Quiet Time

I am enjoying some quiet time this evening catching up with reading blogs. I get to enjoy whatever I want to do this evening instead of putting someone elses wishes first.
It is unusal to be waited on for a change and believe me I sometimes like to be pamper a little. Don't we all? We have had such a roller coaster for the weather. I am still fighting the sinus infection so it is good to just rest.
I hope the weather man is right and we are going to get to 65 this weekend. It will be the first weekend that I am going to spend some time outside. I have a sneaking suspicion that I am going to get a sunburn. I will need to get me a hat to wear. I think I will get a straw one that I have seen. They are cute. I can also use it when I go watch my oldest grandson ride his horse this summer.
I would so love to get away for a few days right now even though it is not possible. We will know more after all of the doctor visits that are scheduled. I got to spend some time at the antique mall changing things around and looking at the other booths. My son was spending time with his dad so i had "ME" time which I dearly loved. I don't get to much of that at times, but our son that is home with us now does help me. I am just thankful to know he is here if I need him.
He fixed supper for us last night. He cooked potatoes, carrots, turnips, cabbage, onion and polish susage all together real slow. He calls it a one pot meal and we had hot bisquits to go with it. It was good. He does like to cook. He like  to use spices that I wouldn't have thought about using. I know if he makes chilli. He lets us take ours first and then he adds more spices because he likes the hot spicy food.
Well I am headed back to visit some more of my friends. Take care and have a great week.

Hi Shirley - how wonderful that you had a special day where you were treated like a "queen"! Some time to ourselves is such a rare thing isn't it! We do for so many people - but we rarely take time for ourselves~~

Your grandchildren are beautiful~

How nice to have someone cook for YOU for a change! It sounded delicious, too.
I hope you feel better soon. I just told Blondie to get some pineapple juice. It has Bromelain and vitamin C & it really helps. My Mom was a firm believer in its healing properties.
