So, how was last week for you? Pretty quiet around here but we did go to see Melissa McCarthy’s new movie, Life of the Party. It was a fun afternoon out and an enjoyable movie. I don’t often laugh out loud at a movie but I did with this one. It’s not going to win an Oscar but it was a great way to spend an afternoon. Hmmm, I’m sitting here trying to think of some more interesting things to tell you, but I guess I’m pretty boring these days folks! This bum knee is keeping me pretty close to home. So, let’s just get on with the menu plan.
