A fruitful day

We did school and it went well.  Did I say yesterday I had a blow up?  Yes.  Our son messed with the bull and got the horns as my husband would say.  He was much better behaved today.  It must have been Mom's explosion got him to thinking twice about submitting an assignment that he put zero effort into.

I sewed after dinner.  Got his pajama shorts done and he's extra pleased with them.  Tomorrow I'll sew the top.  Doing it after dinner fits my schedule nicely.

It was like Christmas.  I got two books I ordered and the rest of my horse grooming supplies today.  I'm very happy with everything.  One book is about angels by Billy Graham and the other is the MLA for writing research papers.  I figured he may as well learn to use it now.  I got a splendid idear from someone online.  The MLA is really not very user friendly, so I'm going to make up a game for him to look some things up.

The biggest thing of my day is I downloaded WordPress.  It's on my desktop as I write.  It's staring at me.  I have to unzip it but I have no unzipper software.  I used to use Winzip, but they're not free anymore and I already used up the free days on it.  I need to go to bed at midnight so I guess it'll wait till tomorrow.  One step at a time.

And I put a notice on my Geocities site so people can bookmark the new URL.  I need to move that whole site.  It shouldn't be too hard after I figger out how to do it.  That's what I'm figgerin'.

We had rain today and I witnessed the biggest complete rainbow I've ever seen in my life.  We had thunder too.  It rumbled and crackled for long intervals.  It was neat!

I love thunderstorms, not the violent kind but just rain and some thunder. I hope your son enjoys his PJs.
