Lazy, Rainy Day

Today started off with my family and I making a short trip to the country. We had breakfast at Cracker Barrel; then off to visit some relatives. Started to rain and that about did it for me. This was the perfect opportunity for me to catch up on some much needed sleep. Very little studying was done today and I am at least a lesson behind in homework. Monday I will definitely have to get some serious writing and studying done. Right now, I can hear the slight "frying" sound of the rain hitting the house and the ground. There is a grumble of thunder in the distance and a flash or two of lightening, a perfect time to commune with nature and relax.

Father's Day

My Dad is a pretty cool guy. He likes to play with the children of our family. He's a fantastic fan of tickling. He's not happy unless he has had one of us screaming with laughter while being tickled. He has his own speech and sign language that everyone of us at some time has spoken and/or signed with him. He watches kid shows and cartoons with some of his great-grandchildren. He makes every effort to "save" his grandchildren and great-grandchildren from punishments that we, as parents, attempt to enforce. With the death of a majority of his siblings, he has embraced their children as his own and is always enquiring of their welfare.

I did not post anything yesterday as I spent the entire day with my Dad. He started the day at breakfast with my Mom, Dad's sister, my Brother, my Son, myself and three of his ten great-grandchildren. He received numerous well-wishing calls from some other grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as other relatives and friends.

Later in the day, we took my Dad to his favorite restaurant. He ordered his favorite meal which is a farm raised catfish dinner. He was well and truly stuffed when he was able to get up from the table and leave. This was a great "pick me up" for him as he has been ill lately. He really enjoyed the day.

Writing Courses

Since beginning this journey, I have contemplated taking some refresher writing courses just to make sure that I'm on the right track. I started with Beginning Writers Workshop just this week and I'm happy to report that so far what I thought I remembered, I actually do remember! I'll still take a few more just to be on the safe side because I'm currently working on my first novel. I want everything to be in order...as much as possible. My "folks" are definitely talking to me again. This time I'm listening and writing it all down.
