Wednesday, June 18, 1997
It's been a rainy, dull day. This aft. we watched Mets vs. Yankees. It was a good series, esp. the first game which the Mets won. But they put up a good fight. I'm sure they gave the Yankees a scare. So I think the Mets made a good showing. I like the idea of inter league play.
Yesterday the A.M. & aft. circles from church went out to lunch at Heritage House in Russell - they take groups of at least 10 & aren't open daily. We had a nice time & enjoyed the food.
Interruption as Kim & Torey came over for awhile. Lar was at camp due to the rain. It's looking so nice - you'll be surprised when you see it.
We'll celebrate Kim's birthday on Sun. She can't some on Thurs, as usual as she has to teach a 3 hr. course at the Red Cross Thurs. & again on Mon. nite - 6-9. Her birthday is Sat. but they'll go out to dinner. Just 2 sessions for the class.
Now I'm watching Braves vs. Toronto & Tor. is ahead so far. They won.
Barb's been doing some weeding at the library. Lar got - can't think of the word - like mulch & she put it around the shrubs & it's a great improvement. Now she is starting in the basement - painting the floor & walls. A cream color for the walls & a tan floor. She's going by sections & has one section completed. What an improvement. It will take awhile - we have stuff we should get rid of. Lucky you don't have a basement to collect junk!
Dale is keeping the outside looking nice.
Enjoyed your letter & hearing of your doings. That is said about Renee but she sounds very cheerful & sure of the results.
Thurs. It's a beautiful day. I did a load of wash & hung it outside. Dale put the hooks up & then the lines so I can dry sheets outside.
When I asked Kim what to serve for her birthday - (when I asked anyone for ideas I don't get much response) Kim suggested salads & to grill hamburgers. We had steaks for Father's Day. So I'll make pot. salad, Broccoli Salad & fruit salad. Noticed Betty Crocker has a small angel food mix that makes 12 cupcakes or a loaf cake. I'll try that so she can have some candles even tho she doesn't eat desserts - except M&M's.
Now it's Fri A.M. Will be warmer & more humid today. They came & checked the air cond. & all is in good order. We'll probably use it today.
This letter will finally get mailed tomorrow - when I go over town.
Just watched a Western starring Audie Murphy. Enjoyed it.
Yesterday the movers were here (Conaways) & Dad sat on the porch watching. They (Harraras) are still here - at least the car is there & the back end opened so I suppose it's the last minute stuff before they take off to N. Dak. Haven't heard a thing about the new neighbors.
Strawberries are late this year - none so far at Hatch Patch. I need to make jam. Usually I pick with Kim. They have raspberries you can pick. Maybe I'll try that when they're ripe.
Gen was 75 June 13th & it was Fri. They (Millie, Edith, John, Gen & Ed) went out to dinner & then back to Gen's for cake & ice cream. Millie & Edith got a special cake decorated with "75".
Think I've "gabbed" enough.
