I forgot to mention when Eric was here I made corned beef and cabbage for the first time ever! The closest I ever got was opening a can of corned beef hash in our over 46 years together. I threw one in the slow cooker with potatoes, onions and cabbage for Eric to take home on Sunday. They had it for dinner yesterday and Eric texted that it was good! Even Mason (the picky eater) liked it! Good to know as I threw a 2nd one in on Sunday for Ken. He hasn't had it yet, but we'll see.
Yesterday was spent getting the kitchen back together and getting things hung back on the walls. Done! I painted a little shelf/table to match the red/white scheme. I'm liking the way it looks.

Ken spent time outside (it was a lovely day). He worked on unloading the last load of wood we got in the trailer so we could go get another. Slower doing it one handed, I offered to help but he did it himself. We had a salad lunch and then I went back to my thing and he did his..before we knew it 1600! WOW how that day flew.
We enjoyed Happy Hour next door with Jack (the Great Pyrnees) as Karen had decided to stay in Dixon, CA after their early start. After that we came home and soon after Jack followed. haha. He enjoyed Happy Hour he decided to find a way out and join us. (Bad Boy)...Ken bar b qued a couple of turkey burgers and a few hot links. Delicious dinner.

|I know Bill (on our way) won't be crazy about this, but good!|
Hot link with a cabbage bun..sauerkraut, onions..yum

Tuesday March 19th....We decided last night that we were heading to Reno this morning. I had a coupon at Total Wine for 20 percent off, so i did my ordering from home and it was ready to pick up when we got there. Then to Gardnerville and Walmart for some grocery shopping. Across the street to the nursery for the wood. Nearing 1300 so a visit to Carson Valley Inn (CVI) for linner.
|Good morning from Yerington, NV|
Karen was home, so we stopped to drop off the fries and bread for Jack as a treat she gives him. We had a nice short visit catching up and now we're home. Weather is changing, darn! It's been so nice the last few days but it's looking like some rain tomorrow. Hoping to get started on my kitchen curtains tomorrow.
|Our Happy Hour friend, Jack!|
We did hear from Dr. Cummings office today. Ken has to be at the surgery center at 1330 with surgery scheduled for 1415 on Monday. Poor guy, no food or drink after midnight! We were hoping for an early schedule. :(
Ken's brother Don and his wife Dana became grandparents one more time today! Our niece, Tara gave birth to a healthy little boy named Jason this morning. He was early, but weighed a nice 5.1 lbs. Both mom and baby are doing well we heard this afternoon. Congratulations to all!
Grandson, Adam sent a few pictures on Sunday. He was climbing at the quarry near Auburn, CA. I think he sends these just to make my heart stop haha. At least he had ropes and harness this time!
Have a great evening everyone!
