Pleasant Surprises

I had breakfast with thisi little munchkin and his brother and parents this morning.

My friend, Bella and her husband, Ivo, invited Jim, Kasia and myself over for homemade waffles this morning.We were pleasantly surprised, so we got ourselves over. Matti announced that I was there for dinner. At four, we make allowances but did tell him it was breakfast ,not dinner.

It’s not often we get a chance to socialize, and Ivo and Bella are the kindest people.

Sometimes, it’s amazing to get pleasantly surprised,especially by our younger neighbors.It was a wonderful start to the day.

April Fools Day

It makes me really miss my Mom, as no matter how old I got, she always tried to celebrate April Fools Day with a little prank.

For instance, when I was in grammar school, I’d come down the steps wearing my school uniform, and walk into the kitchen where she was making breakfast.We would start talking and she’d say, in the course of conversation, “Get upstairs and change-what is that on your uniform?” Oh my God? A stained, ripped or torn uniform or uniform blouse? I’d yell where and she’d go to show me…followed by”April Fool!”

I miss those days and Mom.

Hey Mom? “What’s that on your halo?”.. Lol..I love you and miss you every day, and that’s no April Fool!

  

Pretty good day

We started out anniversary day with going out to breakfast.

Unfortunately due to Labor Day weekend, we had to go to a back-up spot, and we both had scrapple with pancakes..**mental note to self-need a kitchen to start juicing again-scrapple will kill you!**

With that literally under the belt, we came back and took the girls out for a bit, and then decided to tackle the inevitable-colors for Undisclosed Location Deux.

We went to Lowe’s and agreed on paint colors for the house**hello?Snowstorm in August?*** and ended up back here with the girls, where we went on-line and found our siding and roof colors.

I think we’ve gotten this married team down pretty well, considering we’ve only done it for 11 years…lol.

Happy Saturday! Be safe this Labor Day weekend!
