Fabulous (Baseball) Friday!

Woo Hoo! Our 9U boys won both of their games today! The first game at 8 a.m. was a perfect setting, we faced the sun but it wasn’t too bad at all. The early hour was so nice, cooler than it would have been at noon. For the noon game, we were able to sit in the shade under some nice trees, and there was a cooling breeze. Perfect. The boys were so hot, but the coaches and umps were good about time outs for water breaks. Everyone was healthy and happy at the end, since they won both games. Tomorrow, they play at 1:30 p.m., so it’ll be hotter. We’ll hydrate accordingly, and be ready for the day.

And for right now, we’re so grateful we replaced our air conditioning unit a couple of years ago. The unit was shot, and the furnace had rust in it. The humidifier somehow leaked and the water dripped into the inside of the unit. They just don’t make them like they used to. I think in my lifetime, I’ve put at least five furnace/ac units into houses. The first one converted from an old oil furnace to a gas furnace. The a/c followed the next summer I think. Long time ago!

Next week, I’m digging back into the children’s book and making changes. I have some great suggestions from both a friend in the business and my illustrator Jordan. It should take me a week to make the decisions what to cut out, what to change, and better placement of the illustrations. I didn’t realize I shouldn’t alter the photos by enlarging or shrinking. Now I know. I’m so glad to be this far along. I didn’t make my first deadline, Gavin’s birthday on June 30. I will make the next one.

It’s been a great day. I hope yours was too. Right now, I’ve a headache from the heat. Onto hydration, Tylenol, and rest. Have a great evening. It’s so nice to be home, in the cooled air, with the Babe and Pups. See you tomorrow!
