This and That
It seems like everything happens in the pattern of three...........
First, it was our son, he had surgery completed on his hand. Update, after one week, stitches were removed. Xrays taken, hand starting to adapt to all the metal inside. Doctor placed a permanent cast until we see the doctor again where he will remove a couple of pins.
Second, Bulldog Man injured in the head by tools falling from a shelf in a large home improvement store. Update, head still slightly sore. No more evidence of bruise and no longer with headache.
Third, yes.......third :-( . The darn computer decided it wanted to die. Update, Bulldog Man attempted to revive the computer. After trying everything, the computer was successfully used as target practice :-) We had no choice but to invest in a new computer.
I'm back, working on a new computer system. Please bare with me if the fonts and setup are different from the one I previously used.
News from the home front.........
It's been raining for the last several days continously, providing approximately 2 - 3 inches of water to our dried out grass and trees. The grass looks vibrant green now. Yes, when it stops raining we're going to have to cut the grass again. I won't complain, the property actually looks nice with the green grass compared to the burnt crap.
For the first time, this morning we actually slept in until 10:00 AM, this is truly not usual for us. I jumped out of bed, ran to the kitchen to put the crock pot on to start our country boneless beef ribs so they would be ready for this evening's dinner. Prepped the ribs with garlic salt, pepper, beef broth and beer. Left them in the crock pot until 5:45 PM. Cooked just right, the ribs were just falling apart. To compliment the ribs, we had corn on the cob and baked beans. Everything was delicious, sorry, no pictures of the meal.
I also made some more banana bread with the over-ripen bananas for the freezer, but it never made it to the freezer. Several pieces were cut for our late breakfast; only half of the loaf remains.
We, I mean I.....had been craving carmel covered apples with salted peanuts; no I'm not pregnant. I ran into town and purchased some carmel chips, salted peanuts, and apples, to make carmel apples to satisfy my craving.
