You can stop emailing me and calling me and dropping by...there isn't going to be a post today as I have been very busy...too busy for my usual "throw something together in 15 minutes and get it posted" manner of blogging.
Oh, okay...here's a bit of catch-up and then that's it for today, but I will have TWD ready to go fairly early tomorrow so you all can check and not have to keep checking back to see if I posted or not.
My sister Karen is back in her house in Cedar Rapids...sort of. She has access to the house, but the water was flooded up to counter top level and everything on the main floor is pretty much ruined...and muddy. She is working on getting all the utilities, etc. back in working order and when that all gets taken care of, she can have the inspection and then she will be allowed to live in her upstairs while she gets her downstairs back in order. Yuck...what a lot of hassle. She is, however, "surprisingly upbeat" (to quote the movie "How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days").
Team Indiana brought home the First Place Trophy for the Arizona swim meet, and while they did take a photo of the boys with their trophy, they did it while the boys were still all in their drag suits and Speedo briefs, so I am just not sure I should publish that on this site as there is a whole lotta skin showing...but, they are swimmers, and they are all in really good shape...I mean it is not like going down to the local pool and seeing guys in Speedo briefs trying to LOOK like they are in shape...these guys really ARE in shape. Still thinking. I know...I am still a prude...but one of those boys is my son and I know the rest of them, so this is not an easy decision. The guys all want me to post it.
Oh, and by the way, the photo is of my Hollyhock garden...all purples and whites and a kind of pinkish purple...very pretty and lovely looking. I just love Hollyhocks as they are so old-fashioned and remind me of my Grandma Ohl and my Aunt Minnie...both who had Hollyhocks in their gardens while I was growing up in Iowa. Lovely memories.
Enough...I have a great book waiting and bedtime is definitely 10 as my alarm goes off at 5:15 a.m. whether I am well rested or not. Goodnight...hope you enjoyed your post!
