Maxine's Schedule.

Whenever Mr. Hawthorne plans one of his trips to visit his mother and sisters, I always shoot off an email to Maxine inquiring about the availability of her sofa bed for that particular weekend. And she always graciously welcomes me. We wine and dine, reminisce and laugh, and celebrate with friends and family Usually Brother Hawthorne and Sister In Law Hawthorne drop by. Sometimes even Sistah Hawthorne and Brother In Law Hawthorne are there. Limitless possibilities. Maxine is the ultimate hostess and it's always a pleasure to bask in her hospitality.
I noticed Maxine's engagement calendar next to my bed and I could not not look at it. I apologize, Maxine.
Before I show it to you all, please be aware that I asked permission first - not that it's all that revealing since I think Maxine and God are the only ones who can decipher it.
I arrived on Friday the 25th. And Maxine has my initials penned in there. Somewhere. I'm exhausted just looking at this.
February looks even worse.
January was a total bitch. Thanks, Maxine, for squeezing me in! If you'd like the bible passages, here they are: March Psalm 141:2 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. February Matthew 13:32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. January Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every on to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. Next post - Saturday Night Dinner With Maxine And Carmen.
