...and more.Sunday was Sam's 33rd birthday. To give them a break, the boys stayed here overnight Saturday after Kayla and Matt's party. So in the morning this is what I saw on the way out to go to church--all four grandsons sitting on the swing.

Monday I received gifts from friends in Mexico, hand delivered by a church team that returned from there last week--a sweet little angel, and a salt and pepper shaker.
The young lady we supported graduated last summer with high honors. I am so proud of Mary and just wish I could have been there.
Tuesday I was happy to rejoin painting class and also one of the Bible study groups. These are the two books I am working through and enjoying greatly.
Grandson Skye stayed with us most of this week. Wednesday we introduced him to a favorite family card game--Nertz. Here is our running score.
State of the House:
Sunday evening I got together with my neighbor-friend to finalize color choices due the next day. Glenda loves interior decorating and gives me helpful advice. It is so good to talk over these decisions with someone else. Even so, I have been hesitant to go and see the newly painted rooms. What if I don't like what I picked? I did finally venture in.
He is very tired, however that did not stop him from going hunting as soon as deer season opened, early Saturday morning. Stephan was at his stand bright and early as well even though he had a very busy day ahead.
Karen and I enjoyed running a local 5K together this time. My dear DIL stayed with me the whole time which is why I did not walk even once and finally came in 40' 22". Not my best but considering I have sinusitis and a foot that aches, not bad either. I sure hope the axiom is true: Exercise is medicine.
