A Day in the Life of this Traveler

Jodie and I spent the day tidying, cleaning, sorting, sharing stories, and laughing.

We started with a scrumptious waffle breakfast, followed by a quick trip to Fred Meyer for some car cleaning supplies. Then we gave her vehicle a good twice over - removing unneeded items, organizing needed items, vacuuming, Armour-All-ing the inside, and washing the outside.

As a reward for a job well done? Soup, salad and breadsticks at Olive Garden for our Easter supper. Then another stop at Fred Meyer to see if they had some car organization items for me (they didn't, so I placed an order on Amazon).

Back home, we poured through Pinterest and YouTube, getting a more firm grasp on how to make the bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres for her wedding. Then we did an adhesives test on the party favors. We'll have the results tomorrow. Pro hint: never use E-6000 indoors without superior ventilation.

Next? Back to Fred Meyer for some wedding supplies (Thankfully, the store is only a couple blocks from her home). Since they don't carry all the supplies we need, and the store we need to purchase said items from was closed on Easter, we found more sorting and organizing fun in Jodie's craft room until bedtime.

The tulips? (Jodie took the photo). They are a gift from Kenny to Jodie. Jo placed this bouquet in my room to welcome me with beauty and color. She's a wonderful hostess, a thoughtful young woman, and an extremely fun companion. I'm so happy to have the love and friendship of this amiable daughter. Dale and I raised her, but she's blooming on her own.
