Company Girl Coffee





Good morning, Company Girls and other friends! Pull up a chair and pour you some coffee! Today I'm indulging in a mocha from Dunkin Donuts. 

Because it's Friday. 

If it wasn't Friday, my excuse would be that it's NOT Friday and I need consolation.

Anyway, this has been a lengthy week. 

Monday I felt like death warmed over, with a migraine just about all day long.  However! I looked up a video on YouTube which showed a specific spot to press on the hand - around where the thumb joins the rest of the hand - and pressed with my thumb on top of my hand and my forefinger underneath.  Hard.  So hard, in fact, that there is still a faint mark on my left hand from my thumbnail digging in.  But you know what? It worked! I had never paid much creedence to acupressure but now I am definitely a believer.  So that was my revelation of the week.

Power of Attorney paperwork was finally signed, hooray! So now Rob can actually speak to the insurance company and other such important folks.  It was a real load off to get that completed.

My basil and parsley are sprouting! I took pictures and bellowed "ALIVE! ALIVE! THEY'RE ALIVE!" as I did so.  I will be posting them at another time.

It has been decided that we are hosting Easter! I'm really excited.  RD does so well around people and even though I'm sure we'll have to remind him a bunch of times, he was very receptive to the idea.  I don't want to do anything that will, you know, infringe upon his life or his household.  But he said the more people, the better.  So we'll hold him to that.

Lastly, tonight is Date Night! This should be a good one.  Rob is taking the train into town, where he'll meet up with me as I have a drink and catch up with a friend I haven't seen in a while.  He and I will have dinner.  And then we're going to see the Philly Pops perform a concert devoted to Big Band music.  So! Excited! I love that genre, I really do, and so does Rob.  We're both looking forward to it.

Too bad the temps dropped so much today! Oh well, spring should be coming back next week! :-)

I hope everyone has a terrific weekend and can't wait to catch up with all of my Company Girl friends today!

I LOOOOOOVE the hand pressing trick. Works pretty well with my migraines. It kinda feels like a mini hand massage, too!

Have a great date night!!! Miss you bunches!!!!

I'm glad you were able to get rid of that headache. I'll pass that tip along to my friends who suffer them.

How nice to get a date night. My husband is coming home tomorrow, and we're long overdue for one. Perhaps we can plan one for when my parents-in-law are here next weekend. I guess we're hosting Easter too. I imagine that your culinary skills will make for a delightful celebration at your place.

Have a blessed weekend and week as you prepare!

Thanks for stopping by today! I've never had a migraine, but I've heard of that tip and pleased to know that it actually works. My son has terrible migraines and I will definitely pass this along to him. Enjoy your date tonight and blessings for a great week-end!

Glad to hear that the acupressure worked. I have heard that before.

I used this recipe for the truffles. http://joyceandnorm.wordpress.com/2010/03/26/our-week-in-photos-week-13-of-52-2/ I got a tip from a friend to use disposable gloves to ball them up. I'm going to go with this recipe from Pioneer Woman next time because she uses condensed milk (which my friend does too) and seems a bit easier than having to deal with the softened cream cheese. http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2009/10/chocolate-truffles-with-sea-salt/ I love how PW posts photos so you can see how's going on. Either way I think they are too yummy, and I ate too many. =p

Enjoy your date night!

Yeah for plants that are ALIVE!! I'm hoping to be able to celebrate my plants being alive in a few months when it's time to harvest! If I can, it'll definitely be a first! :)

HOpe you had a lovely date night! Sounds like a great evening. We are FINALLY starting to see some spring weather around here. I hope it decides to stay!

I'm so trying the accupressure thing. I've had a headache all day and it's getting worse.
Hope you have a great date night.

I think I did the same thing when my basil and chives sprouted. The parsley took another 2 weeks, and I shouted and pulled my husband over to admire it when I noticed the little sprouts! I think he thought I was crazy. Maybe you can understand :)

Thanks for the invitation to visit!

I'm writing for you. I'm speaking to you.

So I would like to hear from you in return. Did that story make you laugh, or think? Does that recipe look good? Do you relate to me or totally disagree?

Let me hear what YOU think!
