Shine Out of Your Face

I loved this inspiration:
You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth
and a double chin and stick-out teeth,
but if you have good thoughts
they will shine out of your face
like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
Roald Dahl, 1916-1990
The word of the day today is cavalier (kav-uh-LEER adjective 1: debonair ; 2: marked by or given to offhand and often disdainful dismissal of important matters). This one is easy. The HR personnel at my old place of work has a cavalier attitude about my last paycheque. I wonder if they would be so cavalier if it was their own paycheque that someone forgot to mail them...

Last night we skipped the healthy made at home supper and went out to Lucky 7, a local sports bar, for a hamburger and fries. Ugh. After all was said and done I had wished we stayed home and tried the Curried Pumpkin Soup that I saw a recipe for on another blog. Live and learn. I'll do the soup on Sunday or Monday and serve it with homemade biscuits.

Xbox 360 4GB Console with KinectIt was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for a drive into town for some groceries and yes, finally, xbox! We got everything we need for our party tomorrow night - lots of food, and the plates and bowls to serve it all with. Then we headed over to Future Shop. They finally had the xbox kinect bundle but no e-reader cover yet. We'll wait to set it up till Sunday as tomorrow we'll be busy getting ready for our party. We used to have huge parties once or twice a year with sometimes up to 75 people but we haven't had a proper party for several years. Retirement is good for the social life!
