Beautiful day here today!  We got our house mostly cleaned today before we went shopping.  We went to the bank, to Sam's Club for gas, then into Sam's Club to return some mugs we bought that didn't keep drinks cold for even 4 hours - they said they would keep them cold for 24 hours.  No questions asked even though we didn't have our receipt.  Our membership card tracks all purchases.  Then we were off to Walmart and to Fareway.  Brought the groceries home - all before our chiropractor  appointment at 2:00!  Whew!

Now we're watching the Cubs...another nail biter.  We're ahead 5-3 in the 9th - 2 outs, runners at 1st and 2nd and Bryce Harper up to bat.  OMGosh!  Nervous!!  Now bases are loaded.  Come on Cubs!  Wild pitch - now 5-4, runners on 2nd & 3rd.  Whew!  Cubs win!!

It is so cold here today!  The high was only 67 and the wind was blowing pretty hard, so it didn't begin to feel like 67!  We went to church and then to Newton's for breakfast and Dave had to go to the car to get our jackets...only 4 people were brave enough to eat outside...and we weren't two of them!

Dave went to be with Bryan today and I stayed here, under a blanket!!

We got a little more sun today!!  We had a ball game at 10:45 and then another at 4:00 today, so we got plenty of sun!  The Trojans won their first game, but lost the 2nd game 1-0.  It was quite a pitcher's dual.  Tied at the end of regulation and the other team won in the 2nd OT inning.  Allison pitched the first game.  We got behind early on a couple of errors, but came back and won 11-4!

It's been a fun weekend.

Sun & Softball!

Fun day in the sun in Iowa City.  Allison pitched the first game, which we won in 3 innings 12-0.  She had a couple of good hits, too.  That was against Tipton.  Then  the second game was against Woodward=Granger and we won it 24-4 in 5 innings!  Allison as the DH in it and again had a couple of really good hits!

Tomorrow's another softball day in Iowa City!

Rain again  off and on today.  Sure looks like rain again tonight.  It's 82 at 8:00 - and very sticky!  Today I tried to do some stamping, but I think it's safe to say that I got more ink on my hands than I did on the paper!  Unfortunately it's Blackberry Bliss ink, so it's very noticeable.  I'm going to try again, but if it doesn't go better, I'm afraid I'll be getting rid of a bunch of Stampin' Up stuff.  :(

Dave went to Bryan's again.  He's having fun out there.  This evening we went to Waverly to the Pour House to listen to the Vette Band.  Clayton, his brother Ryan, and his dad Brett played at the Butler Co. Fair today and then they had a 2 hour gig tonight.  They're really pretty darn good!  Clayton has a very good voice for country music.

We had a wet day today.  The day started out rainy and ended up rainy, but in between it was lovely!  Dave went out to the farm to work on Bryan's workshop and he took a bunch of wood to Waverly for Linda and Al's fire pit.  I, meanwhile, was on chat for 3 hours trying to get our printer working with my laptop. After 3 hours and 3 technicians, it finally works!  I guess it just took a woman tech to get it done right!

Tonight we had salads for supper, along with ice cream and the rest of our raspberries.  Guess we'll have to pick some more this weekend!

I had a very frustrating day!  For some reason my printer isn't working and I've tried to reload it 3 times...failed 3x!  Tomorrow I will call HP and see if they can help me re-install it.  It's not even showing up on my computer.  It was working, but just this week the electricity has gone out 2-3 times because of it's MIA!

Dave went to the farm (Bryan's) and while he was there he picked some black raspberries.  So tonight we had ice cream and berries.  Yum!!
