Time to Clean

So what am I doing instead?  Surfing the web.  I went to church today and visited with my friend Carol who is happy for me about the job, but hates that I’m leaving Canyon.  I then went to Amarillo to have lunch with Matthew.  It was a nice visit – but I think all the romance that was once there is gone.  We are just friends and that’s probably a good thing.  I went to the grocery store after that to get stuff for the 4th of July.  I’m going to make shrimp fettucine alfredo.  I came home and was completely exhausted so I took a nap.  I must have slept well because I was dreaming hard just before waking up.  Can’t really remember the dream much, but I think it was interesting. 

Our county has banned all fireworks because the area is so dry.  That means no fireworks show tomorrow night.  Instead, they have some kind of laser show planned.  Since I’m only two blocks from the park, I guess we will walk over and check it out.  My friend Kirsten is coming over and Matthew may come as well.  Josh’s friend and girlfriend may also be here.  That means I have to clean house – which is what I should be doing.  I did just tidy up the kitchen, but I need to wipe down the counters, sweep and mop.  Then I need to clean the living room – especially my desk.  I did at least throw the couch cover in the washer.  I also need to clean my room tomorrow and catch up on laundry.  I need to wash my bedding and all the clothes that I took on my trip. 

Speaking of clothes – I got a very nice compliment from a stranger while I was in San Antonio.  I was at Barnes and Noble and a guy told me that he really liked my outfit and that it looked nice and summery.  That just made my day. 

We are about to get hit with some storms – thank goodness!  We certainly need the rain.  I’m sure there will be people that will violate the firework ban so hopefully the rain will help a little.
