Sounds like an amazing day, Pam!! Other GrandmaMia6 Poor Connie! I'm so glad you're taking care of him.
artiemom I'm glad you're starting to feel better.
We spent Good Friday with our Grands. Such a great time! Our granddaughter and I made three batches of sticky buns and the last batch she did completely by herself. Everything turned out beautifully! I really think she could do it by herself as long as she took her time and didn't hurry. She wants to make doughnuts, so we're trying to figure out a day that her dad can bring her up to make doughnuts. While we're doing doughnuts, the guys are going to go fishing. We also had a long talk. Evidently, her other grandmother doesn't like her reading so much. She's a lot like me, in that she'll read anything she can get her hands on. She said, "I'm sorry, but I love to read." And I told her, "Never, ever apologize for your love of reading. Reading takes you everywhere!" We had sent Christmas money down to the Grands and she showed me the books she bought. She had some good books. But again, her other grandmother: You spent that much money on books? Well, yeah, she did. And it was her money to spend as she wished. (And to be honest, I'd do the same thing. When I was working, I used to use my Christmas bonus from my boss on cookbooks. One time when he gave me my bonus, he said, "Should I just give this to B and N in your name?")
I think I mentioned that our grandson broke his arm and dislocated his wrist playing basketball. It's going to be fine. He can't play his drums one-handed, but he's still teaching himself to play piano. He plays by ear and can't read music to save his life. He's pretty good! He was more than willing to eat the sticky buns. We all kind of went over-board on the sticky buns.
Anyway, it was a great day. Our DIL is in Africa; our son worked until 3:00, so it was just the Grands and us. We took masks along, but well, nobody wore anything. For the first time in forever. Everybody is vaccinated and we all said the heck with it. We ordered from Texas Roadhouse and ate dinner before we left. Got home around 8:30 last night. The cats were not amused....dinner was very late! And they're used to us being home all the time, so this was a big break in their routine. Can't wait for the Grands to visit!
And that's my day. Nothing really going on around here.
- Breakfast for the girls, no dishwasher to empty because we didn't run it last night. I'll need to scoop in a bit.
- Muffin and I were out for our walk. No wind and that makes a big difference in how cold it felt. I take her over to the trees and she sniffs each one. Then we went over to the shed to sniff there. Lots of birds in the yard. We saw a squirrel and she really yelled at him. We stayed outside for a while bc she wasn't out at all yesterday.
- I need to make my peanut butter pie for tomorrow and get it in the freezer. Check on the ham to see if it's thawed, Check on the pickled eggs and turn them.
ha!!!! How is Himself? How did you do with the vaccine?2) put 8 pair of pants on Freecycle (I think Covid-19 went to my hips) and someone took them
