Family Announcement

I know, I know — I’ve been post­ing a lot of reviews late­ly. They seemed more inter­est­ing than actu­al updates. Most of my time has been spent doing vol­un­teer work for Grants to You, which is inter­est­ing to do but not to describe.

How­ev­er, I have actu­al NEWS now! My baby girl and her beau are engaged! I swear, it feels like she was just learn­ing to walk last week and now she’s all grown up!

No, there isn’t a date set for the wed­ding yet. I’ll post more when there is one. But for now, I’m very hap­py for my girl and her sweet­heart. There have been lots of tears of joy around here.

I’m spend­ing the next few days with Katie, so I won’t be online much. See y’all at the end of the week! (I’ll try to sched­ule a few blog posts to fill in.)

Family Day

I got to see two of my cousins today! Kim and Lori were in town for the Amer­i­can Idol con­cert, so we had din­ner togeth­er at my par­ents’ place. It was love­ly to see them. We don’t get togeth­er near­ly often enough.

I’m grate­ful for my fam­i­ly!

Plinky asked: What was the best thing about yes­ter­day?

I spent the entire day with my daugh­ter! We had a love­ly time togeth­er. Isn’t she a doll?

Woot! We won!

It looks like the T-SPLOST bill was defeat­ed by a land­slide. I’m so glad! That thing was a total boon­dog­gle. My baby girl and I spent the day togeth­er and one of the very first things we did was go vote against it!

We had a good lunch togeth­er and a frozen yogurt treat. She indulged me, so I final­ly got to go to In Stitch­es, too. They have the most incred­i­ble selec­tion of fibers! I picked up my first Glo­ri­ana silks for a char­i­ty stitch­ing project.

Now I’m exhaust­ed, but hap­py. It was a good day!

Academy Caritas: Free Courses Online

Today’s post at Acad­e­my Car­i­tas lists some free online cours­es that look very good. I’m con­sid­er­ing using some of those to get back into the groove of school until I can go back “for real.”

I’m in a good mood, as I’m at the girl’s place and I got to see Steven today. Hap­py day!

Academy Caritas: Learning to Code, Part 5

Y’all are tired of me doing this, aren’t you? Learn­ing to Code, Part 5.

Well, I had some fun away from the com­put­er when my old­est nephew vis­it­ed today. He’s a non-stop bun­dle of ener­gy! We got the air hock­ey table cleared off for a game. Woof!

And I went to the library and checked out actu­al, phys­i­cal books for the first time in eons, rather than eBooks. That was a trip. I had to learn how to use the self check­out thing all over again. I feel like a lud­dite when that kind of thing hap­pens. I want to shout, “No, I’m not behind the curve, I’m ahead of it!” But the things I need­ed (tech­ni­cal ref­er­ences) were only avail­able from the library on dead trees, so there you have it. I had to lug home many pounds of paper. Hap­py I am to be able to check them out, too, as those books are pricey!

Happy Father’s Day!

I hope it was as won­der­ful for y’all as it was for us.

While Dad­dy was tak­ing a nap, I did a lit­tle work on the site here, con­tin­u­ing the process of migrat­ing things from the old for­mat into Word­Press. It’s going to take more time, but even­tu­al­ly all the pages will be uni­form. Real­ly! If you find any­thing that isn’t work­ing, though, please be patient and leave me a com­ment about it?

The Great Outdoors

Plinky asked, “When was the last time you enjoyed the great out­doors?”

Sea-swim­ming (Medi­um)

Does a sub­ur­ban pool count? Because I was in one today, play­ing with my niece and nephews, chat­ting with my broth­er and sis­ter-in-law and par­ents. It was a love­ly part of our Father’s Day week­end cel­e­bra­tion.

It has been a few years since I went out to any­thing that could be called wilder­ness, but I’d like to do so again, now that I’m get­ting stronger and my aller­gies have improved along with the rest of my health. I haven’t been to a beach (oth­er than the import­ed one at Lake Lanier) in almost 20 years, either. That’s anoth­er thing I’d like to do.
