Cobblers and a QUESTION...

it was another fun filled night.. everyone liked the wraps and salad. i maybe should have goggled how to wrap a wrap, but of course the cobblers said they were just fine.. not much for show and tell, i guess everyone's busy with end of the summer stuff! here are a couple pictures..
sister Jana got her quilt back from the quilter..

 Carol P brought yummy bars and
 Auntie Mary, one of her famous rhubarb pies..

Cousin Beth couldn't find thimbles while on her road trip so we all got mints!
Thank You Beth!!

Grandbabe update & Busy weekend

Surgery went well! Daughter Angie had told the anesthetist how sick he was after the last surgery and this time he was eating a subway sub by afternoon! He was still coming out of anesthesia, i was in there and asked if angie/mat needed anything and he mumbled a sub! We got little laugh outta that and knew he would be ok! Here he is opening a gift from great auntie Norma!

The boys/gals were home this weekend, when i got up Sat. Am there was a gone fishing note so i decided it was a good time to go to the farmers market and get pictures of auntie Mary..she sells t-shirts of the lake she and lots of others love and live on, of course she has bit of other things too..

Mary and her market neighbor Marge ( the bagel lady )
Mary had picked me up 6- jalapeƱo/chedder & 6- tomato/basil...yum!
As she always runs out!

So i then drove over to sister Janas cabin and waited around to see how the
fishing was going..

Grandbabe said he caught lots of fish but daddy let them go!

So he and i stayed and played awhile..

I think think thats about if for tonight,
The house is quiet and the fur babes are starting to come out from hiding :)

Enjoy your evening and stay cool!                  Jody

Up-date on surgery..

So after sitting and waiting almost 4 hrs wondering why he wasnt going in surgery, Angie text from the same day surgery area and said "no surgery today.. Tomorrow at 8am."
Apparently the bag that held the rod had a hole in it so the rod that was going in his arm was'd think they'd have others on hand..soo we went for PIZZA! Soo tomorrow will be surgery day, we hope!

And now i need to get busy!!
Enjoy the rest of your day!

this was last night once he got home..

Great Grandma Jean stopped by and brought him
