Okay, so I'm boycotting housework for the day, big deal!!! It's not like the house is really gross or anything. It's just that with the rain outside and the fireplace inside, the cup of tea and the slice of pound cake, it was just not right to ruin everything by cleaning! The weekend only comes every 5 days you know.
Instead I decided I needed some quality time in my "Woman Cave". So I took this great oil cloth I bought in Sabastapol (I hope I spelled that right) a couple of weeks ago.
It became a new book-bag for work! I just was not satisfied with my old one. It was cute enough, but not useful. I didn't put any pockets inside and it was too small. This one has plenty of pockets and is bigger too. It's just right!So, now that I'm done what shall I do with the rest of the day? I'm not sure, but it's not going to be wasted on cleaning! I have a new Dean Koontz book that I just started and it's grabbed me already. How does this sound-rain, tea and a new book? Perfect, I'll do it.
Hold the press!
Taryn just came along and kicked me out of the kitchen! She says, "Since dad and Jake are gone for the evening, I'm cooking. We'll have a girls-night-out right here!"
Okay, now I'm a little worried, will she make a mess and not clean it? What will she cook? I plant an idea in her head. I say to her, "But I really wanted chili dogs for dinner." Her mouth curls into a smile. She's taken the bait. I can hear her working in the kitchen. It's only 4pm and she putting ice in the glasses. This is the kind of thing that makes being a mom so fun.
Update, she's just barged into my room and says, "Dinner is gonna be a little early."
"That's pretty early Taryn, I'm having tea and cake"
"Well, stop eating! I already set the table and put bread on it! Come look at it."
I'm too lazy to get up and I don't want her to know that I'm blogging about her. So I say, "Hey, why don't you take a picture of it for me."
Here's what she's done...What a kid! Candles, flowers and sparking cider. I hope she's making chili dogs, I really want a chili dog!
Life is good.
