1. LLB is now an official NJHS member. She and 10 of her friends were inducted last night. The ceremony was lovely - and short. (I like short.)
2. My ginger ale ice rings worked beautifully! And they looked pretty darned good, too!
3. The punch was delicious and everyone enjoyed it. I guess that is what it is all about.
4. I am having the PTO Volunteer Appreciation Pot Luck here on Saturday.
5. We are going to make that punch again because it was so yummy - AND the punch bowl is out and clean so we might as well get some use out of it.
6. I have a few more rooms to clean and a mountain of laundry to get done before then.
7. Mr. was mowing the back 40 when he hit a rock and severely injured the lawn tractor. It took quite a while to get the broken part amputated from the mower deck - it involved a sledge hammer and some well placed wrenches.
8. Now we just have to figure out what parts we need and order them. At one point I thought I might be looking at purchasing a new mower... Alas, that is not the case and this one can be fixed.
9. Although, my dear friend R had a terrific idea - get two mowers! Then you'd have one for each kid. They can both go out and mow! I do LOVE that idea!! It would get done faster and they'd both be busy for a couple of hours.
10. Heck, once they got really good at mowing, I could rent them out!!!
11. Somehow, I don't think they are going to go for that...
12. When I came home from dropping LLB at the bus, there was a really fat squirrel sitting in the driveway. I slowed down... He just sat there looking at my car. I stopped. He didn't move. I crept forward. I didn't want to kill a squirrel in my own driveway!!! He waddled to the nearest tree and climbed up about 2 feet. He stopped and looked right at me as if to say, "Umm... sorry... I forgot to move."
13. Zeb and I are off for a walk. It's my treat for doing chores today.
