A little everyday chit chat around the table...like we all used to do around my Grandmothers' tables when I was growing up. A little of this...a little of that...nothing too special...but as the years pass, all of it seems so. Come, sit at the Table, contribute, enjoy, stay as long as you want, leave when you need to, and return often!
The flowering crab apple tree in the backyard outside the family room window...it is so beautiful with all these pink flowers...I just want to sit each day and gaze at it as long as possible. Is it GREEN in IOWA yet???
Good evening...busy day, how about there? Carmel had a day off school today, so Matt's early morning swim practice was just for the non-Carmel High School swimmers in his group (i.e. Matt, Daniel, Stevie, Harrison, Ali, and Sarah) as the CHS swimmers got to sleep in a little and practice later. I had the parking lots and lanes all to myself when I dropped Matt off...I could have spun wheelies if I wanted to (not that I really wanted to, but I could have!).
Alex surfaced around 12:45 p.m. since he is a Carmel High School student...how on earth do teenage boys manage to sleep this much? I cannot think that I would ever have been able to stay asleep past the hour of 7:00 a.m., or possibly 8:00 a.m. at a real stretch...it must be one of those "guy things." He wanted Chinese food for lunch, so we went off for a nice lunch together and then ran a few errands, filling up the gas tank, etc. (OMW).
Matt had no afternoon swim practice due to the change about in swim times for the day off, so we went to the yarn shop to get more yarn for me...I am becoming a knitting fiend, let me tell you. (While Matt is not all that shot up about looking at a lot of yarn, he does rather enjoy chatting with the lovely high school girls who work there after school and on weekends, so it has never been a problem to get Matt to swing by the yarn shop, which isn't that far from his school, for supplies...how fortunate is that little deal? They are nice girls...two swimmers and then a couple of homeschooled girls, one of which he knew when he was younger.) Swim meet this weekend, so I wanted to be sure to have yarn so I can knit. You heard it here first.
We had a light dinner and then Mark and Matt went golfing (surprise, surprise, right?), while I made tons of pasta salad for the Staff Appreciation Luncheon at Guerin tomorrow. All that is left to do is write 21 thank you notes for my share of the notes, and then I am retiring to read a most excellent book until I can't keep my eyes open any longer...oooh, can't wait for that!
Tomorrow is a crazy busy day so don't look for my craft day post until after dark. It will be luminous!
