"These happy golden years are passing by, these happy golden years." Laura Ingalls Wilder

... Nathan was home, once again, from school. Seems he has a mystery disease that only strikes at school (uh-hum ... how convenient;). Rain washed the land and watered the gardens. The weeds have grown wild and need to be mowed once more. A nap was in order this afternoon and was taken. Dinner was an easy fix of leftover homemade lasagna from last night. A quick salad with homemade ranch dressing rounded out the meal. Today I vacuumed, mopped floors, washed laundry (always), made homemade mayo and ranch dressing ... and baked a rosemary-lemon pound cake. Little Jake blessed my day by being such a good boy. Now the day is over ... time to make sure Nathan is 'unplugged' and sleeping.
I leave you with a picture of my great grandmother, Elizabeth Groden Melcher ... a regular teenage hippy from the 1800's ... my spitting image, eh?:)
