Sunday is Over and Monday is On The Way

It has been a good day. The two daughters-in-law, two grandsons, and I went to our favorite Mexican restaurant for a late lunch today. Everyone enjoyed the food, watching the boys manage their soft tacos (which they ate), and having a good time. After eating we came back to my house to talk and laugh some more. Our little expectant mother is beginning to bloom. She has that special glow that goes with pregnancy. We are all waiting to find out if we're having a boy or girl. That should happen on their next visit to the doctor. This week our middle son, Keith, will be taking the crib to the new nursery. The nursery is so pretty and is almost complete. New babies are so exciting.

Harry called me from the dock after the boys day on the water. Between the four fishermen they caught aprox 50 fish. The largest catch of the day was a 25 pound something-or-the-other ( the wind made hearing on the cell phone difficult). I do know that Harry said it was a good eating fish. Our oldest son, Joe, was the proud fisherman who caught it. I understand he was worn out after he landed it. I think all four of our men were dirty, smelly, and tired; but there was a lot of excitement in the air.

It seems the weekend has been an all around winner. However, I'll be glad to have our little group together next weekend. I'm already planning a menu.

I'm going to shut down the computer, make some tea, and read for a while then early (I hope) to bed. Kitty just told me to hurry up. She wants to knead and purr before going to sleepy town.

Hi Mary,
Sorry I've been quiet was a busy weekend and I didn't do much blog reading. It's almost 9 AM and time for me to get moving. Off the bench at Panera's, that is. I hope you have a great Monday!

Wow, that's a lot of fish. Who get to clean them? :-) Glad to hear you all enjoyed the day.

The guys were smart and had the deck hand clean the fish, package, and pack in ice for the trip home. I'd die if I had to clean those fish. I don't know how and am NOT about to learn at this advanced age. ;-)

Soul, I think all four of the men are sore from landing fish but you can bet they have grins on their faces.

Cheryl, You did have a busy time this past weekend. I'd be in the corner making funny noises if I tried to keep up with you. Can you spare me some energy?
