Do parents ever stop making care packages for the kids?

Trying to muster up the courage to bake something. I'm relearning to use my newly rebuilt right hand...in baby steps as I still have a cast of sorts on it. It's removable for bathing.

The last full cast and the metal rod/pin were removed on Thursday, the more user-friendly cast was applied and I had my first session of physical therapy yesterday morning.

After all that, I may be being over cautious as to how I do things, but I want to get back to being whole without any glitches. This repair was/is my only shot and I plan to "go by the book" for the recovery process.

What I REALLY want to do is make some bread but...dunno that might be thinking a little too adventuresome. Perhaps some cookies would be a better choice.

No bread, unless you use a bread machine and do absolutely no hand kneading. Definitely take it easy and by the book. Healing vibes being sent in your direction.

No, I wouldn't even think of kneading by hand. Actually I haven't done that since 1999 when I bought my bread machine. The machine has never really made bread. I use it strictly for kneading and for the first rise of my doughs. It's been a great tool to help with the awful arthritis in my hands, which is why I had the surgery in July...arthritis.

Gave up, for today at least, of making bread. Have my eyes on a pistachio Bundt cake instead.

Waking up from a nap. Need to get something to eat, Homemade Cream of Mushroom soup sounds good.

Just took a load of laundry off of the line and put the second one on. Need to decide on what's for dinner and get started soon.

The smell of clothes dried on the line is one of my fondest childhood memories!

I, too, just brought in a basket full of laundry that dried on the clothesline. I'm off by a day, but every Friday I wash and hang out our bed linens. I LOVE crawling into bed on Friday night after my shower. There's no perfume like that of line-dried sheets.

Cheryl, you have the loveliest little grandson in Tyler Thank you for sharing that photo

Did you guys do any fishing there...or was it just a nice stroll along the river?
Thank you, Kylie. No, I don't fish anymore, sure do miss it though. We just walked along the river, went to lunch, browsed through the antique shops, and stopped for ice cream on the way home.
