Day 17 – Better Every Day

2017-12-15 22.41.56
Day 16 A little tired!

It was a wonderful day!  Of course I slept until 11:30 but that is expected anymore.  But I got my chores done before Kat got home from her visit to the library and we shared lunch together.  Peanut butter and jelly for her, straight peanut butter for me! I just can’t taste the jelly so I forgo it…lol.  Next we went out and got the Mrs tools together for Zoo Lights.  It a a wonderful thing the turners club participates in every year.  We turn on Friday and Saturday nights during the month of December at the Jacksonville Zoo during their Zoo Light Holiday Celebration.  We turn small items, Christmas trees, snowmen, angels, cars, tops, etc., and give them to children who are watching us turn.  They are amazed to see blocks of wood turn into the object of their choice.  I had not signed up due to the treatment, but after a nap this afternoon decided to tag along.

We had dinner at McDonald’s – woo hoo!  But I could kind of taste the fries and I did eat a Big Mac.  We met Loretta and our good friend Ray at the zoo and the 4 of us switched off turning from 6:00 until 9:30.  It was nice to get out and as I said it is such a treat to be able to make something for a child.  Their smiles and surprise make the whole season a little sweeter.  As I said it was a good day and hopefully I will be able to go again tomorrow night, but it is 11:30 and I need to head to bed.  I hope that you all had a great start to your weekend!
