Grin Big!


New chef in town

Shelby has taken an interest in helping me out a little in the kitchen.
I let her measure out things in measuring cups
crack the eggs
use the mixer

making brownies

the rewards of baking-
licking the bowl and spatula!

Until then...

For the few of you who do follow my blog
I'm sorry I haven't posted.
Honestly, time gets away from me.
Then my life is a bore.
Nothing new has occured in the past few weeks.
Thanksgiving came and went.
It was very nice.
Just the three of us.
I cooked the full spread.
I ate the full spread.
(it felt like it anyway).
Larry is well. Working the usual second shift.
Shelby is very well.
Growing and then growing some more.

Not much else to offer.

Until then...

I never know

When doing laundry you hear the normal sounds.
The washer sloshing.
The dryer humming.
Not in my house.
When my washer finishes spinning I hear things rolling around.
As my dryer does it's thing I often hear what sounds like rocks
ricocheting around.
So I go to inspect.
After doing a load of my daughter's clothes
I find this type of thing waiting for me.


Sometimes I never know what will come out of the wash.

Until then...

Why do I even bother?

A forgotten picture

I forgot to post this in my last post.
I loved this!
It's so random.
But very artistic.

Until then...

Family outing

Sundays have become Family Day.
With Larry working nights during the week Shelby and I don't see him much.
So Saturdays are devoted to resting, housework, etc.
Sundays we do things like watch movies, play games, or do whatever.
Together as a family.
Today we went to my favorite spot in Greenville.
Falls Park on the Reedy.
This being my favorite time of year I knew it would be beautiful.
And it was.

While at the park we stopped at a cafe where she got a scoop of ice cream
and we got a cup of coffee.

(a balloon artist was there and Shelby got a fish on a pole)

her hand in mine

After a great afternoon at the park we came home and
cooked steaks on the grill.
It was a great day.

Until then...
