Hair foiling and children


At preschool the other day an adorable, sweet, little blonde said she liked that my hair was the same color as hers except mine was going black and she wanted to know why?  I laughed and she smiled and then her Mom who was standing in the doorway laughed.  Kids are so darn cute some-days.  She would have said gray if it wasn't for the fake blonde.

Cenneidigh the cook and Zeke growing up to help.

This week Zeke has made dinner twice and once it was a hit and the other was a miss.  Cenneidigh made pumpkin pie and only added 2 teaspoons of sugar instead of the 2/3 cup.  Well it was smooth, but like eating squash.  I love to see them try to cook it really helps me.

Library sale....like we need any more books


We now have at least 30 more, hard to resist when they are going for $5 a bag.  We are still swapping books and have sent off at least three so far this week.  We will be donating the read ones back to the library for their next sale when we are done with them.  Re-selling is a great way to earn money for them.  I got the newest Dirk Pitt and a newest Tami Hoag, a few paperback and a few other newer hardbacked books...quite a few...If it is ever really cold and we have to warm ourselves I guess we can burn the books first and then the furniture...haha

Busy week again

More later
