I honestly did try to have a decent picture for tonight's post, but for some reason none of the ones Dick took of me were good. I think it is because he is taller than I am and he was standing up when he took it and the result is that my body was all weird, my feet looked too small and my head too large. I will try again next Sunday. I will have him sit down so that he is at my level when he takes it. Anyway, I am just not good at the picture thing, as you all know.
We are in the process of getting ready for our company. Today I made oatmeal cookies because every night before he goes to bed, Dave likes to eat an oatmeal cookie and some non fat milk. When he is home, he buys his cookies at the store, so I like to have plenty of home made ones when he comes here. Yesterday morning Dick cleaned a little more than half the garage. I mean he REALLY CLEANED it. He washed every little thing and even mopped the floor after he had vacuumed all of it. This morning he started at 6:00 a.m. and worked another 3 1/2 hours and it is truly clean. It has been a long long time since it has been this clean. Every once in a while I have to go out there just to take a look. He went to mail our new computer back to the company. as they are replacing it, and he noticed that his neck and shoulders started to feel a certain feeling he gets, so as soon as he got home he used this little gizmo that tells him if he is in a-fib and he was! Darn.........but he took a very long rest and fortunately in a few hours he felt better so he tested it again and he was back in a normal sinus rythmn!!! I am so glad because he really needs to be at the church tonight they are having a special meeting on home teaching and he really wanted to be there.
Yes, I'm on my own tonight. Had I not been, I think I would have had him transfer any picture we have on file just to make this post a little more interesting. I could always post a picture of our little Sullivan, who is growing up so darned fast and is doing so very well. I just can't stand it if I don't get to see him every two or three months. It will be a lot longer than that, I am afraid, unless Kristin brings him here this summer. She is expecting my fifth great grandchild the middle of September and it is a girl!! They really wanted one so we are all excited.
We are having our Johnson family reunion in Salt Lake City September l. My mother would have been 130 years old on Sept. l, so I think that is pretty neat! We had our last one three years ago at Sue's. We have them every three years and I am the youngest in my family, which is the reason we had it at Sue's as it was my turn. She has such a much larger house. It was really a good one and I'm sure this one will be fun too. It is the turn of my oldest brother Byron's children to host this one and their daughter, Virginia, lives in Bountiful so they are having it is Salt Lake. Lucky for me because we will get to stay with our daughter Jayne for awhile. We might even try to stay there until Kristin has the baby. I hope she has it on time, or better still a few days early! I also hope that all of my nieces and nephews will be there, for the reunion, that is.
Well, I do think I've rambled on enough for this time. I hope you are all enjoying the spring. It will soon be over. Summer time here in the desert is a pretty warm place to be. We have actually been having pretty warm weather this past week. It has been from around 104 degrees to about 106. Sue, you will be happy to know that our temperatures will go down on Thursday to 85 and will stay in the 80's for a few days. Our forecast takes us through next Tuesday. Sunday(the day you will be gone for the wedding) it will go to 95 and Monday it will be 103. So you will have only one REALLY hot day. The guys should love the cooler temps for Friday and Saturday though. I never could understand how they could play golf on those hot days.
Take care everyone.........I'll be back next Tuesday. Then I can tell you all about the fun we will have had with our loved ones. I know I will be sad because most of them will go home Monday,
but Sue, Dave and Ryan will leave Tuesday morning. My love to all
