Grand Central Station

It was grand central station around here today.

We were determined to make lots of progress in summer school.

The dog began howling.....David and Kyle (Land Lord) were here. They mowed, edged, pruned trees....looks nice.

As I was showing Kyle some fraying strings on mini-blinds...the dog howled again. The Kenmore repairman was here. Yay - for washers that agitate!

Stacia and I  had just enough time to rush to Walmart to price things for the Fall Rally. SHE had an ulterior motive. She bought some fabric squares and batting WITH HER OWN MONEY and set to work making gifts for four special girls in her life.

While Stacia worked, the boys occupied themselves upstairs....and I crunched more numbers and filled out four more funds' requests....we're nearing the end of THIS fiscal year and the kick off of NEXT year of ministry.  Really working hard to have my PWOC paperwork in order. ::grin::

Meanwhile....several re-threading episodes and a broken needle later....Stacia was done with four darling pillows for her friends. Not a bad afternoon project. I think I need to find some easy projects she and I can learn together. Shoot - I learned how to put a new needle on the thing today. We're on a roll. I may even get the waistband on that skirt before the girls come home. ::wink::

Hmmmmm.....not sure what else I did...but it was a busy day....and I'm ready to call it a day.

We were sad to hear that Arielle isn't feeling well....we tried to Skype with the kids but everyone is out and about.

Being a slow news day we checked out Izaak's observation....if you google "giant Mexican head lice" look whose photo shows up - bottom middle. ::snort::

I'll end on that disturbing note!

She probably isn't feeling well because she googled and found that pic! Oh my!

Hope she feels better soon!
