1. For Mom's birthday, next door neighbor, Jane, brought delicious Pho and spring rolls from Pho Thanh in Coeur d'Alene and the soup was delicious and warming and the rolls were tasty. It is a gift that will keep on giving -- we have another helping in the fridge for another meal.
2. Mom has been awaiting the arrival of a new oval rug for the TV room and it arrived today and I managed, without breaking any windows or lamps, to wrestle it out of the lengthy oblong box and roll it out for Mom. She is very happy with it -- although she is still unhappy with the slipcover on the sofa.
3. It was a great day for soup as Mom and I each enjoyed a bowl of leftover ham and bean soup and Mom baked some flaky biscuits, a great compliment to the soup.
