Yesterday I took Neal to our church's Mission's Conference luncheon. He enjoyed seeing some friends and listening to the missionary. Then we went to the doctor for his blood work (Pro-Time). We had to wait for an hour! But then we were 1 hour and 20 minutes early! We didn't want to drive all the way home and have to come back, so we figured they could fit us in. There was a steady stream of people waiting to see the
Last night Neal's parents and sister, Janet, came over for dinner. Actually they brought us dinner! They picked up some KFC chicken and brought homemade potato salad, baked beans and coleslaw. Janet picked up some cream puffs and iced them with chocolate frosting. We picked fresh strawberries out of our patch yesterday, so we topped the cream puffs off with half a strawberry. Wow! That was yummy!!!
Here's Neal's cream puff...
I tried to take a picture of Neal eating the cream puff, but he was being very difficult! Don't you see the mischievousness in his eyes!!!
Anyway, after a full day yesterday, Neal is wiped outtoday! For his exercise we did walk back into the woods to look at our raspberry patch. Earlier this year he transplanted our raspberries and put them along a fence at the edge of our woods. I don't think we'll get many raspberries this year, but they should be producing pretty good next year.
Here's another picture from the weekend. Beth bathed her cat on Saturday. If you know anything about her cat, Symon, you know that Neal refers to him as the demon cat. Symon does not like to be held, and he only wants to be rubbed in the morning...and that's only on his terms. i.e. he does the rubbing, not the humans. We took this picture because it's very unusual for Symon to willingly lay down next to anyone. Why was he doing it? He was COLD! He was still wet here and he was trying to warm up on Neal's blanket. It's really quite sad...
That's it for today. I think we're going to try to play a board game with the kids. We'll see if Neal's up for it!
