Aaron’s semester is halfway over, with a 2-day break from class.
Work is good. We finished a huge project–huge like the equivalent of spending an hour a day for a full year of my life huge.
Saturday my two cousins (from CA and Chicago), my aunt, and my grandparents gathered at my parents’ farm to celebrate Grandma’s 87th birthday next week.
My mom surprised my grandpa with spiral bound copies of the stories he had written out in a journal of his time on a PT boat in WWII. I helped her learn the fine art of not typing every written page in a separate document (no we will not ever let you live this down, Mom). I think he was very pleased at the surprise. We all got autographed copies.
Michigan fall is gorgeous right now. Saturday at the farm we cousins went for a long walk in the woods and down the country road. That is a hint of heaven.
AJ is more than ready for Halloween. I will keep her costume a surprise for now, but I must say it is Practically Perfect in Every Way!
