Catching Up

My house is clean, I don't have to cook (hubby and son are at the lake) so, maybe, I can catch up our blog.

First, Kayty was invited to become a member of Phi Theta Kappa, a Jr. College Honor Society...We are just so pleased. She loves her college classes and works very hard!!

Next, Kayty had another very wonderful performance with the choirs she is a member of on March 12.

For our St. Patrick's Day celebration, a leprechaun had walked across our refrigerator, but since there were SO MANY QUESTIONING UNBELIEVERS, no loot was left. We did eat an Irish dinner, corned beef, red potatoes, cabbage salad...but Nathan is too American, and complained all evening that it made him sick. Kayty and I did make festive Green Rice Krispy Treats, which Nathan had no problem eating!!. We also had green M&M's to snack on (hey, I remember Nathan munching on too many M&M's years ago - May 25, 2001, I seem to recall, and ruining his sister's wedding pics because he was laying on the stage of the cultural hall, in between barfing sessions. I think I see a pattern here!)

We have now entered the 21st century and are having both a solar water heater, and solar power system installed. It should save us quite a bit! Here is our water heater panel.

We have a "special" person in charge of our installation. He is very knowlegdeable, but I cannot get over how much he looks like an Oompah Loompah from Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (lacking only the orange complexion).


Finally, we celebrated Doran III's 25th birthday on Friday (actual birthday was Saturday, but Mr. Popularity was far too booked for us!) Happy 25th, Doran!
