Today I got two new things. First, I got a small bag of MINT flavored M & M's. Since mint and chocolate are two of my favorite food groups, I was ecstatic. I thought I had had them before, but the more I ate of them, I decided I had not. Maybe they are new. I asked Prof if she thought if I took a small bag of them to the Dairy Queen, they would make me a Mint M and M Blizzard. She laughed and said that probably not, but if she knew someone who worked there, she would find out.
Secondly, Prof gave me an early early birthday present. She gave me a Nook Color. Wow! I am really enthused about it and want to learn all I can about how it works. I got an account set up at Barnes and Noble, and intend to use it. We were there at the time, so I could go on their wireless service, and even checked my e mail. Advanced technology at my fingertips. Now all I have to do is learn how to use it. Might take time, but I bet I can do it.
Prof and I spent the day with two of my cousins. We sat at Barnes and Noble in Indianapolis for about 2 hours and visited, then we went to Red Robin for lunch and spent another 2 hours visiting, then back to Barnes and Noble. After the cousins left to trek on home, Prof and I went to Hobby Lobby where I picked up a few things for my card crafting.
It was a great day. We all laughed a lot over the silly stuff that we remembered about our folks and I found out stuff that I never knew about my favorite uncle and aunt. I'm sure the cousins found out stuff about my side of the family they never knew. We shared some coveted recipes; one for brown sugar cookies that our great grandmother used to make. We always thought it was a secret kept in the family, but cousin R said that everyone had it. What a let down. LOL! Prof decided to spend a few days in Indy with a friend, so I came on home by myself, stopped at the grocery, and arrived safely. These days are priceless!
