It's been a busy week and I haven't had much time for posting or commenting, which I apologize for if you've visited and left a comment and I haven't reciprocated by commenting back on your blogs. I hope to do better when school starts back up.
Joining in with Nancy (A Rural Journal) today though for Random 5 Friday.
1. We had a tiny amount of rain for about 2 days late last week, it was so nice and very refreshing. To bad we didn't get more and the weather has once again jumped back in the upper 90's. Expected to be 95 today which is somewhat cooler then yesterday's 99.
2, Late Saturday night when I went to bed I heard water running in our bathroom but nothing was coming out of the faucet. I woke hubby when I stepped on the carpet and it left a wet foot print. Seems the pipe had come loose and was leaking. Needless to say we had a big mess both in our bedroom and in the basement where water was pouring through the ceiling. Now we have to replace the bedroom carpet and repaint but hey it was old carpeting and the bedroom needs a little sprucing up.
3. Trying to get around this town right now without finding a "Detour" or "Road Closed" sign is getting pretty tough. For years the people have complained about the bad roads and potholes here in town. This summer the city finally listened. Problem is that they decided to repair what seems like all the roads I travel on at once which makes getting around town quite tricky. I hate those Orange Cones!!!
4. Yesterday we started a Women's Bible Study. I'm excited about it but wondering where I'll find time to actually read the study book. It seems like there is always something going on around here and I rarely have a quiet moment to myself anymore. Which leads me to.....
5. So looking forward to school starting. Coleen has kept me busy with her swimming lessons which wrap up next Friday. She gets "bored" after swimming though and wants to play with the neighbor kids who I must say drive me nuts ringing the doorbell every 5 minutes to see if Coleen can play or to tattle on each other or trying to find out if one of their siblings is here. So yes, the school year can't come soon enough for this tired Grandma!
(3 more weeks to go)
