAT RISES the third book in the Nikki Heat/Richard Castle series.   I also did a few loads of laundry and talked to my Mom a few times.  I'm still trying to figure out he issues with my Outlook email. I can receive the messages fine, but none of my replies or new messages go any where - they just sit in my outbox.  Boo hiss.
TUESDAY - This seemed to be my day for games!  I had Mah Jongg scheduled at the Country Club and managed to win $6.55 - I think that's my best ever session, but then I went to my friend's house that night and played again and won another $2.65.  Nice....

WEDNESDAY -  Grocery shopping started the day and then reading.  I managed to catch a short nap, and then headed off to the Country Club where I was teaching a beginning class in Mah Jongg.  I met 1 lovely lady who I hope will continue to join the MCC Lilies in their other events.

THURSDAY - A quiet day, I spent fixing my e-mail (YEAH), and listening to Game of Thrones. BUNCO scheduled for this evening was rescheduled for next week.

FRIDAY -  Start of a weekend trip - I went off to get my hair done then, when I got home Tim packed up the car, picked up Mary-ellen, John, and Ellen (2 SIL and BIL - Tim's siblings) and we hit the road for Pittsburgh. We reached Tim's cousin's house with a cooler filled with 4 dozen steamed blue crabs.   They were gone before we left to settle in at the hotel.

SATURDAY - Morning was the reason for the trip - a memorial service for Tim's cousin Joe who had passed away  during the winter.  Tim's aunt was in Florida so they postponed the funeral until she came north.  At the luncheon afterward, we sat with cousin Tammy's son Alex who was a very charming young man.  The people who had come to the service were a few more than expected, so we volunteered to sit at the "kids" table -off in a different spot than the rest.  Much more quiet and it gave us a chance to talk and tell stories.  Then later in the evening dinner at cousin Greg's where there was an old-fashioned Irish Wake.

SUNDAY - We headed home arriving about 4PM to unpack and rest.

MONDAY - The Country Club that my husband and belong to is celebrating it's 50th anniversary this year and since he's President and I'm head of the Social Committee there are lots of items on our agenda for this.  Monday I spent researching (reading numerous past newsletters) past events in the history of the Club. I still have more to go through.  I sent an e-mail out to the Ladies Social group reminding them about our charity fundraising event later in the week ad tried to nag the media coordinator about sending out the notices for our newest event - Social Golf.  No luck on that.  I also finished listening to the audio version of Night Watch by Linda Fairstein. I really enjoy this series and look forward to the new one due out later this year.
TUESDAY -  I played hookie from responsibilities and went to spend time with my lady friends at the Country Club.  Six of us gathered to play Mah Jongg, eat, and imbibe with a few delicate Mimosas.  Most of the group is just learning (I'm the trainer), so we can't get as many games in as more experienced groups but we have a great time getting together anyway.  After lunch, I came home, grabbed a quick nap, and tried again to read Fountainhead.  A second nap ensued.  For dinner, we headed back to the Country Club for the 60's Rollback prices on drinks and dinner.  One of my favorites (liver and onions) was on the menu, YUM - I know most people don't like it and I don't get it often but at $2.99 it was a steal! The tab was less than $10 without the drinks.  Can't wait to see what 70's rollbacks are!
I'm continuing Time and Chance by Sharon Kay Penman for a group read on LibraryThing.  This one I am greatly enjoying.
WEDNESDAY -  Believe it or not I just read and played games on the internet.
THURSDAY -  I caught up on my book reviews, e-mail, and notices to be posted at the Country Club for events that I am involved in. In the evening, my sister-in-law, Mary-ellen and I went to the club for our monthly ladies charity event and a game of Bunco.  Dinner and a good time.  Back in time to see the end of the ball game and catch up on some threads at LT.
FRIDAY -  First, I kissed my hubby off to his weekend with the boys.  Then I went to get my hair done, stopped at the library to return 3 books, and then stopped at the grocery store to purchase some comfort food to keep me happy while 
SATURDAY -  Easy day, just finishing Fountainhead for Book club, watching a doubleheader for the Orioles vs. Dodgers, and start audio while I play some games.  Mac & cheese for dinner - yum!
SUNDAY -  A quiet day of reading and baseball. My sweetie returned from his boys weekend.
