Wow, 25 days away and it's already Christmas!!
I had a fun and busy week this week. First and foremost, George was in town from Louieville and he, Barb and I got together for our annual luncheon. We took him to Ricky P's this time which he loved!! Ricky is from New Orleans and makes the BEST food!! He has a place on 4th Street north and he's also at the Saturday morning market each week. We went on Tuesday as that is crab bisque day and you just die over it. The other thing I love there, or one of them anyway, is the shrimp po boy and then there's the dessert of bread pudding..oh my!! Here's some pic's from our lunch...
my fave..spicy crab bisque!
We were all sitting around talking about how unreal it is all be social security age now!! We remember when we all were in college and talked about how the 3 of us were going to live together and our combined income would be $21,000 which seemed like a million to us, lol. George has been up in Louieville for 30 years or more and loves it but comes home at least twice a year thank goodness.
Out back by Barb's pool..as you can see it was a beautiful, warm day!
I also had my first sub job this week in a 3rd grade class at my old school and LOVED it!! I had the best class and really enjoyed it. I also loved talked to everyone, the teachers, secretaries, HPO, everyone! Great to catch up and they all seem happy to see me too. I've got a job tomorrow at Bay Vista Fundamental and one on Monday too. I really don't want to work everyday but the jobs are coming in if I want them which is nice. I'm really going to enjoy this as I get to actually teach and not have to do all that other stuff that drives teachers crazy!
I'm off this morning to Whimsodoodle to make Tim Holtz's first Christmas tag. They provide everything and you pay $12 each time. They have a couple of the girls coming in at 6am each morning he does this, to make the tag for the day as a sample for us and to help us. Great deal and can't wait to do it! We use his pine cone die today which I'm anxious to try. I ran by there yesterday too to pick up my kit from Debby Schuh and can't wait to dig into that. LOVE that store!! Jill has everything in it I swear, every product out there it seems.
Okay, I'm outta here...have a great Thursday!
