At Leisure

I have my home all to myself! *Ü*

My daughter Melissa is in Washington D.C. visiting with her cousin, Tim. He is a student at American University, just about to start his senior year. On August 11, Melissa will begin her student teaching/credential program. This trip is their "last hurrah" before starting a very busy year! I hope they're having a blast!

My husband is in NY, on Long Island to be exact. He grew up in Queens, playing a game called "Slap Ball". (A game played with a soft ball where the aim is to keep the ball from hitting the floor/ground by "slapping" the ball upwards with the hand. Usually played in a circle of about 5-6 players but more or less players is just as good.) Every 5 years, a bunch of his buddies from the "hood" get together for a Slap Ball tourney! Mind you, these are 60 & 70 year olds! I hope he doesn't break anything!!!

So that leaves me, the dog & the cat to enjoy a weekend of doing what ever we want! Doesn't that sound lovely? I plan to take full advantage. Today, my girlfriend & I are going to our favorite Home Dec fabric store - Calico Corners! I haven't planned anything beyond that...nice!

I won't be around for a couple of days! See you early next week! Chris


  1. Oh Chris, that's terrific! I love having the house all to myself. And fabric shopping, that's top on my list of things to do. Unfortunately, we do not have a Calico Corners around here. But I do have Les Tissus Colbert, which is a home dec store that imports all their fabric from France. 120 inches wide and wider!!!

  2. Chris, sounds like a grand weekend to me.If you find some fabric , share it with us. Hope you have a great weekend.

  3. Hi Chris!
    Thanks for stopping by to see me! That's ok if you ever call me Edie Marie, I would consider it a compliment!! The Edie is for my Aunt and the Marie is for my Mom.
    Sounds like you are going to have a great weekend with some girl time and relaxation!
    Hugs, Sherry

  4. I sure hope that you had a great week-end! I've never been to a Calico Corners store -- only been able to look on the internet. :(

    Have fun!
