BreAnne had a 28-week OB appointment today and I got to play with the kiddos! Josiah woke up after she had left, and he jumped right into the fray.
Poor, Gideon is under the weather. He's a trooper.
These 3 and I attempted to put a floor puzzle together. I'm sure we would have done it if Bre hadn't come home when she did.
I ran home and touched base. Stacia and Allie were both busy with their respective course work. I made Dad lunch, Michael mowed the lawn, Dad went down for a nap and I headed back to town to get my hair cut.
The next time I came home Stacia was playing with meringues. She wondered if she could air brush some....they didn't melt.
Next, she torched some of them (I'm sure there is a fancier name for that).
A nice fall plate for youth group.
I headed out to the garden to pick a salad...and got side tracked by flowers.
I brought some inside.
I did get lettuce, carrots, kale, onions, cucumbers, beets and green beans from the garden.
The girls had wrapped up their school and projects when I got back inside. They joined me in scrubbing veggies, setting the table and such.
I planted two kinds of beets this year: Chioggia (Bassano) candy cane striped, and Ruby Queen. Michael and Dad like beets. The candy cane beets grew much bigger...but how would they taste? I didn't notice a big difference.
Michael however is the beet connoisseur.
He likes the Chioggia (Bassano) better. He thinks they are sweeter. They certainly bleed less red than the Ruby Queen. I had a pork loin I made for the family. I avoid pork. I have a freezer of wild salmon...and it cooks up in 7 - 10 minutes in the air fryer.

Michael decided the salmon looked better than the pork and joined me. There was also an entire salad, green beans, beets and a cucumber tomato salad from our garden. I felt good about a meal we'd caught or grown.
After a bit of clean up time the girls and I left for church. The women are still not meeting so I used the time to run a couple of errands.
Y'ALL! ONE of dad's meds cost $237 and the full cost was over $1000!!!! Just let that sink in. I also dropped books off at the library and then went back to the parking lot to read.
After youth we dropped Allie off to have coffee and catch up with a friend.
