    Michelle - That sounds like a fun outing!!

    Elizabeth - White chicken chili; one of my Instant-pot go-to meals. Everyone likes it and it is easy to make with either fresh or frozen chicken.

    Jen - I hope you made it through the day without snoring!

    HW - the chicken noodle soup sounds yummy!
    Yes, I remember that you said the classes were a disappointment -that is a shame!

    Michelle- That is a fun scavenger hunt. Our youth group used to do things like that. Two of our kids did one at Reformation Day with their Bible study. Fun stuff!

    AR- Are you speaking at your women's retreat? Exciting! We are gearing up for our trip next week. I got an email from the retreat organizers. Apparently, Mr. Laws is a passionate teacher and is hard to keep on a schedule. The ending times are highly questionable. We are leaving for home after that so I was worried, but Dan seemed ok with it when I told him at dinner tonight. I learned this a few days ago.

    • read aloud from Anne of Avonlea at lunch- I love these stories so much!
    • watched several videos on putting tube watercolors into pans- You Tube is a special place.
    • filled my watercolor pans- and even received the missing color in the mail so that I could do the last one. I labeled them too, so I won't get confused on the colors. I need to do that with my travel set.
    • did some dishes and got the dishwasher running
    • kept laundry going- hung a lot of dh's dress clothes as they came out of the dryer.
    • got the refill called in for the med- office totally dropped the ball on many levels. Hopefully it only gets better from here.
    • took R downtown to get her contest materials- she got a great set of purples and blues in jewel tones and one piece of exquisite brocade fabric. She is busy doing research. I can hardly wait to see what comes of it all. Did I mention first prize is two tickets on the campus bus to NYC? Cornell has a tech research campus there and the medical school is there as well. So, there is a bus that goes the five hours daily.
    • picked up dh on our way home
    • made dinner
    • talked with my dad- he and my mom were in good spirits. They had a visit from my nephew and his family today (one of my brother's six sons) and his wife cut my mom's hair. She's a stylist. So nice! They had a good visit. But, my dad confirmed that he can't do anything really at all anymore.
    • did some follow up work for a client- consulting is fun!
    • filled out the paperwork for the boys- to join the local RC flying club. I15 skipped last season because of Lyme, but he's ready to fly again and J has a new quadcopter so he joined to fly at the field but also this time of year at the local gym. They fly indoors twice a week. I hope to take them when we return from our trip. I still have to register their planes with the FAA. It's $5 a plane/quad and you have to have the registration number on the plane just like real ones.
    • switched the towels to the dryer- my last load of the day
    • read some of A Wrinkle in Time- to distract myself and you have any hope of using that silly reading journal!
    • finally found a charging cord to charge my headphones- I asked R to do it. She has the same set. Dan moved his cord and we don't know where it went!

    I got almost everything on my list. Tomorrow I will get that reimbursement form into the mail.

    Hopefully, I will sleep better tonight than the previous two nights!
