My Today

Today was a home day. No work. No sitters. No pre-school.

We stayed in our jammies a little while longer and played.

Some of us spent a few moments in time-out, but whatever.

This cannot be overstated: Save the big boxes. Today it was an office/clubhouse.

Last week it was a canoe.

(Homes can't get enough of his dinosaur jammies.)

These recent days have been gorgeous. The exact kind of days you'ns pined for back in late August.

Sunshiney and gilded and with a touch of crisp.

It's bike-riding weather, but you'd better grab your jacket.

I took this curiously-angled photo of my Salvation Army color-by-number.

Then I lounged on the couch for a spell.

But only for a spell, because Holy Cow! Something is ablaze outside my kitchen window!

Turns out, our Ornamental Pear is also a late bloomer.

Golly, I love Fall.

The rest of our day included:

* Lunch at Jimmy Johns with Daddy (One of us caused a scene -the one with the puffiest hair)
* A quick jaunt into Joann's (I was half-way out the door when a lady ran after me with my envelopes. The envelopes. And it's not even the middle of the month, so ... whew. )
* A fierce round of Jennifer vs. Velociraptor (Calvin's brain child)
* A trip to the dermatologist (both kids in tow) to have two warts frozen off (I have a slight anxiety issue with doctors. I asked him if I was going to cry. It can't be helped. He thought I was a moron. I did not cry.)
* Steaks on the grill (superb!)
* Slightly crunchy rice (Boo.)
* Little people bedtime hijinks
* A lapse in judgment involving white craft paint
* An argument with Cory over the computer mouse (we compromised, ya'lls)
* A visit with Andy Bernard and Co.

It's been a good day.

Good, but long.
