This week I believe has been busier then the last. The spawn of the pink eye, that we thought we had under control, reared its ugly head 😷 again Thursday morning. Another trip to the doctor with all toddlers in tow and a different eye drop prescription and hopefully we will get it all under control. I feel like I have washed sheets everyday! Oh wait CAUSE I HAVE! Not to mention that makes 4 school days that have been missed because of this nasty contagion.
I also had some internet issues this week that caused a delay in my Thursday launch of #momsterslink. Not only that but whatever was in the techno air also caused a tweak in my brain. I made several mistakes this week including typing a link to my Facebook page wrong in a thread, listing my hostess post for #momsterslink incorrectly, and calling a fellow blogger THE WRONG NAME! Sorry Clare@MudpieFridays She has a fabulous blog…please be sure to check it out if you haven’t already.
The weather has been wonderful but strange here lately. We had some rain followed with warm sunny 80*F days. The garden is still producing lots of tomatoes and a various assortment of peppers. The basil has attracted a swarm of bees that are pesky little f**kers buzzers but I just leave them alone as I know they are important for the environment. I am also allergic, so I truly must leave them alone. But because we still have an enormous amount of goodies coming out of the garden I have been trying to come up with stuff to eat using the garden fresh veggies in everything.
Also did you know that you can pick tomatoes from the vine while they are green, place them in a cardboard box, close the lid, and they will ripen! It really works! And they taste delicious!
My son had his homecoming dance last Saturday night. Him and his girlfriend Bessie looked adorable of course. I must say that I thought her dress was very tasteful compared to some of the dresses I saw strewn across various social medias that moms let their 15-year-old girls wear. Call me old-fashioned but at that age…any age really…sometimes it’s better to leave a little to the imagination.
The hubsters and I had a fab evening out to dinner with some friends from his work. We went to our local restaurant called “The Martin”. It has such a history there and I will surely be blogging about it someday. They serve everything basque style and it’s so delicious that I even love the cow tongue….yes you read that right…cow tongue.
I wrapped up the week with a “me” day in the city. I had my year-long ongoing adventure of a sleeve tattoo worked on. It’s so close to being done and I am loving how it is coming together. If you are ever in Reno, Nevada and looking to get some tattoo work done I highly recommend Archie at Battleborn Tattoo. He’s been the owner there now 11+ years and has done work on both my husband and myself.
I also got my hair touched-up so nothing new to picture with that. And to end the day I enjoyed some “all-you-can-eat” sushi from the Sushi Pier. I was entertained my a mother and daughter team sitting next to me who were enjoying sake bombs and trying to get our sushi chef to smile. They failed miserably. But I had a good laugh with them in their efforts.
I then came home to the children already in bed and I nestled into mine and watched the movie “Insidious 3” which I had started to watch the night before but fell asleep. I love scary movies and I must admit this one had me a bit spooked. Here’s the trailer if you dare….
Have a fabulous week my friends!
