Yesterday, there was white crap falling out of my sky. And my youngest was sleeping on the sofa with a sore throat much of the day. And Thor insisted that he keep going out to see if this stupid white crap was over and done yet. And I had an unhappy appointment to keep after 5. So it was a miserable day here, until Mr. UPS arrived with a present....from Gaylen!
Most importantly, she found poor Thor a wonderful new lobster! Now, Thor has to be convinced that a toy is his before he'll play with it. This is good, because I'm pretty sure it saves a lot of stuff from being eaten. So, for a while, we napped with the lobster.
When Patrick came home from the job fair, he decided to play with the lobster. Thor helped. Ultimately, the little boys got to play, too. Soon, Thor will be convinced that this is HIS new Lobster!
But my favorite part of the lobster was the tag. How funny is this?Can you read where it says "For Dogs Only"? Were there problems with children using dog toys?
Gaylen also made me a pretty new reversible apron, which is here with Mr. Lobster. You can see it on my breakfast room counter; one side is the yellow print with pink accents, and the other side is the pink print with the yellow accents. Now my apron can match my outfits.
But nicest of all, she knitted me socks. Duckie, be jealous: they're pink. I have never seen hand knitted socks before, and look at the detailing on the sides, and ruffly tops. Thank you, Gaylen; you made my day!
