I was going to name this blog 'Freak Accident in Kankakee River ....Woman Loses Rearend' Tell you more about that later!
Today was an interesting day. I knew there was going to be an article in the paper about me, and I was excited, and nervous. Let me preface this by saying that Phil Potempa is a sweetheart. Such a nice guy to talk to. I thought he did a great job on the article, and it appears that I have a few new readers here to boot! Welcome!
I let the paper lay in the driveway until after 9am. I'm not sure why! I felt nervous. I finally looked at it, and I think they did a nice job. I'm not sure why my one arm looks so much larger than my other arm. Maybe the lens they used.
Other than that, it was a quiet day. I knew my sis was going to stop by around 1pm, so I felt a little stuck in doing anything. I didn't really want to get started doing something, only to have to stop it, so I putzed. Gosh I'm good at putzing.
Made this delicious Lemon Cream Pie today. If your gonna putz, do it right, and make a pie!
After sis and crew left around 4, I just felt so restless. I didn't really want to work around the house, I didn't want to sit down and plan Aaron's lessons.....argh...I just wanted out.
Glenco and I took a little ride down to the Kankakee River in the old little boat that he's been working out. It's a cute little runabout from 1956.
Here's me on the boat, playing around with the camera. The first thing I think when I see pic, is like, girl, you need some conditioner!
We rode on down to a little restaurant in Hebron called Marti's Place. I got a steak, Glenco got a Philly Sandwich. It's a pretty restaurant. They have a LOT of flowers. Here's a peek at the patio where we ate.
Here's our little boat docked at the restaurant. Looks so cute doesn't it? I pretended that we lived on an East Coast island, and that we had to take the boat everywhere. I imagined coming home with little paper sacks of groceries for our little island cottage. Life would be so charming there.
On the way home, it was about dark, and it was.....COLD. COLD. I shivered in the fetal position in the hull of the boat while Glenco captained us home. So dark it was hard to get the boat on the trailer. I froze my hiney OFF. It's gone. Poof. It's going to be quite uncomfortable sitting here blogging without a butt.
