Still in the shop!

They have had it for a week and the wrong part was delivered on Friday. Too late to reorder until Tuesday. Won't get the part until Wednesday. Three weeks and lots of $'s later, we might see the truck this next week. It better run like new. In the last year we have put new brakes, rebuilt transmission, replaced radiator, fuel pump and ignition on the truck. Hopefully it will be good for another 100,000 at least. We plan on getting a new car in the near future and giving it to our daughter. I want to make sure it is dependable and safe. It may be 13 years old, but it is in good shape and should last a few more years. Enough about that...
Today, I spent a few hours beading a necklace for my mom. Hopefully she likes what I came up with for her. At least I got something done that was fun. I plan on beading a rope for my niece. She picked out some gray and black sead beads that she wanted put into a spiral rope. She has a glass parrot bead that she wants to hang from it. I am going to try to start on that one tomorrow, after I plan dinner for hubby. Three day week ends are great. I get caught up around the house enough, so that I can do other things that are fun.
He has been working lots of hours and finally has a day off tomorrow. Thought I would BBQ some steak and fix up some pasta salad and black beans for dinner and then whip up a chocolate cake with fudge frosting for desert. I have been craving the cake myself, may as well get it out of my system so I don't eat more than I should. Since he works 6PM to 6AM, he will be sleeping all day, so I will have the kitchen to myself. No one to look over my shoulder and tell me how to cook (I hate that).
Well it is late and I need to get up early to cook some breakfast for hubby when he gets home in the AM.
