2. The pool is almost ready to swim in. (Right before I have to go back to school!) Mike and Andrew have worked very hard to get it ready. It's been in the worst shape ever, but they've gotten it going.
3. I got some new sheets last weekend. I had found some on the L.L. Bean website - a beautiful blue print, perfect for what I wanted. But - brace yourself - a set of queen-size sheets with two extra pillowcases would have cost $200. Not justifiable in my book. And then I saw an almost identical set of 100% cotton sheets, with extra pillowcases for purchase also, at Target. $65 on sale. A $10 iPhone coupon you could get instantly. A $20 gift card. Translated: The sheets cost $35. Almost identical to the ones from L.L. Bean.
4. Mike has discovered a beautiful arrangement of an old hymn. Andrew is working on singing it and I am working on the accompaniment. Maybe if we get it together right, I'll post an audio file. :-)
5. I went to a very nice lunch yesterday with three friends from church. It was in the home of one of them - always nice to be in someone's home - and I appreciate her doing that! It was a nice respite right before going back to school.
