just, today

Today had it's moments. But overall it was a great day.

* The kids discovered the Camellia bush out front and spent 30 minutes picking up the fallen flowers and handing them to me. I know our front neighbor appreciates the yard upkeep. These pretty balls of pink tissue remind me so much of being a kid. There was a bush in our front yard as well and it seemed there were always brown decomposing flowers on the ground. So I'm glad the kids found the freshest (dead) ones possible (I wouldn't let them pick new ones off the tree). And what a pretty splash of color in our apartment for the day:
* Lucy's friends Sammy and Hannah came over and played for a couple hours. Since it was a gorgeous 73 degrees today, they spent most of their time outside riding bikes and gathering leaves.
* We finally bought our Kidspace membership this afternoon! I've been putting it off (for no particular reason). Then the other night, I found $60 in our desk drawer! Um? Am I 12 years old, discovering a $5 bill in my jean's pocket? I was super excited and decided, this is going toward the Kidspace fund. We're doing it! So we did. Our friends Erica and June joined us and we had a great time splashing in water, building towers, climbing on toys, and playing at the park afterward.
* Both kids are in bed and asleep and it's 7:30pm!
* I have all sorts of fun shows to catch up on.
* And I'll be eating THIS for dessert. I already did the preliminary taste-test-before-it-goes-in-the-freezer spoonful and it is....YUM.

Not a bad Thursday at all.

We just put in an order of Samoas for the girl scouts but I have never dared to try this. Great, another BAD habit!! I LOVE the Camelia's, nothing is better than fresh flowers so good job to the kiddies for only getting the pretty ones, somebody needs to enjoy them!

Dude? How do you forget about $60? I mean, a 5 or a 10, yeah... but I never have $60 that I just forget about. Lucky you.

I would be so excited to for finding $60. I am glad you got a KidSpace Membership. It looks like such a great place. I love seeing your posts about it. I would love to take the kids when we come down to visit, will you show us around?
