I had an amazzing deep tissue massage for 1 hour & 45 minutes. Then had a great night out with dh downtown. It's a great weekend! Just getting ready to go to church now.

I'm trying out a new method for cleaning the oven. I usually use baking soda, but I hate having to contort myself to reach everywhere in the oven for lots of rubbing. It's basically: spray the walls and ceiling of the oven repeatedly with a baking soda in water. When all the crud has melted off, wipe out the oven.

I found it here: Eight Easy Steps to a Clean Oven

He has a blog that answers questions about this method: Natural Oven Cleaning With Baking Soda

I will report back how it goes.

Driving home from Mpls. What a pretty Fall day!

Steve's Meat Market, on the way home, is closed on Sunday.

That's good. He needs to see that you are doing okay!

Yes, that is so important for him.

As soon as we got to their house, I grabbed him with my good arm picked him up and gave him a big hug. We were good after that.

We acted like real grandparents. Took him shopping and bought him a toy that makes a lot of noise.

When my favourite uncle used to take me out he would buy me chocolate coated raisins...a nice BIG box! I got the nick name "the chocolate coated kid" for obvious reasons!

My daughter told us that when he woke up at 8:00 AM he wanted to know why Grampy couldn't come NOW. He was in no mood to wait.

Next time be there when he wakes up. And bring another loud toy with you. Start a tradition. He loves you, his parents want to kill you.
