Summer fun

While reading outside Sunday afternoon for several hours, I finished Confederates in the Attic. Now I’m reading God’s Hotel, a book about the last almshouse in America. We have one stubborn hen that refuses to nest in the nesting boxes. The nephew got an impromptu swim time today at a friend’s house. He loved it!

I’ve been a bit quiet around here as I’ve had some horrible allergy/cold combo the past few days. After a surprise 2 hour nap, I am starting to feel like I will live again.  Pooky the Siamese continues to entertain us all. She held me captive by sitting on my lap this evening while others…

Today mostly consisted of unpacking and hanging out at the hospital while waiting for Jacob’s MRI to be completed. Mom and I watched some Monk while we waited. Plus, between resting and waiting, I have less than 40 pages left to finish Battlefield Earth!

Camp

Last week was our church’s family camp! Here are some of my favorites moments . . .  Highlights included playing canasta, bonfires on the beach, meeting up with old friends, building sand hippos and crocodiles for the contest, holding my nephews a bunch, reading Battlefield Earth, and eating candy. It was a good week! But…

Today was an unexpected rest and recovery day. I accidentally took a 2 1/2 hour nap. Boy, was I surprised when I woke up and it was 6pm!  But then I made cornbread and gf cinnamon rolls. They turned out quite good, which was a nice surprise. 

Finished with Finals

This week we’ve had some young men staying with us. Isaac, Peter and I started to set up for Dutch Blitz when Tonka decided he wanted to play too. At first he came in and laid down right in the middle, but eventually we coaxed him to sit off to the side and be content…

Rest day

Came home right after church today and enjoyed actually sitting down and reading for longer than a few minutes. Currently, I’m enjoying Styled and Battlefield Earth. Then I spent some time organizing photos, catching up on the phone with a friend and watching the first episode of season six of The Great British Bake Off with…

Compassion Connect

Today I got to volunteer with Compassion Connect. It’s an organization that helps churches provide free medical clinics. It was so exciting to be a part of it this year. I didn’t have a glamorous job at all, just checking volunteers in and out, but it was amazing to walk around and see everyone working…

Baby shower

Well, shucks. I didn’t get around to posting yesterday, thanks to this little guy. I helped host his baby shower. And I forgot to take a single picture. Argh! Yesterday was one of those days where I had a million things to do and instead of stressing out I was able to give it up…
