While I was looking at the real estate For Sale site the other day, Miss Chompy came in and asked what I was doing. I said, I’m looking for a house that I can live in someday.
Pointing to the home on the computer screen, she said, “That one’s nice. You should buy it.”
I said, “Yeah, but I have to save up a ton of money first. Even small houses cost a lot.”
She got all excited and ran out of the room calling back, “Don’t worry, Grammy. I’ll help you!”
The sweetheart came back with the penny jar and this sign.
So, it April, and we have our green leaves and budding trees and flowers popping up all over the place and POOF!
We get this.
At first we thought that it was just a flukey little fly-by storm…
but it just kept stopping and starting, over and over…
for two days!
I just kept thinking, “Oh, sure. NOW it snows.” Just when we’ve given up on any winter and started wearing flip flops.
Don’t get me wrong–our poor mountains can use the snow pack–we’ll take it. But we watched for snow. We begged for snow. We prayed for snow…3 months ago.
Mother Nature has a wicked sense of humor.
My sweet Beany has not been feeling so good for the last few days.
You know, sleeping a lot.
Thinking about sleeping a lot.
Now and then he will take a long drink of water, but not too much in the way of actual food.
I’m beginning to wonder if he remembers our deal.
Do you remember Beany?
I love you with all my might…
and you just live forever.
I think that’s fair.
A soothing moldable dough that will give children a sensory experience and help them calm down at the same time. Where was this magical thing when I was raising kids?
Found it on Growing A Jeweled Rose. Can’t wait to try it for the grand-littles. I can see it now…
“Here my darlings. Play with this lovely…smushy…comforting dough…ZZZZzzzzzzzzzz.”
