Well I am happy to report that when I went to the Casino in Indio, CA earlier this week I was thankful to bring home the money I brought with me plus $260. more dollars. I like to play Keno and it has been awhile since I've hit 8 numbers but I hit it twice playing 20 cents a hand. They were about 40 minutes apart and it was 4,000 nickels each time! I really like that they print out tickets now because I remember all the years of dirty hands from the coins.
Mark and I went to see Last Vegas (IMDb) yesterday. I really enjoyed it and it was fun seeing them at the Aria which is where we had stayed in October when we were in Las Vegas! People were waiting in line already to see Hunger Games last night. It was a cold and rainy day here yesterday. I hope to see it soon because I loved the first one.
"Three sixty-something friends take a break from their day-to-day lives to throw a bachelor party in Las Vegas for their last remaining single pal."
Today I mailed out my 500th handkerchief from my "For Your Tears" blog. I still love the fact that it is a small ministry which allows me to keep up with it financially. This means I personally mail out approximately 125 handkerchief's each year. I have also made donations of 338 handkerchief's to people who have used them in the care packages that they give to the hospital in memory of their child.
I'm actually excited about Thanksgiving but I have to say that this year has just flown by so quickly. We will have the traditional turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn, green bean casserole and probably some sweet potatoes for me. No one else likes them so I usually bake a few for myself.
I usually have rolls but Adam is going to make some fresh bread for our feast. I am planning on making a Butternut Squash Soup too and we have a Cheesecake Factory Pumpkin Cheesecake for dessert. I am sure you will all agree with me that the best part is always the leftovers the next day!
I am also getting excited for my trip to Orlando on December 2nd. I will do two Disney World Parks like I did last year while Mark is at a convention. I think this year I will do Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. Last year I did The Magic Kingdom and Mickey's Christmas Party in the evening and also Epcot one day. Then we will go over to my dad's and visit with family for 3 days!!!
Hope everyone has a nice weekend!
