As things have started to get back to normal around here and the weather is slowly growing colder every morning it is nice to look back on our Fall and of all our visitors.
The rest of the week was spent spending time down at our winestand in the afternoons since the days of it being open are numbered. We had great weather for the most part and ate our way through the week. I've tried several new recipes lately that have been hits so I'll be posting those sometime in the next week or two. Since Gannie and Laurie left I've found myself constantly cleaning and picking things up. People normally associate guests with added chores and housework but with these two around my house was looking fantastic and my laundry was always folded (albeit in very weird ways!). The second they were gone Deaner and Evans managed to destroy it in 24 hours. After their Monday departure, Deaner and I were nervous that Evans might be a little out of sorts. Since it was a holiday for D and he wasn't working we drove out to the larger American base about an hour away for some Johnny Rockets and a new bike.
Hurry up already Daddy!
The joy of cycling with no pants has no end. Until you realize that you actually have to pedal a bike to go anywhere. We might still be talking endlessly about the "new bike new bike" but I haven't seen much riding on it since it takes some effort to stretch his feet down to the floor to scoot along. Forget the pedals. Hopefully we will have a chance this weekend to really test it out. And just for the record, the bike was a way bigger hit than the new Cinderella "Diamond Edition" DVD (that cost $30!). This child will take Mufasa and Mufasa's Baby (Simba) any day over singing sewing mice. I can hardly blame him.
I'm off to read and troll Pinterest for new dinner ideas. I have a project up my sleeve for this afternoon that I saw on Pinterest and depending on the outcome, perhaps y'all will hear about it. If it is disastrousit might just stay up my sleeve. Happy Thursday to everyone! God, I love short weeks!
