why Joe mows the grass a bit at a time during the week. Since he is out of town it's my job to keep up with the mowing. At least 3, maybe 4 acres to mow. So I did what Joe does and watched the weather to see when it will be nice and when it will rain. I quickly discovered that Sunday was the day to mow it ALL since this week will be filled with lots of thunderstorms. So I spend the day yesterday mowing the entire yard. It was a nice day, a bit hot but not bad. I started at 10:30am and finished at 4pm. I didn't mind though since it got me outside and also made me appreciate what Joe does each and every week. Annie came out with me a few times and ran along, played, laid down in shade and just generally did her own thing. We can't let Sophie out while mowing because she thinks it is fun to bark and run along and in front of the mower.
Greg came over and proved to be most helpful around the house. We had green beans to pick, garbage to take up the hill and he was glad to help. He ate dinner with us (taco salad mmmmmmmmmmm) and we took him home afterwards. I sent a bag of chicken salad, tomatoes and peaches with him.
Stephanie received a call from a girlfriend about 8:45 last night inviting her to an outing with her family today. Her friend Stacy and her family are going to Bowling Green, Ky today to what sounds like fun. Some kind of underground river. I don't know but summer vacation is quickly winding down so I was glad for her to go. Stacy's mom came to the house and picked her up. They will be back sometime today, late I suspect. I'm sure she will have a good time.
I talked to Joe last night. He is missing everyone of course. While talking to him I said something to Annie and Joe about died. He misses the pups so much. Especially Annie. They are very very close. She misses him too. She follows me or Steph around at home. We are going to get online tonight so he can see everyone, including Annie and Sophie. He told me that Amy said she thought she was going to have to go to the hospital about 1am Sunday morning. She is still having contractions and apparently they were quite frequent. Yesterday Joe and Jeremy got after Amy because she won't stay off of her feet and rest. That of course is not helping to keep her contractions at bay. Joe finally said "what am I doing here anyway? You are supposed to be on bedrest!" She listened, for now anyway.
I should have taken my camera this morning. She sunrise over the pond was so gorgeous. I think I have a picture that I can share though. Yes, here it is. I hope you enjoy your day and remember to be grateful for what we have, not what we wish we had.
