Ah. Century Link guy has come and gone and we have a new modem and a new box on the outside of the house and hey! Look! I can post pictures. That's the one I took at the river yesterday. Look at that clear beautiful water.
I've been busy all day long. I finally got Maggie's dress finished and now she's here and wearing it.
She's such a busy girl. She and Gibson are both what I call "project babies" because they can create their own little worlds with a few toys and they like to get things organized and tidy.
At least sometimes.
They brought us presents. Two wooden butterflies that they had colored. Quite lovely. And Gibson wrote me a note.
Can you read it? It says, "To mermer from Gibson. Love me more than Owen."
Have I been giving Owen more attention than I give him or does he just want my full-on love while Owen's still at camp? Who knows? Bless his sweet heart, though.
I just walked through the hallway and Maggie was having a conversation on the old plug-in phone that the kids play with and that we use when the electricity goes out.
"I on the phone," Mer," she said. And then, into the phone she said, "Yeah, that's my MerMer," and she already has the teenager bored voice down pat.
She keeps telling me, "I gonna sleep with you, Mer!" and I'm like, "Well, you're going to sleep right beside me on your own little bed."
She has agreed to this but we shall see how that works out.
I know I'm already tired. It's hot, still, again, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be. Heat without end. Amen. Amen.
The Florida weather doxology.
I walked. I hung clothes. I made a dress. I've got supper started, stage one.
All of the devices that hook up to the internet have been given their new passwords. Everything is working fine. We found six eggs today. Maggie is looking at the banana spider in her web right outside the back porch. "She got eyes?"
"Yes. She has eyes."
And so it goes this second day of July, 2019. Tomorrow Owen will get home from camp. And other stuff will most likely happen too.
Even here in Lloyd.
