Yea! Sunshine!

I am jubilant today as this whole week should be sunny and warm! After the wettest spring and one of our coolest ever I was beginning to think that I was going to need to attack my "grumbling" which seemed to be about to surface! Today was still cooler but SUNNY and tomorrow will be SUNNY again and even warmer. Now, maybe we can get to the weeds in the flower garden.

I find it pretty awkward, being on the crutches in the garden. But, where there is a will, there is a way! My dear hubby has been good to help when he can. We should be up in the 90's in just another day or so. I never thought I would be excited about the 90's. Maybe I'm not really excited about the 90's as much as I am excited about the 80's. For me that seems like the perfect temperature, along with sunshine and just the teensiest breeze, a near perfect day in my book.

I have my appointment at the orthopedic surgeon's office for my knee on the 22nd. In the meantime, I continue to pray that the cyst will go away as fast as it came!

Our son is now in Corpus Christi, TX and LOVES it! They have moved into an apartment, C from his time at Moody AFB along with James, and B who roomed with James their last year of college (both were in ROTC, well, all three actually). This should be interesting for James because he chose to spend the last six months at Moody in an apartment by himself, without a TV, with the only furniture being a kitchen table and two chairs, his desk and chair and then his bed and bookcases. He was very focused on making it through those 6 months. Now, they will pool their belongings, in a fairly new apartment with a GORGEOUS view of the beach out their big window! And, a bonus in James' book, is that it is only 5 minutes from base! He hates "long" commutes and his commute at Moody AFB was too long by his estimation! It was only a 20-25 minute drive but when you are trying to get every minute of sleep possible after a late night of studying, I can see where that would be too long of a drive! :) Classes begin the 30th. Until then they continue to 'in-process' and wait for their furniture/belongings to be delivered.

I hope you continue to mend, Claire. It must be kind of awkward on crutches.
