What's Purple all over? Well, it's the colors for mom's 90th birthday bash. Bash? Naaaah, it's not a bash, it's to be a proper reception. She seems to be getting a little more excited about it now. Just talked to Linda and we're still clicking off items on the to-do list. She's coming down with a cold so isn't quite sure she can make it. Hope so - but if not, I have Plan B waiting in the wings. It's always a good idea to have a backup plan - maybe even two. I just peeked at the weather report both for her end of the trip and also for the venue and looks like it will be ok: cold but clear. Don't want the little geezer folks slipping on any icy patches - nor me, for that matter.
Linda found a list of advice written by a 90-year-old woman from Ohio that seems appropriate. So, while she was on the phone, I Googled, located, edited, and printed a copy. I'm planning to make sufficient copies to include one in each guest bag. One day next week Sweetz and I will head out to buy the remainder of goodies for the guest bags - thinking of little bags of peanuts - not sure what else. ??? microwave popcorn bags. And definitely something sweet. Do I dare trust myself to make cookies and decorate them? Ahhh, ideas are flitting through my brain.
Tomorrow is Sweetz' birthday - gotta get through that day first. Next is Christmas...THEN all hands on deck for the final Purple
details. Too bad we didn't have daughters - they are usually so nice to help with things like this. But God didn't favor us with daughters - but I plan to ask Him about that one day...
