Today is the 236th birthday of the US Army! It’s also Flag Day!
And Happy Birthday to our flag!
SuperSoldier also informed me that today is the day they say ‘good bye’ to the black beret for “everyone”
and ‘hello, again’ to the patrol cap! I, for one, am glad for it.
The summer is slowly coming along. The kids are still finishing up school work. *sigh* I’ve gotten next year’s lesson plans for MilkyWhite completed and I’ve (barely) started on TheMadHatter’s.
TheMadHatter is really enjoying working for the W family. She babysits 2 – 3 times a week for them.
MilkyWhite is looking for something to do. I have offered/suggested things for her, but they are not the “it” she is looking for. The theater is not having any workshops this summer (only Missoula, which my kids don’t care for) so we’re just not finding “it”.
TheBoy has an 8ft pool on the porch that he is enjoying daily, but that’s about it for him, too.
Chief spent the weekend getting our sprinkler system fixed. It’s not 100% yet as he needs to replace the actual sprinkler heads, but it is better than nothing. Poor guy, though. Weekend of hard work leading into a week of hard work.
Me? I’m still knitting as often as I can. I’m working on a sock just now. (i’m about 25% of the way done with another Christmas sweater, but it’s boring work, so I put it down in favor of the socks for a little while.)
On My iPod!
I downloaded a new book yesterday. It’s another Youth Fiction title. So far, so good, though getting introduced to all of the characters is taking quite a while. I think I’ve only “met” 4 of the 7 main characters so far in about 3 hours of listening (which takes more “actual time” as I have to rewind because of the normal interruptions during the day.) The title of the book is Curse of the Spider King: The Berinfell Prophecies Series – Book One This is a series, so if I continue to enjoy it, I will purchase the other books, but what then? (The reason I mainly choose youth fiction is that there is usually no bad language and most of the time the moral situations are not vile or raunchy. I just don’t enjoy foul language or “adult” situations.)
I’m starting to get a bit giddy again! We’re halfway through June already! In just a couple of months, the preseason will start! w00t!
If I liked ice cream, I’d be all over this stuff!
Well, if I could get it in Texas, anyway!
