Friday we played Mahjong again. In the meantime Ted has been shooting every day, the reason he likes this park and area so much. I attended my Instant Pot cooking class Saturday, we attended Mass, went to Cracker Barrel for dinner and then to see Murder on the Orient Express with Tom and Eileen. Our tickets were $2.44 each!
Lots of football this week and Ted talking to the TV but I am used to that. I have to admit some games have had exciting ends! Eileen and I played Mahjong in the afternoon and then I watched the Vikings/Saints game with Ted. I had no horse in the race so I didn't care who won. But what a finish!!
Our granddaughter Morgan and Kara's husband Bill will be Confirmed this Spring in Michigan, They had to do an outreach program over the weekend and were at a nursing home. My grandson, Sam, along to make it a family event, helped Miss Davis play bingo and win a bag of chips and a lottery ticket. She held his hand the entire time. Such a sweet picture.
Monday I was planning to go to my Swedish weaving class but instead we went to find a shoe repair store and then made a stop at HEB. Not exciting but it was nice to just spend unhurried time together. We go in so many different directions so much of the time.
Tuesday dawned cold with a bit of freezing rain. Shooting was out so we donned our down jackets and joined Tom and Eileen at the Texas Expo at McAllen's convention center. I think everyone had the same thought because it was so crowded. We heard some great entertainment, picked up lots of info and a zillion handouts - eyeglass wipes, key chains, toothpaste, pill boxes, lots and lots of pens, etc. We got a few bigger items too. Each of us received a window shade cover for our vehicles (for when normal Texas weather returns), a 6 pack cooler plus an HEB coupon book with great coupons, the kind you can use - $2 each off eggs, milk, meat, fruit, etc. Eileen won a door prize (again!). Last year was a Sleep Number pillow, this year a decorative metal container but I am not sure what all was in it. I remain in zero territory not only in Mexican Train but door prizes too! Collectively we won a double cheeseburger, chili cheese hot dog, a sundae plus a $2 coupon for Star's Drive-In restaurant. We'll go there when the weather is better. For fun we had our photo taken!
We received a B1G1F coupon for Cowboy Chicken, a place I have wanted to try. After showing Eileen where the shoe repair was and dropping off her shoes, we headed to the restaurant. Great rotisserie chicken and fresh vegetables. And a first - a sink in the restaurant to wash and dry your hands! It was getting colder by the minute and the wet was going to turn to ice before too long so we headed home.
Ted had leftover meatloaf for dinner, I just had a yogurt and some crackers. It was icy outside so everyone stayed put. Eileen sent a photo of the chicken soup they made with their lunch leftovers.
Just another week, albeit a cold one, in the valley!
