Mostly because she's the only friend I have left that will probably not have children before me. I think we're competing on who will hold out the longest. I also like her because she brings me fresh eggs from the hens she keeps on her front porch. Ok, maybe they're not on her porch, but I imagine them that way. I haven't been to her farm since she got them. She is my real-life Pioneer Woman.
Today we drove up to Danville to meet her and her tall-drink-of-water husband, Chad. We ate at a random place and then Justin and I got to try out The Hub Coffee House. I'm definitely going back there.
Today when I woke up, Bailey's left eye looked like this. I quickly awakened Justin because I thought her eye socket was hanging out. After an expensive trip to the vet it was discovered that her third eyelid [third??? really???] was hanging out due to swelling from a small scratch on her cornea. Hopefully this will be correct soon and not turn into a surgery. We just got her spade last week. I don't think my wallet can take any more for right now.
Right now I'm watching an old episode of Julia Child making a halo cake. It makes me feel like superwoman because she made so many mistakes and yet look what she accomplished! I must attribute some of my ability to her, though, for without her trailblazing this "servantless cook" would not be what I am. She was fearless and brilliant all at the same time.
I promise I have many interested blogging topics coming up, including theological thoughts, environmental ideas, and the ever-interesting subject of my thumbs. That'll keep you coming back for more, won't it?
