Husband’s first leg of his travels today has begun. He is in flight at this very moment from Tunis to Paris. He will have what amounts to “just enough” time in Paris and then will be on his way to Atlanta, if all flights are on time, about 7 a.m. The flight from Paris to Atlanta is a very long 9 hour flight. I can only imagine how anxious I will be. Last time he traveled things weren’t as tense around airports.
So yes is is 3 a.m. and I am up. Not able to sleep – tummy troubles – probably due to being a little stressed about Husband’s traveling. Plus Little Man got into fire ants while out helping me pick, what ended up being 30 pounds, of tomatoes yesterday between rain showers. So we have had to apply itch medicine to the stings every few hours. If you dont have fire ants be so very thankful. They are horrible.
Our swimming was canceled yesterday and the Michelles brought the food here and we enjoyed a meal and Grandson as well. Oldest Son surprised us with a visit yesterday afternoon. And before you write me nasty notes about letting a child climb in a dryer, I know, I know. I didn’t LET him. Who knew that was a favorite place of his??? Now we do, and keep the laundry room door closed.
I only wish I had a picture of the day he opened the VERY full “old fashioned screwed down” pencil sharpener in our school room and poured all the shavings onto the wood floors and then sat in it and rubbed his hands until he was completely covered. I had to bleach my bathtub after bathing him!
By the way…here is our schoolroom all neat and clean.
After this picture was taken we moved a sofa under that window and added a floor lamp – a bit of a reading nook. During this end of year packing up, I boxed 7-8 boxes of books to be stored. Yes, I should probably donate them somewhere but it is very very hard for me to let go of books.
I have been going over in my head what I want to cook for Husband the first few days he is home and trying to get back on a normal schedule. First thing tomorrow when he wakes up is a FULL breakfast…eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, coffee and orange juice. And if I can get into town today and pick up a ham, he will have a slice of ham or two as well. I am thinking of cooking a roast for tomorrow night. He loves beef roast, seared and then cooked in a slow oven for several hours and then at the end add potatoes and carrots to the pot. However, I might sear it and then put it in the crockpot so we can not worry about it until time to eat and can nap and watch movies all day.
Oh…Amy B, your package is ready to go out in today’s mail…so you should have it either Saturday or Monday…let me know when it arrives.
I will be doing another giveaway very VERY soon…this time…a BOOK!!! So, stay tuned.
