We had a busy weekend. Morgan came over yesterday morning at 830a. We had breakfast, then went to visit my brother. We hadn't been over for a long time, so he was pleased, plus Morgan was thrilled as he got to play the piano, whistle back and forth to my brother's birds, pet the cats, and feed the tropical fish, some of which are huge and really neat. Then we went to the grocery store. Came home, watched a few episodes of Avatar-Last Airbender, then Morgan and the dog headed out the back door. He was out there for about three hours, playing all kinds of imaginary games. It was so fun to watch him. OUur yard is huge and wild, much bigger than his at home, plus we aren't fussy about him lining up old tree limbs, boxes, etc. for play forts and the like. He finally went home about 4p.
I did walking and qi gong for that day.
Today, he came over again for breakfast, home around noon. I didn't get any sleep last night,but we all pitched in and did some cleaning before he went home, plus he got to play more in the backyard.
I moved some stacks of very dusty books in the LR, freeing up two shelves which I dusted and am beginning to fill with my collection of cats and other pieces. It looks nice. When I am done, I'll take a picture. Rog did the dishes, kitchen trash, and cooked me up a nice steamer of brown rice. (I had it with shelled, roasted pistachios and a tiny dab of butter. So yummy!) while Morgan helped me with the rest of the dustbins. He also washed off some knick-knacks that are his...marbles, a dragon, etc.
Michelle, I would urge you to watch that video my doc recommended, "Knives Over Forks." It has some astonishing scientific evidence about food and cancer, heart dis-ease, etc. Actually, I would urge anyone who is interested in good, healthy nutrition watch it. As my doc said, it is very "mainstream," not a bunch of *softies* eating alfalfa sprouts.:-)
