I cleaned the house again this morning and then around 11:45am Leslie took me back to her late father-in-law's house to finish up the gardening/yard work. The bins from last week had been emptied so I was free to fill them up again, this time mostly with lawn clippings and leaves. Mowing the lawn was not a treat. It's apparently ant infested and I kept having to stop and brush ants off me every couple minutes. Plus, just knowing there have been ants crawling up your legs (thankfully I was wearing pants) makes you feel as if they're all over you - sometimes they had made it all the way up my legs and sometimes it was my imagination. Anyway, by about 3pm I had filled both the bins back up so I texted Leslie and she asked if I could walk back because she was baking banana bread. As most of you know, I'm directionally challenged, so I wasn't sure if that was such a good idea, but I told her if she gave me directions I'd give it a shot. Thankfully we'd driven there twice before, so, with her directions and my memory, I was able to make it back without any major mishaps. Torrey, one of the Pastors at church called last night and invited me to a BBQ celebration after the baptisms on Sunday. Hopefully I can at least make the service, but I'd love to go to the BBQ as well. I had yesterday off so I'm not sure if I could have most of Sunday off as well or not. I think Dorthy and her husband are watching the boys on Sunday, so I would think it shouldn't be a problem, but who knows.
In other news, I finished my first book and thought that in light of my interest in random facts and my present residence in Australia, that this book might be a good read.
