It’s been a good Saturday – even including the ridiculous amount of apple stack cakes that my cousin Cheryl and I prepared. (I admit – she did most of the work there.)
Roger was up before 7:00 to do some grocery shopping with Bill, but the rest of us got to be lazy and sleep in. Each of my kids has dealt with a low-grade fever and a little bit of upset stomach this week, and this morning was Avery’s moment. She threw up a little bit (that’s what finally dragged me out of bed) and then she had a nice relaxing bath. She seemed pretty much like herself after that. Hopefully that will be the end of it.
After I had my shower, the two of us went out on the little green porch (the nest, we call it) and had some girl time in the morning freshness. She brushed my hair for a while, and then painted my toenails. First a coat of light pink, then silver glitter. 🙂 Then, to balance things out, I painted her toenails very neatly in a bright red. (Her choice.)
At one point the wind picked up a little bit, and she perked up with big eyes and said, “Oooh! Fresh air!!” So cute.
It was a nice start to a good day.
I don’t know about tomorrow… but I’m pretty sure it will have a good ending. My parents will be here! For the whole week! They’re working with me in the kitchen!
(Bill is “dreading” working with 4 Hunsbergers in the kitchen this week. I keep telling him it’s going to be the best week of his life. After all, we’re Hunsbergers. The only thing better than one Hunsberger is a whole bunch of us.) 🙂
