We’re resting after a busy week here at Sonnystone. My thigh returned to its normal size after two weeks of antibiotics and I’m feeling much better. That said, there is still some yuck left and I’m going to visit my NP next week and see if we need further treatment. This is a persistent bug I’ve been growing and I want it totally eradicated, never to return.
I may never go back to wearing pants… Unable to wear my usual uniform of shorts and shirts, I’ve bought several dresses and skirts that are so much more comfortable. I feel a little like I’m walking around in my nightgown in the dresses, but I’m getting used to it. Hell, I may burn my bras (again) and live in Total Comfort…
Casey, Michael, Olivia, Samantha, and I went out to Ellis Park on Friday. I don’t think I have been to the track more than once each year in the four years since I worked there. I was seriously burnt out after watching 300+ races per season x 5 seasons, but when I’m there I miss the days when Mom, Sister, or Cousins were likely to show up, too. Olivia picked a winner and won $4.60–excellent payout for a $2 show bet, but the horse was 31-1! I came home po’.
I’m officially into Prep Week for the Upcoming Camp Sonnystone… Cleaning and menu planning, mostly. Emma usually requests caprese using my garden’s basil and tomatoes under thick slices of fresh mozzarella drizzled with balsamic– which makes my mouth water thinking about it Not all of the kids share my zest for tomatoes, but I have convinced them that my tomatoes are nothing like the tomatoes they eat in restaurants. Everyone loves to pick the cherry tomatoes and pop them into their mouths right off the vine!
The best part of Camp Sonnystone is making the Sign with their handprintsand doing the annual height measurement. The girls are growing 4-6 inches a year, forcing JoJo to acknowledge the passing of time. The sign has to be engineered to fit Large hands now.
We Will be painting birdhouses and there Will be Music and Dancing and Games. Of course, we’ll have to go back to Ellis Park, too…and maybe New Harmony… Henderson is having their Bluegrass Fest the week-end the girls are here… And you know, they are just such nice company!!!
I’m trying to stay calm…
So we’ll pick the Jose’ fam up next Sunday around 10:30am our time…
6 more days..
