My MOST favorite Friday Favorite - my Summer Dee!!
Don't let that charming smile fool you!!
That sweet strong daughter of mine is struggling and I hope she won't mind me sharing this.
"Well, still struggling on so many levels. Scheduling for another round of injections, only problem is trying to verify COBRA - was advised this can take 45 days! Such a pain, pain to loose my job over this situation and then loose my insurance and trouble keeping short term disability going."
I seldom share the more personal things that involve family but Summer truly needs all the moral and prayer support we can give her right now.
I woke up this morning feeling much better!
It must have been a mild stomach bug that was bothering me but I am grateful it's gone now.
Summer had a doctor appointment in Grapevine so it worked out great for us to meet up for lunch!
Pie Five Pizza! My first visit!
Summer and I were able to spend a few hours together this afternoon.
That was certainly a blessing to me! As a mom, we always want to see our children in person - or as I say - with my own eyeballs! Even though it hurt to see her in so much pain, I needed to SEE her!
She soon had to go home and rest. She's not been out of the house in the last two MONTHS except for doctor visits and physical therapy. What a shame to lose your job AND your insurance while you are out on short term disability!
This afternoon I decided it was time to harvest a bit of this bumper crop of pecans we are having this year! In less than half an hour I picked up a heavy basket full of them! I plan to harvest every afternoon for awhile. It's important to stay ahead of the squirrels!
Another Friday Favorite is this delicious tea that was part of the birthday gift basket from my friend, Brenda, yesterday. I really milked my birthday for all it was worth this year!
While shopping for birthday books for a special 7 year old at Half Price Book Store this afternoon, I thought about my friend, Joyce, who loves Hal Borland and puts his quotes on Facebook. He is a favorite author of mine as well. I discovered he wrote a number of children's books but this store had not one of his books in stock. I came home and as I was cleaning the sewing room, I happened to look up on the bookshelves and spied my all time favorite book of his!!! Years ago I actually wore out some of his books from the library - I checked them out so often!
I intend to go to bed tonight and read a few chapters before sleeping. It is actually a book of personal essays......my FAVORITE kind of writing!!
It's been a week without wine due to my 'bug' so tonight I am celebrating good health again with a glass of Pinot Grigio......
and a grilled to perfection steak......baked potatoes done in our little toaster oven.....
and caramelized onions!
Oh, how I wish you could smell these delicious smells!!!
There's only two of us but I grilled three steaks!
Wish you were here for that extra one!!!
Cheers to Friday Night!!!
