What a beautiful week we had! I guess that helped make up for all the rain. I enjoyed sitting out on the deck again. We’re back in the oven again today – but that’s a little more normal than running my car heater on the way to work like I did this past week. And that’s enough talk about the weather – for now.

It was Pentecost Sunday at church. As I said on Facebook, the paradigm of church might be changing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still gather together to listen to God’s still speaking voice. And isn’t that a glorious arrangement on the altar?
Dr. M took a picture of the neighbor’s driveway. I guess it was a glorious week for me since I didn’t have to contend with this type of damage – yikes!

Flowers after the rain.
I got home from Monthly Monday Mexican night to a very exciting shipment! I’ve been salivating over Scheepjes yarn for a while & I finally found an excuse to order some. Also pictured, the rice heart from my meal. Awww.

Did I mention that the weather was fabulous? Dr. M did some deck sitting.
I started my project!

Dr. M quickly decided that hooking up the trailer to borrow his dad’s mower was not going to work for us after he has back surgery (and really he shouldn’t be doing stuff like that now). So he found this cute used mower that will be my baby. Can’t wait to try Little Red Riding Good out!

Here is a long boring story about how I got my new work nickname. I wore this to work & my boss commented that it was a nice suit & she hoped I didn’t have a job interview. I said that I thought this suit was a little casual for job interviews & that I thought of it as my Miami Vice look (and that in fact it probably went back to that era). After she & my coworker stopped laughing they decided that my new nickname is Miami. (My old nickname was Eagle Eye because I have a really irritating habit of noticing misspellings & such. Really. Irritating.)
The Roy has a cone of shame – we’re not sure why – but it doesn’t stop him from getting good scritches!

There is a fabulous bank of daylilies on our main road. Dr. M was able to get a pretty good picture of them.

We spent some time with Dr. M’s Pop. Dr. M took me to the grocery store to show me what kinds of things he gets his dad – this will be my job while he’s recuperating. Not pictured: about forty eleven cans of cat food.
Making progress! One of these is done, but the other two have a ways to go yet.
I spent today (Father's Day!) hanging out with my dad (Mall walking! Eating!), and I’ve been working on this post “talking” to you guys. I think I might be extroverted out. Sorry Dr. M – no more communicating today. I shall silently make the beds with our clean sheets & then I shall silently crochet & then I shall silently go to bed about an hour early. Good night.
