I guess some sparkers thought I was very organized when I mentioned wrapping Christmas gifts, but in reality, I am taking them with me when I go to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in August. they are for Connie and her three kids.The twins, Connor and Jack, will be three the week before I arrive and Lauren is four. I carry them up there so I do not have to ship them in December. Last Christmas it cost me over $50 to send them!! I did not go up there, so had to ship..

It i sin the mid 90's here right now, so the a/c is on,,what a great investment that turned out to be!! To those out west, it sounds cool, but when the humidity is 60-80%, it is not cool, or fab, or rad, or whatever, it is just miserable.. so we just jump in the pool, run back in the house in the a/c...

my basement is even cooler than upstairs!! Ahhh...

    You are right about the basement. Our son is going to sleep in his basement this summer. He has a bedroom that he is getting ready for now.

92 degrees!

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

Whew!! Watering plants, finishing filling my pool, it is one hot puppy out there,, humidity is about 68%. Even with ice cold water going in my pool, the temp is a nice 72 degrees. My ideal is 76 degrees. Tomorrow the temp will be 96 degrees, so that pool will be 76 degrees when I get home from work.

Getting anxious for my vacation.. Wanting to pack my bags and cooler. Still have to wrap the Christmas gifts too...

    Wrapping Christmas gifts now is new to me. I am not that organized. I did order some gifts for my great nieces and nephews. They are in the closet, and will be for a while.

You can wait till at least october to wrap the Christmas Gifts, Can't you?

Today is planting some veggies and working on our berry patches. Bought huge bags of soil yesterday, got a very tall shepherds hook to hang a tomato planter, mowed Mom's lawn,, that is three acres, so takes awhile, but easier to do than ours.

I got a pleasant surprise yesterday: Drew, my friend's son who is graduating next weekend, stopped in and gave me two tickets to his LAST play in high school, "Into the Woods". HE plays in it but is also the narrator. His long-term goal is to be an actor/director and do every aspect of a play/movie. HE has been in every play in his high school since he got there, sang, danced, props,etc. Starred in lots of them. He has been totally focused on THAT career, nothing else since he was in fifth grade, so I know he will be UP there in the future. College is in his plan first of course,, he has been accepted in around twelve of them all free-ride scholarships, has 4.09 GPA.

The play is three hours long, so I will be enjoying his play this afternoon!!
