On Friday, Bob and I drove down to Boone to visit my good friend, Pat, who joined us to package meals on Sat. She hosted us while we were in the area. She was a very gracious host. It's always fun to visit friends.
On Sat., after doing the Meals from the Heartland, we met Bob's daughter, Cari, and her husband, Dave, at Famous Daves where we enjoyed excellent food, great company, and very interesting conversation. We always enjoy our visits with Cari and Dave.
Before returning to Pat's, we stopped in at Marilyn's to return some things she left when she visited in Aug. We also had a very nice visit with her.
Next day, on Sunday, Pat's son, Wayne, and his family invited us to go boating at Saylorville. We were very excited to go. Unfortunately the boat battery was not working. Wayne went to buy a new battery, but it was the wrong size and didn't fit the boat's area for it, so it ended up that we didn't really get to go boating. Instead we drove back to Boone and had a nice afternoon picnic and fun time at their house. It's not what you do, but being with friends and family that really counts.
Here we are waiting.
See the water?
No boating. OK. Then trampoline fun.
For Monday, we were planning to go back down to Des Moines and volunteer for Meals From the Heartland, but I got really sick Sunday night, and it lasted through all day Monday. So I pretty much slept all day, some at Pat's house, some in the car on the way home, and at home. I'm feeling better today. I hate being sick. Don't you?
