Sweet Treats

      No Comments on Sweet Treats

Today is that ever so glorious day where it’s okay to take candy from strangers — Halloween! This is the first time that both of the girls are out making the rounds, and I hope that the three of them (’cause yanno, Z with them) have a good time. Smalls was also excited because this year she gets to make… Read more »

Not Spaghetti Squash

      No Comments on Not Spaghetti Squash

Today, I had the dubious pleasure of coring four pumpkins for tomorrow. I don’t know what the frack happened, but two of them decided they were spaghetti squash and I had like, ALL THE STRANDS. My working theory of the moment is that it had to do with the tool I used on the two over the spoon I used… Read more »

Yay Tidying

One of the projects Z has wanted to tackle for ages has been our pantry. Today was the day that he managed it, and he did a great job clearing out stuff. Winners included a can of tonic water from before we moved into this house, and a box of Stove Top that predated that. Whups. But it’s out of… Read more »

I Had to Get Dressed

      No Comments on I Had to Get Dressed

I had exactly one thing on my itinerary for the day — not getting dressed. That quickly got scuppered when bat messaged down that they needed to see a doctor. Oh well, I’ll not get dressed tomorrow instead, ha ha. It was a pleasant surprise to find out that the walk-in centre wasn’t going to charge them for a single… Read more »

Currency, Innit

      No Comments on Currency, Innit

Freddos are a dinky little chocolate treat, the price of which comes up often as a way of bemoaning inflation. Z picked up a couple because I’d never had one, so yanno… eating money or something. It was pretty blah ’cause Kraft ruined Cadsbury everything, but at least I can tick it off my list of things that are a… Read more »

Z was out earlier mowing the lawn. He’s not done it in a bit because either the grass was wet, or he’s been in too much pain. The girls wanted to go out and play with their scooter while he was out front doing it, so I opened the door for them. The light coming through the rotted mortar caught… Read more »

Little Gamers

      No Comments on Little Gamers

Today, the children exemplified that they are indeed our children; they spent the entire day playing video games with each other. Perhaps I should have encouraged them to do other things but meh. They were happy and having fun with each other, thereby enabling me to work. Considering that I’m well behind myself, having a couple of solid, uninterrupted hours… Read more »

Did a Thing

Today has followed yesterday in being a day of not doing much. I DID manage the bathing thing though, a fact that my hair is super grateful for. I also got several loads of laundry pushed through, but I’m not going to worry about folding that stuff until like… not today. That I got those two chores done in some… Read more »

A Bit of Silver

      4 Comments on A Bit of Silver

Well okay, I’m not really sure if it’s gray, or copper. Copper is the normal colour of my highlights when I let my natural colour grow out, but — I know some gray has been sneaking in. I don’t mind really. I figure that once it goes solid white or gray, then it will be easier for me to dye… Read more »
