My poor neglected blog! I really need to make more time for posting.
First and most importantly, our youngest son turned 21 on Wednesday. My baby is no longer a baby. Okay, so he hasn’t been a baby in some time, but STILL….. We are so proud of the man he has become and I look forward to seeing what is ahead for him.
Here’s a picture of my handsome 21-year-old. I’m his mama. I’m allowed to call him handsome. Andy is the one on the right. The other handsome lug on my left is our oldest son. His birthday is at the end of this month so he’ll get a post of his own then; this is Andy’s post! This picture was taken at the 5K last October. Unfortunately it’s the latest one I have of him. I need to fix that…
Happy 21st birthday, Andy!
I have been walking/jogging again but by myself. My friend and I took a break from walking because we both got very busy, but I started up again because I missed it. This morning’s walk was not very pleasant though. A car hit a deer in the road in front of me and the poor deer was struggling. When I came upon the scene a lady was crying, and I assumed she had hit the deer, but she was another walker that I soon recognized from previous mornings. The driver who hit the deer had driven off, but eventually came back just as everyone was leaving the scene. I can’t understand why they drove off. The sight of the dying deer was very upsetting for all of us and we all felt helpless. A bystander called the police to put it out of its misery, but they took forever to get there and the deer died while we were waiting for the police. After everyone left I continued on my way, but I was crying too. It was really pitiful and sad to watch him struggle and not be able to help him.
Today I walked/ran 4.32 miles.
I took this picture on Thursday morning when I fit in a walk between the rain showers. The sun was just a ball in the sky and only stayed that way long enough for me to take the picture, then disappeared behind clouds again.
We had a yard sale two weeks ago. It was a modest success. We are having another one on 07/25 and we know what we can do differently this time and hopefully it will go better. We have even more stuff to sell this time around. In all we probably have enough stuff here for three or four yard sales, so we are going to space them out as we can access the things to sell them. They are so packed away that we have to get to everything in layers!
No cookie orders lately, and that’s okay because between preparing for the yard sale and working, I’ve been pretty busy.
So that’s my update. Happy Fourth of July to everyone. I hope everyone has a nice holiday and a nice weekend
