Badger Climbs a Cathedral and Other Saturday Doings

 James LOVES to play in the car.  After we went out for breakfast, I took him to my car while his parents finished eating in peace.  He was a happy little wild guy today.  He was into everything at the breakfast table!  SO funny!
 Speaking of breakfast, I had this hobbit meal two days in a row!  I love mushrooms.
 The fruits above were hanging over a fence when I was walking to the bank.  Aren't they rosy?  
 Here is the least weedy area in the garden.  The pumpkin plant has produced two pumpkins so far.  Happy Halloween!
 My journaling Bible came!  I LOVE it.  I've been snuggling in with it, reading and writing.  Favorites.
 Bill won't be home until tomorrow so I drove over to pick up James this morning.  He was still a bit droopy at 6:30 am.
Before long he was busy in the Wendy house.
 And digging in the dirt!
 Now, you MUST go over to Chels and see Badger!  He climbed a cathedral!  He began all of his adventures in Taiwan last fall.  Here he is begging for a cuppa at Yiping's house.  Ha!
Can you believe all the fun this little rascal has had so far?  He can't go to France because his hostess is taking a bloggy break at the moment, so after he goes to Kezzie's he'll be flying to America to begin his continental tour here.  
Thank you for coming by today.  I'm feeling a lot better and I'm sorry that I was sick and got so little accomplished this week.  Somedays I feel like I should go, go, go and other days I am perfectly peaceful about my lazy ways.
I have to finish All the Light We Cannot See for book club and it's not a quick read.  It's VERY good, though.
I bought two new tablecloths at Homegoods and I just might use all my ironing skill to press them today and put them on the two tables in the living room and dining room.  
Jenny just called and the girlies are coming over for a while.  The parents must do some birthday shopping for Plum Cake who will be THREE this month!
Wee!  Chicken nuggets for lunch!  Ha!

Seems like you get a lot done even when you aren't feeling well. How nice of you to help out with the littles so parents can have a few quiet moments. That Badger really gets around. I'd love to be visiting a cathedral today. Have a lovely weekend!

It sounds like a perfect Saturday. So many fun things going on. James is just adorable. I bet he likes getting to play in the dirt. Your Bible looks wonderful.
So does your garden. I love all of the happy things growing there not to mention pumpkins. So glad Bill is coming home tomorrow. Have a fun day with your girls.

The Journaling Bible looks interesting. And you have such pretty handwriting, by the way.

Granny Marigold said...

Yes, I also noticed how lovely your handwriting is. I think those of us with poor handwriting always notice.

Those are apples hanging over the fence I believe. And that reminds me that I still have quite a few of those we went picking to slice and freeze. Off to work I go ( instead of sitting in front of my computer).

Badger certainly is getting around isn't he!! xx

Julia said...

I love sauteed mushroom and zucchini and a little piece of steak or garlic chicken to go with it and I'm in heaven.

I love your Bible journal and I can see why you love it too. Yo have a lovely handwriting.

That little boy is adorable.
Have a lovely long weekend.

James has been a cutie since the day he was born. Hope you all enjoyed your chicken nuggets!


Kezzie said...

My pumpkin plant which grew up all on it's own in the front garden only as two pumpkins as well.
Your garden is beautiful.

We've always called our little place Plum Hill Ranch because of all the wild plums, and we're on a hill! So your picture of the plums reminded me of all the plum jam and jelly I've made over the years. A good memory! I love your journaling Bible. Wish mine had more space in the margins, but I love the Giant Print!
Looks like little James had a passel of fun at your place. :)
Glad to see that Badger's on the move. I hope he's getting closer to my house!
I'm going to go visit him now. ;)
