Boy, oh boy. Did we ever have a rough night. First the wind howled unbelievably loudly...both TDH and I were awakened. Stuff was blowing all over. THEN, we had the thunderstorm of the year.
It cracked and lightning'ed (word?) for the longest time. I expected scared little girls to crawl in with me, but apparently jumping on Uncle D's trampoline rendered them senseless for the night. So I think I'm going to need a nap today.
Lush...and Letty...the nerve. Trying to start a war. What if we refuse to rise to the bait? What if we just ignore you and ask about Wabby's garden and Sugar Plum's birthday cake? Or even wish Kiwi well on her excellent sailing adventure. There's so much more to talk about than your pedestrian little topic.
Bagz...we miss you. Post away, Eastern Canadian Timmy-visitor. We're with you. Say hi to my auntie Evelyn, will you? I'd love to come out there and visit her someday. It costs more to fly out East from here than it does to fly to Europe!
Speaking of Europe, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SUGAR PLUM! What kind of cake are you baking? Are the new French doors your birthday present from DH?
Enjoy your day. You are the queen of the threads today. Parental units are presently in the air, returning from Munchen and probably bagged. I will pick them up at the airport and chauffeur them home this afternoon. Sounds like they had a marvelous time. Denmark with your folks? Sounds great. A good friend of ours from University days is from there, he makes wonderful pastry (how typical), designs teak furniture, and had grandparents in the Resistance. Such a stereotype there never was. He showed me picutres of Tivoli (must go!) and Legoland. I'm in. It would be a fine visit. Oh! And Danish ribs. MMMMM.
The job looks hopeful, I got a second interview next week when the president returns from visiting his sick father in Ontario. (Triple bypass surgery--eep) I hope it turns out. Looking for childcare (before and afterschool) in the neighbourhood, don't want to ask my mom (I know she'd do it!) because I want her to be free to enjoy her retirement. She's already done the childrearing thing. Although I know she'd love to be with them, it might be better not to go there.
Ou est la Peche?
Frappe, dearest, so sorry about the dental surgery! Ow!
We wish you a speedy recovery and hope you don't suffer too much more. That codeine is something else, isn't it?
How's every other little thing in your life? DH working? DD still living in her own pad? Other kids still delightful? Bugsy growing more obedient and lovable with every passing day?
Bon voyage, Kiwi! You will have a great time. Just know it.
Wabby! How goes it? Are you washing at the laundromat today? Too bad you can't post. But you can have a cool one and read tattered magazines while you launder. That doesn't sound too bad, put that way. Hope you don't melt.
