Tomorrow I have to go in for labs and a picc line dressing change. I'll have to be up and out of the house early, so Reece didn't stay overnight tonight, but came over around 6 and stayed until 10. He was sleepy by the time we got him home, but he was so sweet and good while he was here.
He wanted to bake, and I gave him the choice between the muffins we didn't make last week, or brownies. He chose brownies. He did most of it by himself, putting the mix into the batter bowl, and pouring in all the other ingredients. I cracked the egg on the side of the bowl for him, but he opened it up and let it slide into the bowl. He stirred for a bit, but brownie batter is pretty stiff, so I helped with that, and with pouring it into the pan. He did just fine tasting the batter all on his own. He loves "chockit." :o)
The brownies turned out yummy. We each had one and Reece took the rest of the pan home to share with his family while the brownies were still warm.
I loved spending the evening with him. We had pork chops, baked potato and green beans for dinner, watched some videos, played a game, drew on the white board and played with his cars. And baked. And I stole lots of hugs and kisses.
I felt pretty good today; good enough to clean up dog poop in the backyard while the puppies followed me around. I did that early this morning, before it got so hot. The puppies spent a lot of time in the pool this afternoon. I also cleaned the kitchen, did some laundry and made dinner. Feeling nearly normal. :o)
Please pray for my Aunt Pearl who died Monday evening in Oklahoma. She was 92 years old and raised a beautiful family of ten children. Her husband, my dad's older brother, died several years ago. Three of her sons died, two in vehicle accidents, one on a tractor that turned over. I don't believe her life was easy, but I remember her always smiling and cheerful.
Eternal rest grant her, O Lord, and let the Perpetual Light shine upon her. May she and all the faithful departed, through your mercy and grace, rest in peace. Amen
