Yesterday we got a nice bike ride in. Check out my link to the bike journal. It was short, only 7.6 miles,but a perfect day for it. Cool, light breeze. Wonderful.
I got up early yesterday and made my cake. It looked so pretty and was a real hit at the dinner. My MIL enjoyed her company.
She is starting to get jaundiced looking, which means yellow. It happens with this type of cancer. She hadn't been, this just started.
Our relatives were shocked to see how much thinner she was they last month when they were here. One of Ricks uncles came who is going to be 92 in 2 weeks, on the 4th of July. I made the flag cake with him in mind and he loved. So weird to see all these relatives so elderly. I remember when I first got married to Rick. He had so many relatives it intimidated me and this uncle had the biggest booming voice. Now from an old stroke he barely speaks above a whisper. Old age isn't always kind.
The house was a mess again. I started washing up and my MIL said, It's hopeless, they started messing it up again the second you left. I told her to start getting on them about picking up after themselves. After all, they are old enough to clean up after themselves.
My BIL made spagetti but we didn't eat any as we got there late because of the ride, Grin, We were just in time to deliver the dessert.
Well, got to go, I have another ride to get ready for. We are going for the 27 mile ride today. Not sure if I am ready for that but it is suppose to be cool. Wish me luck.
