Good News, Bad News

The good news is sister Jody in flying in today for a week-long visit. The bad news is her plane arrives at 10 p.m. when I like to be in my jammies.

The good news is this gets me to putting the house in better shape. The bad news is there is a lot that needs shaping up.

The good news is I've got the A/C pumping. The bad news is Jody does not like heat and we are hot.

The good news is Jody will automatically dead head my flowers. The bad news is my "field" of African daisies is on it's way out.

The good news is that the jasmine starting blooming in the past few days. The bad news is that the citrus isn't.

The good news is we will laugh and laugh and laugh (just like when Cindy and Skippie were here). The bad news is we may just dampen our drawers...if you know what I mean.

The good news is I have a blog to keep in touch with family and friends. The bad news is I must be insecure because I'm sad so few readers bother to comment. Could you boost me up a bit please?

I'm blessed with loving family. Now that is really good news.

I read! I'm just a lazy commenter. Have fun with Jody! Tyler said hi to me the other day on Facebook, and it made my day.

Love you.
Have fun with your sister!

Rachel said...

I am a lazy commenter too:) Sisters are the best! ENJOY!

Jody said...

Ready or Not here I come! love you. I have my own citrus tree in my bedroom to smell everyday as it continues a non stop bloom!

Cindy said...

MarySue . . . the bread is DELICIOUS! Thanks so much for sharing your talents (and love) with me. Your visit late last night was the cherry on top of my birthday sundae.

I'll be listening for loud, raucous laughter--sisters having fun. Enjoy!!

Have fun with Jody and I look forward to reading more about your family visiting.

I love your blog, but what comment can I add to a woman who educates me with her brillant posts. Keep up the blogging. I LOVE IT!

I will repeat to make my point:

I am so envious that Jody is coming down. I know, I know, I already had my time and it was wonderful, it just wasn't enough---never is. I do hope you eat outside in the evenings and smell the jasmine. I see that its hot, hot, hot---but that makes the pool all the more inviting. Love to both my sisters, can't wait till we're all together again this summer. Love, big sister Cindy

Trevlyn said...

Just another of my MANY comments ;) to say "Yay! Jody's coming!!!"

My sister just left Monday. Aren't they the best? We laughed and laughed (did not dampen drawers thankfully:) Have so much fun.

Sister Knight, it's Edee (Hawkley) Raines here. Do you remember me?
Anyway, I found your blog through Jenny and Trevlyn's blogs. I hope you don't mind that I read it!

I love your blog as well as Trevlyn's! It is a connection to Phoenix that we have so missed these past few years! I am not good at leaving comments, but know it brightens my day to read both your blogs!

I love your blog too! (I'm just too intimidated to comment!) Have a great time with your sister. I'm so jealous. Sister time is the best.

And thank you, as always, for being so kind to wish Paige a Happy Birthday. Our family sure loves you and will always be grateful for your endless thoughtfulness toward us.

Enjoy that jasmine. I think that is what heaven will smell like.

Have a blast with your sister, and laugh up a storm! Sisters are the best - whether biological or other. Glad to have you as an (other) sister! Enjoy your weekend.
