On Tuesday...we had a treat when BS&K came to 'workout' for Phase 4...she brought along her dd and new granddaughter. Do you think my dd enjoyed the visit with this precious little bundle?
I KNOW she did...we loved hearing her goo, gaa, and babble when dd talked with her.
As many of you know, time off from work sometimes brings MORE work...and not any of the 'inside' type.
Hubs and DD got at it with the bushes....clippers in hand, electric hedge trimmer (which always scares me because I watched my Daddy have a VERY BAD DAY with one of those when I was about 10). Praise for no ACCIDENTS on this day...now we can see out the front windows without having to maneuver around overgrown branches.
Rarely do we have a 17yo available within ear-shot much less with a rake in her
hands...she's good at helping us when we ask her to pitch in and help with the 'fun'...and she doesn't complain while helping us with the really 'not-so-fun' stuff!
While I was in the house cleaning and re-arranging my kitchen countertops, putting away washed dishes and preparing clothes for dd's retreat, I popped a Freschetta bbq chicken pizza in the oven.
First thing on Saturday morning, I pulled down the bread machine and started an italian-herb loaf...yummy...with a little butter, of course! I wanted to have it with the 4th Celebration dinner...
We always love using our BIG GREEN EGG smoker for ANYTHING we're grilling. Today it was Thai-curry, marinated split-chicken breasts. Alongside was broccoli, baked potatoes, and Lima beans. Not that we had any room or anything, but there was home-made peach cobbler waiting patiently on the counter in the kitchen. (Beverly and BS&K just MADE me do it...thanks, ladies, it was WONDERFUL!!)
Praying EVERYONE had a great 4TH...fun with family and a blessed weekend!
