The weekend was started and the next day I went to Grandson Collin's birthday party. We were celebrating his 13th birthday. How fast he has grown. The party was fun and ended with a few taking a trip down the road on his new skateboard. Not me...I like terra firma. He and his brother, Tyler, are spending the rest of the week at my daughter's lake house. Hope they have good weather, so they can have fun on the lake.
Joe is still nursing a hurting back. The first epidural doesn't seem to have helped, so maybe he will try a second. Hopefully he can get relief without surgery. We have the dedication of the Grotto coming up on the 12th.
We spent yesterday here at home, watching all the Memorial Day doings on TV. Joe went through the whole war in the Pacific on TV. I heard booms, guns, and other war sounds coming from the TV set all afternoon. I was busy in the kitchen. We were going to have grilled chicken. I fixed a seafood quiche, and a green salad with a homemade sweet pepper vinaigrette and asparagus. I put some spears of asparagus on top of the quiche in a spoke pattern. Just as the grill started cooking the chicken, we had a downpour of 1 inch of rain in a short time. The gutters were overflowing it came down so fast. Here we sat in the house watching the rain, while the grill cooked away. First chance, Joe got out to the grill and brought the chicken in. We finished it in the oven for a few minutes. This meal tasted so good. Later in the day, we were both hungry for chocolate. I whipped up a one layer devils food cake and frosted it with chocolate frosting. This satisfied our craving for chocolate. All in all...it was a nice day at home.
Today, the sun is shining, and I am waiting for the bushes to dry off. I think that I will trim our evergreens in the front. They are growing fast and I want to give them a haircut. This is usually Joe's job, but he really can't do it this time. I can see the grass out the window. It has grown by leaps and bounds...since the weekend. Our guy will be here today or tomorrow to mow. A Robin family is out hopping around the front yard. The worms should be plentiful this morning. Gotta go now.....have a great day.
