We enjoyed the pool yesterday evening, & then spontaneously decided to go to dinner. The food had just arrived when Nick informed us that he was very sick. Ahhh, life with kiddos! :) We packed up dinner, headed home, & Nick threw up on our driveway. He was sick all through the night, and this morning. He skipped soccer, and is starting to feel better, after crackers & Gatorade.
I was up quite a bit in the night with him, and then took Sam to soccer this morning so M could get in some yard work. We have one mature fruit tree (a grapefruit tree), but the neighbor has a tree that has basically smothered it - the neighbor's tree is about 5 feet beyond the property line, has grown on top of our tree - blocking the sun, and is also close to our roof. M spoke to our neighbor (she is quite elderly) & asked her if he could cut it. So, he was taking care of that this morning.
This afternoon, I made everyone lunch & then we all got in the pool. It's 90 degree, so relaxing by the pool in the sunshine (technically, I use a big umbrella, so it's the shade) was just what the doctor ordered after a sleepless night. I'll also wrap up some laundry, hit Costco, get my supplies for the end of the year soccer party tomorrow, and I have a batch of muffins in for our other neighbors. It's a lovely woman who is taking care of her husband with advanced dementia. I know she doesn't get out much, so the kids & I try to go over when we can (with baked goods or meals) just to say hello.
This evening, I'm meeting a friend (M's cousin's wife) for dinner. I hope I can stay up late enough to handle it. :-)
It's HOT here today, and I can already tell that we are going to need air conditioning! Our rental house stayed cool in the heat, but this house is not as insulated. We'll have to price that out & add it to our budget. Maybe we'll add in solar?
What about you? What are you up to today?
