I have plans with my girlfriends this afternoon and just between you me, I need this time out. Socially, I'm beginning to feel starved. How did those pioneer women do it? They were left out on the prairie alone for months and months. I, by nature, am not a loner like my Hubby yet I don't need people all the time either . . . but I do miss having those relationships where you get together, talk and giggle about dumb stuff, don't you? I suppose if I had to be alone all the time I would find a way to cope but since I don't - I won't!!! We girls have decided we'll probably eat dinner out so I fixed a big pot of pinto beans and ham for Hubby and will make a pan of cornbread right before I leave. I told him if he wanted onions he knew where they were. Our garden has tons of onions in it right now. The lettuce is also big enough to eat too, along with the arugula. The spinach still needs some growth but if I were desperate I could cut a few leaves. I'll need to cut the Swiss Chard this week also. A couple pieces of fried ham, some stir-fried Swiss Chard and onions and a piece of cornbread would definitely knock my socks off, but then again, I'm not hard to please.
I got back home about 9:00 p.m. It was so good to get out with some friends. We laughed like kids and I'm glad I had the time to spend with them. We also decided to eat Mexican food. Needless to say we cleaned the salsa a chips right up!!! It's nice to come home though. Being gone for a little while makes me appreciate coming home even more.
Have a nice evening!
