As usual, we went out to eat. We tried a new Italian Restaurant in Rolla I had seen in the rural electric paper. I think it would have been good if I hadn't ordered what was shown in the picture advertisement. Cheese Tortellini with Italian Sausage. I didn't like it. The plate looked appetizing and I'm sure it was good, just not a good flavor combination for me.
We then went to visit Mom at the nursing home. She was in a good mood just not breathing very well.
Dwayne cut sprouts and cleaned up the cedar fence row by the road. I went to Rolla and did some shopping. I hadn't been to that many stores by myself in quite some time. Had to find Cash a birthday present. He turns 2 on the 12th.
We spent the evening relaxing and watching TV.
As I was going to church, I hit a buzzard. Yuck, what a nasty mess!! I had blood and guts all over my windshield. I almost threw up. As I've gotten older, I have a weak stomach. I cleaned up the kids vomit, poop, etc. when I was younger and never got sick or even almost. Now, I gag and carry on looking at something gross or foul smelling. Does this come with age? I would have thought you would be more immune to these things.
Our new pastor is not an overly friendly person. As I was leaving church she asked me how I liked my job. I thought, oh, she does know who I am. It made me feel better about her. I would think a pastor would reach out on a weekly basis as you leave church and be more friendly. I felt like a little kid with some praise, it made me feel special. A kind word goes a long way.
I had to wash my car at the car wash. It was pretty gross with the guts stringing as I sprayed. It was all on my windshield a a little on the hood.
Stopped at G & W and then home to start supper. I try to have the kids over every other Sunday for supper. We had beef pot pie this time. April brought a cake for us to try. It was chocolate with a new icing of maple sugar with tiny bacon crumbs. It was actually good and you didn't taste the bacon. April said it was listed as a trial. I guess we'll see how many times people go back and buy.
Of course, we had a good time playing with Cash. I had to walk around outside with him and play ball. We pretty much spoil him.
After the kids left, we watched TV and went to bed early. I was so tired, you would have thought I cooked for a hundred rather than the six of us.
I am grateful for the visits with the kids.
