Today is Field Trip Day. I brought the camp chairs. It’s nice in the shade. Three more days to go, y’all.
Field Day was moved from last Friday to yesterday (the weather was supposed to be bad). So that’s done at last. I’ve got no photographic evidence since I sold snacks the entire time. Today is Ellie’s class’s End of the … Continue reading ?
It was Teacher Appreciation Week at school and there was a lot of cuteness. Cute stuff every day. Ramping up to personalized drink cozies. Today we finished the week with a Coffee Shop (us with a bunch of Krups machines) … Continue reading ?
Long time Pine Haven resident, Mama Armadillo, was seen in the pre-dawn hours yesterday morning leading this year’s four babies in a parade across the front porch. This afternoon the babies were spotted near the drive way snuffling and rustling … Continue reading ?
She (torties are girls) wouldn’t get in the teensy trap we found at Lowe’s this afternoon, but she did manage to make it into the garage. We’ve been leaving the garage door cracked for Tyler, resident mostly-feral, but right now … Continue reading ?
Like my new doormats? It was time for a change. It’s impossible not to smile out the way out the door! Washington (I’m sure he’ll get a new name) is over at a good friend’s house auditioning for the role … Continue reading ?
It was Book Fair Week at school. I’m worn out. But it does mean that the end of the school year is near – just two more events and then summer! I’m ashamed to tell you how many books we … Continue reading ?
Ellie is out in the office visiting Washington with her mini. She keeps texting me videos. Washington was up in a tree by the mailbox Saturday before last. I talked him into coming down but he ran away before I … Continue reading ?
As of Thursday afternoon sometime, our school was taken off fire watch. One more step towards accomplishing the primary goal of “Immediate Safety.” Secondary goals include: undeniably prove the pattern of neglect and make sure this neglect never happens again … Continue reading ?
Ellie made it to school. On time even – although I had to run her lunch by later. Our reasoning was this: It’s not like she wasn’t at school already during the fire watch. All the tests aren’t in but … Continue reading ?
The air quality tests for asbestos have been returned and the presence of asbestos is within the EPA’s “it’s all good” limits. Which is such a relief! I’m giddy glad that we aren’t all breathing through asbestos-lined lungs. The Big … Continue reading ?
Let me tell you just a little bit more about what’s going on here. Our town’s public elementary school is 90 years old. Which is neat because my grandmother went to school there and not so neat because it hasn’t … Continue reading ?
From the back porch. School has seven weeks left. Very very soon and I’ll be able to think about all kinds of things again. Yarn and knitting and the yard and other people’s blogs and what to do about school … Continue reading ?
Truman died today. He’d been acting sort of off for a few days – he was wearing his sad dog face. We thought it was his antibiotics, so he quit taking them. He still felt bad so he went to … Continue reading ?
My child is seven. Traditional Build-a-Bear + Moe’s trip. She made a cat of course! And she had a birthday party with a MAGICIAN. Which was pretty much the best thing ever. Even though her original magician ended up iced … Continue reading ?
I’m up early so that I could eat the last cannoli with my coffee and without judgement. It was so good I just had to share.
Free on Ravelry! All your stuffed friends can feel Christmasy in their new Santa hats! Insiders Notes: The white is O-Wool Balance Bulky. I held worsted acrylic doubled for the red – it was all I could find at the … Continue reading...
Are you a good witch or a bad witch? Which?
At the risk of turning this into a Girl Scout Daisy blog, I’ve got 12 minutes before I have to pack Ellie’s lunch and just want to share this because it went so well yesterday. Every Girl Scout Troop has … Continue reading ?
Michael and Ellie are both on a school field trip today. One of the other chaperones was sick so Michael has all the little girls in the class in his group. This really has me tickled. Since they are both … Continue reading ?
