Holiday's over!

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Tue Sep 05, 2006 4:58 am

The holiday is over for this year. I think the next holiday with days off is Veteran's Day on November llth. Then, Thanksgiving and then Christmas. The year has just flown past. My youngest son had his birthday today so I called and talked to him for awhile. He lives in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He says he has to make a pie tomorrow because he thinks his wife wants a pie. I asked him how he knew she wanted a pie. He said for his birthday she gave him pie weights, rings to go on a pie to keep the rim from getting two brown and a bag that you put your pie dough in and roll it out and it makes a perfect circle to fit you pie tin. They both work and they both cook but he loves doing desserts. He got something to make creme brulee too and an automatic frother for cappacino?. Ben goes back to school and Wendy has to go to the office so Andy is going to hang out with Jacob and make pie. Jacob is only four so he doesn't go to school yet. He goes to day care three days a week. It's getting toward fall there. There will be frost by the end of the month, maybe. He says it's been extra warm there this summer.
What did I do with the rest of my weekend. Not much. I watered everything yesterday. I finished a book I was reading. Now, I am reading a book about greenhouses. I'm not sure that I will put anything in mine this winter. Well, maybe the geraniums and maybe the spider plant. I don't have much room inside for plants. Too many bears I think. I am really running out of room for bears. But, when I see one that needs rescued I can't resist buying it. I bought two last week and two the week before. Chance has almost as many squeaky toys. They are all over the floor. It's like little kids. I pick them all up and put them in the basket and pretty soon she has her nose in the basket. She takes them all out and lines them up on the floor. Pretty soon they are all over again. It's not so bad unless she takes it in the bedroom. It's pretty bad getting up in the night and stepping on one. It scares you half to death. Makes much more noise when you step on it in the middle of the night than it makes during the day.
Today, I was going to clean house and run the vacuum cleaner. It didn't get done. The cupboard with all the storage containers got cleaned. I saw a bug and had to take everything out to track it down. So, I cleaned it all and threw out all the lids that didn't have a box anymore. I wonder what happened to all those boxes. It's like socks without mates. I don't have a dishwasher to eat the boxes. You'd think it was the lids that would disappear.
I made apple raisin pies. We gave one away. Half to two different people. We ate some for supper. It wasn't the best pie I've made. DR didn't eat the grapes so I'll do something with them tomorrow. I can't leave them or they will draw fruit flies. The house flies know it's getting on toward fall. We had to go buy some fly swatters on Sunday. They just seem to appear at this time of the year. We didn't have flies at all until this week.
Tomorrow will be a busy day at work. It will probably take a day or two to get caught up on things. I was moving books around in the large print section and I didn't get it all finished on Saturday. It will wait until I have a few minutes at the end of the day and I will finish it. I only have M's to do. One day I started with A and the next day I started with Z. I had to moved them all around to make space at the end of each shelf. It works better that way.
It rained this afternoon. The showers have been going all around us the past few days. Today, I decided to take a nap in my recliner chair. It didn't work for a couple of reasons. I just got to sleep when there was a big boom of thunder. Chance had to go the the window and bark at it. I told her to go outside. DR came in to turn the computer off. Chance decided if she couldn't bark she would set on my lap. She doesn't sleep well on my lap. She can't get comfortable. She turns circles and whines and then she heard some kids and took off flying to see what they were doing. They were on the way down the street before it started to rain. I bet they just made it home before it started. It poured buckets and the street looked like a river. it only rained about twenty minutes but we got about half an inch. There were puddles everywhere. DR and I went outside when it stopped. We live on a dirt street. The water made beautiful patterns in the dirt as it went down the hill. Every little rock sends it a different way. So, things go on even on holidays. Dooley

I think that was quite a big hint ;)

Dooley, your life is never boring, is it? Know what you mean about the stuffed animals. Our greyhound, Ursula leaves hers strewn throughout the house AND they squeak when stepped on. Those, when stepped on, can wake the entire household.

Fred has a toy box also but his toys are usually all over the floor. Gene says he wished he'd learn how to pick them all up.Wannabe
