Iâ€™d like to take this moment to recognize a few folks. If you get a chance, please check out the links provided. Maybe buy a book or two. â€˜K?
Also, Devon is doing a nifty new thing called Ink In My Coffee Blog Calling Card. Go here to get all the details. Iâ€™m doing this, too.
Sandy J, Devon, and Anteann took me up on the 10 Things challenge. Check their blogs for their favorite 10 Things. Let me know if you do a 10 Things and weâ€™ll all be doing 10 Things together. :wave:
Did I miss anyone?? If so, my apologies.
My son did really well his first week of school. Iâ€™m proud of him. When I went to pick him up, he announced that he played and played a lot with his friends. Aw. So cute. Glad I got the backpack, too. Heâ€™s going to have a folder every day to bring home.
Also got mixed up on my weeks and got ahead of myself. I was thinking NEXT Tuesday was his birthday, but Iâ€™m a week early. :plain: Oh well. Better to be prepared I suppose.
MIL told me that a little girl kissed DS on the cheek. 😯 Itâ€™s already starting. Egads. I asked DS if a little did girl in fact do that and he gave me the most disgusted look on his face with a muttered â€œyeahâ€. :hehe: He also told me they sang in class today.
He was in a great mood when I picked him up, so we headed over to Target. I had to get a baby shower gift for Saturday. Spent way too much money, but you know I bought stuff for my kid too. How could I not? I told him if he was really good in the store he could have a new die cast Thomas Train character. He picked Bill & Ben. He wanted a mini-box of Goldfish, so I got that too. Then they had Thomas Train underpants, so bought some of that too. Got several items for the baby shower (I love buying baby stuff â€“ got some booties and MAN they are so cute). Went through the checkout really fast and as Iâ€™m walking out I realize I forget to buy wrapping paper. DUH. So I will have to make another trip to a store for wrapping paper. URGH. Oh well.
Got about 4000 words done on the new contemporary. Having fun with this one. Am posting a short excerpt.
And, in case you thought I forgotâ€¦ here are 10 More Things I Love
In no particular order:
Candlelight. I like scented candles and find Home Interiors are the best you can get.
Fresh flowers. And not just roses. Iâ€™d probably get them more often if I didnâ€™t kill â€˜em.
Baked goods. All of them.
Scenic photos. You know â€“ of places youâ€™ve never been and can only imagine.
Learning something new. Expanding the brain.
Hugs. Especially unexpected ones.
A good romance novel. With unforgettable characters.
Old movies. Casablanca, Random Harvest, Gone With The Wind, The Quite Man, to name a few.
Menâ€™s Cologne. MmMm.
