Oh, I'm so happy fro antibiotics that I could write a poem. But I am not. :) They did their magic and I am 100% better. It was pretty tough for a couple of days though.
Charlie had a terrific birthday. He was so excited over his gifts that we were all laughing with him. Rachel made an awesome Ben 10 cake. It was her 4th cake and she really did an amazing job. But I'm her mom so I'm a little biased. Charlie also got pelted with silly string which broke out into a family silly string fight. Lots of fun.
Since the last time I blogged, we have had many "visitors" to the household. Lubber grasshoppers which cover the palm of a child's hand. Charlie still has them in his room. Praying mantis. Crickets. Chuck discovered a juvenile cottonmouth while weedeating. The snake got a couple of whacks on the head but made it out ok. Chuck was going to kill it because it's venomous and he doesn't want the kids or dogs to get bit. But after everyone freaked out over it (nature lovers) Chuck was able to put him in a bucket and we relocated the snake.
We now have a toad in my library. I wonder how long he will be a house guest.
It is also been 3 weeks of the mummification of the chicken project. Yes, Pharaoh Cluxor is still on my counter just mummifying away. I hope he/she has a great afterlife, may Osiris be merciful. LOL
I had planned on sharing some new recipes but I'm having a bad recipe streak. Everything has just been ok and probably not something I'd make again. So nothing worth sharing right now. :(
I plan on weighing in next Wednesday and checking out the damage. But for this week I need to hop on the treadmill. I had grand plans to go spinning but the Nature Challenge closing ceremonies are this Saturday and we still have numerous scrapbook pages to complete. So I guess we'll have to pick up spinning the following week. So busy!
Tuesday: made scrambled eggs and 1 piece of toast; lunch was pizza (on the road and it was cheap); dinner was spaghetti
Exercise: worked pretty good in the front landscaping pulling out weeds, ran around most of the day.
Reading: Don Quixote and Stiff
Stiff is a fascinating book about the off the wall uses for human bodies. It's a bizarre and fun read.
Don Quixote is about a man who goes insane reading the genre of his day, chivalry books, and goes off on his own adventures as a knight errant. Has several very funny parts.
