This week has been a flurry of activity with wine making and candy making. Aside from a few taste tests of the candy dough, I’ve been really good about not imbibing in all the creations I’ve made this week. Of course that doesn’t mean I won’t imbibe this weekend. I think I’ve earned it.
When he left barely two hours earlier, he said he was going to try to get home early. ‘Early’ in my mind is 3 or 4. But before 11 am? Way too early. I can never get anything done with constant interruptions and the hovering, so I had to toss aside getting anything done that day. Which then just made Wednesday even more hectic. Especially since Hovering Hubby went to work late on Wednesday. Some days I sure wish he had a ‘normal’ schedule, instead of the mish-mash he has. I’d get so much more done.
Who knew puppies would like pumpkins? I guess I should have put these on the front porch and the smaller ones on the back porch. Live and learn.
Papa came for a visit on Saturday – Princess Nagger wanted to show him her Furby Family and wanted to do a ‘card trick’ for him. She kept saying, “Pick a card, any card!” but held out the cards with one prominently sticking out and wouldn’t let him pick any card except that one:
After Papa left, Princess Nagger decided to try on Dada’s cowboy boots. She clunked around in them for quite awhile:
I still haven’t had a chance to decorate the back porch yet – Mother Nature has been uncooperative and sending us damp, cold weather. Yesterday I did my bi-monthly grocery shopping in the rain. The ‘high’ for yesterday and today? 40 degrees. Fun times. Especially since I couldn’t dress too warmly because the moment the air cools down, the stores tend to crank up the heat. Doing marathon shopping in sauna conditions doesn’t bode well. So I wore capris and a t-shirt with a jean jacket. I got lots of funny looks about my ‘warm weather attire’ on a cold blustery rainy day. But I didn’t get overheated, so that’s all that mattered.
Princess Nagger is off school today. She wants to go on a dinosaur hunt, particularly to look for what she calls ‘Dinosaur Goo’. It’s goopy stuff in a container that has a dinosaur in the middle of it. We found some at Target, but they were all gone the last time we were there. So she’s requested a trip to Target to look again, and if they’re not there, Toys R Us. Wish me luck.
Princess Nagger Conversation of the Week:
Helping Princess Nagger get dressed for school yesterday, I picked out a pair of pink and brownish-tan camouflage jeans, pink top and soft brown and pink hoodie.
PN: “Ooooh! Sean’s going to love me today because he loves camouflage. Maybe he will even marry me!”
Me: “Marry you? I thought you married Luke this summer in Louisiana?”
PN: “Oh, yeah, well, that was Louisiana. I want to marry Sean in Pennsylvania.”
Me (laughing): “Uh, I don’t think that’s how that works. Besides, what does Sean think of your plan?”
PN: “Oh, he said he doesn’t want to marry me, but I’ll change his mind.”
Me: “Don’t rush into anything, you have plenty of years before that can happen.”
PN: “Do these pants have pockets?”
Me: “Yes, they do.”
PN (checking the depth of the pocket with her hand): “Oh good, I can take a dinosaur to school in my pocket.”
Me: “Which one are you planning to take with you?”
PN: “I won’t forget it at school. I better not put it in my pocket horns down, though.”
