Anyway - we had a few fun days with Matt and Steven. I left them with zombies and cinnamon rolls and groceries. They gave me lovely memories of singing "I love the Lord" with their roommates, they're singing it in church today. Steven and Matt are rooming together which is challenging but they're getting along pretty well. Johnny stayed with them for the two nights we were there - they don't sleep much - I guess that's college life.
It was fun being in Rexburg - I couldn't help but reminisce about my days at Ricks. I could never have guessed that I'd be back 30 years later with my boys. Time passes quickly...
This week will be fun - I drop Johnny off at BYU tomorrow morning for Basketball camp then it's playtime! I'll tell you all about it.

He created a crabby face as a fathers day joke - he's creating the face so you get the idea - scrambled egg mouth, fork nose, english muffin eyes, kielbasa eyebrows and fruit hair - fabulous!
Thanks Davey for being such a good dad and kind and loving hubby - I love you...

I have lovely childhood memories of watching wonderful world of Disney at my grandparents house - everyone would spit the seed in the potted plant in the corner. Thank goodness for seedless watermelon, now that its in season I try to keep cut up watermelon in the fridge at all times. I could certainly bring watermelon home in my bike trailer!
I love our grape vines!
The grapes are little but very promising with tons of clumps all over the place. They are so delicious and I imagine myself feeding the family even in times of famine with the grapes, at least for the few weeks they're ripe.
My Grandma Foster had a grape arbor along one side of her back yard. There were stepping stones through the middle of the vines - it was a great place to go on a hot summer day.
I'm going to notice and enjoy all the great things summer has to offer. Oh I almost forgot - I really love my electricity bill since our air conditioning has been out. The replacement will be installed next week but I'm becoming such a granola/earth mamma that I might leave it off. I love saving money - it means I can buy some new shoes...

I'm hoping I can keep up the garden watering because the cinderella pumpkins vines are looking really good.
It's such a miracle that great food comes from little tiny seeds. By the way the munched on tomato plants are thriving! I didn't even put out slug bait - you might think I'm all about growing organic with no pesticides of any kind but the truth is I just didn't get my lazy self down to the store to buy it - so far I guess the snails have moved on to greener pastures!

I read lots of blogs on google reader - I don't think the counter works with that so if you're reading this on google reader if you don't mind clicking on my blog just to make the number go up I'd appreciate it. I'm going to have to stop myself from logging on to my blog to see what the number is because I think that will increase the count artificially....

When I was a young mother I still enjoyed taking a break and catching up with Erika, Pheobe, Adam, Tad and Dixie. At some point I realized this was a big fat waste of time. I was talking about it with my neighbor at the time - an also overwhelmed young mother. She said, "I knew it was time to stop watching soap operas when I started praying for the characters".
I haven't watched soap operas for many years but Friday I had a break at 12:00 so I turned on the TV - I had already seen the DVR'ed episode of "What not to Wear" so I flipped through the guide and there was All My Children.
Honestly nothing has changed in 30 years!! Erika is in prison, Jack is trying to get her out. Adam is trying to mess with everyone. Tad and Dixie are together though it appears Dixie is actually dead and Tad is in a coma but they're happy to be together in the spirit world. Meanwhile it seems that everyone is looking for the daughter of Tad and Dixie whom Tad never knew about because Adam pretended the girl was his from when he was married to Dixie. I assume he had a paternity test done but never told Dixie that the girl was actually Tad's. Everyone is sure that if the long lost daughter talks to Tad he'll come out of his coma.
