Really I shouldn't.
Be posting that is.
You see I am taking some very strong steroids right now.
The poison Sumac got the better of me and as much as I hate to give in, I had to. It is not only on my arms but my forehead, cheeks and back of my neck.
I just couldn't take it one more minute.
The steroids make me feel loopy.
So I am not taking responsibility for this post, nope, read it at your own risk!!!
I will now attempt, in my precarious state of mind to post the final photos from our day trip.
I will do my best, so here goes.
Alto Pass, Illinois
Again, more curvy, winding, surprisingly beautiful, winding roads.
We're getting closer....
Oh my gosh was my husband in hysterics here.
You see I was much too close to the edge for my husband.
He is very afraid of heights.
You wouldn't know it but he almost had a meltdown!
That is a huge, gigantic, drop off behind him!
Not to worry, I didn't push it, or him, HeHeHeHe.....
I know that he appreciated the view despite his fears.
It was so UNLEVEL here, I felt safer walking barefoot.
There are no fences, just a giant drop off.
Yes this is in Illinois!
You may or may not have heard of "Bald Knob Cross".
It is a gigantic metal cross that has been around for a long time.
If I were in my right mind I would put up a link so that you could read about it's history.
But alas, I am not in my right mind , feeling tired and my skin burns SO,
I will just tell you that it is being redone and if I could have climbed eight stories I could have gotten some better photos! Ha!
You can't tell from the photo but it overlooks the whole pass,
You see when you visit my blog, you must use your imagination!
Unfortunately I wasn't blessed with the wonderful photo skills that you all seem to have.
But that's alright because I know what wonderful imaginations you all have!
Just a little ditty, now that Katie is a sophomore, she has off campus lunch. And since she is not working yet, she has decided that it would be great if her and her friend come home for lunch everyday.
We live just a few blocks from the H.S.
Shhhhhh, don't tell anyone but she now expects me to make these gourmet lunches everyday.
During my nap time.
I guess I am a little excited as this brings back memories of when Kate was in the third grade, but than again.......
cooking lunch and dinner all in one day?! With my knees?!!!!
Today's Lunch Menu
Broiled open faced Feta cheese chicken salad sandwiches on fresh french bread,
with colby jack cheese melted on top.
Fresh from the DIL's garden garlic dill pickle chunks
Frito Lay's Sea salt and Black Pepper Kettle Chips.
Anyone have any ideas for tomorrow involving ham and cornbread?
