Lifeguards Maggie and Gracie stand by as Mya eats a PopsicleAmazingly, by early evening, I felt well enough to jump on the mower and work on the lawn a bit while Eva and Mya splashed in a little blow-up pool on the patio. Eva didn't actually get in the pool, but she did splash Mya who did swim around for a while.
Unfortunately, by about 9PM on Friday night, Eva was feeling whatever I had felt before, and she made a quick retreat to bed. And then, how to put this delicately, got up several times during the night.
Saturday morning, I didn't feel all that hot, but I was able to load up Mya and take her to spend the day with her grandmother and great-grandmother. We spent the majority of the day dozing on and off, her in the bedroom watching some Bio channel thing about ghosts and me in the living room watching various murder cases on a channel called ID which I was not familiar with.
By 4pm, we were up and ready to go pick up the bee, and though Eva could not bare the thought of food, I was capable of consuming the Number 5 with grilled jalapenos, sub onion rings and some cool swamp water at Whataburger.
Somebody is stuck!Thankfully, whatever we got, didn't get the bee. She is a little pistol, for sure! By the way, that is the platform rocker Eva found at a flea market for $40. The new fabric she covered it with cost more than the chair, which is usually how these great deals end up.
By Sunday morning, we were up and well enough to make the drive to Fredericksburg, the meeting point between here and San Angelo where the bee actually lives. Eva still hasn't decided on whether or not she can handle anything besides Saltines, but I have a few suggestions from readers on "must eat" places, including Alamo Springs Cafe and Hondo's. We'll see what looks doable once we get there.
