Someone asked for rain and we got it in buckets this weekend. We were still able to have a good time and accomplished several jobs that needed to be done around the old house.
I started to organize my pantry and take an inventory. Officially, I have 5 cans of pumpkin, three cans of water chestnuts, four cans of assorted pineapple and 4 jars of jelly. I know, why? I had to throw out some expired goods and put all my baking paraphernalia together.. Stop me if I ever want to buy a paper cupcake liner or lolly pop stick. It's a good time to get things in order before the birthdays and holidays start. This kind of project just starts other projects, Cleaning the area of overflow groceries in the laundry room. Organizing my bags, wraps and foils... All while doing the laundry, paying a bill, writing a list and remembering to post something on the blog today. I am not sure where this burst of activity came from, but I know to ride the wave. The older I get, the fewer and further between come these days when I do EVERYTHING. There is satisfaction to be tired from all the activity, and the thrill of opening my pantry and not being crushed by the contents. Mom and Dad used to tell us about Fibber McGee's closet. It was a radio show, but whenever they opened the closet, you heard a great crash as everything fell out. Mom and Dad are on my mind and in my heart today, their anniversary.
Penny is on her second month of kindergarten. She has great stories to tell and has made many new friends. This girl has quite a social calendar, many birthday parties and now Daisy's, the tiniest of Girl Scouts. She was so excited to wear her new winter coat to school this first cold morning. This school thing is getting in the way of fun and frolic with Grandma and Grandpa. Gone are the days of taking her out of preschool for the afternoon, or the week. We still have pumpkins to hunt and jack o lanterns to carve. Penny has her Halloween costume, it's a character from a Disney show called the Descendants. The Descendants are the children of Disney characters like Captain Hook and Ursula.
It's all very cool and not at all Daniel Striped Tiger. Where did our baby go?
Thanks for stopping by and for your friendship.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
