So, where have I been?

This is the longest I've gone without posting for ages, and I've been right here at home with no real excuse not to make an entry.  I have a lovely granddaughter visiting, and my other grandchildren are around a lot:  so there's every opportunity for pictures.  After all, I only see Lyndsay once a year.

But I've been busy wilting.

Remember, we only have air conditioning in our bedroom (our own choice... I'm not looking for sympathy).  Yesterday our thermometer registered 100 degrees ouside.  And, since my son is visiting, I've been cooking and baking a lot.  Take a 100-degree day and turn on an oven and a couple of burners inside, and what do you get?  Wilted Mosie!  And, with all that cooking, I've washed a ton of dishes (no dishwasher, either).  So my knee has been giving me fits, from standing at the sink for hours.

Today we'll have relatives here for a barbecue; my son-in-law, Kevin, will be the chef; the potato salad is already made.  The forecast is for a cooler day, and it's raining outside as I type this.  We desperately need the rain, so I'm thankful for this change in weather.  I feel better already.

Oh WOW - a cookout at Mosie's!!!!!  I know the food's gotta be good.  Lemme see, got an overnight back, check, got a nightie, check, got a plane ticket - nope.  Oh well, I'll be there in spirit.

Have a great day my dear friend.  Say Hi to the family for me.

Wish I was there.

Sounds like a great 4th of July you will be having Mo. Have a special day with your wonderful family.

Another difference?  Today there'll be lots of help with dishes.  There will be too many kids there for you to stand at the sink.  And Kevin will run the grill...another bonus!

Wow, you have been busy and taken care of family and cooking so no wonder we don't have a Mosie.  We will see more of you when everyone is gone.  I truly hope the front is cooling you down by now?  I think we've got one coming thru TN tonight so hopefully it's already come by you.
Take care and Happy 4th.
Sonya
