My girl spent the night with a friend of hers last night and so AJ and I were “baching” it (parentally speaking) today. We rode the motorcycle to church this morning (sorry, Miss O’Hara — had to wear jeans, but I did wear a very nice black long sleeved t-shirt with Harley-Davidson embroidered in pretty script over my left collar bone). We have so few opportunities to ride together because the little miss is too young to stay at home by herself, so we grab them when we can.
Church was okay, but the worship services are kind of getting to us. I can relate to one of Miss O’Hara’s laments — preaching’s great, but the song service — big sigh. I don’t know what we’re going to do. Pray for guidance, I guess . . . should we stay or should we go?
After church we rode over to a little restaurant on the San Bernard River and had lunch. We love this little restaurant — so casual, up on stilts on the bank of the river. Across the river is ranch land, so you see the cattle grazing across the water. Very peaceful. We both had an absolutely delicious gumbo with shrimp, crab, and sausage followed by a piece of pineapple pie. Okay, so I ate the pie, but I didn’t eat all the gumbo. AJ brought what was left of it home in a take-out container. He LOVES gumbo! Came home around 3:00 p.m. and I decided to take a little nap. I must have been wiped out because I woke up at 8:30 p.m.!
My girl was home from visiting her buddies at their house on the canal and so she got a shower and I fixed her a little dinner. She got a little pink — forgot her sunscreen, but I think she had a great time.
I’m going to go ahead and turn in for the night . . . it’s 11:30 p.m. and I figure I’ll get another good nap before I have to get up and go to a shutter installation.
It was a good day.
