Louis Dean had his follow up appointment with his primary care doctor this morning.
It was just routine she advised him to pace himself and not work so hard for so long. Take more breaks and rest often. He said he was embarrassed that he went to the ER and yet his heart checked out good! I was RELIEVED! Every single one of his doctors have told him it's better to be safe than sorry! I am so grateful to know his heart is holding up well after having stints put in back in 2009 and 2011. He is pumping right along!!
It was a beautiful day in Texas!
Our leaves are falling in earnest now and the air is on the chilly side.
I wore a denim over shirt all day!
The quads arrived around 11:30 or so - close to lunch time.
I served potato soup with bacon! I spread each slice with yellow mustard and sprinkled them with brown sugar and baked in the oven. Delicious! Not one bite was left!
Since the rain has ended we have been trying to redeem the side decks!
We straightened the upper deck so we could eat lunch outside on this glorious November day!
Since it was cool enough, I had a fire burning in the den and fixed four little pallets for four little people. The lights were turned off and Louis Dean and I sat on the couch visiting quietly while waiting for them to go to sleep. Harrison dropped right off and after a half hour Logan and Kailey were asleep.
There must have been a small pea under this little princess because it took her FOREVER! I thought she was never going to nap! Finally she went to sleep - wait for it! - JUST as two of the others were waking up!!!! I must tell you, this MeeMaw MISSED her nap!!!!
We were back outside as soon as they woke up - two by two!
Louis Dean is good at projects but relies on me to lead in the clean up.
I am bound and determined to get the decks somewhat back in shape before bringing my friend, Jutta, home with me next Wednesday!
By the way, she is loving Galveston and we spoke on the phone for the very first time!
I am loving being in the same time zone! We talk often through emails and have been doing that for years! So much so that when I meet her for the very first time, I am certain it will be be like seeing a dear friend again!
It is now safe to empty those sand bags that had been lined up in front of the kitchen French doors!
The quads supervised Granddad as he poured them all BACK into their sandbox!
Then they promptly took off their shoes and crawled in!!
Granddad held court in the gazebo! It was a busy place today!!
Slowly but surely we are making some progress!
We enjoyed fires both inside and out today!
The quads were gone by 7:30 and I am crying 'Uncle' and calling this a day!!!
