Getting A Slow Start

Our grandson, Radek, is one live wire.  We snapped picture after picture of him, but because he was always on the move we got nothing worth sharing - A blur here, back of the head there, hands in front of his face, or the top of his head.  Matt forwarded this picture to us that he had taken during Catia’s soccer game on Saturday so we thought we would post it so you could see what the little tike looks like.  Note that it was a slightly windy day and Grandma’s hair is a little bit out of place, however, it was a good picture all in all.

Grandma & Radek

We spent the day getting some of the housekeeping set up done.  There’s still more to do today then we can start working on the Ol’ Ta Do List.  With this warmer weather we need to get our outside work done by eleven, twelve at the very latest, and concentrate on the inside work during the afternoon.  We’ll just work on one or two items of the Ol’ Ta Do List each day until we get that monster under control.  When living in the south, you just move slow and easy. 

We were unable to snooker Norm and Linda, they knew we were back.  Norm suspected that we would roll right on by Montgomery and make the trip in one fell swoop, but they fed us a travel day meal none the less.  What a great smorgasbord of food! 

Norm figured that we had eaten plenty of northern food over the summer, therefore, we needed some nice southern home cooking.  So he prepared a slow boil dinner with sausage, shrimp, corn on the cob, potatoes, onions, peppers, and spices all blended together and cooked in one pot.  There was, also, some nice warm buttered bread to go along with the meal and a peach cobbler for dessert while the wine flowed and coffee rounded out the evening.  It was all so yummy – thanks, Norm and Linda, for a wonderful meal.  It’s soooooo nice to be around family.  What an enjoyable evening.  We look forward to spending time with them over the next few months.

Take Care Until Next Time  - - - - - - - -
