to say hi and hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I have been so sporadic lately. It has been so busy here. I worked all but one day last week and then was able to take Hermit Crab up to the lake to visit my husband's parents. His line was only down for the 4th of July and couldn't get anyone to cover his spot so he couldn't go and Drama Queen has Tofu to take care and he doesn't ride very well. I wasn't going to spend 3 hours in the car with a meowing cat, so just the two of us went up. Very nice and relaxing-except for the neighbors who shot off fireworks until all hours of the morning, then the phone rang and the SIL's dogs were barking. Not much sleep was had by myself or my daughter. Today Hermit Crab had her wisdom teeth pulled, so I am on my way to town to get her some movies, deposit her paycheck and pick up her pain medication. I might need to nap myself this afternoon! I have more overtime this week-to pay for all the equipment and 'natural fiber' clothes we had to buy for her college orientation-a 5 day camping trip to introduce students to one another before classes start so they will know some people on the first day. Great. And then we had to pay for her surgery up front. Holy cow-have you had wisdom teeth pulled lately? $2000 for about 90 minutes at the office, and only 20 minutes of that was actual extraction-the other time was sedating her, waking her up, giving her ice packs and replacing her gauze packs. I think there will be more overtime in the next few weeks I will need to pick up. We'll be living on spaghetti and mac and cheese for the next couple of weeks!
I hope everyone is having a good summer and when time permits I'll be back with some more recipes. I had two great ones from the weekend at the lake, but didn't have my camera (what?!) at the lake with me (total relaxation and someone else cooked) and my phone has issues transferring pictures, so I will need to make these dishes again and post.
