THE GOOD ~ THE BAD ~ AND THE PAINFUL






 Oh what a month of August.  It was truly good, bad and painful.
The good was getting to spend time with our grandsons.
 Lunch with Kaleb and Elijah before Kaleb heading back to college in Illinois.  Berry Cobbler was on the dessert menu.
 Then Elijah decided he wanted to do a cooking class with his girlfriend, Allison and Grandma before she heads back east to college.  Berry cobbler was one they did.  And a great job I must say.  It was "hands on".

Scone were also a hands on experiment and they turned out great.  What a fun evening.

Cooking class this month was good too.  Chicken Salad recipe from my friend Kris was a big hit.  I will post the recipe soon since this is such a long post.


The BAD was a call from Kaleb.  He had a knee injury at a scrimage football game when he got back to college.  Waiting to see what the MRI shows and how long he will be out of commission.

THE PAINFUL ~ YIKES A TOOTHACHE

A bad tooth.  My dentist was on vacation so had to suffer a little longer.  I didn't realize I had a problem until it was too late.  No pain.  Then all of a sudden, I knew I had a problem and the pain increased.  So Thursday...out it comes and that will take care of the pain.  They will add another tooth to my partial.  Old age...the eyes, the hearing, the teeth.  HaHa.  All in all I'm very thankful for my health.

It was a nice break as far as fb and blogging.  I think I finished 12 books.  Ready now to get into Fall and our Women's Bible Study that starts Sept. 13th.  A study in I and II Thessalonians.  

What was your August like? Will be around to visit all of you after my dentist adventure.

  1. I can feel your pain! Toothaches are the worst! I have one tooth that will need attention in the near future. NOthing to do but pull it and then I will need another partial with an extra tooth in it!!
    Looks like your August was amazing!! We are having a little lull in the action after all the business of Kailey's open heart surgery in July. I'm enjoying this slower month.
    Those scones look so GOOD!!! It all does and your grands are so cute! They do love YOU!!!

    1. Oh Linda, I can't believe your July. I didn't know of Kiley's surgery. So hope all turned out well. Looks like we are both in the same "tooth" boat. Will sure be glad to have it behind me.
      I so enjoy our adult grandchildren.

  2. Anyone suffering dental pain has my total sympathy. Hope that you are able to get the pain under control. Sorry to learn of your grandson's injury and I am sure that he was not planning on being laid up and off the field and I hope that he doesn't have to be for long. Same old same old at my blog...a big barn getting cleared out. The end. =D

    1. I guess toothache pain is really the worst. Effects you whole face. Praying Kaleb's MRI shows something that can be fixed without too much time off.

  3. Oh boy, what a month you have had.
    Pain is no bueno!!
    Glad they can add to your partial.
    I have to say I'm glad to see a post from you. It's just fun to see what's going on in your life. I have lots to share but will do it perhaps later today or tomorrow via FB private message. World is so full of ups and downs and tough answers to prayer.
    Happy No Pain Day.

    1. Thanks for the visit Terra. Been out of touch for a long time. I love scones, and make them quite often. The last cobbler I made was fresh peach. It was really good too.

  5. Oh, so sorry about your tooth! I can't believe your dentist office couldn't refer you to another office so you didn't have to suffer!

    Hope Kaleb heals quickly! No fun to be hurt so far from home!

    1. Betsy, I waited for my personal dentist, as she has a heart for retired pastors and missonaries and her cost is so reasonable for us "Retired Seniors" We don't have dental insurance, so I chose to wait for her. The pain only got more severe this past week. The meds made it manageable.

      Poor Kaleb has had so many injuries in his 4 yeara of college. I told him he has such a big heart for football, I wish his body would cooperate.

      Will be over to visit soon. Hugs

  6. I feel your pain when it comes to teeth. I have a bad one too with no dental insurance. I go to see him mid-September. My choice to wait. I am petrified of dentists.

  7. Oh Martha...teeth can be such a blessing for eating, and a curse when they hurt and have to be fixed or pulled.

    Sorry you have a bad one too.

  8. You look awesome! Sorry about the pain and the bad stuff but maybe the good helped to cancel out the bad.
