Hello...for those of you wondering where the heck I am, I am outside. And I am very happy to be outside. But, it makes it hard for me to blog.
I am writing quickly, so if this post doesn't flow super well, that's why. I am writing quickly so I can go back outside. To weed my delicious onions, that's why. Pamela warned me this would happen, but here I am giving the preemptive "that' why" to every anticipated "why" question.
One quote: "Oh my goonness mommy, you just scared my hecks out of me." -Brilyn
One thing I am looking forward to: Camping out in our yard tonight. I especially like tin foil dinners (a meal of potatoes, burger, and onions cooked in a tin foil packet) and stockbrot (Snack made by molding bread dough around the end of a stick, cooking it in the fire, and then filling it with honey. Plus you eat it. Plus it's German.)
Word of the week: "Plus" (Anything may follow this phrase. It's like Ranch dressing it just goes wth anything.) -Brilyn
Cade has a word of the week, er, month for you too: "UP!" Must be pronounced with vehemence. Definition: "Something needs to change, I am not happy with the way things are right now." I really like that you can say so much with so little, so I may adopt this phrase-um- word. So, if I say "UP!" you know what I mean.
Brilyn has an imaginary friend. His name is Sean. Sometimes I respond to something
Brilyn has said, only to be informed that she was "talking to SEAN!" Let's just say I am really okay with this. Mommy's ears are tired. Actually, sometimes when I am cooking supper I say, "Go talk to Sean." And she GOES! That is really cool for me. I think I should get mommy-points for that one. Or, demerits, depending on your perspective.
I haven't written about Bailey because he is still more of a stress-inducer than stress-reducer. When that changes I will tell you more about him. I think it will change when we install invisible fence. I am looking forward to that. (Having it, not installing it.)
And now for my pictures:
Cade, being cute.
Brilyn, in my wedding dress.
A rainbow that actually landed in my backyard...it was better than Lucky Charms.
Our beans are purple, but they turn green when you cook em, but if you rinse them in cold water, the water turns blue.
Brilyn likes the BIG blackberries we found growing behind a neighboring wheat field. YUM!
And now, ladies and gentlemen, I must go outside to weed my onions. And they are really good on ka-bobs. OH! One more thing...Brilyn checked a book out of the library... Emeril's cookbook for kids. (Only my daughter...she was like, "Mommy! This book is about FOOD!") So, in it there are some wonderful yummy recipes, and something new for the spice cupboard... Baby BAM!
