The cookout approaches


Well, we're halfway through the race, and Danica Patrick is hanging in there. There have been a few accidents, but it seems that no one has been badly hurt so far. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Some people say they want to see wipeouts, but not me. Many drivers have died, and it's no laughing matter.

Ken is still mowing, and the yard looks great! He weedwhacked around the pond and stuff, too, and it really makes it look nice. I've been tidying up inside a bit--I know Shane wouldn't care, but it's still nice to neaten things up a little--and I've got the baked beans ready to pop in the oven in about 15 minutes. I swept off the deck and sprayed for wasps, so I think we'll be able to eat outside with no major problems. I've got some iced tea made for Shane in case he doesn't want beer, and I made some fresh ice cubes (who knows how long the other ones had been in the freezer!). Aren't I the hostess with the mostest? Ha ha!

Wish y'all could come on by!

So is Ken not bothered about the race?  I think you are the hostess with the mostess and if we ever have a party here at J-land you should host it ;)
