LilyFestre Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House (1682* d) RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House 17 Jun 18


Oh Maggie.....I don't know how you stand the heat there.

Yesterday was an annual festival in my hometown and they always have a 2 hour parade. I marched in it for the first 18 years of my life, avoided it like the plague when I lived there as an adult but now we all go because Jeremiah loves the parade. It's ok I suppose...just not my thing. Anyway, we went yesterday and we were there for about 5 hours with the parking, craft fair, visiting old friend (love that part), the actual parade and then getting out of town....it was 92 degrees outside. Ick. Just ICK. I hate the heat. I used to live in Atlanta and the heat there was manageable because I was inside most of the time and EVERYWHERE had AC. However, you often talk about gardening and I just don't know how you stand it. It was the second key factor in us not following Pete's lab to Texas. I suppose you adjust after a time but ugh.....

The fridge has been cleaned out this morning, dishes are done, Jeremiah *helped* make a breakfast in honor of Pete for Father's Day (he actually did a great job!), the car is almost cleaned out and now I'm on to getting things ready for the work week. Laundry is going too, floors are swept......neverending. :) I'm happy to be home and be puttering. I thought we'd go fishing later today but Pete and I are tired and need today to recoup....so we'll go out for milkshakes later (there's a place nearby that makes THE best coffee milkshakes) and plan a full day of picnic and fishing activity for next week. The following week, we are joining a bunch of people to go to the races. I am not a racing fan, I don't understand the fascination of watching cars go around and around and I don't like the noise...however...I haven't not been in a very LONG time (I think I was 8 the last time I went) and the race track bathrooms were super disgusting....you had to squat over a board with a hole in it....I'm SURE things have changed in the last 40 years...LOL....and my entire family wants to go so I'm going to be a sport and give it a try. I'll be taking earplugs and a book for just in case.....anyway...we'll going to roll all that into a Father's Day celebration for Pete. He's such a fantastic Dad to Jeremiah....his patience and sense of humor, not to mention love...well...he's just an amazing Daddy...he just IS!

Happy Father's Day Peoples!

Michelle
