The ducks are so funny. What a memory they are making for you to tell your grandkids!

Is this a K-cup, a mix, or your own concoction?

Wow, that is a long time! Glad you have your house back now!

My two oldest are working. It hasn't rained yet but it looks like it will. The winds are picking up too. I'm going to cook dinner for my husband now, he should be here soon. Be back later.

Still cleaning and organizing for us. House plans were returned to the architect for some minor changes. Then they will go to the inspector and we will soon begin. But, of course, the major thing is packing up stuff to store while the work is being done. No rest for the wicked! Have fun with the baby-shopping. I had no idea that you can now shop for a baby. I did it the old-fashioned way: hospital, drugs, push, push, push, and then, voila!!! LOL!

Yep, I'm excited! What's everyone else going to do?

I am lucky like that, too, HMG. In addition to the house-building, Hubby does the housework and yardwork. I do most of the cooking and the laundry. We share dishwashing tasks. He also puts gas in my car. I can count on two or three fingers the number of times I have put gas in my car in the last 17 years!

Thank you SW. I appreciate your kind words. Such sadness for this poor man and his friends and family. All soldiers have been warned not to wear there uniforms in public. So far there has been a couple related incidents across the country - ''revenge'' attacks by activists. We just hope and pray that this doesn't escalate into something more.

How lovely, How did it go?

They return to school after the two week break and then break up for summer end of July for 6 weeks. We would like to do some day trips and perhaps a mini break somewhere. Other than that I am going to come up with some activities to do at home and there is a nice park nearby. I also want the kids to learn to swim this summer. Jacob is 5 and a little reluctant. Isaac is 1 so fingers crossed they enjoy it.
