I’m tired; so this is really going to be a micro-update.
Michael and I had fun last night with Rebecca, Lucas, Rowen, and Tim. We stayed up too late; Rowen and Tim went home while Lucas stayed the night in a guest room; and Michael and I had a sofa sleepover after we were left alone to supposedly have a bit of cuddle time before I went home. That would have been more believable if Rebecca hadn’t tossed a blanket over us and told us that she’s see us in the morning; but it worked for me; so I was okay with the non-plan.
Tai Chi by the river was over at my house; breakfast was at Michael’s; and we had fun at church and Sunday school. We didn’t end up getting rain all day, but just one little late-afternoon blast of wet that was here and gone in no time. That didn’t get in the way of my fun because I was working at the Inn by then; but I didn’t work the lunch shift. Instead, I was home for that with about half of our family and some friends; we went for a canoe ride after that; and we were back in time for me to hang out with Michael during his afternoon break. We went swimming; played in the back yard; and had a snack break before I went back to the Inn with Michael.
It was hot out today; so it was hot in the kitchen too. The lack of rain or storms did affect the dinner buffets, but we still had a fairly large crowd – including my family for the late buffet. I missed out on that, and we were very busy in the kitchen anyway; but Michael and I had a lot of fun too. I’ll skip the work news, since there isn’t much except for Jenny’s hot summer romance stories – and they don’t belong in my journal! We got out of the Inn at ten o’clock; I only stopped at Michael’s house to say goodnight to him out on the front porch; and then I came home to get ready for bed starting with some quality Jacuzzi time – once I’d said goodnight to Mom, Dad, Ethan, and Ehlana.
I multi-tasked some family business work while in the tub; finished all of my computer and email checks; and only have this update to finish now that I’m tucked into bed with Mandy. There’s been a lot going on that I haven’t been involved in at all today, but I’m already past this being the micro update that I wanted it to be, and none of that news really affects me at all anyway; so let’s just not go there.
We’re down to days to the holiday weekend, but we’ve got some fun and busy ahead of us before getting there; so let’s wrap up with a quick look ahead. We’ve got a friend’s birthday on Tuesday that’ll be at Quarry Lake; and the big change from previous parties out there is that we’ll be having a camping adventure too. Some of us will need to come back for band and teen praise team practices; but we’ll still be there for most of the fun! We’ll also have chores, work at the Inn, and the next fruit and vegetable boxes orders and deliveries to make; and then we’ll be in for a crazy-busy holiday weekend with lots of work at the Inn and family and friends fun.
With all of that going on; I’m only wondering why I’m not sleeping already to rest up for everything. I don’t have a good answer for that; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
