We had a nice weekend. It involved a high school football game. (win!)
Watching soccer for daughter #2 with daughter #1 (tie!)
Putting together four new stools for the kitchen counter. It involved my friend the allen wrench again. And I must admit that I put the whole contraption on upside down the first time and had to re-do 16 very small screws (insert sigh).
Lisi was very impatient with my project and tried every distraction tactic she knows.
I spread some joy at Target this weekend. At the store, daughter #2 and I were walking by some lounge chairs. You know the kind that look like this:
Then there were other parts to the weekend that were so helpful and encouraging and there are no words or pictures to sum it up.
Did you know sweet potatoes can go bad? One smelled a bit 'musty' when I peeled it. Then I cooked it up with a bunch of others. Then I mashed them and put some butter and brown sugar and vanilla and a touch of cream. Put it all in the nice serving dish and it smelled... musty. I tasted it. Musty. Ick. One bad potato can spoil a bunch of them. If you want to think deeper on that, you are welcome to.
I was put on hold and some really jazzy hold music came on. I put it on speaker phone and the MYP all came running to see why mom was listening to such fun stuff. Then one of the MYP asked, 'when we put people on hold, do they hear that too?'. Um. No. I guess I haven't put anyone on hold lately to find out.
Please don't keep clicking refresh on Thursday to see if I've posted Thursday thoughts. You see my thoughts won't be about blogging or Thursdays or anything like that this week. But Musings will be here in another week! Hopefully, they are more profitable than these were today.
Well I best get out of my pj's in case the phone rings again with someone else claiming to have our cat.
