MK set the alarm for 6:00 AM and despite the fact that she left for the kids’ house, I got up anyway. I managed to make the bed, go downstairs, feed and walk the dog, and take my morning supplements. By around 8:00 AM, MK had returned with the youngest grandkids. I had made Cream of Wheat but that, which is a usual favorite, was a seemingly lackluster breakfast. Frankly, I think that the grandkids were too excited to be over.
Stewart’s pool was out and we quickly put out the other one, the one that has a central spout attached to the hose, which shoots water into the air and then falls back into the pool. It is clearly going to be a hot day in the neighborhood. By 9:00 AM we were making a lot of noise and I keep wondering if malbor is unhappy. The good thing is that he usually professes to love children, although these are the children he blew an airhorn at just a little over a year ago. I am so sorry I dissuaded the police from giving him a ticket.
Just around 9:30 AM, the cousins arrived. One of them, like me, has a cold. Luckily, that seems to be nary a problem. The heat is ramping up. Since I was using the outdoor water, I cleaned the recycling bin and intend to do the same with the garbage bin, which actually has much more need of cleaning. I have a lot of vinegar in the garage and intend to use that as my cleaning agent with a little Dawn.
The kids are having a great time, especially with Stewart’s favorite game, having them throw water at him. He jumps up and tries to catch it. It is a very silly game, but it could occupy kids and dog for hours.
Well, it is 10:00 and it seems like we have experienced a whole day of activities. Kids are drying off and we are on to the next activity.
