Haircut ~ Agate Thingy !~ Sourdough Bread

Good 63ยบ partially cloudy very late afternoon.
Late start today.

Pretty morning. Pressure is dropping and there is rumor
of rainfall later today or/and tomorrow. Swell. And I
didn't even wash my car!

I remember on April 1st I would always ruin my mother's first cup of coffee by substituting the sugar in the sugar bowl with salt. She never got mad. It was just an "April Fools" joke. Then on April 1st 1982 Jerry's brother Ron called to say their dad had died. Jerry said, "April Fools.... right?" Sadly, no. Sigh.....

Yesterday I had my hair cut .... SHORT! Yeah.

Then... I went to Jean's... my daughter-in-"love"s mom. (Stole the "love" part from my pal Judy who calls her daughter's husband, her "son-in-love") I had a question on my taxes and Jean is our resident expert. Thanks of the help Jean. Then it was to Hallmark for some cards and wrapping paper. Then to Albertson's. I had a coupon for Free Philly Cream Cheese Cooking Sauce...
Also had a coupon for $1.50 off and at the point of sale they had coupons for $1.50 off also. So I got three flavors... Italian and Herbs, Garlic, and Original all for $2.98 which would have cost me $8.97 @ $2.99 each regularly. Such a deal. Now to cook something with them....

I came home and got Maggie and we took a bottle of chard down to PJ and Dave's. It was a chat-fest about their two months gone to Quartzsite. Dave got lots of gold nuggets and PJ just enjoyed the warm dry weather. Dave took a class in Quartzsite on how to cut and polish rock. He said he was the "hit of the class" with his 'item' he made from layered agate. He cut and polished it and gave it to me as a gift. Awwwwww....

I about fell off the stool. It's 6 1/2" tall and if you turn it over the bottom is heart shaped. Dave, you are a nut!!! And I love ya!!!!

PJ brought me a "phone purse" with a frog on it. I love frogs. It's darling and also she gave me a polished agate snail....

It was a good day. Frank and his son Josh, super neat people!, came over and fixed my gate so it now opens and closes like it's supposed to. THANK YOU FRANK AND JOSH!
