Starting the week off
We had Rain last night and this morning. It was a nice steady rain too -the kind that will be good for the garden.
But I was not feeling up to snuff today. Just one of those days and since it was still raining I started to work on a little crochet cap for one of the great-grandbabies. I got it half completed and
My beautiful daughter and her handsome other half showed up and started to build me a front porch once again. I am SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO very thrilled. But I felt so darn bad I was no help at all - all I could accomplish was Appreciate them . ~smile~
She also brought the fixings for a smoothie and I was thrilled about that. Since I had run out of all my frozen fruits and most other ingredients too I was so tickled to have a nice fresh one. It felt so good on my tummy. I had fixed a kale and onions and eggs plate this morning but I had a little bit too much onion compared to the kale and the onion was Very strong so it overwhelmed the dish and left my tummy unsettled all day long - UNTIL - the smoothie. What a relief!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then later the kids got a pizza and it was a nice treat. We did not eat it all so I will probably have it tomorrow for lunch.
I am so blessed to have such a wonderful daughter. I am so very grateful. When she was first born I told her that I did not know anything at all about raising a baby so I guessed we would be each other's "guinea pigs" through life. Now my life is getting to those later chapters I can never appreciate her enough. She is kind and funny with a heart of gold for her Mom. She is generous and beautiful and has a big streak of stubbornness that she got honestly from a double dose of her Mom and Dad. I have wanted to protect her from life's hard knocks but have not been able to do that, so she has been tested and come through the fires a strong woman, who amazes me . She has found a wonderful man that I treasure and I hope that he is strong enough to survive and thrive.
