I LOVE how the weather has been recently. It is hard to feel Fall in the air in Southern California compared to many of you I am very sure, but I do believe it is here. The nights and mornings are nice and cool even if it does still heat up quite a bit in the day. It is just gorgeous out in my opinion. I am especially enjoying it this morning. I sat on my porch for a while today with a cup of tea and my Bible and just soaked it all in. Perfect way to start a day.
Our week-end was nice, though we didn't do much out of the ordinary. Worked around the house on Sat. and just kind of took it easy. Yesterday we went to church and then over to James and Larissa's house for lunch like always. James put in a hard wood floor in their downstairs recently, and we got to see it for the first time yesterday. How wonderful it looked! It was decided that I would make them some new kitchen curtains, so Larissa and I went to Joannes and picked out some wonderful fabric. I am hoping to get started on that later today.

Today is JD's 5th birthday! I honestly can't believe this little guy is already 5 years old. You could search the world over and not find a sweeter little boy. Such a heart he has got. Always happy, always on the move, always making everyone smile. He is playing soccer for the first time this year and has been spending his time mainly at goalie. He told me yesterday about Saturday's game and I just got the biggest kick out of his description of the game. "Grandma," he says, "there was 3 cheats in the game." Upon asking him to explain what he meant he went on to tell me how he had the ball in his hand, "which ONLY the goalie is allowed to touch that ball with their hands Grandma, did you know that?" I assured him that I did indeed know that. "Well," he said, "that guy just grabbed it right out of my hand and then kicked it, and that's a cheat." haha I told him, "Well your right JD, they aren't suppose to do that." And he said, "No, but it's OK Grandma, he probably just got excited." Such a sweetie....He reminds me soo much of his daddy. Our little "mini James" haha. His party will be next Sun., and I am looking forward to it.
Melody is at the docs as I type this and she should be finding out today how much (or if at all I guess, haha) she is progressing. I am soo anxious to hear. She is SURE she will be dilated and practically ready to go, but as a first time mom I doubt she knows what she is talking about, haha. I am hoping the little guy stay's put myself till I am ready to go there on the 7th of Oct. Guess we will see. Meanwhile I am sooo happy that she has made it to term and that everything has gone as uneventfully as it has. Our God is sooo good. Maybe that phone will ring before I finish this, and you all can hear as well.
I am planning on going to Annabel's volleyball game later today. The last time I had this planned, the game was cancelled so I have yet to make it out to one. I am REALLY looking forward to it. Which reminds me, I'd better charge up the battery on the camera so I can get a pic or two or her playing. Soo fun.
Well the phone just rang and I felt my heart leap with excitement.....it was Melody. HOWEVER, she didn't find out a single thing. Her doc gave her an option on rather or not she would receive an internal exam, and she CHOSE not to. Sooo not like her mother here, haha, Her doc really kind of talked her out of it saying that he felt like it only upsets the mother anyway, and really doesn't mean anything. If they find out they are indeed dilated they become anxious and think it's all over when it doesn't really mean that at all. And if they are not dilated, they become hysterical that nothing is happening and go into a funk. The baby will come when it is ready, and that is all there is to it. Next week, however, he will check no matter what though. Sooo guess unless something DOES happen, we will just be waiting ANOTHER week, to see if something is happening, which apparently doesn't mean anything anyway, haha....Everything else look good, and sounded normal, so guess at the end of the day that is what is most important. I guess I really do agree with her doc. BUT!! I really wanted to know, lol!! There is NO WAY I would have said NO...
Well, guess I better get busy on this day if I am going to get a start on those curtains. Hope you all have a wonderful week!
