Quiet Saturday and G's Busy Schedule

Pre-Teen kids have a busier social life than I do!!  G has plans for the zoo to celebrate her friend's bday, a trip to another friend's grandparents, car wash for church, church youth meeting, and up coming bake sale.  Plus she may want to go to VBS at a church that is not our own but one that will take kids who have finished 6th grade.  On top of all that she has youth trip coming up and attempting to make money on the internet with apps.  And we have had tears over her instagram account.  It is so very difficult to keep children protected.  It takes very little effort to pull up such inappropriate photos on instagram.  Why do people post such filth?

Then there is her personal favorite activity of irritating me by over and over asking for money and/or opportunity to make money or by proclaiming "I'm bored".  I offered to let her mow the yard today but then there was a short rain shower that nixed that idea.  It was short but very heavy.  Maybe she can mow tomorrow before youth group.

First gladiola of the summer, oh so pretty


First sunflower of the summer but it isn't a giant though it came from a giant plant that re-seeded itself

And finally the fish have made friends. Henry II has decided to let Perry the Plady live.

No other news on the horizon.  Last week felt so long because of being off Monday.  Hopefully, it won't be so this week.  I am still thankful for a job especially after the recent jobs numbers.  This will be a very interesting political summer to watch.

My mother is still going downhill but she is not yet bedridden.  She still gets up, gets dressed, eats, watches TV and attempts to hold conversations sometimes.  She looks at magazines and watches the birds. Dad has 4 bird feeders in his yard located where my mom can see them from her normal chair in the den.  I don't think she is able to read anymore.  Processing the words is too difficult, and I am not sure she even tries anymore.

Off to fix supper and complete my Bible study for Sunday School.
