Boring recital of activities with update of Aran, too

Busy, busy day today. This morning Jacy, David and I drove to Atlanta to pick up Kim and Josh at the airport. They're going to spend a week with us.

We came home, changed vehicles, then Joan, Marley, David, Josh and I drove to Montgomery to get groceries from the commissary. I wanted as many children as I could get to go with me, because I only go there once every two or three months, and I knew I'd need three grocery carts and people to push them.

The children unloaded the van and finished getting supper ready (Sarah put a beef roast in the big slow-cooker at noon, and Joan quickly sliced up potatoes to oven-roast with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder on them, and both girls washed and cut up broccoli to steam). We had supper on the table within 15 minutes of walking in the door.

Then we put away all the groceries and I checked messages and returned phone calls. Now we're tidying up the downstairs (I have no idea what upstairs looks like) so it's ready for company tomorrow. Several ladies from church (and their children) are coming over in the morning to knit, and I'd like to have everything ready tonight so I can sleep in until 8:00 a.m.

And in a minute, I'm going to sit down and knit on the Aran which is coming along very well, then read some in Middlemarch.

That really is beautiful. I don't know if I'll ever be able to make anything like that. I don't know if I have the patience or the brains. :-)

The couple who just got married at our church a couple weeks ago are named Kim and Josh.
