My week began with our Red Hat outing. This year The Royal Purple Belles was celebrating our 11th anniversary of being chartered. Our group was the first group to be chartered in our community and was started by my bff and myself. We just kept saying we needed one more member!
We all enjoyed ourselves at
The Harborside. I enjoyed the Apple Bourbon Chicken! YUM!
We played a game of bingo. I won a Word Search book and a Magnetic List to put on the fridge.
Later that week, I found out that a friend of mine had lost their brother to suicide. This is the second suicide of someone that I knew (very casually) within a month! Both people were married with a family and looked like they had it all. Both were close to my age. We went to the "celebration of life" as they call the visitation now for the brother. My friends were doing pretty well, all things considering. The woman had been my best friend in high school and always introduced me as her high school sweetheart! We spoke with the former mayor (also a classmate of mine). It was strange to get a hug from him!
I have been "reuniting" high school classmates on Face Book. One of them is an artist. She made this beautiful brooch, and I am in LOVE with it. (I think it speaks to my vanity).
I could either frame it, or she has attached a vale so I could wear it as a necklace! She has been holding it for me. I think my son will buy it for me for Mother's Day.
Happy Mother's Day to you! Nothing special planned here. Jim has to work out of town.
