Every spare piece of paper has been marked in this house, covered with squiggles and circles and polka dot creations that represent Humpback Whales and rainbows.
Running out of blank paper is the first thing I’m grateful for today; it’s disappearance is a sign of creative little hands.
While we’re on the subject, I’m also grateful for Sunday afternoon naps, and pine cone collections in the back of the Big Wheel.
Q had a doctor appointment this morning, but I rewarded myself for good behavior by going out and buying too many flowers and two cherry tomato plants.
Some People were not as excited as I was to be in the nursery, and chose an inconvenient time to desperately need to go to the bathroom. There were also many requests to “see” the fountain displays, which meant, “throw pieces of bark into the fountain and almost fall in”.
Nonetheless, all our woes were solved with a few six packs of annuals (for me) and sandwiches with goldfish crackers (for other people).
The boys played outside while I dug holes in the dirt, and they were quiet, happy, and did I mention quiet and happy?
Just because it’s Spring, here’s a picture of Q’s special bee, Rocky Rock. He was a dollar at Target, and he has been fertilizing and buzzing around.
In other news, I love salad, especially when it has fatty-fat-fat dressing on it. Yum!
I also am thankful for:
Evening BBQs with friends
Sprinklers that work
A husband who knows how to turn on the sprinklers that work
Blue pools under blue skies
Being asked what the “tele” in “telephone” means
Knowing how to use Google to find answers to random questions
