Rain, rain go away

May 1st, 2017 at 12:56 pm

Yesterday my DIL was invited to a beads & bubbles party (bead craft with champagne on the side). She thought it sounded like something fun to do on a rainy day. My son, however, had to study. So I went over and watched the boys for a few hours.

I made them mac & cheese for dinner and tried prying them away from their video games/you tube with no success. (When dad finished his work, he said "No more screen time!" and they complied. I lack authority.)

It was still raining when I walked home (very short walk) and I got soaked, and had to walk through several puddles because there was no dry spot to put my foot down! This morning I hear there is widespread flooding in the area, and I believe it! It's still raining.

I have to cancel our planned hibachi dinner on Wednesday because my son will be traveling for work. We'll reschedule after I get back from my girlfriends' getaway.

Today is pizza day at Planet Fitness, so I won't go until around 5:30. Until then I will stick close to home and get things done (or not! -- retirement is great!)

One thing I got done yesterday was making a bunch of sausage biscuits for the freezer. They will be handy to have for those times I need a quick breakfast.

Today's menu: Breakfast - scrambled eggs w/red pepper & onion, clementines. Lunch - tuna salad sandwich, peas, strawberries. Dinner - pizza.

I missed "Call the Midwife" last night, so I'll watch that today. I may also watch "In the Line of Fire." I remember thinking it was a good movie years ago when I saw it in the theater.

I started a new 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle, and I have the edges done and a little bit of the interior.

Such is my life now. Isn't it great?

    It does sound great! I have another 6 years or so until I can retire from full time work. I look forward to my days being my own!
