Chicken Soup with Rice!

I was in Texas last week visiting my Son and his family.  Their third child was born, and I thought they might need an extra pair of hands.  If you read my post last Friday, you know that I had a little trouble the last 10 minutes of my trip, and I ended up in the ER!  It turns out that it really was the stomach bug that got me, and knocked me cold behind the wheel.  I was not injured at all during the wreck!

I isolated myself for about 24 hours and then when I did come out I didn't hold the baby or handle their food for another couple of days.  I really did not want them to get sick!  I am glad to say that nobody did!  At least not with the stomach bug!  I did a lot of dishes and laundry, and reading books to the older two.  I hadn't read Chicken Soup with Rice in a long time, I made up for it last week.  The two year old loves to read along with you, sometimes it is the book you are reading, mostly it is a different book!

During nap time, and in the evening when the kiddos were snoozing, I worked on, and finished the Circle Socks, (my 4 year old granddaughter called them Muppet Socks!), and I continued knitting the edge on this Shetland Tea Shawl.  Since Dear One flew out to drive home with me, I was able to make real headway on it as we drove home.  I now have 86 of 112 pattern repeats done!  I hope to be at 95 by tonight.  I can't wait to finish this and get it blocked!

We had an uneventful trip home, for which I am grateful! The car drove well, though a little noisy with  the wind whistling on that door.  We were home by midnight, and had a great day off on Thursday to recover from all the excitement. I am preparing for a visit from two of my daughters, the oldest of the two is expecting her first in July, so I know we will have a really sweet time.

Until next time, Happy once, Happy twice, Happy Chicken Soup with Rice!  Tina

It's got a real catchy tune, too!!! That's one of my favorite books from the Nutshell Library!!! I'm glad you're safely home with knitting to keep you cozy!
