LMW has made it a regular event to play in the water. I should say play with the water. He doesn't really like it splashing up in his face or on his body if the water is cold, but he loves to carry the hose around and water everything in sight. His spaceship, his motorized car, his Nanna.....ahem.
I've done a bit of sewing, getting shower gifts and such done, and am now about to finish up a table topper and matching place mats for myself. I also have been cutting out squares for a summer quilt I'm going to begin. I'm going to take my long, sweet time with it and may even do the piecing by hand. I haven't made up my mind, but I'm leaning toward that. It will take a while, but it will give me something constructive to do while Mr. BLines watches Storage Wars and the History Channel. *grin*
Another lake trip is in the works, planned for the 30th if nothing prevents it, and we are all looking forward to that. A lot of folks I talk with are planning beach trips this summer and I have to admit I envy them.
Last night, the Mr. and I met with some dear friends for an unbelievable meal of fresh vegetables and grilled chicken and pork. I had a real problem keeping control of my eating with all that good food, and especially when our hostess began cutting her home made apple pie that was to. die. for. And home made ice cream....shut my mouth!
I also got to visit with an old friend from junior high that I dearly love. We haven't seen each other since we grew up and married. What a joy that was!! We are hoping to stay in touch and see each other more often now.
I was thinking how hard it is to keep up with friends when you are raising your family and just trying to take care of them and get through it all. We get derailed by stress and the business of life and friendships fall by the way side. Now that we are empty nesters, we are keen on rejuvenating old friendships and excited to see people we lost touch with.
So that is the end of this post. No pictures to share. Just words wandering around. Enjoy your Sabbath afternoon.
