We enjoyed our lunch and then it was time to say goodbye. Got a nice 3 CD of old country music. Thank you Bryan and Cheryl. Russell got me a nice flower basket that we hope lives and Eric gave me a triangle dinner ringer like the ranches have to call people to eat and a Lodge sandwich cooker..which we'll be trying out soon! Nice to have seen all 3 of our sons this weekend.
We headed up highway 80 and Ken brought up going around Lake Tahoe. It takes a little longer but the day was done anyway. What a beautiful drive, the lake is fuller than we've seen it in years. Just awesome!

Yesterday (Tuesday) was a stay at home day for me. Ken got the Dodge off the cement and took it to town for a little drive. I finally started on my new kitchen curtains, which I've been meaning to do for years.

This morning, (Wednesday) after some wild dreaming all night I awoke at 0530!! Oh Oh late..got the coffee going and we did our visiting with our blogging friends. Ken had an appointment to see the surgeon he saw a year and a half ago. Dr. Fry comes to Yerington once a week so we were there for a 1215 appointment. Ken's been dealing with a bad shoulder for about the last year and half or more and Dr. Fry said when he's ready to come see him and he'll do a shoulder replacement. Ken's ready! He's been taking motrin for a long time, but it's not doing the job anymore. We're waiting for the new surgeon to call for an appointment as Dr. Fry doesn't do the actual surgery anymore. I'm thinking sooner rather than later he'll have a new shoulder. He was trying to wait until winter to have it done, but his body isn't cooperating..

After the appointment we headed for Pioneer Crossing and their one trip salad bar. yummy..It's only $2.95 a person and it's a great deal. We haven't been there in ages. We got home to a pour down of hail, rain and wind. We sat in the car for a bit and watched, and when the opportunity arose we headed for the house. We were greeted by a ton of water in the hallway. Because of the rain and wind our roof over the addition started leaking. Whoever tied the house and addition together definitely didn't do it right! We spent quite awhile cleaning up the flood and know there's another job for Ken to try and figure out over the summer depending on his shoulder.
I spent some time in the kitchen figuring out what to take for the weekend. We're leaving tomorrow and heading for Washoe Lake State Park. Ken has his yearly eye appointment in Reno Friday morning. Sunday morning I'll leave for Fair Oaks and our neice Chelsea's baby shower. I've got a room in Auburn, CA for the night and Ken will come home. I'll head home Monday morning sometime.
These weeks just fly too quickly! Enjoy your evening. We've got a fire going as it's cold! Our neighbors invited us over for a campfire outside..no thanks, they're much tougher than we are but we appreciate the invite!!
