WET DREAMS

A very catchy title, eh?

But I'm really talking about how I'm planning to live my new more active life during the rainy season in Portland.  It's not starting out so good.  Yesterday, I didn't make myself go for an intentional walk.  Although several times when it wasn't raining, I did walk a little errand or take a walk with the Handykid's daughter and later Mr. Braeden.

Son-in-law Jesse (without the marriage license) called to ask if I would take him to get his car battery replaced.  I invited Braeden to ride around with us (he looked so adorable in jeans and a white golf shirt).  Goodyear did not have the same battery in stock so asked if he could return in an hour as they would have one delivered.

That worked out perfect for me!  Lunch with the boys!  Jesse then emptied my car from the previous day's Costco trip and Ikea trip.  I sure do love having younger muscles around!  He trimmed a few plants, hosed off the patio (sawdust left behind when I rushed Handykid out) and greatly admired my storage closet with new wooden shelves that utilize every cubic inch of space.  

This morning I have a teeth cleaning appointment then fun with the whole little family, including lunch at The Original Hotcake House.  Mr. B gets to spend the night!  In his beloved Soldier Guy Room.

He will walk with me rain or shine.  Little does he know I have a Spiderman umbrella for him!

  1. Your unson-in-law (that's what we call them around here) sure came in handy today. That was a nice perk!

    I don't mind walking in a some rain and I'll bet that Spiderman umbrella will be a real hit!

    1. Friday we all went to lunch together (pancakes!) then went on a walk. Kate now wears the baby on her back in a wrap sling kinda thing. He usually falls asleep. Braeden loved his umbrella and they actually had to use them!

    1. Wise insight, I think! But I don't enjoy BIG gatherings any more. I think back in the day I did okay because I was usually the hostess so chatting and serving was my job. Now I'd rather pick one or two people and get to know them better. Last night we had a Pink Party. Today's blog!

  3. Is there anything better than a great closet? I think not. Well, maybe a guy with muscles to do a few things for you.
    A spiderman umbrella!?! Aren't you the bestest grandma.

    1. My Handykid is thinking of moving to Colorado. Then what will I do? I need to make friends with some guys (or gals) who have that "fix it" gene.
