It's a very pretty day.....nothing like we had so far this week. Sunday - Wednesday it was very hot and oh so humid. Thursday it rained off and on (mostly on!) all day.
My son and his family (we all live in the same house) took a short vacation to Washington DC for three days. Ellen and I had some fun on those days since it was so quiet at home :) We did some shopping. On Tuesday we shopped at Michael's then treated ourselves to very good frozen yogurt at Sweet Frog.
As I said, Thursday was a rainy day. I was happy to watch the baby a short while in the morning while his mommy took his brother and sister to school to meet their teachers.
He didn't sleep the entire time mommy was away....
Later my daughter, Marcy, her two daughters, Ellen and I did some shopping.
First we shopped at Joann's. Marcy is recovering her dining room chair seats. We found fabric that we think will work. It was pouring when we left Joann's...TJ Maxx happens to be in the same complex, covered porch walkway to boot. Of course we shopped there!
I took the girls to look at toys while Marcy shopped without distraction.....
They should hire her!
I think I will have to make a trip to TJ Maxx again real soon :) Her birthday....and Christmas....is coming up!
She also saw and really wanted a musical instrument set complete with tambourine and recorder...I would not do that to her poor mommy!! It was a definite NO!
We had fun...I did get wet getting everything in the van. That's ok, I'm not so sweet that I melt :)
So it's now Friday. I'm sitting on my porch enjoying the beautiful day....and a cup of coffee.
Today is grandson Carson's First birthday!
Bless you this fine August Friday!
