Gathering Graces 2/25/2017

*Paul and I piled into the car and headed over to Coeur d’Alene to do some shopping.  First stop was The Lockerroom where Paul got his haircut.  Next stop was Costco, where we did some shopping for ourselves, and for Mom.  For a Saturday, it actually wasn’t too busy in Costco today.  Then we headed up to Fred Meyer.  Well, I drove, Paul jogged over. Our last stop was Lowe’s, where I purchased some items for a project I am working on.  Then we headed home to then unload everything.
* While walking in Fred Meyer, a woman was watering the primroses, and I couldn’t resist purchasing some to add a bit of spring color to the still wintry landscape around our home.  (We woke up to about an inch of snow this morning, and more is expected to come!)
*It was family dinner again tonight over at Christy and Everett’s.  We went to Mom’s house a little early so we could unload all her items we got for her, and put them away.  Then she bundled up and got her walker, and we trekked over next door.  Christy prepared a delicious dinner of lemon marinated chicken, wild rice blend, fresh veggies and some beets.  We had some cookie bars for dessert.  We got to enjoy the new recliner her and Everett purchased this last week, and it was very comfortable.  Their dog Tucker and I played tug the rope, capture the rope, throw the rope until the Gonzaga basketball game began.  We watched the first half there, then Mom was ready to head home.
*We watched the second half at home, and saw the Zags lose to the BYU Cougars.  I am hoping for good things for The Zags during March Madness!!
*The Zags may have lost, but KHS had two big winners at the State Wrestling Tournament down in Nampa yesterday.  Taylor Bush, who is a freshman, won second in his category, and Tanner Figueroa, one of my Gear Up and NHS students, won first place as a senior this year!!  Everyone is so proud of, not only these two boys, but the whole wrestling team!!  Way to go boys!!  Go WILDCATS!!!
