Yesterday was a good day for all of us, here in San Diego; my back was feeling much better and the weather was excellent. We didn't have anywhere special to go, and we were able to get most of our chores done, play with the girls and even have time to fix a nice dinner. Grandma (Linda) had gotten home late last night and this morning the girls were both up early, and in the room to wake Grandma and Grandpa. My back was feeling much better and we were all at home again. On top of that, Karen Ryan was visiting, as she helped Linda drive back down from Livermore.
Yesterday evening was a special treat, as Karen wanted to fix dinner for us. She prepared REAL chicken nuggets. Ones she prepared, rather than the ones you can pick up in the frozen isle of any grocery store. The ones she made, along with a great salad and vegetable side dish, were great. Not surprising was the fact that there were none left at the end of the meal... ;-)
We stayed up a little bit, after the girls went to bed and talked about all sorts of stuff, but mostly about what was going on back home. It was good to have Karen with us, even if it was only for this weekend. It felt a little like we were back in Livermore, and she even brought some wine from a couple of the local vintners. As you might guess, both bottles are now gone, and shortly there after, we were in bed.
Today began with us getting up early again, only not as early this time. I went over to the gym to get a little aerobic work in and then back over to the house. Linda was making French Toast for breakfast, and I always like it when she makes French Toast. After breakfast the girls and I went to church and enjoyed the fellowship, along with Sunday School (the girls always talk about how much fun Sunday School is). The only down side was that after church we came home to get ready to take Karen to the airport. She had an early afternoon flight, and from the way it looked, just about everybody else did too.
The evening was very nice and relaxed. After dinner Grandma sat down with the girls (actually Grandpa sat down with them, too) and watched Matilda, the Disney movie from 20 years ago. It was still fun for them and a nice break for us. The girls got to bed at about 20:30 (8:30pm) and my guess is we won't be up too late either. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
