Opportunities to spend time with our adult children are moments to seize!
Yesterday Summer called me as she went from a doctor appointment to an errand.
She had pulled off the road and parked so we could visit.
I gladly sat down with my cup of coffee and it was just like we were in the same room together!
I'm not sure how long we talked....yes! I just checked my phone and it was 33 minutes. It went by like 10! There's just something about hearing the voice of your daughter. I could tell by the sound of it that she was in pain. By the end of our conversation, she sounded so much better! YES!!
It was rather spur of the moment but yesterday afternoon Amber wanted to know if I was up for pedicures and lunch today. YES!!!!
She has precious few hours available when the quads are at school so it was an honor she wanted to spend some of them with me.
We lunched at Pei Wei after our pedicures.
Such good food!! Such generous portions and we both ordered 'small' servings!
Leftovers went home with us!
There is no end to what I do NOT know about writing a book and using Word.
I apparently did some 'drive by clicking' as my son, Jesse, used to say.
Anyway I had done something that was screwing up the printing.
Amber quickly put it to rights and told me what to do if it ever happens again.
She IS a professional writer so I am confident she can fix all my mistakes,
After lunch she went her way - to pick up the quads from school - and I went mine - to run a few errands.
I barely had time to do a bit of housework before making dinner.
Louis Dean was getting hungry and there's nothing like onions, garlic and green bell peppers sizzling in butter to let you know dinner is cooking!!
I grilled steaks outside on our ceramic grill, thus making the neighborhood smell good too!
I bought Pretzel Bread Rolls at Central Market on Tuesday and we are loving them!!
I cooked some potatoes as I would if I were going to mash them - and then decided to add some of the onions, garlic, and peppers to them plus butter and milk and a handful of cheese. Of course, I salted and peppered them well. It was delicious!
We ate a good dinner together. We visited awhile and then we both decided we were really tired and it was time to go to bed. Louis Dean went in to take a hot soaking bath while I journal.
It's been a good day even though both of us are still hacking and coughing.
We go back to the ranch in the morning to do Critter Care while Dean does another Martial Arts Event. We are so glad we are able to help him with the animals so he can get away.
We will be back on Sunday afternoon......just in case I run out of data while we are down there. I have to use a hot spot since there's no Internet on the ranch.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and hope you enjoy Super Bowl Sunday!!
