Not a very interesting day but the steroids seem to be helping with the rash. Although my left arm still looks as though an eyeball is growing on it! I woke in the middle of the night scratching it so hard that it woke me up. I suppose that's what I get for not wearing my sock with the toe cut out, over it. I will wear it tonight for sure.
My Katie girl is back to school, this being her second year in high school. She is still as spirited as ever (full of attitude). I am sure you can see it in the photo.
Her days are longer this year. She doesn't get home till almost four and leaves at eight. Needless to say she has been tired after school and cranky too!
She and her friend came home for lunch today. I was going to use Wanda's suggestion and make a salad with ham cubes and cornbread but I remembered that Katie said that she had a taste for bow tie pasta and I had bought some over the weekend.
So I fixed some homemade meat sauce for the pasta and broiled some slices of french bread with garlic butter and Parmesan cheese, sprinkled with Italian seasonings.
Again they scarfed down their food and took off! Honestly, can we say "Thank you" ?!!!
I think I may make something with the leftover chicken that I baked last night. Or the salad, we'll see how creative I feel tomorrow!
My son stopped over today after work. I asked if he could string some more clothesline for me as I have trouble getting it taut. The above photo was taken while Jake was still on vacation. We went over to the kids house for a cookout while Kate was at camp.
Honestly I think that was the most relaxing evening I had that week.
That was pretty much all I did. Sit with my feet up and take pictures. Well not the whole time! My granddaughter Sarah took me on a tour of "Her" garden!
She is quite the little farmer girl and I went home with a bag specially picked vegetables just for me!!
Well I guess I didn't get them in this photo, but they are there, in the back! You'll just have to take my word for it on this one!
She also had to show me "Her" flower garden. It was really pretty. I think she may have had some help from mom.
There was this Angel statue in the garden. It belonged to my mom. She had two of them. I have the other. I felt her there as I looked at it.
And Sarah still remembers her grandma Annie too.
A couple of my boys, relaxing.
And one ........
That doesn't know the meaning of the word!
Except for sometimes when he's in his mama's arms.
That was a fun evening.
And as for today, just an ordinary one. I have some great smelling clothes from being hung out. But I am sure that novelty will wear off as soon as the weather starts to turn.
Hopefully I'll be able to get a new dryer soon. But in the meantime, it's not so bad hanging them outside.
Katie is back to her teenagery self and all is right with the world once again.
