Friday was an odd day. I was off work, just home doing laundry and other chores. It had been a blazing hot week, and Friday was hot too...but then all of a sudden there was this enormous cloud burst. The rain was torrential, and then it began to hail! It was so loud...very dramatic weather. The air felt a bit cooler while it was raining, but it stopped just as suddenly as it had started and got very hot again. Plus of course, even more humid. I just sat on my couch with the door open, watching Fantastic Mr. Fox and the weather, both. Bonus, got in a long phone convo. with my DR.
Saturday I worked and had my big Fall Harvest Fun program. There were crafts, which the kids here seem to really enjoy. We also did a couple of stories and songs and talked about things that happen in Fall.
The program was very well attended...we had a door count of 111. I was happy to have such a great turnout. Here is a crowd shot of people attacking the craft tables :-) While the kids were working, I went around telling riddles. I gave them stickers for guessing the right answer. Remember, kids will do just about anything for a sticker. haha! Use your power wisely!
After work I had dinner with Social Animal, Handsome Lad, Kick Back Dude and the kids. Kick Back Dude and Princess Diva have separated, so KBD has been staying at his dad's. He had the kids all weekend, which was not easy at the house, but for now it is the way it has to be.
Sunday was a very quiet day for me. I slept in a bit, which was heaven. Girlie Girl had to work and the boys were busy, so I just sat around and caught up a little on my DVR'd stuff. All that fab fall television! I also had another nice long talk with DR. In theory, we are about 1/3 of the way through this year of being apart. Yeah, I am not so sure of that, but until I hear otherwise, I am thinking in those terms. I miss him so, but I am enjoying the gift of really, really talking to one another. You know how it is when you are with someone....of course, you talk, but days go by where it is good to just be quiet together. Without that option of physical comfort, if we want to interact and stay connected, we have to talk to each other! So, I'm choosing to appreciate that part of being apart.
Anyway...here we are facing another week, moving into October and the start of the Silly Season (which I am vowing not to let make me crazy this year!) Have a great week ahead!
