Our Day

Today was such a relaxing day. We have been having a huge storm here in the Pacific Northwest. You know, like the fence blowing over, garbage cans tumbling down the street, kind of a day. I actually love this kind of day. It seems like it is like a free pass day not to do your usual grocery shopping and all that stuff. My son Gage has been sick for about a week now. Him and I just rested most of the day. He has had a sore throat and now a stuffy  nose. Today he seemed to be feeling better enough to give me a smile, actually he gave me quite a few smiles today. That's a good sign. He is getting back to his old self.

My other son Wyatt said he had a good day at school, other than his short walk from the bus stop to our home he was totally soaked to the skin.

I found this picture on my camera--I am guessing a new Facebook profile picture maybe.

Chantel spends a lot of time playing games on Facebook and talking with her friends on the phone. That is multi-tasking for a 13 year old I guess.
I got a lot of sewing done today--much to my satisfaction. You'll see what I made in a upcoming post.

Then for dinner on a cold and stormy night I thought I would try a recipe for Top Ramen speghetti bake
that everybody loved. My husband had 2 big helpings. You can find the recipe here. It is from At Nann's table and it is really good!

I think Gage and I will have another lazy day tomorrow. Though he is doing better he is suppose to have physical therapy at the swimming pool tomorrow--and I just don't want him to get a chill..quite yet.  I hope the weather will be nice enough to walk with my Mom tomorrow, which I usually do everyday, but I'm not sure because they say we could have a dusting of snow in the morning. Crazy weather.

The dogs have been worried about all of the storm noises!

I am feeling all warm and content in our home with family all around.

Hope you all had a peaceful day too. Thanks for visiting!

So happy that Gage is feeling better. You have a lovely family. It must be wonderful to walk with your Mom! I'm sure she appreciates having you with her! The recipe looks delicious. I might try a smaller portion version of it since I cook for one!

Grandma Carolee said...

Yes, I love walking with you and missed doing so yesterday. My doctor appointment said my heart is fine..just PVC. I hope it only rains tomorrow, without wind, so we can walk with our OSU umbrellas. :-)
So glad that Gage is feeling his beautiful smiles.

Oh Sandy I am so honored and flattered that you put my recipe here on your blog!! You are such a sweetheart!! And I love your photos and that your husband ate two helpings. That is the best compliment. Please thank him for me. Tell him he is now a friend forever (big smile) and of course you have been for quite some time now:)

I do hope things go well for Wyatt. Bless his heart. What adorable children you have. You have a beautiful family Sandy. thanks again dear friend.

Big hugs,

oops I said Wyatt when I meant Gage. I can't even keep my own kids and grandkids names straight. So sorry about that! Give him a hug for me.

Hi Sandy, hope Gage feels better really soon. Your children are so cute and so are the doggies.

Hope the bad weather goes away. I don't like the wind blowing. Makes me nervous.

Have a great day,
