We're BA-ACK!

After three hours the two satellite dish installers finally figured out our problem; we weren't communicating with our assigned satellite. So they arranged a new satellite to be assigned and voila--we are once again online. Finally.

Actually, it was good for us to get away from the Internet for a while and get back to reading a book in our free time instead of hopping online. However, at this particular time of our lives, we need to be able to go online to research medical issues and deal with probate estate issues, etc. so it's good to have the service back.

In the garden we're picking Early Girl, Better Boy and Super Fantastic tomatoes, although the Super Fantastic (my pick) isn't ripe enough to eat yet. I'm anxious to see what it tastes like since it's a new variety for us. We've got some good sized tomatoes ripening on the vine so we're happy. We're also picking lettuce and broccoli, so tonight we'll have a salad made of those two items with some bacon crumbles and some diced onions and cashews thrown in along with a dressing of mayo and vinegar. Pretty yummy on a hot, muggy summer night.

Tomorrow I'm going back up to Kettering for a post-ER visit to the doctor to have him check Mom's injured back muscles and perhaps see if we can get something prescribed for her nausea. She's not keeping any food down at all and I'm wondering at what point the fool doctor will start to show some concern about her condition. Arrggghhh.

Life was so much simpler on the road.

So glad to hear you are back on-line. :-)

How wonderful that you are already enjoying so many veggies from the garden. Mine is coming along.. so far we are enjoying the lettuce and best of all.. the peas. We (Coco, Sadie and I) love our in-garden-eating peas.

I am so sorry to hear of your mom's problems. The nausea would be concerning especially if she is not eating enough. Is she on any medications which may be contributing to this. I wish you both well with the ER visit.
