2. I served as my granddaughter Olivia's babysitter for about three hours this afternoon. It's the first time I've ever done such a thing! Olivia was supposed to nap for a good length of time, but she woke up within ten minutes of Molly departing. So, I brought Olivia upstairs and fed her, read books with her, watched some Popeye on YouTube, played with toys on the floor, helped her walk around the house. We had a good time and she was happy.

I drew upon some cooking tips I picked up from about four minutes of watching Rachel Ray and Shaquille O'Neal cook burgers and fixed the Deke and Molly some hamburger mixed with eggs, sauteed onion, Worsteshire sauce, and garlic powder, made paddies, fried them up, and made some corn. It was simple, but from the sounds of their groans of pleasure, the Deke and Molly were pleased with the simple meal I prepared this evening.
