The Almost Dinner Party


Hello, Dear Ones.
Well, let me tell you about it.

Mr. Precious and I had invited two couples to join us for dinner last week.
They said, "Yes! We'd love to come!"

A couple of hours before they were to arrive, one couple called and couldn't come because of a last minuet happening. 
Okay, I'll just take away a couple of place settings.

Then the other couple called and couldn't come! 
Poop! Had they planned this?
Naw, just life happening so we postponed it for next week.

I was going to have a taco salad and dessert. 
Everything was chopped, the lettuce, tomatoes, onions and had my guacamole made but I hadn't cooked the hamburger meat yet!
So I was good!

I had used some plates I found at Marshalls many years ago.

The napkins I used were from Dillards years ago and matched just perfectly I thought.

I only have four dessert/salad plates so Mr. Precious and I gave the plates to our almost guests.

My old faithful glasses show up a lot on my tables.

Now will I change my table for next week?
Maybe, maybe not, well, I would clean the weekly dust off the dishes. ;)
But...

But for now I'm enjoying my little centerpiece with flowers from the grocery store.
Don't take much to make me happy! :)
Just sayin'. :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

The Last Song

Did you know I'd go to sleep
And leave the lights on
Hopin' you'd come by
And know that I was home and still awake
But two years go by and still my lights on
This is hard for me to say
But this is all that I can say

It's the last song I'll ever write for you

It's the last time that I'll tell you
Just how much I really care
This is the last song I'll ever sing for you
You come looking for the light and it won't be there
But I love you, oh, yes I do, yes I do

All the times that I've spent waiting

Wondering where you are
Always knew the time would come
When I would start to wonder why
Now the time is here
I don't know where you are
So I'll write you one more song
But it's the last time that I'll try

It's the last song I'll ever write for you

It's the last time that I'll tell you
Just how much I really care
This is the last song I'll ever sing for you
You come looking for the light and it won't be there
But I love you, oh, yes I do, mmm mmm

It's the last song I'll ever write for you

It's the last song I'll ever write for you
It's the last song I'll ever write for you
It's the last song I'll ever write for you
It's the last song I'll ever write for you
