My son and dil from Wisconsin came to visit on Thursday evening and stayed until Sunday. My son here in Iowa came each day and his wife was not feeling well so only came one evening.
Lots of good food, most of it healthy, some indulgent (lemon bars!). Lots of good conversation, good natured kidding and all the things families do.
Additionally, my sons completed my bathroom remodel which Iowa son had worked on for a couple of weekends. Now, I have a new tub and shower surround to replace the 1960s harvest gold ones that came with the house. The walls have been painted navy blue and the ceiling fan updated.
While the men of the family were working in the bathroom, dil and I spent 15 (7 1/2 hours each) in 90 plus degree weather, painting the patio. Talk about cardio!
My son also picked pears and I canned 20 pints of them today!
Now, Daisy dog and I are going camping!
Have a great week, Sparkies! Hugs!
