Saturday morning Emilia debuted Jams Jams at the flea market. Lets just say it wasn't the right target market & leave it at that. She had fun & enjoyed her day with Amber & Julie.
|Here comes Daddy!|
Eriana & I went to watch Kendall in the Country Music 1/2 Marathon - we were so proud to see him running toward us! He even came over & gave us "5". He finished in the same time as last year but significantly further ahead in the placings & was pretty happy with it overall I think, especially given how warm it was. It still is unfathomable to me how fast he runs - and I just love to watch him!
|And he's gone!|
We worked in the garden a lot on Saturday. I am so fed up with my fat leg - I just put my sneakers on & off I went to the garden. With a hat & sunscreen of course. I paid for it later in the day but I didn't care. Did the same today - Kendall is finishing up the fence & the gate. I had a bunch of seeds to plant & some things to move around. The fence is nearly complete & then we can plant the last rose & the last hydrangea. The veggie beds are all full now, but as things "fail to thrive" we till them up & plant new stuff. EB & I took down & rebuilt our pea fence today too.
Saturday night the girls went with Christine to see Beauty & the Beast at school - so Kendall & I went to dinner. It was a nice peaceful night (for us!). Tonight we had our great friends, Ben & Mindy Isaacs & their kids over for dinner to celebrate Mindy's birthday. Kendall made his famous ribs & we all ate way too much & had a lot of fun. Emiila is back at it with her Julia Child concoctions - today she made the chocolate sponge cake with the chocolate icing & whipped cream for Mindy's birthday. Was pretty darn good! Eri entertained us with her dancing & singing of course.
So needless to say we're all tired tonight, ready for a good night's sleep & then another week starts! Get to knock out the first half of Round 3 of Chemo this week! Not looking forward to getting the Red Devil again but its a means to an end. The sooner I get it the sooner I don't have to get it anymore, right? Will certainly be feeling crappy on Wednesday afternoon & Thursday. My sweet neighbor Angie is teaching me to knit on Tuesday while I'm at chemo - looking forward to that.
I wanted to say I've gotten 3 very touching and meaningful emails this week. They are too deeply personal to me and to the senders to share - I had no idea I've impacted these 3 people the way they say I have, but I'm very very proud & humbled to have received notes like this. I want everybody to know how deeply my friends influence me every day as well - without the healing power of my family & my friends I'd be in a bad way - its a two way street for sure.
Have a wonderful week - will let you know how chemo goes.
