There was only one injury which can be directly related to work on the deck. One evening as we were eating dinner, I looked out to see my kitty figurine sitting in the chair on the deck. I remarked that it looked cute sitting there. It normally sits on the deck, near the plants. Alan asked me where I originally got the kitty. I thought that was sort of an odd question. Then he admitted that he had accidentally stepped on it's tail and broken it. You know, I actually felt sort of sad about it and went out to take a look. I think we do get a little too attached to things sometimes. :) Sure enough, the kitty now has a hole in her tail. The funniest part of the story is what Jadyn said. "Mom, I have an idea! Glue!!" I thought it was so funny. So here's a photo of kitty. Her tail will indeed be glued soon.
Here are some things we did this morning. If I didn't have a 3 year old, I would not be able to do these things. I am a lucky mom.
I drew her hand, and she drew mine on her Doodle board. Who knew that my pinkie looked like a goose head??
I was a princess. "Mom, I need you to wear this crown." Photo of crown only. I was still in jammies, and slept with damp hair. It would not have been a pretty photo. The crown is a bit tight for my head. I take it off when she's not looking. :) She comes back and says, "Mom, where's the crown? You 'posed to wear it!"
I was served pizza with my coffee at the computer. How many of you had such a delightful breakfast? :) The pizza was a nice change. I'm often served Duplo block candies.
We went to a Twins-White Sox game on Monday night. That was an unexpected and fun night out. Our friends shared free tickets and parking with us. It was fun to see a ball game and spend time with them. Here's a photo of us at the Dome.
This is a photo of Jadyn that I took last week. We were eating outdoors at a restaurant with family. Jadyn had a lot of fun out there. I took this photo because the color of her shirt almost matched this leaf.
