I got up about 7:00 a.m. this morning to the sound of the car doors of my daughter-in-law's vehicle being shut. She was packing her stuff back in her vehicle for the drive to see her family in Chicago. She got to our house last night about 6:00 p.m. and after driving for about 10 hours she was ready to just flop and that's just exactly what we let her do. She and her dog, Henley, were very glad to be here. We set her up in the basement for the night and let her rest for awhile and she called our son to tell him they had gotten here safely and then I got out the taco dip and she seemed to really enjoy it. She gave us a little input on our new computer system later in the evening and it was shortly after that we all hit the sack. Isn't that strange? Sounds like just a few minutes passed but it was actually 10:00 p.m. when we went to bed.
This morning I offered everyone breakfast but no one wanted any. My daughter-in-law never eats breakfast. Reminds me of myself a little when I was that age. I never ate breakfast either. I have to force myself to eat it now and that's just because doctors and other people say that you should!! She DID try my coffee creamer and said it really was good so I will put the recipe on my Recipe Page for you.
My hubby went out on the deck today and sat in the sun like a "groundhog". His words, not mine. He drank coffee and just sat and stared at the lake. It was so peaceful. I sat for awhile with him but couldn't sit long. I walked around the lake and went out into the herb garden to see if there were any more changes. I pushed away some old leaves and straw and there beneath it all were Astragalus sprouts and the Echinacea was pushing up too. The bronze fennel was up, along with tiny grassy looking onion chive sprouts. The parsley was very close to the ground but it was looking good along with a healthy looking batch of nettles. My goodness, I couldn't believe what was hidden beneath the mulch. I think I lost a couple purple sages but it looks like 2 of them survived. As my granddaughter says, "my, my, my", it was exhilarating!
We also planted peas today!! We had one little area that looked dry enough. It really wasn't but we planted anyway.
Folks it was just a wonderful day! I hope it's a nice tomorrow as it was today but the weatherman says mixed rain and snow showers. Have a great Sunday!!
