If we were having coffee, I think I would suggest we go outside. We can sit in the front porch. It’s covered and enclosed so, while it is quite warm out, there’s also a very nice breeze that would let us enjoy our drinks in the fresh outdoors.
I’m so glad that April is over. I’m ready for sunny days and lots of outdoors time. Aren’t you? I sure am and so are Anderson and Spencer who love running around outside but don’t get to when it’s raining or cold. Last night Tina came over to bring me some things she picked up for me at Costco and the boys wanted to stay. It was still light out and early enough so we played out front. I have a big bin of sidewalk chalk so they drew all over the driveway and the front. The little one got my bin of love rocks and arranged them all over the front yard. He took his time and did each one very carefully. I was impressed. He’s only just turned 3. Then they got the box of Halloween decorations out and played with the 3 foot plastic skeletons in the yard. Of course I have to stay out there with them so we also got out the two chairs we never use and sat out there waiting for their mom to come get them. All in all, it was a very nice couple of hours outside.
Today is a quiet day, I think. I slept in. Then sat up and got caught up on about 30 games of Words With Friends. That took about an hour because some of the ladies I was playing with were online so by the time I finished all my turns, it was my turn again with some ot them. And I am going to dye my hair at some point but I’m not in a hurry. It’s a me day. I don’t get the boys today so I am being lazy for as long as I can. Then I will dye my hair and have some lunch and I want to fix an area here so that I can do the home schooling with Anderson here at my house where there are fewer distractions. He has toys here so when we take breaks, he will have something to do. I’ve also loaded some of the same websites that we use for the home schooling onto his Kindle Fire. They are videos he really likes to watch and learn from so they are on there and now maybe he’ll also learn while taking a break! It’s a website called Jr. Brainpop in case you have little ones that might like it. We use it for the science videos. They’re pretty engaging with a little girl that narrates and a cute robot as her sidekick.
I started watching the second season of Grace and Frankie last night. I enjoyed the first season so I am looking forward to watching the entire second season later tonight. It’s a Netflix original and stars Jane Fonda and Lilly Tomlin as the female leads with Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen as the male leads. It’s good to see a show with older people as the main characters. The premise is that the men are law partners and the women are their wives who don’t like each other but are thrown together by their husbands who always have to do things together, like holidays and vacations. Their kids have grown up together too. One couple has two grown daughters and the other two grown sons. In the first episode of the first season we find out, along with their wives, that the two men are actually lovers and are divorcing their wives to marry each other. It’s a comedy so there are some very poignant moments as we feel their pain with some laughter involved. I won’t tell you more. You’ll have to check it out. It’s on Netflix.
I also want to go back to the last book on my Kindle and finish that. I think I am about 40% but haven’t picked it up since February! I will finish it this week and get on to some more fabulous books!
And of course, I continue watching my phone for word that my daughter-in-law has gone into labor. No news yet. Doctor says all is ready. He has dropped and she has stopped working. So now the “fun” of waiting is in earnest. The due date is not until the 18th so we have time but we’re watching for him now!
That’s about it on my end. Tell me about you! What are you up to? Please do tell.
