Have started to call several times – but each time some sort of 'something' happens. Might try to call tomorrow AM – but want to get the pictures – etc in the mail!
I did copy the pattern of the Christmas bags – and made several out of scraps getting the pattern the way I was happy with it! Wait till Christmas – they sure beat wrapping packages! Thanks for the loan – so I could make the pattern!
Did some summer clothes shopping yesterday. Bought some nice black walking shorts 2/ a nice top, the shorts had been $24.00 – they were on sale for $5.99 – and the blouse had been $38.00 – and it was marked down to $9.99. I'll no doubt be taking them cruising. This time of year there are so many good summer clothes bargains – I just hate to turn them down!
I've lost the weight I put on going down the Mississippi + on vacation. Would like to keep my weight about where it is now –
Anxious to hear how the trip went to Pittsburg – & about the service for Aunt Virginia. I'm sorry that I don't live closer - to be able to have gone to the service – and to be able to have seen her while she was alive.
The Church where I've been going has had the series of films by Charles Swindoll – Improving Your Serve. Have seen 4 of the films & they really are good. Alot of our residents have been going too - they have also enjoyed the films.
Have you all read Robert Schuller's new book – Tough
I'm trying to be 'tough' in regard to M. I'm tired of trying to "walk around" the house like on egg shells - she has been increasingly more touchy - really can make it very unpleasant.
I think we would be better off to go our separate ways – tho it would be a huge hassel [sic] w/so much "common" property. Right now she would have all to lose $ wise - since here, no Rent, utilities, etc.
I've tried to talk w/ her - but she isn't easy to "work" things out. There have been some improvements since I mentioned going separate ways. M has so many good points – I'll keep you all posted.
Now Monday AM – will get this in the mail –
Much love, Roberta
PICTURES – are for you all to keep. Sending some extra of Dad, Aunt Mary & Grandma – for you all to distribute –
I'll be glad to have extras made of any others – just let me know.
Sorry it has taken so LONG for these –
