Our yard is dirt. 😞 

 

Enrique says use flagstone.

So, up on its side with something behind supporting?  Or something else?  They are quite flat in the pics.

I totally misunderstood what you meant when I asked him. I'll have to ask again. Sorry.

It would probably be easier for me to send him to do it. He's explaining to me how to do it using diagrams!

He says Home Depot sells stones similar to what's on your home, but that is the last thing that gets used. (This conversation includes: ditch, cement, block, waterproofing, stone, other words I pretended to understand (jk)...) The way he's setting it up, it will last longer than your home! So, when do you want him?

Good morning.

I took a bath.

Which was done about half an hour ago.

But I'm still hiding in the bathroom cause I don't feel like facing the day...

Home from church and lunch.  We ate out so oldest could have a nice meal before driving back to college.  

Our front yard has lots of weeds.  Well so does the back.  And they're getting thick and clumpy, so should probably be mowed soon.  Also, we have moles.  And a dog who tries to dig for moles.

Lunch today is cordon bleu. I split the breast down the middle and stuffed them with proscuitto/swiss rolls, instead of the violent, beat-the-breast method. Plus, I'm lazy. Dh and Gymnast are walking in the river, and I need to decide what we'll have for sides. Plus, I'm working on a book cover on Canva. I'm pretty bad at it, but I'm getting better. 😂

The dog and I just finished walking four miles.  Mostly alone.  In sporadic rain.  All the extra kids have been returned.  Church is done.  Bedding in dryer and washer.  Taking a break before making broccoli salad and ranch dressings and making beds.

We're gonna eat Aldi pizza and watch a couple episodes of the new season of The Tick.  Then root beer floats and/or ice cream.

Hi.  Super busy here.  Church (which included setting up for communion).  Church potluck afterward.  Church clean up after that.  Just got home.

The last load of laundry is in the washer.  All the laundry in the house will be done.  For like, 5 minutes anyway.   

Tomorrow's classes are planned, kids school is set up for the week, I'm eating leftover pasta for dinner, kids are eating other versions of leftover pasta.  I'm ready to settle in with a movie or a book, not sure which.  I want pretty mindless so I'll probably go with a movie.

I am here. Took the girls on our semi-annual shopping trip to the Big City. Lunch at In ‘n Out and the girls are all happy with their purchases. I got Easter dresses and sandals for the girls. The only one who got a swimsuit was my Baby. We found one adorable swimsuit at Target. It was the only one of its kind and it happened to be in her size. And it is absolutely adorable.

Yeah, I think we really need to have a retreat at the Island. Things have been getting kind of slack around here and I think we really just need to have some bonding time and go over our goals and expectations over foot massages and cold drinks with umbrellas in them. I’ll call Rocco and get him on that right away.

Dh and gymnast got the laundry done at the laundromat, so there's bags waiting for me (us) to put away. I stayed home and pretended to work by cleaning under the sofa (how does so much stuff get under there anyway?????), snacking on mini Chips Ahoy, and working on book covers for the copywork series. Ignore the part about the mini Chips Ahoy, I washed it down with water, so it's okay.

Tomorrow I am off to see The Wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz.  He's on the other side of The Big City, so depending on rush hour traffic it will take 1-1/2 to 2 hours to get there and an hour to get back.  That's a lot of driving this week, but they are paying pretty well.  The family is on their own for dinner.  I will stock up on spaghetti.

I woke up a while ago, but I didn't want to get up.  So I stayed in bed for an hour, undisturbed.  :)

Good morning!  It's The Queen's favorite day!

Apparently we had a big storm last night that I slept right through.  :smile:

We have misc. lessons and things this morning, and then I will drop the kids off at music lessons/choir this afternoon and go to The Wizard after that.  Rehearsal starts at 7:00, so depending on the efficiency of the director, I hope to be back home by 11ish.  Dh will pick the kids up from choir after work and bring everyone to Scouts.

Coffee!

Monday!!!!😩😩😩😩

This week is going to be crazy. The kids have state testing. They’ve been doing practice tests and the test is hard. And all this is diametrically opposed to everything I stand for as a homeschooler. And it makes me realize how much I’ve sold my soul to be a part of this charter and then....even more so since I am going to work for the Charter and will have to push the testing.😩😩😩😩 Anyhow, The Kids have testing on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, so I won’t be making them do regular school then. Today I think we will try to catch up on science and maybe do some art. We haven’t done art in ages. And we’ll do the same thing on Friday.

Jury summons. Again. I feel like I just did this last year. Or was it the year before?

I had jury duty. There were 148 of us, and they were asking a bunch of questions to decide who the 16-member jury panel for an upcoming case was going to be. It's a good thing I wasn't selected because the case is estimated to be 3 weeks long, is a murder, and involved two young teens.

 

 

ps. It's 16 because there's 12, then 4 alternates. The alternates don't know they are alternates until it is time to deliberate, so they have to be there the entire case too.

Goodness gracious, you went all the way back! I still feel there was another. I had to sit with three or four other groups of summoned when the court was seating for four different trials at the same time. I wasn't chosen for any of those either. Maybe that was further back.

I think the first chapter of The Book of the Dun Cow is quite possibly the most magnificent first chapter ever written.  But you have to be willing to put yourself out there; reading for dramatic effect and doing the voices.  It's wonderful.

I am at the lake. I don't know exactly where my spawn are, but they are somewhere on the lake in boats. 80+ weather in April should be banned. Not enough trees have leaves for shade!

I did a search within this thread for "jury." That was the first result I saw from you, but there may be others.

We are in The Pollening. There's so much that the deck is slippery. These loblolly pines need to get a room.

I finally figured out how to do it! 

So, when we are called, we are serving on-call for three months. So the first time I was called was the one you quoted. I was called a second time a month and a half later! No wonder I felt like I'd been called a lot. I wasn't chosen for any of the cases though.

I’ve only had jury duty once. Drug case involving an informant and 1st offense at a local grocery market that we drive by all the time. 

We measured everyone on the wall before we left. Ds14 is finally a little taller than dd12. Dd10 is still in the 97th percentile for height. Dd16 is up to the 25th percentile!  She just rolled her eyes at me. Pipsqueak. 😂

Never had jury duty.  I was summoned once but was excused because I was caring for minor children.

Tomorrow is the last of my classes for the Winter session.  Today and tomorrow were makeup days from snow.  I'm looking forward to setting up for the new session.  It's the last one for the year, then summer camps.  

I'm teaching a high school level forensics class by request.  That's going to be a lot of fun.

Dh spent the weekend with his parents getting evaluations done for assisted care.  They qualify for everything but evidently they don't actually make recommendations.  They just say what they qualify for and the family has to make the decisions.  There's three brothers - dh thinks fil needs assisted living, one brother doesn't think it's that bad and wants to wait, and the other has no real opinion.

Tomorrow I have three classes, Teen Hangout and my tech tuesday job.  Skipped one because they didn't have enough attendance and I couldn't do it the off week because of 4-H.  Nothing too complicated - making hot/cold packs in one class, optics/telescopes/lenses in another class, and optics/kaleidoscopes in the third class.  Bubbles in Tech Tuesday.
