My to do list for Friday. . . I wrote my list out Thursday night then stared at it for the longest time Friday morning. I know I was tired and in pain from my fall but I could not figure out what that last thing on my list said. Did I even write that? Nope. That last piece of scribble is a note that Aaron tacked onto my list. It took me forever to figure out what it says. In case you are wondering it says "Borrowed $4".
No pics from the Chiropractor! It was lunch time when we were finished there. I gave the girls some choices for lunch. I was wanting Chick-fil-A or lunch at the Co-op. Adrianna's friend was on board for the Co-op but Adrianna didn't think she would like it. Wendy's won. We could all agree on that. After lunch the girls wanted to go to the park for a few minutes. It was a pretty day so I thought that was a stellar idea :)
They had so much fun running around and letting loose some energy. Although I really don't know where that energy came from. I used all mine up the day before skating then getting to bed late. Hmmm . . .
These trees thought it was a pretty day as well. They are a little confused. . .
I needed a few things from the Co-op so after I pried the girls from the slides and swings it was our next stop.
Look at all those beautiful veggies!!
There is always a basket of fruit for the kids at the Co-op.
The girls helped themselves to an apple.
I picked up some bee pollen while I was there. We all have crazy seasonal allergies around here. The "seasonal" allergies Adrianna and I suffer form seem to be all year round. So I've been using local honey as a sweetener in stead of sugar in my hot tea. Instead of coffee, I have been drinking a lot of hot tea lately. If you know me you know that I LOVE coffee. The no coffee thing hasn't been all that hard and I do have a cup every once in a while. Anyway, my point was that I have been adding a teaspoon or so of local honey to my tea every day (sometimes more than once a day!) and it seems to have really helped. I also love a piece of toast with butter and honey as a snack. I may eat that a little too often . . . Anyway, I read on one of my favorite blogs about the benefits of bee pollen so I thought I'd pick some up. Here is the blog post about the bee pollen.
I've been putting it on my oatmeal in the mornings . . .
After shopping we met my friend at the book store to trade kids. She had Ava and I took one of her kids back home with me. The local used book store, 5th Street Books, was having their monthly .25 cent sale. Yes, I said $.25, 25 cent, one quarter, how ever you want to say it. Their everyday book price is $.99. You think you can't beat that price then they have a 25 cent sale! Paperback and hardback. There are shelves upon shelves upon shelves of books at his place. If you are a book lover, this is the place for you. You can't really go in there looking for anything specific. I mean you can but you may not find it. But if you love to read, that really doesn't matter, you'll find something that catches your eye.
I came home with these and a few others that Ava picked out . . . I have already read the one on the bottom, Wideacre by Phillipa Gregory, but I really liked it and for a quarter, why not? I also have not read any of the Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich books but I want to. I know the movie based on the first book is coming out soon so I need to read it. The only Janet Evanovich book that they had was Fearless Fourteen. I have a lot of catching up to do to get there but what the heck, it was $.25.
I had ordered a set of embroidery patterns from Sublime Stitching and some Thread Heaven. It's a wax that you pull your thread through before stitching. Makes such a big difference! The thread moves so smoothly through the fabric :)
I finished up several pieces of embroidery this weekend. I'll post pictures another time . . .
Saturday was a Tom's kind of day . . . I love my Tom's! They are so comfortable.
My Mom gave me a massage on Saturday. I so needed it! My back was hurting before I fell but after I fell I really needed it. I went over to her house without the kids for once. I knew I wouldn't be able to relax with them there. I felt so much better after my massage! Thanks, Mom :)
I believe the long weekend was getting to the kids . . .
Mustaches and goatees are the thing to draw on your face when you are a bored kid at my house. My kids know how to make me smile!
See, even in her sleep this one makes me smile!
