That is super exciting! I hope that the photos/videos bring her in lots of new business!
What happens if she gets too much business? Will she be able to hire someone to do some part of the process, so that she can fulfill all of the orders, or is this something that she has to do from beginning to end, every step, herself?
I'm glad that she's eating better, and hope that whatever the problem is resolves itself completely, so that she feels better, and you won't have to worry.
Those are the kinds of temperatures that we were having on our hot days. That's way too hot, period.
As for smoke, we got a few days reprieve, but they called for it all coming back in this weekend. I think that you may be right about your house vs. Kara's.
So, have they figured out what is causing Tony's problem; what it is?
I'm glad that it's coming right up, and think that it's cool that they give them shirts and a jacket. It's nice to see some respect for them, especially the ones from Vietnam. It's been a long time coming in general.
How old is Kara's kitten? One of these days, the same will be true for Henry, but he's a tad small at this point!
That's interesting that Missy cries when Dh is there, vs. not there, when you are gone. Poor Missy. I think that she's just used to you being home now. I wonder how many people who've been home, even working from home perhaps, since the beginning of covid, and are starting to go back to in-person jobs, will have the same issue with their very small children, and their pets...some of which have only been around since after last March, or who were very young before that.
Even Thyri was born only a couple of weeks before the first lockdown. Children, like her, didn't get the usual socialization.
I know that we don't think about certain things, like drinking bottles or having diaper changes, away from home.
When mine were little, besides going to stores, restaurants, etc., we would take drives to visit my parents, my grandmother, my other grandfather, my aunts and sometimes cousins. The babies/small children would be with us, of course, and everyone...no matter which of the above we visited...was so thrilled to see them. They made a fuss over them, often held them, etc. and they had their bottles where we were, and diaper changes there.
Thyri had so little interaction with extended family compared, and ddil has a large extended family, plus, she didn't get diaper changes somewhere besides home very often, etc.
At least she's getting some park time now, but it's a totally different upbringing for infants these days.
That's true about family's getting together on Sundays. I thought that you might have similar memories to mine on the phone calls.
I'm so happy for you on Kara and Josh coming over now!
We've had a setback with visiting. Ds is now exposed to people that he never was, such as a co-worker who has had corona, and is vaccinated, but also his mother just caught it. She can't be too old, because the guy is very early 20's. He has to drive the guy to jobs...sometimes a couple of hours each way, 2ce a week.
We just heard that someone else who Ds knows, and works at the gas station, plus is fully vaccinated, has been in the hospital with covid. He took the last available bed in the county. He thought that he'd be fine, because of being vaccinated, but when he got sick, he literally turned blue from lack of oxygen in his body, and was hospitalized.
Also, there are issues with ddil's mother and people at her house, plus her seeing the baby 2-3 times a week.
Anyway, he now won't come in the house with all of this going on, except in the back room through another door, to get his equipment. I appreciate him thinking about his dad and I with our health issues, but I also miss seeing the baby like we were doing. That's why it will be nice to talk to her on Zoom, or whatever Ds signs up for. Now *that's* cool new technology! Can you imagine having had something like that back when?
Ds has stepped up sending photos, though, I have to admit! They may not be the kind that you blow up or send on Christmas cards, but I love getting them. Like a photo of her eating a piece of pizza that he made...sauce all over! ...climbing a slide in their living room (Little Tykes, type.), standing on a tree stump in the yard, or eating a muffin that I made and sent home to her. (It was an apple muffin.)
I'm sorry that you didn't get any rain. I was so hoping, when we got some, that you would too.
I hope that you have a great week!
Love All Life; Thank You For Posting! :)
