Day 49

Definitely running out of things to say. Read the captions. The yard folks have just about finished digging out the dirt for the new driveway parking spot, they found and are fixing a pretty hefty leak in the sprinkler system, and the gates are about in around the new patio. The girls' A/C was successfully turned on today (went over 80 outside). Taco Bell for lunch and week-in-review for dinner. Today's movies: My Best Friend's Wedding and The Ugly Truth.

Look what Tracy got on the way home from CostCo... Nothing Bundt Cakes!

TimberCreek Kids packets are just about done. Delivery is Saturday.

Harry Potter Labyrinth. Matteo was his opponent.

Online school.

More online school with a Nana assist.

Fina made ice cream sandwiches with these last night.

This was hysterical. Watched David run around the house
getting scavenger hunt items for his online class session.

Matteo playing an online game with a friend in California.

Day 48

More masks. More math. More reading. More eating. More TV. More TimberCreek Kids packets. More games. Lots of Pokemon. A little more exercise. More playing with the foster baby. More playing with Papa's swimming pool hat. Oh wait, that last one is new. Oh, and Jake's Design is back to finish up the yard project(s). Got the A/C ready to run for the girls upper level; it's supposed to be in the 80s next day or so! The Club family meal was salmon tonight, so Lynn and Matt jumped on that, Tracy and Jamie had salads. Today's movies: The Princess Diaries (1 and 2).

Tracy joined in the online Pilates, for a moment.

Day 47

Back to school! We're now into outside watering pretty heavily as it's getting much warmer but not warm enough to turn the sprinklers on yet. Two SITW tomato plants went to a new home, which happened to be just down the street in our same neighborhood. Tracy, Lynn, and Fina continue prepping the TimberCreek Kids packets for May; gotta be delivered before this Sunday. Chick-fil-A for dinner, a kid favorite (adults like it, too). Today's movies: Little Giants, Hercules, Enchanted, and National Treasure.


Note the hair is colorful, too!

Off to bed.

Day 46

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. It felt normally abnormal, or abnormally normal, or... Nothing noteworthy happened today. Well, maybe some things... The definition of noteworthy changes under certain circumstances. We got re-potting stuff for the SITW tomato plants. We cooked meals, primarily fajitas for dinner. Tracy finished a puzzle and packed it away for return to the friend who swapped puzzles with us. Tracy, Lynn, and Fina worked much of the day on preparing May packets for TimberCreek Church Kids. They'll be delivering to nearly 60 families. One of the items in the package will be homemade slime; oh boy! Mask production continues. Lots of game playing by the kids of recently acquired stuff (Easter). At least that's what we think they're doing. Oh, and we continued watering the lawn now and then. Tonight's TV was Community.

Belated Easter gift!

Lexi loves these things, so Fina got her some more.

Homemade slime.

Day 45

AJ's birthday celebration continued after "going to" church this morning. Pinata! All the pinata photos start here. What a hoot, lots of smiling faces. Matt's breakfast burritos got us going for the day. Jamie and Lynn took a walk around the neighborhood with Sandy. We also tried to Zoom with Vickie and friends for a virtual game night, but had issues connecting with the meeting. Fina was super bored today; look what she did to her parents' room. Dinner was prime rib from the Club. Tonight's movie: Son-in-Law.

Fina gift wrapped everything in sight! Hard to watch TV that way.
Or enjoy a photo on the wall. Or set the alarm clock.
Oh wait, who needs an alarm clock?

Day 44

We celebrated AJ's birthday today! All the party pics of that are here. Domino's Pizza for dinner, AJ's fave. Jamie got the new ceiling lights installed for the game table downstairs. Matt did a lot of yard watering. Tonight's movies were Get Him to the Greek and Extraction.

Finally Tracy gets a chance to wear outside the hat her friend gave her.
