Not Much!

You might recall that I have a counter between my kitchen and breakfast room, open on both sides, which I call "the pass-through".  I set up trivets on the pass-through, and put the pans on the trivets so people can feed themselves.

You also need to know that there's a "harpoon" game that goes on around here.  Basically, that involves Dan chasing Ryan around with a plastic toy sword or axe, usually because Ryan has done some terrible thing, and Ryan ends up being harpooned with the sword.

So, one night after the dishes were off the pass-through, but the trivets were still in place, Ryan griped about emptying the dishwasher and making his own school lunch.  This was a harpoon-worthy occasion, and Dan arrived with the sword.  Ryan scrambled onto the pass-through, sat on the trivets, and broke a couple of the tiles.  (Of course, since they were from some store or other, the tiles were very thin.)  So, yesterday, the boys made a field trip to buy new tiles for my trivets, and made me a nice varied set.

All in all, I'm glad that the boys played "harpoon" that night, because my new set of trivets are just great!

Ryan and Dan did really well with their tile choice. I think the new tiles are beautiful and, far more importantly, Ryan and Dan have delighted their dear Mom!

Howdy Marjie, you gotta love a sword fight between the boys. You know now what to do when you need something else new hehe. They made a great choice too. No worries, and love, Carol (and Stella and Rory)

With a new kid in the house I may need to buy me a plastic sword.

Those are very pretty trivets indeed. Upon first reading, I thought they had broke the countertop - not the trivets. Lucky boys! g
