A conversation from Sunday…
Today I sent out an email to Pat at work. As soon as I hit the sent button, I got a bad feeling. I was pretty sure I didn’t hit Reply All. But something didn’t quite feel right about it. Sure enough, as I checked the outgoing message log, I realized that I sent it to a lady at Defense Finance & Accounting Service.
Yesterday was a beautiful spring day. Although it seems to me that Virginia generally skips spring and moves right into summer…at least what summer feels like in Maine. Yesterday would have been a beautiful summer day in Maine but we had it here in March.
Jack and I played a lot of baseball with his new bat and ball from Nana. We searched around the garage and found my softball glove so that we would both have gloves. I don’t think I have ever felt like such a good baseball/softball player as I do when I play with Jack. I can hit almost any pitch he throws to me. It’s like back in 8th grade when I was the MVP of the Alexander Elementary School softball team. Actually, I still don’t know how I earned that accolade. I really wasn’t much of a slugger, weighing in at probably 70 lbs. And I’m not sure my glove was all that golden either. Hmmm.
Every time I asked Casey what she wanted to read over the last few weeks, she would say “Dora.” And we had no Dora books. We checked one out of the library a few months ago but had to return it. So, we went to Barnes & Noble and Casey got her Dora book. It’s actually two stories in one. In the first part, Dora and her friends make a wish to “Little Star.” Dora wishes for sunshine, Boots the monkey wishes for bananas and the iguana wishes for flowers. Not my first guess if someone asked me what an iguana wishes.
Jack and Casey were watching Dora in the car on the way to they gym on Friday. I love it when Casey talks back to Dora. There is a part in the show where Dora always asks the viewers, “Where are we going?” Then the characters get a map out and figure out what places they have to go through (woods, windy rivers, mountains, etc) to get to their destination. On Friday, when Dora asked “Where are we going?”, Casey yelled, “We’re going to the gym, Dora!”
I finished the first of what I hope is many crafty projects today. I think I started this project about 4 weeks ago when I ran out to Hancock Fabric on a Sunday afternoon to buy some fabric to cover some pillows. The pillows I planned to cover were red and I switched to a blue with white polka dot. Hancock Fabric closes at 5pm on Sundays which I learned as I pondering different colors and a store manager announced that the store was now closed. The blue with polka dots was in front of me at the time and that’s what I went with.
