There is a lot going on around here, but nothing to really talk about, yet. So today is going to be a bit of a ramble.
Can you believe it is September already? What happened to this year? Well, my favorite time of the year approacheth. I love September and October! I'm going to start cooking with pumpkin. Peanut has been asking when I'm going to take her to the pumpkin patch. I love going outside and not baking in the 100 degree weather. Yesterday it got to 100 again. Today we are only suppose to get into the mid 90's! This weekend, a major cold front is suppose to come through and we might get into the high 80's!
My birthday is coming up. That means in Dallas, Texas, there will be a storm. Really. Every year, right around my birthday, either the day before, day after or day of, there is a storm. Mom told me it stormed the day I was born. Perhaps that is why I've always loved thunderstorms.
My oldest son, Stonehelm, as he is now known in Blogland, got braces on his top teeth a couple of days ago. Honestly, the experience was more traumatic for me than him. (But that is a story for another time.) His mouth hurts a lot right now, poor guy.
As I have mentioned many, many times, I have a million great ideas. What holds me back from doing many of these great ideas? Money. I don't have money. That's really a bummer, you know?
I've been doing some weaving.
Thanks to instant streaming on Netflix, Peanut has been watching a continuous streaming of Blues Clues. It's a good thing for me that I find Blues Clues to be a fun kid show. If I found it half as annoying as some of the other kid shows on, I would be going crazy about now.
This year we choose to take the kids to school, rather than putting them on the bus. I've noticed while passing the various bus stops along the road, that the kids who are waiting on the curb for buses, all have their cell phones, iPhones or some other kind of thing like that. They are listening to music and texting. Do you remember back in the not so distant past that kids waiting for the bus would read a book? Would that texting alternative even cross the minds of kids these days?
OK, I'm rambled enough. Perhaps I'll think of something interesting to say or something brilliantly funny to share for next time. Until then, happy September 1st!
