Another stellar weekend. P’s birthday is next week, so I decided to celebrate it with him THIS weekend, so he came over Friday night, spent the night (we were leaving early the next morning). He opened presents then we watched the original War of the Worlds. I made chicken tortellini and salad for dinner. We spent the next day thriftin’ and going to the movies.
Last year for his birthday, I created a scavenger hunt in which each clue led to a gift. This year I wanted to do something different, so I got him a gift for each letter in his name: re: P= Place Setting; I bought him a set of silverware at an estate sale and presented it in a bamboo drawer organizer along with 2 vintage fish salt & pepper shakers. “T” was the gift certificate to Tuesday Morning, C= his favorite cologne and so on. He loved it all and was definitely surprised by more than one of them.
It rained tonight, so I decided to go for a drive. It was excellent. So nice and cool. Out of all the songs I was listening to, this one was by far my favorite. Made me feel like Richard Gere in American Gigolo. LOL! Always loved Laura Branigan. This video was directed by William Friedkin! He’s directed some of my all-time favorite movies: Jade, Cruising, The Exorcist, To Live & Die in L.A. *sigh* Love it.

Before I get started on my weekend activities, have you seen/tried the new ‘Saturn‘ peaches (AKA Donut peach: Pan Tao peach and Saucer peach) from China?

They have a tiny version of the regular-sized peach pit and their flavor is a little more subtle than the average peach. I’d definitely recommend trying them. I’m LOVING them myself.
So…what’re the chances that I would have TWO great weekends in a row? First there was last weekend when P called me unexpectedly last Saturday morning and told me that he was on his way over to mow my lawn for me! I was like “What? No way! That’s so nice of you!” And practically as soon as I hung up the phone he was pulling into the driveway. I think it was one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me. He even edged! What a transformation! It looks beautiful! What a guy! Then, as I blogged about earlier, the next day was followed up by a little road trip of shopping and dining out. Continue reading
