Hello! How are you today? We are good, and have had a busy but fun day so far. It began when we took the children to Crackerbarrel for breakfast, which was where Ethan took this picture of me and my little ones.
About my yellow shirt: Many years ago, when I was about 14 or so, I had a favorite *mustard colored* sweater that I always wore with a magenta skirt. (smiles) Consequently, when I saw this yellow shirt I had to have it, because it reminded me of that sweater. But, really, its those little faces in the photo, that get me. This is probably the best picture I have of Sarah and Seth, with their mama.
After a good hearty breakfast and two cups of coffee, Rich decided he would work on a house project and we better go to the Home Depot. Our kitchen faucet has been acting up. It was a flimsy metal one and was starting to leak. So we went to Home Depot to pick out a new one…and, as often happens, when you look at new faucets you come to realize that what you really need is a new faucet AND a new sink! Oh, yes. I have married a handyman for sure. He is out there finishing up his work, installing a new sink and new faucet. He has kept Jacob and Ethan with him the entire time, teaching them things. I will be sure to share a picture on Monday because it will take that long to clean up the mess.
I was in the H.D. store for the important decisions but then the children and I left and waited in the vehicle. We thought it wouldn’t take long but I guess I still haven’t learned about MEN in HOME DEPOT. By the time he got back we were quite silly.
I took this picture on our way home. We were at a stop light.
We had bacon at Crackerbarrel which prompted Jacob to inform us, “We haven’t had bacon at home in a long time!” Well, that’s because I personally don’t like the M E S S of frying bacon. I’ve been getting the bags of real bacon bits at Costco and just freshening them up in a pan to use in recipes and egg sandwiches. I told him I would “Tell Cook to add it to the shopping list.” Rich overheard and said he thought BLT sandwiches would be great for lunch and not the “limp spinach type lettuce you usually buy, I want CRISP!” Rich doesn’t normally voice opinions over things like lettuce so I agreed. Sometimes you have to chose crispness over nutritional content.
I went to the store while the little ones took naps and the big ones worked on the Big Sink Project.
I forgot to say that we bought our bacon and sour dough bread at Crackerbarrel.
I got a ball of iceberg lettuce and a big organic tomato at the grocery store. (Organic seems to taste so much better).
On the way home I stopped and got a dozen ears of fresh sweet corn.
We had our early supper and the corn was so good. So were the BLT’s. Rich said, as usual, we made a great combination. His idea was the sandwiches, mine was the corn. Perfect.
And um. Are the corn-cob holder things adorable, or what? My Aunt Mary gave them to me! This was the first time I used them.
Oh and I wanted to show you a picture of my new dress. It’s soft and heavy and swirly and I love it. Davy took the picture for me. It’s so nice to add some new pieces to my wardrobe after being pregnant and/or nursing for the last three years.
Happy Saturday! What’s happening in your neck of the woods?
Aren’t w e e k e n d s wonderful?
