Long Good Day

My day started at five am this morning. Rick and I did a local tv show, Coffee Time and it airs at seven thirty so we had to be at the studio at a quarter til seven for sound check.
It is difficult to sing that early in the morning! But we love doing the show, and we were able to discuss some problems with some of the tornado recovery work and hopefully the awareness will bring us some help.

This afternoon, my family came over, including nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.
We had a backyard full of little kids on a slippery slide! There were hot dogs, and watermelon and home made ice cream and all the trimmings, including sweet tea and lemonade. At some point the little kids wanted to play ball, we had a plastic bat and ball, so I told them I would play too.
All was well, until my great nephew Jared got up to bat, Jared is a slinger of bats.........he hit and
I caught the ball, and then the bat caught me, across the top of my left hand. At first there was a huge big black knot, and lots of throbbing, after a long sit with the ice pack, the knot is gone, but the top of my hand is one big bruise. Moral of this story........should not be playing ball with six and seven year old All Stars.

Needless to say, I am tired, in pain and yes, I would say I am just a little bit of a whiny baby right now. But it has been a great day! lots of fun, and all the kids wanting to know when they can come back. Oh yeah, as the day was winding down, and we were all on the back deck eating ice cream and watermelon.......three deer came down to the apple trees to eat. The kids were beside themselves. It really has been a great day.
Good night, Sweet dreams.


  1. Ouch! I don't blame you for whining. It is nice the kids had such a great time.

  2. Sorry your day ended up not so good, but it sure sounded like everyone had a wonderful time. Next time wear a ball glove!!
