Pete has been home from the hospital for about two weeks now and is doing well. He has almost finished his at home medications and then we wait. Last time it took about 2 1/2 weeks for the cellulitis to reappear. We are hopeful that this time it will stay away. If not, he will have to go to a larger regional hospital that has an infectious unit as the doctors are unable to pinpoint where this is coming from.

Pete purchased a new to us truck last weekend and it has come in most handy as trucks often do. However, a few weeks back, a turkey flew into my car and it was in the shop all last week so Pete chauffeured me to and from work as well as running Jeremiah and well as his own travelling to and from's been a long tiring week but Team Lawrence pulled together and got it done!

I spent yesterday morning at the annual Laurel Festival with my Mom, walking around The Green/park in the center of town looking at arts and crafts. We both got a henna tattoo which was fun and I found a painting that I fell in love with at first sight. It came home with me. :) I'm pretty picking anymore about what kinds of things come home because honestly, we already have more than enough and secondly, I'm a tightwad...if it doesn't speak to me without hesitation, I will admire the item and move on.

I DID see one other piece of art that was absolutely stunning but with an $800.00 price tag, I simply couldn't justify it.

Afterwards, my mom joined us for a picnic at one of our local state parks for a picnic. She and I visited, did a little reading and watched Pete and Jeremiah do some fishing.

We had plans to attend the Billtown Blues Fest today for the Gospel Blues event but it rained hard all night and has been raining all day. It is an outside event, rain or shine. If the rain was just off and on, we'd go but that isn't the way it worked out. We decided that it was a perfect day to stay in for a lazy day at home. I've been reading for hours, laundry is going, a large chunk of the piled up laundry in our bedroom has been put away and one 33 gallon garbage bag has been filled with clothes for either Sally's or Goodwill...wherever I drive by first, dishes are done, a pot roast is in the crock pot...perfect for this cool day, we've all dozed a bit, had some popcorn and have just been enjoying each other.
