Looking Forward to My weekend!!!!

I am flying off today with my best friend Barbie and her daughter Laura, along with my oldest daughter Ashley. We are going to New Orleans. I am so excited! Weekend with the girls !!!It will most likely be centered around good Cajun food!!!! Walking, seeing, buying, eating. Cafe DuMonde and Beignets, Muffaletta sandwich from the Central Grocery- throw in some fine dining, not sure where yet. The shops on Canal, the Market, did I mention Pralines! The Church at Jackson Square. Shopping , eating. A little sleep. More walking, seeing, eating. I love New Orleans and have not been there since Katrina, so I will have new sights and surely some old familiar yummy ones. If you read this today, say a little prayer for Lorie and Barbie, remember we don't appreciate the joys of flying. I just have to keep repeating God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and a sound mind. That, and prayer and my little encouragement pill usually work. Oh my, I'm getting nervous, let me get back to my wonderful list, some etoufee or red beans will be nice. My hotel has a Starbucks that's an extra blessing. Mostly, I thank God, I get to get away with my sweet daughter ( she does not fear flying), just me and her -some quality time. I'm not even going to drag my computer with me so, I guess it will be next week before I'm back to reading and writing. Until then...

BE blessed!

I am so looking forward to hearing about your trip when you get back. I am sorry I missed your call. I was at the tractor pull and did not hear the phone and then it was later when I saw it.

Hi Lorie, Hope you had a wonderful, relaxing weekend in New Orleans. I've never been there, something I hope to experience someday.
Have a wonderful week.
