A little pampering and lots of fun activities

This week I used my livingsocial.com coupons and got a facial and a pedicure and eyebrow wax.   I said no to the free glass of wine since my pedicure was at 10 a.m.  On Monday I took my friend and neighbor Kathy out for lunch at Travelers Rest’s Williams Hardware Cafe for her birthday and we had a nice long chat. 

I made a couple beautiful new cards at the monthly “card party”.  Will take photos soon. 

We toured SAGE Automotive Interiors Plant, previously owned by Miliken, just a few miles from our house.  They make thread and then weave it into fabric and dye it for about 70% of the major car companies for your car seats and any other interior fabric in your car.   I will never look at a car seat the same way again.   The amount of technology that goes into all the things you take for granteded in a car seat is staggering.   Wow, what an operation.  We also found out that they make all the white fabric for Mormon underware/garments and much of the camaflouge fabric for the military.   Who knew this happened only a few miles from our house?

Friends of ours from Newcomers got invited through their church to a dress rehersal for “The Foreigner” at the Greenville Little Theater.  Very funny and surprising.  We went out to dinner before hand  at “The Green Room” (where we used a livingsocial coupon) in downtown Greenville.  It was so nice we got to eat outside.  Can’t beat that. 

Sunday we went to Furman to see “Lisistrata” written by Aristophanes in 411 BC.  A very, very bawdy, hilarious play.  I laughed until I cried.  Reminded me a little of a Monty Python producton.  I don’t know how they performed it 2400 years ago but this was a musical/dance version.  The young actors looked like they were having a blast.

Bob’s young friend James, age 16, who he met at Woodworkers classes, came over this week to work on a project of his in Bob’s shop.   James helped Bob build his workbench last fall.  What a very nice talkative young man.  Bob is being a good mentor to him.  It’s good to have youth around you.

Don’t worry, we are not running out of things to do.   We have 10 more activities planned yet for April.
