We were serenaded every day by Sharon practicing on her keyboard. The video is from earlier this summer. It's still one of my favorite songs that she plays, though she is progressing beyond it.
~~~~~Rosie Mae whipped up treats in the kitchen, a batch of donuts on one day, chocolate chip cookies on another, and then topped it off with several dozen Cookies & Cream cupcakes that she shared with a group of friends.
~~~~~I displayed my skills at being a klutz in a rather spectacular fashion.
It all started when I was rummaging through the refrigerator looking for something extra to add to our salad for lunch one day and found half of a pomegranate that I had forgotten we have. Usually we prepare the entire one, but hey, having pomegranate seeds to sprinkle on our salad would be a treat. Unfortunately it turned out to not look very appetizing so I went to pitch it over the fence into the cow pasture.
The fence isn't far from the back door so instead of walking to the fence I tried to throw it as far into the pasture as I could without leaving the house, Exerting all the strength I could muster I smashed that poor thing into the door frame. I was stunned for a few seconds as pomegranate seeds showered everywhere and red juice went flying. My entire kitchen looked as if something horrible happened there.
The girls and I looked at each other, utterly speechless and then burst into shrieks of laughter as we proceeded to clean up the mess.
In the years to come I'm sure it will be the one memorable moment from this week that we will still remember.
~~~~~We made another library run, just in the nick of time to avoid paying fines on a book we had accidently missed getting back last week when we had been there. Steven was pleased to be able to see the ducks that congregate at the pond next to library parking lot. I have to remember to take some stale bread along next time so he can feed them like we've seen others do.
