I can’t believe it two blogs in one day! Now thats not slacking huh?
I woke up on the fourth and it was raining not just your ordinary rain, pouring down!!! So I chicken out and did not go to the annual parade, even though my grand-daughter was the head Field Commander of the High School Band this year. Bad Grandma! She had to walk backwards for 2.5 miles and bless her heart she stepped into horse poop, you would have thought some one would have yelled step to the left Sarah!! See i should have went.
I stayed home and fixed the best cook out ever even though I had to cook it on the back porch. I had several of the neighbors over, my Mom and my oldest daughter and her family. I fixed steaks, hamburgers, hot dogs, & green beans and the neighbors bought pickled beets and eggs, marcaroni salad, fruit salad, potato salad & wate gate salad. We had lots of fresh fruit too with that delicious dip. My friends from Ky did not show, I don’t know if the rain changed their plans. We also celebrated my son-in-laws birthday too. Mom made him a cake. We all had a good time even though it rained. I had horse shoes, bean bag toss but we could not play because of the rain. Oh well another time maybe?
On Saturday, hubby wanted me to go check out some VW’s like the diesel Jetta!! Did I tell you how much I dislike small cars? It was ok, had plenty of power but I felt like I was sitting on the ground. Anyway it was a demo and the dealership did not know when they would get more in. Yeah!!! So, for now my caddy is safe!!
When I got back Mom and I went to the flea Market, looked and looked but didn’t find one thing I had to have. I could have bought new for what they had some of their stuff priced for.
Got up early this morning and weeded the big flower bed. Then went and cleaned the fish pond and hubby and I decided we needed another filter, so he says lets take the motorcyle!! I said OK , since I have not been on it for about five years. I said do you know where my helmet is? After about 1/2 hour he found it, so I had to clean it up but under the helmets liner all the foam had dry rotted and was falling out like sand. I said I don’t want to put that on my hair and he said being the man he is give it here I will fix it for you. Yes out came the duct tape, now how red neck is that? LOL Ok, helmet is fixed all I have to do now is throw my leg across this thing and hang on!!! Alright I am on and lock both thumbs in his jeans belt loops like that was a seat belt or something. Surprisely, I had a good time, I felt like I was 40 again heading out on another adventue with him… I thought since he was older we would not go as fast, WRONG, he will not tolerate anyone in front of him!! Coming home after our trip to the farm store we were heading down this hill and there were three cars ahead of us and the on coming lane was clear and I knew he was going to pass all three. Yup at 100 mph we passed them , how do I know we were going 100 because my helmet was being pulled way back off my head and it was at this point I looked at the dial and I was right. That use to be a thrll for me to go that fast but not anymore, so I locked the old thumbs a little tighter. Anyway I had a good time on it, don’t think I am ready for a trip yet???
Changed the filter on the fish pond and had the neighbors over to help eat the left over food from the fourth. It tasted as good as today as it did on the fourth.
Got Hayden around 5:30, had not seen him in three days, was so glad to see him and I think he missed us too. He spent the week-end with my youngest daughter, as she calls herself his Nana. He is such a joy ..
Ok, enough said, I’ve got to go iron an outfit for tomorrow. Back to the old grind stone. Hope you all have a great week.
