Trouble sleeping last night so my day actually started at about 2am. I stayed in bed until just after 4am but I just couldn’t take it anymore and got up. I didn’t care, I get up, make my coffee and get to work on blog things. It was What I Ate Wednesday so there were lots of posts to read.
I finish on the computer, get myself dressed and ready to go for my walk at 6:45. I walk out the back door and…it’s raining. How did I not notice that before? So I came back inside and read for a half hour. Out the door again at 7:15. No rain this time and I’m off for my walk. I do my 2 miles and since my sister Ele just lives around the corner, I decided to walk over and see her and our friend Jim who is visiting from Washington, DC. We already had plans for a late lunch but they said they’d be going to Target.
Came home and got myself showered and dressed again. I wanted to go to Target because they had Morningstar Farms veggie burgers on sale for $3.29. I was excited. But when I got there I saw that they also had the spicy black bean burgers in an 8 pack for $5.99. Excellent deal! I bought 2 of the 8 packs and 5 of the 4 packs. I had a $25 gift card which I used. I was pretty excited!
Jim bought Ele a little gift…
Just what every girl needs…Lawn Flamingos! It’s an old family joke which I’ll explain some time.
Ele and Me dressed in our patriotic best. I won’t tell you how many shots it took to get this right!
Ele made yummy quesadillas for lunch…
With salad on the side, of course!
Dessert was delicious and simple…
Strawberries, blueberries and yummy banana bread. Ele was kind enough to save a serving out for me before she put sugar on the fruit for everyone else! Thank you, Ele!
The Boys…Ralph and Jim…this also took several takes to get the photo right. The reason is that these two are incorrigible!!
It was a fun peaceful day. Jim will be here until Sunday, so there will definitely be more fun coming up. Little Michael will be back for a visit again tomorrow and that’s always fun.
Hope you all had a great Fourth of July…our Nation’s Birthday!
