What a great weekend!  We dined on meals from around the world.  Friday night was Indian food.  We have the BEST small, family owned place in the neighborhood.  They are so patient spending lots of time with their customers making sure the food is to their liking.  Yum.

Saturday night we hadn't planned anything until the last minute.  My daughter will squeeze a penny until it screams.  She found a replacement 52" TV for the one that broke previously last week.  We have Beg, Barter, Buy, Sell computer sites around here.  The TV that quit working was purchased from one.  Anyway - she found another on BBBS - for $100.  Good deal I guess, but we will see how long it lasts.

To get to the point, she couldn't get the back row seats in the Tahoe to fold down, so she called me.  At least my little Highlander will happily fold its seats down!  So she suggested to pay me back for that we get Taco Cabana.

I ate such rich foods last weekend that I am still recuperating.  I discovered my old digestive system is very finicky.

Spending the time with all of them was such fun.  Saturday was packed.  They first tried to see if some kittens could be adopted from another of our friends.  It. Was. A. Disaster!  When asked if I thought it would someday work out for all the animals, my answer was simple.  No.

Then we had lunch, and headed to let Katie get her third ear piercing.  Whatever!

There is/was a little used book store that was closing.  I got two grocery bags and one large paper bag of books for $30.  I bought for the girls, but I have enough reading material to last me (probably) several years.  Couple the books with the Kindle, and I really believe I am set for life.

Surely loved the weekend!  It was all good.

Oh Gosh, Karen---that sounds like so much fun!!! It's been hard lately, for me to accept the fact that the grandkids are grown and don't have "stuff" that I can go see or take part in. Enjoy all of it that you can.

That sounds like a nice weekend. I'd like to know more about your daughter's penny pinching ways. Bet she had a good teacher.

Gotta love a bag full of books! I have several on my bookshelf along with a bunch on my Kindle waiting for me to read. As slow as I have been reading anymore I'm probably set for life, too!
