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!
