i feel out of sorts because although it was monday, we didn’t do any school, instead we had some new friends over for tea. a lovely gal from my homeschool group, who i had only briefly met once before last summer, contacted me about getting together and so we agreed on today. we had a nice late lunch: sandwiches, pasta salad, strawberries and raspberries, chamomile tea and lemon biscuits. and i am telling you, just in case you ever came for tea, so you’d know what to expect.
everyone behaved themselves, the house was clean, they yard tidy. we did manage to squeeze in one slight emergency before our guests arrived, which got in the way of one our batches of cookies, but that is just life with boys, at least with my boys anyway. my mom brought me flowers, as today was an anniversary of sorts. we didn’t burn anything. i managed to clean corners of the house that may never get cleaned again-just kidding-but i did get something out of the drain in the bathtub that resembled a lifeless rat. gosh, maybe we should have guests more often!
i will leave the scrap-bag exchange up for a few more days while i continue to try and work out the details. i think i must put them on paper so it will make sense to me.
please forgive the odd timing of my posts. i have not figured out this one kink in wordpress. like for example it is 9:02 cA time, but my draft says it is 5:02 a.m., which means in wordpress world it is already tomorrow…?
so i will be off to bed now since this crummy cold is not taking its’ leave. it went from a runny, nose-allergy-type thing to a stuffy nose, dizzy feeling in my head.
and remember: if you ever want to come for tea………………just warn me so that i can get that rat out of the bathtub!
hope you all are well. thanks for stopping by.
