So yesterday I was able to have lunch with Kelly. This might not mean much to some but she was 600 miles away for 7 years. I got to see her once a year...twice if I was lucky. I think there was a year I didn't see her for all year. She's staying with her daddy which is about an hour or so away. He lives closer to the most likely town where she will find a job. He also lives in the country and she's not liking that a whole lot. *snicker* She grew up in the country but I guess living in the big city for 7 years spoiled her.
I'm just very happy she is home and I can have lunch with her.
Nikki will be 34 weeks Sunday. Her dr. said she could go part time but it would cut into her leave time for when Drex is born and she doesn't want to do that....can't say I blame her but she is pretty miserable. It has been super hot here in Arkansas and Nikki stays swelled up. I hate not being able to help.....
Can someone explain to me why they have a pregnant woman going 40 weeks? I'm not understanding it at all. We carry 9 months...right? So where did this 40 week come into play?
Speaking of it being hot (and humid...can't leave humid out.) in Arkansas, I heard on the radio this morning it was going to be 100 degrees Saturday. It's 97 today.
It's June 2....
What's August going to be like?
In 1980 we had a heat wave...it was like 2 months with no rain and the temps dropped....DROPPED to the high 90's after dark. That was a summer I will never forget. A girlfriend and I walked 2 miles to a lil country store for a coke in flip flops...melted flipflops by the time we got there. I called dad and
begged asked him to please pick us up.
We were 14 and thought we were smart...HA!
I keep thinking about tomatoes and my Aunt Mickey...every year around this time I do that.
I love love love fresh tomatoes, give me a salt shaker and a dash of vinegar (don't even have to have the vinegar) and I could sit and eat several straight from the garden.
Tomatoes make me think about a summer day I spent canning tomatoes and tomato juice with my Aunt Mickey and memaw. If your interested you can read about that here.
That was wrote 40 months ago....seems like a very long time when put that way.
Well I best get off here and go cook supper. Britt will be surprised! I haven't been cooking much lately. We're having chicken strips, cabbage (fresh from garden), baby lima beans, mac and cheeze and maybe cornbread.
