Our time away from the daily grind was fantastic! With a death in the family and then a sick little girl the to do list went out the window, but it was still relaxing. After our romp through the family farm we encountered some ticks. Megan ended up with one on her back. It was removed and then she started to complain of a headache Friday evening and was running a fever by Saturday morning. I spoke to the doctor and was told we would monitor her the next 24 hours. She didn't seem concerned about the tick bite. On Sunday morning she was running a 102.9 temperature with Tylenol. I am not a freak out kind of mom, but with the recent tick bite I was being extremely careful. We took Megan to the after hours clinic and this doctor was also concerned because of the tick bite. We started a round of antibiotics (which is the first time Megan has been on one) and hope and pray that is the end of it. Thankfully she is already feeling better.
Have you seen the salad in a jar on Pinterest and other blogs? I have seen several of them and thought what a great idea! While Megan spent time sleeping I was busy in the kitchen whipping some of them up.
I started out with a bagged lettuce mix that was on Managers Special at Kroger. I then added chopped carrots, a hard boiled egg, some cut up roasted chicken breast and topped it off with a little cheese. Really the combinations are endless.
I love a good salad in the summer. I don't always make them because sometimes lunch time is hectic with little ones ready for a rest. I am looking forward to enjoying a good salad without all of the last minute prep.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment.
