Wanna Play Catch?

The past week has been great. Busy though. And I've had a cold. What is the deal with my immune system, huh? Sheesh. Enough is enough already.

Today the plan is gardening. Of course, right? No big surprise there. I have a border to put in and some weeding/tidying of some things. Then a nice long bike ride on the trails. We are fortunate to live a couple blocks away from one of our towns longest paved bike trails. I have only been a short distance running it, so I am looking forward to seeing where it goes. Tomorrow, hubby and I are planning a long ride. Several miles, break for lunch and then ride back.

Hubby's birthday was last Sunday. After a great morning of my being able to help lead worship with my kids band and my kids singers (who were amazing, by the way), we went out to lunch with a ton of friends to the Olive Garden. Always a good time. He got some free drinks and free dessert...because his friends are awesome. We were amazingly able to squeeze in a nap before heading back to church for the evening service.

He got some pretty good presents too. Spoiled rotten, this one is. We were at Menards on Saturday looking at garden sheds (ours is coming in two weeks!!) and since it was Father's Day weekend, all the power tools were on sale. So I said, "Happy Birthday, buy a circular saw!" and we got a great deal. Then I gave him a couple new sets of pliers that he wanted, a silly kids book called, "How I Became a Pirate," for, as you may or may not know, we are planning on being pirates one day.


And then I also gave him a bike helmet. He said, "Sweet, what should I do with this?"

I said, "You can run down the street really fast and if you fall down, you won't hurt your head."

He said, "Sweet... No really."

And I said, "Ok, fine, I couldn't fit the bike in a gift bag."


Monday we went to pick up his brand spanking new bike and get it fitted perfectly to him. I had ordered it special since he is a rather tall man and there was actually only one that was his size that they even made. I don't think he has ever had a bike that really fit him well so I'm very excited for him. We have lots of biking expeditions planned and he is even at this moment looking up maps for us to explore.

I even got myself a helmet and a new seat for my bike so my head and my tushie will both be safe.



Last night we felt the need to stay up until the wee hours of the morning watching an old stoner flick and munching on popcorn. We didn't even sleep in that late this morning, surprisingly.

And tonight we are going to a play that one of the kids from my band is in. Should be a fun date night out. We might even go see a movie tomorrow night.

And this was the most rambling post I think I have ever written. I hope you feel sufficiently caught up and completely confused.

Love to you all.

All these mentions of things you've done and things you're going to do, and yet *not one* mention of Zelda. To say I am disappointed would be an understatement.

If men in black suits from Nintendo Protective Services come by and snatch your GameCube out from under you...

don't be suprised.

^^ Sometimes, I love what I write sooo much, I just have to post it twice ^^

... stupid 'Blogger'...

I have been put in my place. Alas, there has been no Zelda play. The situation must be remedied and immediately. Attention will be paid to set this right.

Nate said...

Good to hear. Your lil' GameCube will thank you for it, I promise.

...Poor little felluh...

Wow, busy busy busy. Happy belated mr. little bit crazy.

So how tall is the man? The angle of that picture, as well as the seat being jacked up so high does make him appear tall. Tower of Power! wooo hooo. happy biking!

anne said...

He's GIANT. Ok, only 6'6".

Jean said...

Did he love the book?? I totally forgot about that, even though I was there when purchased! You ride your little body good tomorrow. And then take a hot bath. :)

See Nate, if you had a MAC, then you wouldn't have to be posting things twice for all to read twice for all to wonder, "why in the world did he post that twice". "Ohhhh.. he must have a PC!". ok...maybe not as I can't even get onto my blogger account.

Nate said...

Oh... Jean... low blow right there. Low. Blow.

Carbon said...

That is tall! We have a friend that's the same height and he is soooo tired of people asking him "how's the air up there" and "Wow, your TALL. How tall are you?".

anne said...

Exactly. He has a friend who is 6'10" and it's so weird to see him look 'up' to someone!! They hate being asked how tall they are and, "do you play basketball?"

HA!
