Joan had her wood burners going strong as did we. The guests coming in tonight are coming in from Oregon for a funeral and the mother of one of the guests called to arrange a very nice gift. As she is from Kentucky she asked if there was a way to order food for the apartment and was more than willing to pay for it. Yesterday I was going shopping anyway for groceries so I told her it would be better food and more of it for the price if I did the shopping. Below is what was provided.
There was fruit, 2 pounds of shaved black Forrest Ham, 2 pound of shaved honey roasted turkey, Munster cheese, 2 kinds of chips, crackers, coffee cake, milk, half and half, lettuce for the sandwiches, King Hawaiian rolls, 2 kinds of soup, fresh crunchy veggies of carrots, celery and red, yellow and orange peppers, ranch dip, mayo and of course candy bars.
The fridge was stocked, the lights turned on, the heat set to 70 and of course lots and lots of snow shoveling in front of the apartment and finally the apartment was ready for guests.
Mark came home early and got the snow tires on his car and my car is now up on the lift for tomorrow. We have tires ordered for the van but those will be put on at East Peoria Tire tomorrow if the roads are good. All the yard hydrants needed to make sure the hoses were disconnected as we are going to have a deep freeze tonight.
We were visited tonight by Super Girl, a gymnast and a My Little Pony. They came exclaiming, "trick or treat" and of course grandpa brought out the treats.
They didn't stay long as they had just started, their next stop was great grandma's and from there they went to Joan's house.
