Catching Up and Some Random Pictures

Unfortunately, I brought home a souvenir from SD – a nasty cold! It hit hard Thursday night and isn't letting up. I rallyed a bit yesterday, but it came slamming back this morning. Ugh. Not a happy camper right now. So, I'll just give you a short synopsis of the last few days and share some pictures with you.

Friday was a very lazy day. The only thing we did, well Randy did, was take Blackie to the groomer. He is now ready for summer.

I did get myself over to the laundry room Saturday morning. Even though I wasn't feeling well, I sure didn't want to put that off. It was our big laundry week, where I do sheets and towels in addition to the regular laundry. I got it over with and brought breakfast home from the clubhouse by 8:30 or so. Then, I flopped in the recliner. I was beat. But then . . .

Pam came over about noon to invite us to an impromptu neighborhood jam session and cookout. I wasn't really feelin' it, but I knew I would be sorry if I didn't attempt to play. So, I got myself together and Randy & I went next door. We played for over TWO AND A HALF hours – I couldn't believe it!

The time just flew by. Then the food was brought out and we enjoyed a meal together. I was so glad I pushed myself to go. It was a fun afternoon.

This morning I woke up feeling worse than I have since I got this cold. YUCK! My ear hurts, my throat hurts, and I just feel cruddy. Needless to say we didn't go to church.

As I write this, Randy is at a Baldwin Pops concert. I was so bummed that I didn't feel up to going. But, he was understanding, as usual. Thankfully, he's got one more concert before we leave, so I'll be able to attend that one.

Here are the random pictures promised. Enjoy! :)
