We've been out of town since Friday and I had little time for the computer so I'm just now catching up on the forum news.
We spent the weekend at our daughter's and had a great time with the grand daughters. On Saturday we took the twins to visit a friend's farm where they have 15 miniatures horses, chickens, sheep, dogs, cats, and a koi pond.
Sunday Erin and I and the girls' other grandmother took them on a steam train ride that goes close to their house. All summer they have been waving to "Thomas" (the train!) from their house. Sunday they got to wave at my husband Mike and their dad Josh as they caught up with us at several spots along the route. The twins squealed with delight every time they "surprised" us along the way! What fun to see things through a child's eyes.
Monday morning we headed to Seattle for my 4 week post op thigh lift check up. The surgeon thinks things are going quite well and doesn't want to see me for 6 weeks. He did put me on a low grade antibiotic as there are a few red areas close to the incisions. Fine with me as I sure don't want an infection.
I brought home wild blackberries and made jelly when I got home. We also brought plums, apples, and pears from Erin's. I'm going to try dehydratins most of what I brought home. I'll also slice apples for the freezer to make apple crisp this winter.
Our weather is absolutely beautiful. Today it only got up to about 75 but it was sunny and calm. I could take months of weather just like this.
Sending positive thoughts to all of you and especially to those of you facing challenges.
