Hope all who celebrated had a good Easter! We went to Middle Son’s and daughter in law’s. My DIL is an excellent cook, and she smoked a pork loin. I’m generally not a port eater, but this was good. I ate a slice and a half, which for me, is impressive Youngest son loved it, and was quizzing DIL on her recipe and methods. I see a smoker in his future, LOL.
Middle Son and DIL had an egg hunt for Turbo too. It was so cute. He loved it. DIL’s mom had filled a bunch of plastic eggs with toys, chocolate and money for him. I thought it was really sweet.
And we all got to play with Jett and Hazel. I didn’t think to take pictures (my phone usually stays in my purse), but they are super nice dogs. Jett, however, doesn’t know he’s huge, and can bowl people over with affection, so we have to watch him around Turbo. Poor Jett is confused by us holding him back when his smaller, gentler sister plays with Turbo. But then he plopped down and watched like a good boy.
It was a fun and relaxing family day, and Youngest got a box of homemade cookies out of it I made two kinds of non dairy cookies and took them all just to get them out of my house. I really wanted to test the non-dairy white chocolate macadamia nut recipe. Especially since it was vegan and getting those to turn out can be a little tricky. I got a positive response from everyone which was nice.
Otherwise, Maggie and I took two walks on Saturday, and the second one involved climbing huge stairs in to the side of hill (it’s part of a trail). I haven’t tried going up those since my neck surgery. I was too afraid of falling because some of the risers are so large. But we did it on Saturday. Only problem was once we went up, we had to go back down. Maggie was fine because she’s part goat. But I’m just a two-legged human with cranky knees. I handled the normal spaced steps, the but big ones had my knees yelping as I tried to step down. I had to tell Maggie to wait at each step. That part was slow progress, and I had to look ridiculous, but we made it! I call that a win.
This week is going to be busy with appointments, we’re babysitting Turbo Thursday (I think) , and I need to do a cake for this Saturday so I need to run around getting stuff I need for that.
How was your weekend?
