A ringing telephone woke me before the alarm went off this morning. G-son on the other end announcing he was on his way. I forgot that #1 son told me yesterday that he went on winter hours now and would be bringing him earlier.
After getting him settled in with his breakfast I took my time getting ready for the day in the darkness of the morning.
After dropping him at school I got chores done and had a regular Tuesday morning of laundry and housework.
Just after lunch got a call from #1 son telling me I didn't need to pick up g-son today as he had gotten sick at school when his other g-ma went to have lunch with him. She had taken him home to check his fever to see if he needed to go to the doctor.
I called later to check on him and he seemed fine,maybe just a "need to leave school" tummy ache.
I spent some time this afternoon transfering September photos to a website to preserve them in case of a computer crash.
I also spent some time at the sewing machine catching up all the things I have cut out.
I finally got this other "curtain" apron sewed up. I sold the first one I made several weeks ago. This is made from the tiers of a set of kitchen curtains I bought and only needed the valance for my window.
As I went out the front door to go on my evening walk I noticed these "morning" Glories have become "evening" Glories lately on these dreary cloudy cool days.
It's nice to have a day with nothing planned once in awhile. I decided to go through some books and use the long old wooden tool box from the estate sale several weeks ago to display them in.
I also discovered four really old books that are copyrighted in the late 1800's.
The 2 larger books are volumes describing the 1893 World's Fair, the Columbian Exposition.
The dark gray books are 2 volumes of the works of John Lothrop Motley . Volume 11 is his personal account of the Civil War starting July 1, 1861.
Although pretty valueless according to the internet I still love these old volumes and the stories they tell. And for me it is hard to believe the printing and make-up of these books that was in use in the 1800's. Love the ragged edges of the thick heavy pages.
Had a relaxing evening and headed for an earlier bedtime to make up for the earlier wake-up calls.
Grateful to God for His love for His children each day.
Good Night and God Bless.
