"Full of Hot Air", a real treat

Our summer reading program consists of 1 hour in your own bedroom reading whatever you want and leaving me alone, then sitting on my lap at bedtime and reading them to me.  If I'm being honest, I'm a sour patch kid. (a little sour, then get it.)  We ran out of books within the first 5 days of vacation.  Hit the TP Library, hard.  This one's a real treat.

PS.  The cat page is for you Jen - Happy belated Birthday old friend! (that is to reference the age of our friendship, not your literal age)

Last Day of School

To give credit where credit is due - I saw this idea on and while they have me on the house, I think I might have one-upped the sign.  Toot toot! (That's me, tooting my own horn.  Sorry.)  Anyway, it was especially fun today as a couple of Henry's pals came home with us after their last day of school.  They all dug it...and then asked what I had waiting for them inside.  That was met with a disappointing, "well...nothing really." So I took them to the park.  Happy Summer all - hope yours does not disappoint!

Sport Saturdays

Thank you Henry for asking us to sign you up for every sport you hear about.  Thank you for giving us something to wake up for on Saturdays, something to do together, and someone extra hunky to root for.  We are all better for our sport Saturdays.  (photo: skateboarding before T-Ball at Heidelburg Playfield)

Artist: Henry Mack (age 5)
Said he saw these in a bug book at school and wanted to draw them.


I love a good thrift store find.  More than that, I love having something to hunt for.  Found these 80's metal earrings at Goodwill while looking for a le creuset lid handle (to replace the one that melted off my dutch oven).  Now have something new to hunt every color.

Here's to me!...again.

34 today.  Going to great lengths lately to turn back the clock.  Happy Monday.
