First the important news: little Isaiah continues to improve. He is still in intensive care, and still has an I/V stuck in his arm, but he no longer has the feeding tube stuck into his nose. (Yes, he was somehow being fed through his NOSE!) Thank you so much for all your prayers, and keep those prayers coming, for once Isaiah is fully well there are plenty of other folks to pray for!
We woke up early, hoping that maybe that weather reports were wrong and it would be a nice day, but it was us who were mistaken. The rain started around 9:30, and got heavy before noon. Our plans to drive to Callaway Gardens were scuttled, and for a while it looked like we might get rained in all day, but after lunch the rain began to lighten up.
Hoping for the best, as we really wanted to get out of the house, we took a chance and went to Riverside Mall. It was drizzling when we got there, but after shopping at a store or two the rain stopped, and it didn't rain again all day.
The exciting news from the shopping trip was that Sweetie bought a dress at Talbots, and it was LESS THAN $30.00! We didn't realize Talbots had items marked down so dramatically, but now that we do know, Sweetie will be shopping there more often in the future.
Whilst shopping we met some of Sweetie's filipino friends, so we invited them over to our house. Next thing Grump knew a big batch of stinky fish was cooking on the oven range. Ugh! Rather than deal with the odor, he decided to go outside and cut the grass until it rained. It never did rain, so Grump got all the grass cut, and did some yard maintenace, (mostly weeding), besides.
In was quite a pleasant afternoon. Kuya had fun playing with his friend Mattie, Sweetie had a great time chatting in Bisaya with her friends, and Grump enjoyed spending an afternoon working in the yard without being hassled. And to top it all off, it wasn't bloody hot like it's been for the last three months.
