It’s been a long eventful summer already.... and it’s only June.  Wow!

To start the summer off, DD and SIL and grandbaby were here to help me do some major repairs on my house.  

 Now it’s been raining several times a week so that it is so green here, I hardly recognize my yard.  The lawn mowing and weeding have been endless.

Then, we had graduation.  My last baby threw his hat in the air and kicked the dust of the classroom off his sneakers.  So proud of him.

That same weekend, I had to attend the funeral of the dear friend and client I’ve cleaned for several years now, and known for more than a decade.

Tonight, we just got home from being in North Dakota for the weekend.  Our grandson turned one year old and was baptized, so two celebrations were rolled into one weekend.  Both of my daughters were able to be there, so I had 3/4 of my kiddos in one place which was nice.  Travelled with our dogs which makes any trip a much bigger undertaking, but they travelled like troupers!!!   Hubby showed more signs of life and gumption than he has in .... oh, say about a year!!!!

I’ve travelled for work already once this summer.  Worked hard and misbehaved hard (very fun!!!)  Hope to get the chance to travel later on as well.

One Saturday night my hubby took me out to eat.  This may not seem like a big deal to anyone, but it’s HUGE!!! We never go out for supper and almost never for lunch. He took me to the local burger joint where he knew he’d have to be social, and that just never never happens!

This week, as far as I know, I will get to learn to operate equipment at work that I’ve never run before.  Way cool! Always good to learn new skills.

And sadly, on Wednesday I will stand behind the guest register as we say goodbye to another member of the community, one of the nearest and dearest friends I’ve had since I’ve lived in this place.  I’m so glad Carolyn is at rest now.  She’s been waiting to go home to the Lord for quite awhile now,  but I am going to forever miss being able to go down to her house and confide in her and in turn listen to her stories.

There’s a lot of summer left.........
