Just A Great Day

18 May 2009
The weather today has been great, hovering in the mid 70s all day long. Just a beautiful day to be outside! Dan was off today and we really enjoyed the day, puttering around together.

Dan has been working on what we laughingly call our salsa garden. We cleaned out all the neglected flower beds that run along side the house and planted jalapenos. In the larger flower bed across the sidewalk we are planting tomatoes, garlic, and onions. Throw in the cilantro from my herb garden and we will be good to go!

After I picked Ashley up from school we stopped by the library and I finally managed to check out a copy of New Moon. I am so excited and cannot wait to read it! I've been trying to find it in stock at the library for months! I am so glad I just happened to pop in today.

Then it was ion to DQ for happy hour. From 3 to 5 you can choose from a large variety of treats for .99 each. This is the only time we buy Blizzards since we can get four for just a bit more than one normally costs. I love a great deal! We were all happy to have this rare treat, we hadn't splurged in months!

Tristen came home with the perfect attendance award today. I am so proud of him! It's a first for him and I am just thrilled. I am also proud that I managed to keep the kid from getting sick for a whole school year! Yippee!

Summer break is right around the corner. In fact, Ashley's last day of school is Wednesday. I am sure she will be telling me how bored she is by the end of the week! I am working on a plan to keep the kiddos busy and entertained all summer. Any input you have would be great!

So, it was just a really great day! I am so glad my family got to spend a little extra time together. It isn't often we slow down enough to just enjoy each other's company. It is such a blessing to be with the ones you love!

Wow! Tristen just walked in with a pallet of 8 loaves of bread! Our wonderful,l kind neighbor sent them over. We are so blessed to have truly wonderful neighbors. It makes life so nice when you all get along really well.

How was your Monday?

Glad to see that you know that there's a difference between cents and dollar symbols. As you know math is my thing. It irks me to death to see someone not know that you don't use a decimal with a cents symbol or name. Check out your local cleaners. They offer to clean shirt for .99 cents. I've always wanted to go in and have 100 shirts cleaned for 99 cents. Could you demand they do this or sue them for truth in advertising?
