1 - Starting the day off right building a train track with Curious George on in the background.
2 - I took the kids to the $1 kids' movies at The Landing. It was the first "real" movie experience for both of them. Their review? Two little thumbs up for "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything."
3 - I probably need to get a life, but I'm so excited about my new iron I got for my birthday. And yes, it's what I wanted. I love my awesome stainless-steel/super-steamy/self-cleaning/cord-retracting/anti-drip/three-hundred-hole/super-heavy-duty Rowenta!
4 - Count the diapers - there are 8 left. To potty train or not? Costco diapers are hands down my favorite, so if I decide to hold off on Lydia, I'll need to buy another giant box...soon!
5 - This is unusual...Seth napping. The movie really took it out of him!
6 - Making a t-shirt quilt for Matt's cousin. It's been a few years since I made mine, and I forgot how much fun it is!
7 - My Christmas cactus hasn't bloomed even a little for the past 3 years, and a month after I move it from the dining room table to the mantel, out come the blossoms!
8 - Almost finished with another great read.
9 - Took a quick trip to the library to avoid overdue books and to get some new ones. Before we go home, the kids like to climb on the friendly concrete turtle outside.
10 - Surprise garlic in the herb garden with their puffy purple blossoms!
11 - Tuscan pizza grilled outside for dinner. I wish I could say the tomatoes are from our garden, but at least the basil is!
12 - I was about to get ready to water the garden when I heard the familiar whsssshhhh of cars driving by on wet roads. Good rain storm for a little bit makes for nice, cool sleeping weather.
