And the rain subsided...

Yesterday was lovely and I got two bags of mulch down on the west side of the house. Yay! Progress. The lettuce is exploding, sucking up rain and growing tall and lush. Found enough spinach for the meal I had planned. Currently fascinated with spaghetti squash and finding mixtures to fill it. Chicken Alfredo with spinach yesterday, yummy.

Seems like everyone of my daughters is in crisis. Stress is rife in get togethers. Two of them could be lumped together under the head of "relationships", another has serious concerns that she might lose her long term, well paying position in a corporate shakeup and one has health issues. I do listen well, and know this is temporary, but it's tiring.

Anah got her braces on and suffered loudly for the first couple of days. I know it hurts and I feel for her. Made chicken noodle soup for, easy to slurp down. She seems to be feeling better today.

And the rain is back today along with chilly temps. Will be getting out later for Wednesday lunch. Good food and good company lie ahead.

I repaired a necklace and made another, fun to get my hands back into creating something.

Poor kid. I feel for her. Hopefully it will be worthy all the pain and bother.

Wish we were closer. I'd take some of that spaghetti squash off your hands! :D

She was pretty pitiful the first few days, ah what price beauty, eh?

No doubt if you were closer I'd be sharing all kinds of veggies cause we always plant more than we can use,

That was us in our hey day. People would run in fear of us giving them more squash or tomatoes. :D

Dear E,

Greatly relieved to know that you were not in the path of the tornados or flooding reported in your part of the country during the past week.

Hi L,

I have not washed away but do feel slightly moldy.

Sometimes all the kids seem to need is a loving ear to listen, and for us to not try to fix and esp not to judge. That your kids feel safe to come to you says alot about your relationships -
IMHO. With WT and my adopted son J-man, getting it out of their heads helps them form it than leaving it to continue to loop in the brain. I listen to WT about the smallest things bc I want her to come to me w. the big things, and that seems to work. I barely survived her teenage years but mid 20's we finally could have a good relationship.

Braces are painful but good after the fact when the bite and teeth are where they should be. I hope Anah is already adjusting and having less soreness.

TMI, but learned this when my daughter had braces. Eating more soft foods esp after you've gone from eating a lot of roughage can mean constipation. WT was backed up about a week before she mentioned she couldn't go to the bathroom. She had a checkup w. her pediatrician that same day and he rx'd a laxative but that made her unfortunately keep going for 2 days and miss school bc she had to be close to a bathroom.

Thanks for the great info on braces. Anah is adjusting well, was a little grumpy yesterday because we grilled steaks and she couldn't chew well.
