Something Sunday

It was a lovely day today…a bit too cool for my liking, but positively balmy compared to so many places.  The week looks to be warming wonderfully to right around 80….then plunging precipitously on Thursday…just in time for my Little A’s birthday.

No worries, it will move indoors for Thursday and hopefully be warm again for his party on the weekend.

It is, of course, SuperBowl Sunday.  We used to watch it… okay, David watched it, sometimes some of the children watched with him, mostly I avoided all of it by staying in the kitchen making a mountain of snacks for hubby and the kids and then a special dinner and more snacks.  My only foray into the living room was to watch the Budweiser commercial.

This year… well, we don’t get tv any more, and even if we did none of us have any desire to watch the Patriots, who are beyond boring.  Poor David.  All the football fandom died with him.  However, there will be a couple of special after-supper snacks…just for fun.  And… watching the Budweiser commercial on the computer.  😀

Meanwhile…back on the ranch, or in this case at the old homestead…life goes on. I did weird and unusual things to the ‘stroganoff’ for supper…curious to see if they eat it based purely on my calling it by that name, lol.  Hey, ya work with what you’ve got 😉

(postscript… picky 7 yr old and suspicious 16 yr old just came through asking for seconds 😀 SCORE!)

The edits for Khyr will be completed tonight.

consider...:  Well…okay, my edits.  Next up…get a couple of beta read-throughs. Fix whatever they find….and in the meanwhile, work on my current wip, which is a fun mash up of eco-punk, fantasy, and who knows what else?  😀

Friday fun, friends, and family

Today was the last day of VBS.  It was fun! I worked in doing the kids’ crafts all week and we finished up with a great one where each child made a (faux) leather bound journal to take home.  They loved it, it was simple enough for smaller kids but left lots of room for creativity for the more advanced/artistic children.

Afterwards Merrill and DeeDee took me to Mellow Mushroom for pizza.  We ate out on the patio but along the wall, not near the big open windows.  A late afternoon storm blew in…watching the approach of this huge wall of black cloud was amazing and then… it was on us!  Rain poured.  Winds whipped the rain through the windows, customers grabbed their plates and ran for shelter.  We sat and enjoyed the mist blowing over us on this hot summer afternoon….and ate our pizza.  Of course, DeeDee frizzed and my hair sprang into a tight mess of wild curls….but it was wonderful.  Such fun.

Then tonight our Little A called and we talked for ages.  About how he expects the hammock swing to be waiting when he comes home.  How he’d like to have one where he is nooowww.  (hint hint)  😉  About the color of his life jacket (red and orange) and how much he needs a new trampoline when he comes home.  It was wonderful.

Now I am off to murder some monsters with Khyr.  So here is our Friday Fantasy and I hope some of ya’ll love it and see the fantasy it opens for us all….
