Saturday- stopped in to visit Papa & Mom. I was feeling so much better so today I could actually visit with him! I still had a little bit of a sore throat but it turns out the only thing that was ailing me was a summer cold! Zach spent the evening at North Central with friends and Jeff and I kept it low key at home. I did visit with dad for a little bit.
Sunday- Church, then Jeff and Zach went fishing. Once it turned dark Dad came over to watch Zach light off some small fireworks.
Monday- Beautiful 4th weatherwise! Nice relaxing day.
Tuesday-Back to work with a slight sunburn but all is good.
Wednesday- janeen called and wanted to go walking. I really didn’t want to walk in this heat but I figured I better get off my butt and put some miles on. In the evening I took over the pail of rhubarb slush I made last weekend. It’s very yummy and refreshing! Mom & Dad loved it too! We played 2 games of 35 and a game of Pass the Ace and as usual I didn’t win any of them.
Thursday- Zach and Jeff went fishing all day yesterday. I put chicken on the grill, baked some potatoes, put together a salad and cut up peaches for Peaches & Cream dessert. Right around dark Zach gets this idea to go fishing on the river. he has a feeling he will finally catch the elusive muskie if he fishes at dark. I was against the idea, but he’s been such an awesome helper lately I couldn’t say no. Next time I will! The mosquiyos about ate me alive! It was miserable. And to top it all off, he didn’t get a single strike on his line.
Friday- It was a short week because of the holiday but it sure felt like a long one. I spent my lunch break at Papa’s where he told me about his “twisted teeth” lol. After work I took Zach down to the lake to go fishing and Harlan Stout came along and offered to take him tubing behind the boat. He had a blast! We rounded off the evening by playing cards on the patio.
