Happy Friday! Have you had a wonderful week? Ours has been pretty enjoyable. My oldest has probably had more fun than any of us. She’s been at church camp all week. Other than the early mornings, of which she is not a fan, I’m guessing she’s had a wonderful time. They’re traveling home today, so I’d appreciate your prayers for a safe trip.
Those of use who’ve stayed home enjoyed things like:
$1 scoop ice cream night at Baskin Robbins. I love $1 scoop night. It’s just enough of a treat to enjoy without feeling guilty about the calories. I had my favorite: old-fashioned butter pecan. What’s your favorite?
A game marathon of our two favorites – Uno Attack and Aggravation. Luck seemed to be in my favorite, but Megan did beat me a few times…and took great pleasure in doing so. Josh didn’t want to play, but he hung out with us.
Megan also enjoyed a little of this:
Our cat, since he’s become an indoor/outdoor cat, has been bringing us lots and lots of yard moles – to the tune of one a day or so. He is a fearless hunter, our Gus, and he provides well for his people. This one, however, was still alive:
Although I’m not very crazy about them, I couldn’t just not give this guy a fighting chance, so we got a shovel, since I wasn’t sure how fast he’d be (not very, I discovered) and, after a little convincing, got him on it long enough to put him off the porch and into the grass. He must have survived the night because Gus didn’t bring us any presents the next day.
We had a hailstorm Wednesday with some pretty good-sized hail.
Josh and Megan spent the night with their grandparents Wednesday night. Exciting mom that I am, I was most excited about going to bed as early as I wanted – how sad is that? – and getting a good night’s sleep.
I couldn’t sleep. Figures.
I got up Thursday morning and went running, then, came home, got ready and went grocery shopping. Alone. I don’t think I’ve ever been grocery shopping that early in the morning. It was so quick with the store nearly deserted!
Josh came home from his grandparents with a camouflage shirt he’d picked up at the thrift store. He wanted to make a cover – which has a name, but I can’t remember what it is – for his air-soft so it doesn’t give him away when he’s hiding. I thought the result was pretty creative:
Saturday morning I’m running my first 10K. I’m hoping to be able to do it in an hour and fifteen minutes or less. We’ll see. Either way, as long as I finish, I’ll be proud of myself. I never thought I’d enjoy running, much less for 6.2 miles at a time.
