September 19 2011

            Up early this morning and off to the grandson’s to watch the ‘greats’ before they were off to school.  C. was in a pleasant mood this morning.  She was concerned when she got to school and remembered that her ‘silver shoes’ were still at her dad’s house.  Since mom’s boyfriend was picking her up from school and taking her to their place, she would not be able to get her shoes.  She was afraid that mom would “freak out” about the shoes.  I told her that great-grandma Ella would bring them back to her.  Ella did not take the shoes to the school but put them in C’s little sister, L’s, backpack.  I hope that C. doesn’t obsess about them all day.
            We had L. for about 5 hours before taking her to preschool.  She was not happy about having C’s shoes in her backpack; saying, “They are not mine!”  We explained that mommy wanted C’s shoes in her backpack.  I hope that she does not dump them out at school.  She is a hard headed little girl.  She informed Ella and I this morning that she is a grown up now.  And really, it’s hard to argue that she isn’t because she is way to mature for three-years old!
            We stopped at KFC for lunch before coming home.
            Today has been a nice sunny break from the grayness of the last several days.  The daytime high is supposed to be in the upper 70’s or lower 80’s.  That is a nice break from the highs in the 50’s and 60’s also.  For the last several days I’ve had the awnings put away over the patio and the windows.  We needed as much sunshine as we could get through the windows.  Well, today when we got home, I put them back out to cut down on the solar heating of the trailer.
            We haven’t heard anything from Autorama about when we will get the new trailer.  We are starting to get antsy about switching trailers.  I really want to get it done this week while the weather is supposed to be good.

September 18 2011

            I just re-read the post from a year ago.  It made me smile because it told of taking our (then) two year old great granddaughter to an RV show and how much she enjoyed it – much to my surprise.  We did not go to the RV show this year and great granddaughter was in preschool so she could not have gone with us.
            This being Sunday, Ella was scheduled to work from 8 to 2.  I went to Sunday school and church and then stopped on the way home to pick up some pizza.  I took the pizza over to the clubhouse and we ate lunch together.  About 1 her relief showed up.  His wife and told him that he needed to be there at 1.  So Ella came home an hour early.
            This was another gray day with constant sprinkle of rain.  So we lie on the bed and read the Sunday paper and took a nap.  Slow raining and gray days are great for napping.
            While I was at church this morning I picked up a CD of the service I preached yesterday.  I listened to part of it on the way home in the truck.  After my nap I tried to play it on the computer.  Windows Media Player would show that there was an audio CD in the player but would do nothing with it.  I tried playing, copying and everything that I could think of.  Nothing worked.  I was finally able to play it using a different player but was unable to copy it to the computer.  Bummer!  I wanted to load it from the CD to the computer so that I could move it from the computer to my Droid X Smartphone.
            I just looked up from typing and notice Ella sitting in the near-dark cutting out coupons.  I asked if it wouldn’t be easier if she could see.  She said she had thought about it.  Then she turned on a light.
            This has been a nice day of rest.  Thank you, Lord.
