The best laid plans don't always work out. Today was going to be the day that our family got together for a big BBQ rib feed. Hubby was going to fix the ribs in what he terms low and slow (low heat for a long time) and I was going to make homemade potato salad, along with asparagus and my famous garlic French bread. Hubby was going to make everyone's favorite dessert. That is what was going to be.
On Friday afternoon hubby was sounding pretty rough. He felt okay, but his throat was scratchy and he was coughing here and there. Just before bed we both knew he had a cold. Sure enough we got up Saturday morning and he sounded even worse. So I called off our Sunday afternoon feed. It was to be the first time we've seen our great grand baby since she and her mom were released from the hospital. Oh well, what can you do.
Yesterday, before hubby felt under the weather, we went to Babies 'R' Us and got Audi Lynn a bassinet for our home. Our granddaughter, her significant other and baby Audi Lynn are house sitting for us while we're on our cruise next month and they needed something portable for her to sleep in while we are gone. We had fun finding the cutest one we could find with all the bedding. I was hoping they would get to see it today, but that will have to wait for another time.
I'm getting really excited about our cruise on the BC4 and have pretty much everything done for that trip. I'll be getting to meet bloggers that I've known for a very long time. Empress Bee and Sarge Charlie, Barb and Linda (we've met Linda), and Sandy and Dick. Sandy has warned me that she's going to squeeze the stuffing out of me. I'll let you know how that goes.
For Linda who hasn't a clue what islands we are going to see here's the list. Let the folks at work know where you will be and what day. Just saying...
