I hear birds singing! And we saw a robin yesterday. Is it possible that maybe a crocus or two are pushing their way to the surface. I’m betting they are. I’ll check that out later on this morning.
We watched Tess and Bill’s four kids yesterday.
Kids eat. They eat constantly.
When they got here at 9:00 I fixed pancakes and scrambled eggs with sausage. They finished eating those at 10:15.
At 11:15 Cara looked at the clock and said, “It’s lunch time!” In unison, Jim and I both said, “You just finished breakfast!” To which they all replied, “But it’s lunch time.”
So we ate turkey and cheese sandwiches, peanut butter sandwiches, carrot sticks and celery, and apples and peanut butter.
An hour later they were eyeing the Oreo cookie cakes. So they ate that.
An hour later it was time for peanuts and more apples.
If my memory serves me, they made it without any more food until our supper of lasagna and french bread. I know there should have been a salad thrown in there, but I forgot to buy lettuce. They’ll survive without their veggies just this once.
We bowed our heads and James said a simple prayer before each meal. He’d say, “We thank you Lord for this beautiful day and this food and grandma and grandpa and the night and the toys and Whiskey and…”He apparently had a lot to be thankful for. Oh, and he was being thankful for Whiskey the dog, not the drink.
They were begging for ice cream exactly one hour after supper dishes were cleared away. I think when my cuckoo clock says “cuckoo” each hour, they hear “foodfood”.
We managed several games of Chinese Checkers, Apples to Apples, dolls, and lots of Lego building in between the food. And James had to help grandpa feed the sheep. He brought two pairs of boots along just so he could.
Yep, we have a lot to be thankful for. Each and every one of us.
