We now resume our regular programming...

As if life were ever normal around here.

At any rate, this is what we're doing today.

Kerry is out at the church. They've been waiting for a break in the weather to tear off part of the roof on what my boys fondly call the cookie room, (probably better known as the fellowship hall), and re-roof it - connecting it to the new addition.

In our part of the world getting two consecutive rainless days in the spring is somewhat iffy, so they're going to "make hay" as fast as they can.

The boys are up at Grandpa and Grandma's for a PTO day. I had prepared them for the possibility of rescheduling, but G and G said to go ahead and bring them :0)

Dad is doing fine. Hallelujah again! I had discussed with the boys his need to take it easy for a few days, and the probable difficulty (frustration) he'll have with this. They arrived and Tate promptly announced, "Grandpa, you're under house arrest!" And then they went downstairs and filled the wood-box.

True to form, Dad sent an email around to his friends, adding a post-script which said something like, "I'm not to lift anything heavier than 10 pounds, to avoid opening the incision in my femoral artery. My nightly bowl of ice cream is now off limits."

I think he's recovering just fine. *eyes roll*

And I am sitting home, in an uncharacteristically quiet house, trying to drag my eyes away from the sunshine outside and get my bills paid.

Hope you're having more fun than I am ;-P

So glad to know your Dad is doing well! I'll continue to keep all of you in my prayers!

I always enjoy perusing your blog, taking in a dose of your wit and optimism. I must add you to my blog roll ~ and weed out a few friends who seem to have fallen off the bandwagon. My own blogging (reading others and posting my photos) tends to run in fits and spurts, but I like to go down my blog roll now and then and peek into people's lives. : )

Glad to have you peeking, Colleen :0) I like to see what is going through my friends' brains too.
