More Packing and Sunday Lunch

Happy July 4th! (photo taken by Tony Ursino at the Big Timber rodeo in late June)

Yesterday afternoon my cellphone rang and the caller ID said it was “Chuck!”  I literally cried tears of joy when I heard his voice—it’s been a long, long seven weeks when at times we didn’t know if he would recover from his massive heart attack.  Friday Chuck was moved to a rehab unit in the same town in which they live—much better for Mom and less driving for the whole family! 

Nat and Barb came up for lunch—we enjoyed steaks, garlic mashed potatoes and green peas.  Dessert was ice cream—not homemade but still good!  It’s so good to have Nat visit for Sunday lunch again and we are so glad to have Barb doing the driving for him!

Lots more packing going on—we sanitized the water tank in the truck camper by filling it and adding a small amount of bleach.  The first time I ever sanitized a RV water tank I assumed “more bleach is better.”  Even after emptying the tank and refilling I swear my hair was several shades lighter from washing with the chlorine-y water!!  Didn’t make that mistake this time, just added a little, emptied the tank and refilled.

We don’t have any big July 4 plans this year, in years past we’ve had a gathering of friends and neighbors but this year I just wanted to “be.”  So, tomorrow it will just “be” the cowboy, Emmi and me.  We will be departing on our adventure soon—a few more sleeps as John and Brenda say!

  1. Happy Fourth Janna and Mike! We're going to "be" too. We went to dinner at the American Legion Friday night--so patriotic and appropriate for the weekend. Then a trip to the little historic town of Roseberry. Tomorrow we will chill.

  2. So very glad to hear the good news about Chuck:)

    Sometimes just "being" is what we need to do:) Enjoy your 4th!

    That last photo looks like a painting! So pretty:)

  3. It's difficult to chill when firecrackers are constantly going off around you

    1. That's the beauty of where we live in Montana Jan--our closest neighbor is 1/2 mile away and they are older than we--they occasionally have grandchildren visiting with the resulting fireworks but the most we hear is a faint, faint thud if that. We are truly blessed!

  4. So nice to have the freedom to enjoy the holiday in our own way - and different each year if we want :-) The Meadow Lark is so pretty. Wonderful news that Chuck is on the mend and closer to home now. Can't wait to see where your next adventure takes you.
