Well, it was a beautiful day here with a warm temp of 86....Suppose to be 90 tomorrow...UGH!...Lets just say that last night I closed the windows and the air has officially come on for the summer...Yes, it has come on!!!

It was a busy day and then we left right after 4:00 for a 2 hour drive to the funeral home for the viewing..

We were told he was being cremated and I knew it would make it easier on Tim..Then we found out last night that he hasn't been..

I sat off with one of his aunts the entire time....Every once in a while I'd hear someone say "That's Boyd son"....."That's Tim".....


But tomorrow there will be much more family there...Boyd was one of 11 children....Tim's aunt Louise will be there...I have always loved Louise...She always showed us such kindness when we'd visit her in our early years of marriage....She gave me a beautiful strawberry quilt as a wedding gift...I mentioned to her that I had seen some quilts on tables and she told to use mine as a table cloth...I remember saying really quick.."Oh,No!... Something will get spilled on it!!..LOL...AWw!...I was so young and uneducated in the primitive ways!!...ha!....I will definitely be telling you more about Aunt Louise in the months ahead...After talking to her the other night I realized how much I'd missed her all these years...And let me add...She has the MOST AWESOME PRIMITIVE HOUSE!!!...Absolutely primitive...The first primitive house I'd ever been in and definitely influenced my decorating ....But more on that later...

So tomorrow we will make the drive again to be there by 3:00 for the service....My parents are meeting us there to take care of Luke, so I can sit with Tim in the service...They are driving 2 hours also....So we will meet in the middle...

So in the meantime I'm up waiting for Taylor to get home from Atlanta with a group of church friends that went to Six flags today...So I guess l need to get things organized for tomorrow and decide on what to fix for lunch.....Tim will go to prayer time and church services and hopefully I will have everything ready to go and lunch ready when he gets home so we can leave soon afterwards...That is the plan anyway!..I pray the day goes smoothly!

I hope you all have a blessed and restful Sunday!!....hugs,Jen

P.S. I started typing this,and since then Taylor has come home and I've been laughing at her stories about the day....I might get in the bed if I can get Taylor to go to bed so I can finish this post...LOL....HA!...NO, she's still talking!!!......
Ok...she said she was going to bed so I would stop talking about her on my blog....Goodnight Taylor!!.....LOL
Goodnight everyone!
