All the necessities are close by in our neighborhood. The bakery/coffee/lunch restaurant is a short walk, but Millie and I drove down to meet James and Christie for a mid-morning snack on Wednesday (second breakfast/elevenses). I CAN walk to the grocery store, the post office box, the bank, the library, and the nursing home. I figure these places are my community. Even in a big city, we can find a small section of blocks to call our own, don't you think?
Christie was at the library with James when he said, "FOOD!" so she figured he was hungry! Ha ha ha! Silly little bug!
Millie said she didn't want the luscious mac and cheese so she had a grilled cheese. She looked at it when it came and said, "I changed my mind." Somehow I convinced her to eat her sandwich and then she finished off James's mac! Funny!
Remember that I went to my mom's H20 at Home party? I bought this laundry ball. It has little beads in it and you are supposed to give the ball a four hour sunbath and then it really interacts with dirt so you don't have to use very much laundry soap. It works!
I'm reading this book again. I love the writing/the story. Have you read it?
Plum Cake came over for dinner because her parents went out and Sam was visiting a school friend. Excuse my messy counters (vitamins, glass cleaner, junk) but isn't she cute? She was helping make salad.
After dinner we took her beep beep to the park.
I'm going to bore you with another radish photo. They are SO gorgeous! The radishes in Washington were various colors but ours are just rosy radish red!
James wanted to play in the "garden" I mean the dirt!
All children need barbecue-flavored potato chips while they watch Little Einsteins. Don't you think so?
We had a sleepover on Saturday night! We played with Play Doh, painted with watercolors, and watched movies. Actually going to sleep was tricky and I was tired the next day!
The grass is starting to turn green! Woot! Woot!
I added strawberries to our green salad last night. YUM!
Angel in the Garden and Betty the Wood Fairy told me about this book and it came the other day. It's VERY cheerful and artsy!
I bought these to refresh our grandkid art supplies. THEY SMELL SO DELICIOUS.
I found a birdie bargain at the grocery today. When I paid for my prescription (cream for an annoying rash I've been battling) the pharmacy worker said, "You have earned $25 worth of groceries!" My reward made me feel less silly about buying two garden birds. They are going to stay inside. Bill likes them, too!
Here is a cheery smile for you! I hope you are having a happy Monday!
Did you watch Downton Abbey last night? One more episode - the last! I loved it last night and I am looking forward to reading what Susan Branch has to say about it. She blogs about DA.
Take care, kind visitor! Bye-ee!
