Never On A Sunday

After church Levi asked me what I was going to do on my day off...I said I'd probably work on the duck pond some more....he said, "You're going to work on your day off?"  Well, I like to work!  But, somehow I sat down in my recliner to crochet for a few minutes and didn't get back up!!  Oh well, it was drizzly out and everyone needs a day off, right?

Today was Mr. Adams' birthday! 

We celebrated by eating out for lunch AND dinner....both times with friends.  

Ben came home today.  He has been working on a fishing boat for the summer and has not even stepped on land for a month! 

All in all it was a good day.


  1. Aw, happy birthday Mr. really do age well! xoxo
