I am sitting here waiting for the rains that are predicted, happy to see my plants watered in. I planted 6 tomato plants over the weekend and I have more to go in the ground as soon as the seedings get a bit bigger and stronger.
I also planted green beans, eggplant, cucumbers, squash, and peppers.
The big news, though, is that Mike completed his lifeguard certification!!
I am so proud of him!
I was on pins and needles all afternoon yesterday, waiting to hear how the testing went. He had a written test, plus pool rescue tests, plus CPR testing. It was a long day with 16 kids going through all that. BUT - now that he has passed the test, he has a job at the pool this summer, and that's a great thing.
Then we had to go to Kroger, so he didn't get to rest.
He realizes that now he can save someone's life. What an awesome accomplishment.
I invited his friend Bart over to eat dinner with us, and he and Mike played ping pong for a long time before dinner.
I fixed steaks, mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, and pecan pie and ice cream for dessert. It was all good.
Bart doesn't like mashed potatoes. I was astonished. I've never met anyone who didn't like mashed potatoes. Wow. He did try some asparagus, though, and I give him credit for that.
So.... I fixed potato pancakes for Mike for breakfast.
