♡ ♡ ♡ ♡62 degrees this morning, with a little fog around, but mostly sunny with a few clouds. I had a random walk around town.
4th of July is a big thing around my town and this morning people were out getting things ready. The fire trucks were getting washed, picnic tables and bleachers were put up behind the fire house. The mowers were out and the weed trimmers too.
I saw a few others out walking and a runner as well. Lots of activity so early in the morning.
I walked 6.3 miles.
♡ ♡ ♡ ♡Tomorrow morning should be even busier. The parade tomorrow morning is a GREAT parade, especially for a small town. People come from all over and get here early to mark out their viewing spot along the road.
Sometimes your day isn't the one you had planned. Today was like that. Ken left this morning the same time that I did to go to church to pick up the church bus. Pastor Grant (youth pastor) was going with Ken so Ken could finally take the driving part of the test to get his bus license.
I had planned on being home today and getting a lot of stuff done around the house. I had laundry started. One load on the line the other in the washer. Had cookies to bake a three bean salad to make and then I had to get some house cleaning done.
9:30 Ken called and said he had good news and bad news. Good news was he passed the first two parts of the driving test. Getting the safety check list done and parking, backing up and general stuff that could be done in the parking lot.
The bad news was that just as Ken was to do the actual road driving part of the test, the bus starting squirting stuff out from under the hood and he couldn't finish the test.
It's a long story but I had to drive the truck with Ken's tools to the MVA which is down in LaVale. After much traveling around to stores we finally got the part to fix the bus and Ken fixed it.
Even though the road part of the driving test would have only taken 15 minutes, the driving inspector wouldn't let Ken finish the test today. So he had to make another appointment for May 18. (see below) He will only have to take the road part though.
While we were down in LaVale we had lunch with Pastor Grant at Long John Silvers. I then drove the truck back home and Ken and Pastor Grant drove the bus back.
Driving home I went through 2 storms, each one only lasting about 10 minutes. I thought oh no, my clothes hanging on the line are getting soaked but when I got home, it had never rained here.
I have made the Three Bean Salad and finished my laundry but that's all that's getting done today.

Happiness is an attitude.
We either make ourselves miserable,
or happy and strong.
The amount of work is the same.
Three Happy Things Today
- Ken passed two thirds of his test
- He was able to fix the problem with the bus
- We got to eat lunch out
EDIT: I don't know why I typed MAY 18,
I meant to type JULY 18.
