a) Nothing. Hence no posts.
b) Forced to flee the house again.
No worries, it's just stuff. After June felt crazy, we thought July would be easy, but July has felt crazy too. There were weddings, with Karen going to goddaughter Julie's solo, and Loren and Mike's, that we did a crazy drive in for the day thing. The house saw deck repairs, new windows, the couch back from Andre (who is like the answer to "what do you get when you cross a dutch fireman with George Clooney," but, man can the guy pretty up a settee), and painted what has alternately described as lime sherbet, mint chocolate chip hold the chips, fresh, cottagey, oooh bright, and topiary tint. (The last what Sherwin Williams calls it.) We had a terrific guy, Eric, for the windows and a great team from College Pro Painters for the paint, call for the numbers. And VBS, which we were more into again, with Karen running crafts, with Heather and Gail support, and John story-telling Joseph. (No pics as of yet, but you should see the Many Colors Coat that Elizabeth made. Wow.) Our church's education person, Leslie, does a great job and really treasures the kids. We also had the chance to do Loving Spoonfuls again, a nice service where the church provides a Sunday supper for free, run by Randall and Cissy. Andrew helped us, and we always welcome guest chefs/waiters to work with us. Xavier passed his second belt test in a month, and is now a green stripe. He has a group board break on Monday before the Whitecaps game. And that brings us to Coast Guard...
Cookies for cookies' sake. They weren't for anything in particular!
(EDIT: it has been pointed out that these were 4th of July cookies.
You know, with cats.)
Coming soon: the latest flick from Y's pen: Humans are High in Fiber, filmed with a full extended family cast. I'm excited because it looks like Tara's editing it instead of me!
