Sunday was Father's Day. After church, Daughter met us at Ruby
Tuesday for lunch. I am thankful for the Daddy I had growing up and miss him. It makes Father's Day bittersweet.
Tuesday, I left home early taking Smokey Bear to his annual vet visit. When we got home, I set his carrier down, opened the door and left again. I stopped by Kroger, purchased flowers and fruit and went to visit a friend who is recovering from knee replacement surgery. She is in a nearby rehabilitation center. She was in therapy when I arrived so most of my visit was with her husband. He is staying with her pretty much 24/7 and I think he was happy to have company. I only visited with her for a few minutes as she was in a lot of pain after the therapy.
Back home, I had a message from a cousin who lives in Florida but was in Alabama visiting. We arranged for them to come for dinner. I didn't really have anything on hand to make for dinner so I went to the local Barbecue place and picked something up. We ate picnic style, that is I didn't dish up the food but left it in the containers it came in and we ate on paper plates. The visit was much more important than the dinner anyway. I had not seen her in 7 years so we had a lot of catching up to do.
Tomorrow I need to buy groceries. Its been 2 weeks since I shopped. At 1:00 I am meeting friends for tea at a new tea room, Tea and Thee.
Today, I'm just doing laundry and reading.
