Pretty much this month. So we took son to the Martina McBride concert last Friday. It was amazing!! She is a great performer. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening......and son is still talking about it. I took videos with my camera and converted them to a DVD for him. He got to shake her hand at the end of the concert...he was the first and only one at the edge of the stage for the last song.
Yep...that's him in the first photo. He says he'll carry this memory with him forever.....no doubt!
Got the word from granddaughter 2 days ago.....her unit will be leaving for Kuwait on June 30. There's talk they'll be serving in Iraq as well. God bless them all.
I've got 1 more room to do for the annual cleaning. Plan to get at it today. Then I'm done with all the inside work; time to move outside. Not my favorite thing....outside....in the summer. The heat, humidity, bugs......LOTS of bugs....of every species. Of course, no shortage of mosquitos.....the state bird of Minnesota.
No knitting has taken place this month. Lots of spinning though. However, why does it always seem that the closer you get to finishing a fiber, the longer it takes. It seems like there's no end to this particular color. And my patience is running thin. I want to get it done and move on to another.
Grandson's graduation party is today. We will not be attending. A very, very long story. Lots of drama from our son and his fiancé.
They have pulled us into a nasty situation which we have nothing to do with. And now there's a lot of anger on their part at us, and a lot of hurt on our side. The fact that invitations were sent out a couple of weeks ago....but we received ours just Wednesday. Grandson was supposed to stop by our home Sunday to invite us personally, but never showed nor called. It makes us feel like it was never intended for us to be part of the celebration; a last minute thought or decision on their part. Oh well. We've been through this before with another adult kid. This is NOT the family I grew up in. This is NOT my parents' family. Never will be. What a rotten shame.
So....cleaning today; taking daughter grocery shopping tomorrow. That takes a few hours.
More rain in the forecast for tomorrow. We've been getting quite a bit of rain. I wanted so bad to douse the flowers with MiracleGrow to make them "thicker and lusher" as the advertising says, but they're wet enough with Mother Nature's help.
Still don't have the screen house up yet. BH promises it'll be up by the Fourth of July. We'll see......
And that's all the news from Upnorth, MN. Hope you all have a great weekend!!
