Playing Catch-Up


Why, hello dear readers!  Remember me?  Seriously, it's been a whole week since I last blogged anything.  This was not planned.  I had ideas.  What I didn't expect was how much nasal/sinus surgery can wipe a person out.  I think I felt better the day or two after surgery than I did most of last week.  I have spent most of the week holed up in my house, with only a few exceptions.  I did do a little reading, and our picture book bag from the library is bursting.  I thought I'd share a few photos today.

Is today the first day of autumn?  People are posting stuff about it on Facebook, but my wall calendar says it's really tomorrow.  I just know the high for today is supposed by 79, which is a pleasant drop for us.  When I picked the girls up from school on Friday, we stopped to take a picture of a tree in our neighborhood.  This tree declares it is fall!  I'll listen to the tree.


Because my baby is big enough to read to Mommy now.  Sigh.  We are still taking a break from Oz, although I'm hoping to start again this week.


My littlest threw a big blow-out party for her dolls.  It was supposed to be a pet party, and she made everyone invitations, but Mr. B and I were working on dinner, so only Big Sis came.  Little Sis said it was okay.  Then she shocked me by tidying up without anyone asking her to.  This never happens.


Little Sis drew this picture of her House of "Cabij Patch Kids" last night.  I think it's one of the sweetest pictures she's ever drawn.



And today was the school's annual Hat Parade!  Our theme this year was STEAM:  Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math.  Our magnet school is now a performing arts and science magnet.  Be sure and visit last year's Hat Parade post.  (My round-up of books about hats is very popular on Pinterest.)  Big Sis's first grade hat can be seen here.

Oh, and yesterday was the twelfth anniversary of Mr. B's and my wedding.  We didn't do anything to celebrate, mostly because I feel blechy.

Hope to get back to regular posting soon!  Hope everyone is well out there in Bloggy Land!

    1. Happy 12th, congrats! I'm working on it. Hard to blog about anything when the only thing you feel like doing is vegging on the couch, playing games on a tablet. ;)

    How sweet that she reads to you!?

    1. If she doesn't read out loud, she just pretends to read. She's barely ready for longer chapter books like this, but she insists on checking them out. ;) She takes her art seriously. I need to look into classes for her.

    1. Happy Fall! Nose has felt better the last couple of days, but I still get weird headaches, especially behind my left eye. Mr. B and I keep making morbid jokes about it....

  4. Happy Anniversary! Your daughter's drawing is beautiful! Very talented little girl. You have quite a Cabbage Patch Kids collection! I don't have any but wanted them a lot when I was a kid. We still have hot weather but it's sensibly more bearable. Happy autumn day!

    1. I think it's supposed to rain, but the sun is out now. It's supposed to be in the high seventies. Yeah, CPKs were my thing, from 1st or 2nd grade until 5th or 6th. My parents and grandma were among those rushing to try and find some... Christmas '83? '84? Whichever crazy year that was. I do love this drawing very much. Thanks!

  5. I love their hats! So, if you ever end up in Georgia, we will have to take you to the home of Cabbage Patch Dolls. The General Hospital is a magical place for all of us that grew up with cabbage patch dolls.

    1. In Cleveland! I have been to Babyland General! My mother lived in Roswell, then Canton, from 1995 to 2001. I would visit for a month every summer and most spring breaks, while I was in college. So many awesome day trips, and that is one I made sure we took one summer. :) It was so funny, watching the baby be born from the cabbage...
