This is what Fiona looks like through a kids' kaleidoscope. Some days you get goofy with your camera, haha.
I didn't think I was going to have time to post any malarkey, today, with Eldest visiting, Kiddo in the house and Kiddo's girlfriend moving in with us for summer term. Plus, I figured there wouldn't be much to say, since no books arrived last week. But, then 3 books came in the mail, the guys went to work on emptying the attic at our old house and I'm just sitting here waiting for laundry to finish and our temporary resident (we'll just call her "C") to arrive so . . . there you go. Time to write, after all, and things to say.
Just walked in:
- Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs - via Paperback Swap
- The Tudor Secret by C. W. Gortner - via Paperback Swap
- True Spies by Shana Galen - from Sourcebooks for review
What else is new?
Poor Fiona had a reaction to her yearly shots. She scratched the injection spot raw and it stayed bloody all weekend, but Fi remained oddly perky and managed to charm our eldest. I just took this photo of her looking as serene as usual, just a bit ago. Fortunately, her wound has apparently stopped itching. It's a relief to see her back to normal.
We painted the master bedroom ceiling in our old house, dropped off hazardous waste, donated several bags of clothing and miscellaneous to the rescue mission, attended a housewarming party, made some new friends, cleaned the new house to prepare for our eldest son's visit and C's move into Kiddo's bedroom, and set up our new phones -- which we hope will lower the cost of our mobile service a bit. Not much reading was accomplished, but I'm more than halfway into The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley and enjoying it immensely.
I completely forgot:
June 6 was my 7th bloggiversary! I guess it's not as big a deal, after 7 years, but I did mean to say something. Since we're trying to get our house ready to sell and there's a lot of work to be done, I feel like I owe everyone an apology. I will post when I can but I'm probably not going to have much, if any, time to read other blogs and comment. I'm already having trouble just fitting in reading time. Cross your fingers or pray that we can finish up the fixing-upping and get that house on the market, soon.
We brought this home from vacation:
I tried it on an egg salad sandwich. Seriously. It was a little weird, but not as bad as it sounds. On the back they say it's a relish. That makes it sound a little less frightening than the word "jam", doesn't it?
