1. Last Friday we had a little "shooting party." (Sounds very 1800s.) My husband and son have a friend with a shooting range in his back yard in the country, and my son, daughter-in-law, sister, Mike, and I all went to practice. We all did well and it was a fun thing to do on a beautiful day.

3. Last Monday, Mike and I went to one of our favorite "haunts" for birds. It was a totally useless trip. Two great blue herons, and that's ALL we saw. Plus we saw where a huge chicken farm is being built right where there used to be a large area of woods that was perfect for a lot of wildlife - that's a big disappointment. And then, we decided to jump on the interstate and go five miles up so we could stop at a Bojangles for Mike to get some biscuits to take to work the next morning. BIG mistake. TRAFFIC JAM. After 30+ minutes, we finally got off at our destination. The upside to all this: Since by now we were hungry and hadn't even thought about any supper, we stopped to eat at a nice little Italian place. And I have leftovers for lunch today.
4. I attended a little party on Tuesday evening for a former colleague who has returned to town. The circumstances are not happy - her husband passed away very suddenly last summer - but it was very nice to see her and to see how God is keeping her from day to day. And a number of other friends, acquaintances, and colleagues I had not seen for a long time were also there. We all enjoyed catching up.
5. And finally: This pile of fleece, enough for 15 blankets, is cut and ready for a "blanket-making party" Monday after school. A number of students have said they are coming, even non-Beta Club students (the club is sponsoring this). We shall see how it turns out!
