This n That on a Thursday
It’s been a pretty busy 4 days since I last posted. I’m not sure that the next 4 days will much quieter.
We were feeling pretty lazy Sunday morning and were toying with the idea of making it a stay-at-home-in-our-PJs kind of day … but at the last minute, we decided to get dressed and get to church that morning. DSIL reported that DD was going to be heading back home within the hour and suggested that we spend the day with them. Because it was last-minute, we didn’t do anything fancy … grabbed some BBQ carryout for lunch, played some games, watched a movie … a pretty wonderful day.
Tuesday I had a doctor’s appointment, got my foot x-rayed (still waiting on results … suspecting a stress fracture), spent the afternoon watching the Ts while DD was in class, and watched T#1 break his swim team’s record for the 50 Fly (a record that’d been held for 25 years) at that evening’s swim meet.
Yesterday we had the Ts here for the day so their Mama could study for her exams. I surely thought there was a full moon yesterday because there was some grumbling and fussing at each other that morning … thankfully they were in better spirits after lunch.
We picked our first cucumber Monday … and our second yesterday. Too bad our tomatoes aren’t ripe … a cucumber salad would be mighty tasty.
And speaking of firsts, we had our first locally grown sweet corn yesterday … yum! I do believe that I could make a meal out of cucumber salad and sweet corn.
I haven’t had much time with my needle and thread the last couple of days, but I hope to be able to spend a nice chunk of time with them today … until it’s time to head to tonight’s swim meet. I’ll take my EPP project with me, although with T#2 swimming again, there isn’t much down time once the meet begins … but since we like to get to the meets early so we can get good seats (and so we can watch them warm up), there should be some stitching time before the meet starts.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
