Sorry for the lack of posting the past few days . . .
the dreaded stomach flu hit our home . . .
three of us out of seven . . .
and then two days later Cameron and I.
Not quite sure how we were so lucky!?
Today we all feel a bit better. So we are thankful for that.
We spent a bit of time outside . . .
felt really good except for the wind that I was sure was going to blow us away. Even our furry babies enjoyed sitting out.
Randy has the BIG Green Egg cooking away this afternoon.
He is trying his hand at Beef Brisket. I wish you could smell it cooking . . . Oh My Goodness!!!
It has several hours left to cook and will be a lovely dinner tomorrow. I can't wait! I also can't believe how excited he is to be quite the outdoor chef! I need to get him a KISS THE COOK apron.
Tonight, Katelyn is cooking . . .
she wanted to make homemade Cheesy Mac AND a type of spaghetti only with the elbow noodles.
The boys and I planted the flowers they received on Easter from Grandma and Grandpa. We had to wait for a bit warmer weather to plant them. After planting them, the boys began watering them . . .
only to hear Katelyn yell that there was water pouring out from under the kitchen sink. Apparently, the winter took its toll on the outside water faucet and it broke, causing water to flood under the kitchen sink, the kitchen floor and down into Katelyn's room.
Quite a mess!
Thankfully, under the sink was easily dried . . .
The faucet pipe can be repaired without much hassle and
Katelyn's room has ceiling tile and we have extra to replace it.
We are Thankful Katelyn heard water running and went into the kitchen to see what the water sound was or it could have been much worse.
Kamie is healing from her bladder infection. Our vet was wonderful with her . . . she prescribed meds for the infection and to help reduce the amount of inflammation she has from arthritis.
Dinner is over now . . .
Tonight must be prom night in our area. Plenty of suits and pretty gowns . . . of course, there are the parents and grandparents gathering with cameras flashing away.
Next week will be our Katelyn's turn . . .
She will be celebrating her school's rendition of Prom . . .
a Banquet with time of recognition and fun.
Katelyn has a few of her friends spending the night after all of the evening festivities . . . should be a great time.
I heard from my friend Marva . . .
she lives in Alabama and the Tornadoes were all around her home.
Thankfully, she and her family are safe.
While we are thankful friends are safe, we are also saddened that So many others suffered greatly. The loss of family, friends, homes, business . . . entire cities and towns.
Please continue to pray for those who have been devastated by the recent storms in the south.
