My husband’s plans for the day were destroyed by rain. It rained steadily almost all day so he had to find indoor things to do instead of going out to do his yard jobs. Jasper was not sorry—he got to sleep in! And we have reached that time of year when rain is always welcome.
I had to pick up a few things at Walmart so I went in the morning in the rain when it was not crowded at all. I spent most of the day just working through my do-do list. I checked quite a few things off, but there are plenty left!
One of the things I did was to make a batch of oversized omelet muffins that Jasper can heat up for breakfast next week. He eats breakfast at 5:00 a.m.—and much as I love him, I’m not going to get up at that hour and make him a hot breakfast. He often makes his own, but I thought he’d like something nice that he doesn’t have to remember how to cook that early in the morning.
I also measured him today. Lately I have gotten several questions about how tall he is. Not as tall as I thought, as it turns out. He is only 6’2¼” at this point. I know he is already 18, but I think he still has some growing to do. After all, he wears size 16 shoes and has been a late bloomer all along. He may yet overtake one or both of his big brothers.
I prewashed some fabric in hopes that I might be able to squeeze some sewing into this coming week. I’ll only be teaching Story Quest and knitting! And trying to catch up on a million other things . . .
