Daughter and Grandson that live in Greenville called and said she would bring down some Maid Rites, this is a loose meat sandwich which is very good. So again, we had more or less fast food, with chips and dip for supper/dinner. We all set around and visited, another daughter from here in town dropped over for a little while.
Then on Thursday daughter and son-in-law from Centerville brought Sam’s doughnuts for breakfast. I had all ready had breakfast and was grocery shopping. I cooked a pan of vegetable soup for lunch. After lunch they went home to pick up Grandson from school and then they all came back for a spaghetti supper. Nothing fancy, spaghetti, garlic toast, chunky sauce, fried up some hamburger and mushrooms for people wanting meat on their sauce, made some apple salad.
On Friday after breakfast, I did up the dishes, believe me we went through a lot of paper plates while our son was here, then our daughter that lives here in town and I went to the Heart Hospital for Mom’s procedure. I told Abe and Chris they were on their own for lunch, so they drove to Arcanum to Millers Tavern and had a roast beef sandwich, fries and a beer. Chris couldn’t get over the fact the sandwich was huge and only $2.50.
Mom’s procedure went well, doctor told her that her heart is good for another 86 years. She’ll follow up with her heart doctor on May 26th. Daughter and I, and two other daughters plus both brothers and a niece were all there for Mom’s procedure. We ate lunch in the hospital dining room. Wasn’t too bad, I had a fish sandwich and a bowl of fresh fruit.
Came home, was a little tired, so I ordered pizza, again, with chips, and left over apple salad and we also had Maid Rites left over if anyone wanted to warm one in the microwave.
On Saturday morning, Angela brought breakfast I think from Panera Bread, we had Muffin tops, a coffee cake ring, and some quiche. It was all delicious. Audrey slept late, I think from all the playing her and Noah did on Friday wore them both out.
I had made some pickled eggs and beets on Tuesday. Made Shoe Peg Corn Salad on Friday evening. Made potato salad Saturday morning, and of course chips and dip again, plus we grilled out hot dogs and hamburgers for lunch on Saturday. Melissa made her delicious chocolate cake, Angela brought one from Taste of Elegance, a marble cake decorated with Happy Birthday Chris, this year his birthday fell on Mother’s day and since Sat. was the best time to get together, we had it then instead of Sunday. After the daughter, son-in-law and grandson left, son-in-law had to be at work by 7pm and the other two daughters, granddaughter and son took off to run to the store, I mowed the front yard real quick.
Notice the theme of the vist? Food! LOL Well lets face it, we all like to eat.
Sunday morning we had a nice breakfast of Bob Evans sausage, pickled eggs, toasted bagels, toast and oranges cut into half slices. Then a friend stopped by to see Chris and they took off right as I was putting dinner on the table. He got back around two so I warmed him some dinner in the microwave, rinsed the plate and we took off for the airport. Dropped him off, wished him a Happy Birthday again, and he wished me a Happy Mother’s Day and we left him there and drove on over to see my Mother for a little while, got home around 7pm.
On Monday I mowed the backyard, helped Abe plant some rhubarb and a couple of small Pawpaw trees, sucked up a lot of maple seeds that are dropping from our neighbor’s tree, went to the grocery store, Prescription shop and post office.
Today I worked on the laundry and raked up some small limbs that have been falling from our oak tree all winter, picked up a bag of ice and got gas for the car. I thought it would drop by Tuesday like it usually does, but instead on Monday they raised the price to $2.35 a gallon, on Sunday it was $2.27.
Now I am trying to get caught up on reading some of my favorite blogs. Hope all of you Mother’s out there had a great Mother’s Day.
