First, it’s Friday and that means Java's Follow Friday 40 and Over. Stop on over and take a peek.

Also, did you notice anything? Java made me another button this time for my main blog. It is so cool and I love it. Thank you Java, truly thank you!!!

I was off today, well off from daycare but dang did I work hard. First Brenda and I went for our walk. We are work in a 5K competition walk next Saturday for our town’s Fit City get together. We already walk 4-5 miles and a 5K is just over 3 but it’s more of a speed walk so wanted to time ourselves to just know what we can really do. Then I worked in the bathroom. Our linen closet was a disaster. I wish I had taken a before and after pictures. It took me 3 hours to go through everything, fold, organize and put back. I took out 1 large garbage bag of extra daycare kids clothes I just don’t need. I did keep a small tote of extras. I took out all the swimming towels and suits and bagged them up to be stored for the winter. I put all the extras into small totes to keep them together. Like the shampoo’s, deo’s…that kind of stuff. Then I got the cleaning supplies on one shelf. The sheets and blankets into a tote and finally we buy toilet paper, paper towels and Kleenex by the case and now that’s all together. Then came my underwear drawer. It’s now all nice and neat, until I wash clothes and stuff things back in there that is. I also got a call today, for a new little boy. I have an interview tomorrow. We’ve talked a lot so far and it’s a go for him coming but we’ve never met so I never hold my breath until it really happens but Lord knows I need a new wee one. So that meant a really good house cleaning and yard pick up. First impressions you know. Then I finally got to cutting the lilacs back and some tree trimming. Next was a big dinner with my parents. I invited them over for pork chops, red potatoes, corn, green tomato bread and green tomato crisp. I paid bills, did some filing and now am done for the day. Well posting and reading some blogs are next but that’s relaxing and enjoyable.

Yesterday the kids and I went to the library. They had a special guest speaker. Chef Sharrony. She’s a grandma that came to teach the kids about apples and how to make apple sauce. It was really cool and of course I forgot my camera at home but I did take a few pictures with my phone so please excuse the blur but you can get the idea.

Then I took Anton out for a slushy before I took him home. Anton is my mini-Mike and he only comes once a week after school so I take a little bit of extra time with just him and last night we went to the DQ.

As you can see there is never a dull moment here. Mondays we visit with great grandma, Tuesdays we just stay home and play, Wednesday is library day and a trip to visit Kim,  Thursdays I’m off because of preschool and Fridays is a mixture of a short visit at great grandma’s and a visit to the farm. Plus scouts, next Tuesday is fire trucks at school….well you get the idea.

I hope that your life is full and wonderful and well, just the best.

So that’s that my friends. I hope you all have the most blessed Friday and a terrific, relaxing, enjoyable weekend.
