It’s been another scorcher here in Witch Falls on the weather front; while fairly uneventful and very busy.
The last two don’t seem to go together, but I really don’t have much to report since my last update this morning. Breakfast was followed by chores around the house and some family business work; the Malloys arrived by a bit after ten; Terry headed straight off to his first meeting; and then I was on kid control for the rest of the day. Michael worked at the Inn today because we’ll be in Crystal Springs for the next two days, and while he did spend his break time with me this afternoon and came over after the dinner rush for a couple of hours this evening; he also just helped out with the kid-rated entertainment. All of that play time with Ethan, Ehlana, Valerie, and Marcus was a blast, and we had bonus kid fun for the few hours around dinnertime with my cousins while they were at our house with their parents, grandma, and grandpa; but I’m also wiped out from the heat and non-stop action.
That’s why I’m in bed and writing this within a half-hour of saying goodnight to Michael after we finished getting Ethan, Ehlana, and Valerie tucked in for the night. We’ll be leaving for the city right after breakfast; and I want to get the extra sleep tonight because the next two days are going to be just as busy and more fun of the teen, shopping, and wedding varieties instead of geared toward the baby-to-pre-school crowd. Add in a five-star sleepover; and I am so looking forward to our impending adventures in the city!
While that’s pretty much it for my day; I’ll also add a couple of family and friends notes. Aunt Leanne and Angela had fun comparing babies and baby stories; Brianna was happy to get a lot of attention from everyone; and Terry is sure that the bridge project will be ready to begin construction on time in September. It’s a comparatively small project for him, but I’m sure that he’s taking extra care with it; since it’s personal for him – just as designing Aunt Grace’s house was personal for Uncle Blaine.
One of those points don’t go with the others, but babies and bridges were two of the top family and friends topics today; and I preferred those topics a lot over others that did get some minor mention – like current events in Europe and elsewhere. Don’t worry – I’m not going there. If you’re that bored as you read this to find out the latest geo-political idiocy of the day; feel free to do an archive search for today’s date and read all about it.
I definitely don’t want to head off to dreamland thinking about that kind of thing, so I’m going to wrap this up; think about Michael and me; and get some sleep!
Until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
