thank you paul!

I am writing this on my new Samsung chromebook. It was a big surprise, it came in the mail today. I was out shopping with Emily today, and Jonathan called me to say we need catfood and that a package came for me. I said it was probably for one of the kids, but he insisted it was for me, and that Dad said to put it in my chair. Jon was pretty excited. He helped me open it and charge it. I love it so far, it is small and light, but has a nice keyboard.

This morning I got the kids out the door to school, went on my walk, then left for the small city with Emily. I had to get fasting bloodwork done, then we had a few hours before her dentist appointment, so we went out to breakfast in a little diner that we had never been to. Coffee and more coffee and scrambled eggs and cinnamon raisin toast, the time went by too fast.

We did have an agenda today: to buy stuff for this weekend's church grill. Pizza dough and cheese and burgers and fries and and and, until the back of her little Suzuki was all filled up. We went to three stores, plus a stop for pumpkin spice coffee at DunkinDonuts.

Emily is a firm believer in stopping to smell the roses. She can play Off On A Tangent, and she knows how to make the best of every situation, knows how to live life to the fullest, no matter what we are doing.

I have meatballs in the oven, and cauliflower in the microwave, time to get some sauce mixed up and perhaps make a little bit of pasta for the, I want to figure out this new gadget....
