A day at the beach
At the end of the day, we went out to eat at Ken’s Pancake House (recommended by Blanche!, thank you). Mama has been craving steak for about 3 days now. The KTA (market) barbeques a nice 8 oz steak and serves it with corn and rice for $5!! We’ve happened to catch it twice now. Ohhhhh … I can taste it right now.
Dwight returned our borrowed Bronco next door and visited with Bob for a bit. He and his wife are super sweet! Susi was out feeding the homeless (as is her usual Tuesday night routine) and Bob was making spaghetti and getting ready for his once-a-week movie night. Bob asked if we ate meat and then proceeded to give us a box full of home-grown beef including roasts, hamburger and sirloin. Then, this morning (WED), Susi stopped by on her way to work with a box full of fruit from their farm called Rambutan. She showed us how to break open the shell with your thumb and then dig the fruit out with your teeth. She’s learned each of the boys’ names and responds when they say "Hi Susi!" They are such a sweet and generous couple. What a blessing.
After driving that stick-shift car and being out all day, my contractions kept up through the night. I was sure we would be having a baby today. But, alas, I’m still just "warming up". The wait continues.
