Late Friday Evening

My friend Barbara and I went to see the new movie "Evan Almighty" this afternoon.   It's really a cute movie and suitable for children.  And the popcorn was especially good today. 

Our journal friend Joni had some surgery this morning.  I first called her husband this evening and then called her in her hospital  room.  She was "feeling no pain" which is good after surgery but she was very coherent and was happy to have the call.  It's hoped that she'll be discharged Saturday.   So why not stop by her AOL Journal and wish her well.  http://journals.aol.com/jonibooks1991/jonis-life-now/

It seems like all the excitment is over around here...first there was the graduation party, then the graduation, then the baby shower and then the baby arrived...now there's no big event to look forward to.   Well, there's the 4th of July.  Bob and I usually do try and go somewhere different each year for the 4th.  But haven't decided on a location yet for this year.  My grand daughter is going to be 15 years old on the 4th...I guess that's a big deal, especially for her.  Her and I will be taking our little get away for her birthday.  I think she wants to go back to Shipwreck Beads about 35 miles south of here.  8,000 square feet of beads and beading products, it's enough to blow your mind.

We have one huge community Carport/Yard Sale each summer.  That's coming up August 3rd, 4th & 5th.  So I will start getting ready for that in the next few weeks.  It's such a lot of work, so if I don't do well this year, it will be the last year I bother with it.

And then there's the cruise coming up in August.  But right now that seems like "light years" away. 

I'm glad summer is officially here.  It was light until after 9pm tonight.  Such a welcome change for those very short days of winter.

It seems Saturday is the birthday of one of our AOL journal friends.  Happy __th Birthday to Liz at http://journals.aol.com/bethjunebug/Bethjunebug  (won't you stop by and give her some bithday wishes.)

Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend...until next time, Linda

Wow... suitable movies for children are so hard to find these days.  Thank you for sharing that with me.  Can you email me with the story line... I might be able to take the kids to a summer matinee.  Other than the pool, DQ and the library visits we haven't done much yet this summer.  Sounds like you have a nice cruise to look forward to!!  Hugs,
Lisa
