Potpourri

What a day! Up and off to work an hour early to make Friday easier for the full-timers. All in all, it didn't look to be too busy when I left so I hope their afternoon was comfortable.


The kiddo leaves for church camp on Monday. Whatever will I do? How will the house tolerate such silence? I'll be crying in my dishrag by Tuesday noon - you just watch and see. In talking about his upcoming trip, I asked him if he wanted me to cut his hair or take him somewhere. He's not used to having a say-so and looked at me with those gorgeous blue eyes and said, "Take me somewhere. I'd like to go to a professional." I must've grinned for he looked me in the eye, leaned in and whispered conspiratorially, " 'Cause you're a N-O-V-S-I-E....a novice." *chuckle* Yes, folks, we homeschool. Hey, the vocabulary is there! I haven't emphasized spelling too much, but we'll be working on it a lot this year. And I had planned to do so before being declared a NOVSIE. So there. lol

Speaking of the boychild, he wants his room to look like a laboratory! So here's what I came up with for his closet door. The brown squares are cork.

The pup-a-lup has discovered that there is very little in life that equals a (clean) old shop rag tied into a knot. She tosses it, chews on it, teases the boy with it, and will most certainly sleep with it tonight. She is quite the character. See?!

Hi Kimberly!!!

Thanks for visiting me. Your blog is very sweet! Everything is wonderful with me; I'm just very busy as a friend and I are getting a business off the ground. I haven't blogged about it yet, as I'm not quite ready to divulge all the details. I appreciate your concern ;0)

Please keep checking back though. I haven't given up on blogging. I just have to make it fit into my schedule...

Lovin' the door! Countdown to "D" day is winding down. (Camp) I can always stop by and let the kiddos make some noise for ya before we head home in the afternoon. :-)
