We got a bit more toilet paper this week. There are four adults here, so we needed to be sure we have enough for a bit. My guys ran errands this week; we were thinking they’d get it done quicker than Tiffany and I. However, I’m glad to report that I am not as slow as I thought I was.
The left about 7:30 am and didn’t make it back home until about 1:00pm, about 1.5 hours of that is travel time though. That is at best as long as Tiffany and I make the run but could have even been longer. As it was, they had to call home several times for verification on items. I didn’t realize when they left that Sean had not yet been inside WinCo, although Michael did go with me last week, so he at least had some familiarity with the store.
Then of course, there was the problem with things being sold out at one store and having to look for them at the next store and finally settling on something else. We will get by and do fine.
We have had an influx of ants again! Ugh! Thankfully they are the little ones but they are still quite annoying! They run all over the counter a couple at a time. And now, as I’m typing this I have just killed two that have hitchhiked on my shirt as I was washing dishes or something.
We have had sooooo much rain our mud puddles have puddles! It’s ridiculous! Michael and Sean had to go the long way around to get to town for groceries. Trust me, if they hadn’t needed to go, they wouldn’t have.
Tiffany planted some seeds in some pots and hanging baskets. She set them outside this week and they ended up with over an inch of water sitting on top of the surface of the soil. I hope the seeds didn’t get washed away when they poured off that excess water.
The frogs have really turned up their singing. It is quite loud. I mean, I like a little ambient noise and at least they are not cicadas, but enough is enough.
I’ve read the next two books in The Invisible Library series. I’m still enjoying it but it would not be for everyone. However, I believe my daughter-in-love would enjoy them. They have fae, werewolves, and dragons in them. This is the first time I’ve read books with fae in them. I can see how it adds to the story. I’m really liking the series though. Tiffany is a little bit behind me in her reading of the series but is beginning to catch up.
I finished the Caves of Steel book by Isaac Asimov last week. I’ve requested the next one in that series on my kindle paperwhite. I’ve already gotten it but haven’t started reading it yet. I’m interested to see where it goes.
If you saw our video over on our youtube channel last weekend, then you know that I picked up the book, The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey. I had no idea this book was going where it is going. It is about a virus/parasite outbreak. It has a lot of cursing in it and if I weren’t so curious as to how this crazy thing ends, I’d have put it down because of the cursing. Thankfully I am able to skip those words as I read most of the time.
I really don’t like reading books with a lot of cursing in them because I come away feeling a little bit dirty. At least there hasn’t been any sex in it. I’m on page 253 of 403, so about 2/3 of the way through it. I also did not realize it was a thriller. It was in the sci-fi section. I’m finding that I don’t mind reading thrillers. It seems to me that Ted Dekker writes thrillers too.
Well, I need to go see if my fruit trees need to be covered up to protect them from a frost or not. I had heard that it could get below freezing tonight. I’d really love to have some peaches and plums this year.
I hope you have a great weekend. Enjoy being at home. Work on something that you’ve not had the time to do, be it project, craft, hobby, puzzle, movie, or read a book.
Until next time, God bless,
