I woke up with the beginnings of a cold and the idea of a scanner is too much to contemplate right now.
We all made it to church this morning but I had to leave to take Ray home and then come back after the girls. Elcie is back to singing again, at least for now. By the time I got home for the third time (once to take Elcie early, once for us, and once to take Ray home) all I wanted to do was collapse.
Dinner was served on schedule thanks to our local Pizza Hut. I wanted Chinese but was outvoted. They haven't had pizza (except for the frozen variety) for a while and were suffering from pepperoni withdrawl. Poor deprived kids.
Our rain continues and is beginning to worry our growers. It's complicated but evidently if the blossoms remain on the fruit trees, they absorb moisture and cause the fruit to rot eventually. Tomatos are a problem as well.
Welcome to Jo, a Native American mother and granny now living in Utah. As of tonight, she has written her third post and somehow found her way here. She'd probably enjoy a welcome from some of us.
I can't remember if I mentioned that the church is holding a Seder followed by a potluck on Maundy Thursday. We had one (potluck - not Seder of course) on Christmas Eve for the whole community as this will be and it sounds great. I've attended one Seder hosted by a San Francisco friend at his home. A local Rabbi will preside over this one and I'll try very hard to be there with the girls. They know very little about other faiths so this will be a good experience for them.
Rebecca is having problems with the concept of Daylight Saving Time. She thinks if we set our clocks ahead she shouldn't go to school until an hour later (or earlier, she's not sure which). I tried to explain thatonly the clocks changed, not the school schedule and confused her even more. She did like the extra daylight though.
Rochelle and Rebecca went to the nickel arcade with a friend this afternoon. His mother took them, I picked them up. They get there no more than once a month and always have a great time. We don't have anything like a game boy or whatever the latest is so the only video games they see are on the computer. The arcade is fun and quite well run. The first couple of times (at night) I stayed but it seems to be very safe as long as they stay inside. They don't take much money so by an hour they were calling ready to come home.
Elcie doesn't mind not going. She's quite happy with not having sisters nagging.
I'm sitting here trying to decide whether to yawn or sneeze. My body is probably begging for an early night so I will try to make it so.
Talk to you later and I will try for the photos soon.
