Another late post to the blog. Man I am slipping or what ?
Yesterday was Gavin's last day home before heading back to college.
A typical day in Jenkins house during the summer.
This day in history "Mount Vesuvius near Pompeii, Italy, begins to erupt on this day in the year 79; within the next 25 hours, it wipes out the entire town. Hundreds of years later, archaeologists excavated Pompeii and found everything and everyone that had been there that day perfectly preserved by the volcano's ash.
Pompeii, about 90 miles south of Rome, was established in 600 B.C.E. in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, which stood approximately 6,500 feet high. Apparently, no one was aware that Vesuvius was an active volcano, even after an earthquake in February of the year 63."
After work, I hand off the car to Gavin so he can go for a run up at Sachem East....he and his friends have been meeting there all summer.
Paella on the menu at the request of Gavin. We wait for him to come home and shower before we devour.
A spider is spotted while eating dinner outside.
Gavin and I start packing the car tonight. I check the Keurig box for spiders before putting in coffee Kcup, and snacks.
Luke has been asking for movie night, so he has "The hunger games" lined up for after dinner. We are not really hungry, but have popcorn and nachos.
Movie time starts late, as Gavin and I run to Walmart for a TV....well not really run...we drive. the 'el cheapo' that Gavin told me saw in an ad or online at Walmart was not there. Not wanting to disappoint Gavin and his roomie, I spring for a new 32" VIZIO. I sense early birthday present.
After family movie night Gavin and I head up first...we have a 530am alarm set...

We let this spider stay outside in the hopes that it eats its share of mosquitoes. Gavin got a mosquito bite while eating dinner...
