I cannot believe it’s Wednesday again so soon. Time flies when you have a nearly eight year old grandson to talk with all day. He and Grandpa went to lunch while I did errands. Got groceries (Too much to carry in!) and found myself buying snacks for a growing boy with a hollow leg. One day next week, we’re going to make our own mini pizzas for lunch. Today, probably hot dogs. That’s ok once in awhile. One thing that is fun to do is sit and color with a child. I hope we finish our pictures today.
If you know anything about Zentangle, good. I have a coloring book that is full of animal pictures done with that technique. Here is a link to their website. I’m just fascinated by the technique. It is very relaxing as long as you simply let the pen do the work. You will surprise yourself. I’ll try and post our pictures tomorrow. Hopefully, we’ll be finished. You never know how the schedule can change with an eight year old in the house.
It’s a good thing I have other staff members, here at the home office in Gretna, Nebraska. Why, right now, we’re having a conference in the studio. The Babe is gone and the dogs surprisingly are hanging out with me for awhile. Kind of a surprise. Oh, and we’re listening to some Ray Scott Music. The tunes are good, folks. Song of the Day is, “Ashtray on a Motorcycle.” It’s a broken up love song of sorts, but the comparisons are quite humorous. Writing a song must be quite like writing a book. The words must be precise. So must the melody. Ray Scott does it all quite well. Check him out.
It was funny, I think Lexie (left) just came in to look out the window. Goldie (right) followed her and Lexie became trapped. She won’t walk past Goldie, and Goldie won’t walk past Lexie. It must be another girl thing I don’t understand. I had three brothers, so I don’t “get” the chick stuff. Guy stuff, yes, but not girl stuff. My only girl cousin on my dad’s side of the family, along with our one aunt, Dad’s sister, share that exclusive club. It is unique. But then, I always had my own room. Blessings abound when you search for them. Try it. You’ll like it!
Our first severe weather forecast late yesterday was for apple-sized hail. I have never heard a forecast calling for hail that size before. I had all sorts of bad visions in my imagination. Actually, they were based on what we have experienced previously. At our old house, we had two separate hail storms where all the siding had to be replaced. The total was about $17K. Thank the Lord for insurance! For everyone’s sake, I think damaging hail could be a no-show this year in Nebraska and other areas that usually get hit with bad hail storms.
As the boy has entered our home now, I’m cutting this short today. Stay safe. Hydrate. Be kind to each other. Right now, the Babe and I are going to do the grandparent thing, you know. Color and go get ice cream. It has to be done and it’s a perfect day for it. Enjoy! See you here again tomorrow.
