Here it is after 9:00 p.m. and I am still awake. I took a really great nap today and yesterday. Also had a really good long sleep last night. I usually go up to bed about 9:00p.m., read my Bible for about 30 minutes and nod off. So I feel sort of strange being up right now! Sort of like I am doing something bad, LOL!! Geez!
I went to pick Katie up from camp this morning. I am trying to sound casual here but the truth is I missed her so much and couldn't wait to hear about her week at camp!
We were supposed to pick them up between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. I didn't want to seem too anxious so I decided to wait until 8:30 to leave the house! Imagine my surprise when I got a call at 8:15 asking me where I was?! "I'm on my way!" I told her as she hung up the phone.
I won't get into all of the detail, the important thing is that she had a really great time. She was very happy and I was very happy to see her, I received an actual hug from her! After we got home of coarse.
I know she was wiped out as by 11:30 a.m. she was napping! And so was I ! Well you know, it was hot as blazes here today, way too hot to work outside. And you will be happy to know that other than a nice big welcome home dinner I cooked for Kate, I didn't do any work today!
I really wanted to do some work in the yard today but it was 105 degrees with the heat index. I was dreading watering the plants. I guess God heard me because a nice storm rolled through early evening. Wasn't that nice of him? All of my plants received a good watering and it didn't cost me a penny!
It was still lightly raining when I took the dogs out at 9:00p.m. Katie had already went to sleep, again. The rain and the breeze felt heavenly. I have been working here and there on my toad house. It is a slow tedious project but it is looking rather nice. I read somewhere that a single toad can live up to 40 years! I wonder how long it could live if it were married! Sorry, I just couldn't help myself !
Katie informed me that there will be another camp for teens in August. She really wants to go again. My basement needs a good cleaning. We struck up a deal. Starting tomorrow after church, we will start working on it. There is just too many things that need to be done around here and I can't do it all myself anymore. So we will see how much help she will be!
Don't worry, even if she helps a little, I will still let her go but we won't mention that o.k.? She starts driving with her instructor next week for the next six weeks. Then the plan is a trip to see her big sis in North Carolina. The next camp would be after that.
I am just happy that she has things to do this summer, last summer was so long and boring for her. Nothing that I suggested was good enough!
I went for a visit yesterday to my son's house. My granddaughter and two of her friends were having a lemonade stand. Good thing grandma showed up. I had to show them the fine art of sales and customer service! They ended up making $17.00 ! It was fun, I have a photo but my camera is in the other room and it's time for this girl to go and get some rest.
I have done enough sitting the past two days, so after church tomorrow I will get busy again. Well maybe !
I hope you all enjoy your Sunday.
