So yesterday I was in the middle of having my legs treated by the home health care nurse. She is a sweetheart. There is some pain involved in the process and she works hard to minimize it and yet do what is necessary.
Anyway, in the middle of all that, Youngest Son showed up. He had pictures on his phone of his family on vacation last week. They stayed in a cabin just south of the Minnesota Boundary Waters area. No wi-fi, no cell service, just them and nature.
While the nurse worked on my legs, David scrolled through the pictures on his phone, showing my grands swimming in the crystal clear lake, fishing, canoeing and enjoying the scenery from the deck of a pontoon. The dog particularly loved pontoon rides. I was having so much fun looking at the pictures that I didn't even notice when the nurse had finished her work. :)
David says he will transfer the pictures to a flash drive for me. I may show you some of the beautiful scenery then.
This evening, after a less than stellar day, Oldest Son showed up with a package of deli corned beef, my favorite lunch meat for sandwiches. When it is so very hot outdoors, I really dislike using the stove. The corned beef will get me through with cold suppers for a few days, assuring that my apartment stays cool.
And Duane also brought me a bag of my favorite fruit - cherries. It is amazing how something as simple as a bag of cherries can lift a person's spirits.
Doesn't matter how old sons become - they still look after their Mama. :)
