Dad didn't have the temple, as it is closed for two weeks, so he went with me to Treasures to pick up the fountain bowl I was going to use to do my fairy garden on the short stump in the front.
On Wednesday I had the day off, and stayed home to do more painting for flea.o.logy. We had our first Single Young Adult meeting that night, but Dad had to take a load of peanut butter to Saint George, and I went to the meeting alone. Its going to be a great calling, and one I believe in too!! Not that I don't believe in any of the other callings I have (this one makes 5) Its about helping to keep track of kids as they graduate from High School, and dive into life!!
After my meeting I ran and got plants and dirts for the fairy garden.
Then when Dad got home, we had a comfy, cozy 'read and doze' in our chairs. Yep, that's it, its the old folks at home. :-)
BTW, my pallet flag sold that day too, so I took it to work on Thursday and the lady who bought it picked it up there. About 5:15 Dad dropped off Eva, as we were to make my fairy garden that night, and took Scott to go fishing up at Payson lakes.
Scott was very excited when he caught the first of the three fish they brought home later.
When the Scotts got home with the fish we cooked them, then covered them, and went out to shoot off fireworks in the driveway.
Eva wanted to take home some poppers, so I told her if she could eat a whole fish by herself she could take a whole box of poppers home. She had previously declared she would only eat a tiny bit of fish. As it turns out the trout, being so fresh, was delicious, and Eva did indeed eat the whole fish ... Big Scott had his own fish too, and J. Scott and I shared the third.
On Friday, Dad was up early and off to the 5 K in Provo with Trevor and Davin, so I took the kids home on my way to work, again. Don't they all look great in their running duds?
Unbelievably I also worked on Saturday. Dad worked on some projects for flea.o.logy while I was gone. When I got home we had dinner then got a decent, for a change, movie from Red Box and watched it.
After church and a short nap, I had Dad help me carry out chairs and a table to get ready for the Mad Hatter Tea Party I was having the next day. The charity workshop part of our meeting started at 10 A.M., and I knew that this was the only way to be ready.
So that was it for our week. I managed to keep busy, with the four work days, but we were so glad we thought to do the fairy garden/ fishing date night, especially since we had no real fourth of July celebration. Dad is quite excited to be fishing again ... so who knows what the summer will bring that way.
