Thursday Tidbits

  • J's surgery went well, and he's recovering nicely.  The weekend was a bit rough -- he was incredibly sore, and trying to take care of him and the children and keep the children off him felt like being under siege.  But we got through it and things are getting easier.
  • Josie started walking.  At first it was just figuring out how to stand up, then it was taking a step or two, then she figured out how to string steps together.  It's kind of thrilling.
  • We have a mouse.  There's a little hold in the corner of the wall in the living room, and apparently a little mouse has made his way in.  J and Zeke were downstairs when they saw him, and Zeke was mesmerized, peeking over the back of the couch and whispering, "Daddy, shhhhhh, we have to be quiet so we don't scare the mouse."  We'll plug up the hole, but mice don't bother me so much.  Rats, on the other hand, make me want to puke.
  • Getting excited for Thanksgiving.  Next week Zeke's school is having a little Thanksgiving celebration, so I'm going to make my mom's famous cranberry jello mold.  And this time, I will remember to cook the cranberries.*
*The first time I made it, I used whole cranberries and forgot to cook them, subjecting my poor guests to a miserable experience.

    Mom makes me a special one all for myself. You should do the same for Zeke. It's the right thing to do. For Jesus, etc.

  2. If he likes it, I'll make as many as he wants. He's kind of a picky eater. Josie, on the other hand, is a Very Good Eater, a la her uncle Joshua (or her daddy, for that matter).

  3. Hahaha - I can picture your guests all puckering, going, "Ooh! That's tart!"

    Glad Jason's recovering well.
