Winky…that’s a cute name for a smiley! I kind of thought it looked like me since I’ve been viewing the world through one eye or the other all week. I’ve been sick…and I’m tired of being sick. I have a wonderful husband, though, and he has done his best to take care of me.
We haven’t done much this week. Chip went shopping with the Richmonds at Cool Springs and bought some jeans and a t-shirt. I took Parker to A.E. here in town and bought him some jeans, shorts, and three shirts. I’m not sure that he really needed two of the shirts, but I know how much fun it is to get new clothes for school. My–has that boy grown! He’s almost as tall as Chip and has outgrown all of his clothes, or at least his pants.
My biggest accomplishment this week has been getting my computer in the kitchen (our really old one) hooked up to the internet. It is SO nice to be able to sit in here and check my email, or read a recipe or an article while I’m working in the kitchen. Yes, if you know me very well, you know that getting an electronic anything to work is very exciting.
I talked to Melida, and to Russ. He has been taking a little row boat out on their lake every morning at 6:00 and fishing. Isn’t that the neatest thing? They are doing fine, I suppose, but we do miss them here in the ‘boro. I called Melida this morning to let her know that our friend Sandy’s father died. It really gripes me that the church knew about it, but none of her friends knew. He died Monday, and the funeral was today in Memphis. Our lunch bunch probably would have driven over had we known. Another thing to work on…communication!
I’m sure we’ll have a fun weekend. It looks like it could rain. Parker needs to get the yard mowed as soon as he gets home today, I guess. He’s been listening to Burt Bacharach. Imagine that! It’s great music, but a far cry from rap–Praise God!
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Stop by for a sandwich and coke, or a cup of coffee sometime.
