Wednesday's Faves and Flops

My fave today is so sneaky, really it is. "Tee-hee!" My friend Maggie came by for lunch today. Apparently, my minestrone (*see yesterday's post for the recipe) AND the ice cream (mmm, Moose Tracks) she brought for lunch today just hit the spot, and she got very relaxed. All 4 kiddos (my 2 girls, Buddy, and Red) were playing quietly (Thank you Lord!) so I got this shot:


It really is nice to know a friend can be that comfortable in my home. Great compliment for me! Hope you don't hate me Mag! :) It was just too hard to pass up.
I don't really have a flop today, except that Meg's been a little cantankerous (I don't even know if that's a real word) at preschool and at home, and not sure exactly how to nip it in the bud. I'm trying taking the video games away for a few days to see if that will help. I don't want her to get out of hand, especially in school. She's very bright--she is in a reading circle now for the older kids in preschool and got stars for reading some words today--and I just don't want that intelligence wasted with bad behavior. Trying to really praise the good and correct the bad, and hope the good wins out more :)

I noticed you had little to say about my falling to sleep. That WAS good soup. My tummy was warm and I WAS relaxed. Thanks for the great hospitality! Mercy, once football is over, I think we'll go to bed earlier around here!

And...I just want to differentiate in that second paragraph the slight alteration between writing about MAg and then and a shift to daught, MEg...with preschool and behavioral problems! :-D

And Misty says to me upon my leaving, "We hope you come back to enjoy our ice cream with us!"

And I said, "Um yo, babe, I caught that...you are not keeping the moose tracks."

...uh, yeah, I'm slightly addicted. Purity brand. Go buy some...join me.

excuse me...

"Honey...come look at this picture of your gracious wife on the WWW!"

Hmm, didn't think about the Meg/Mag thing, but you can be cantankerous too :) I was at first feeling good about you being so comfortable in my home that you fell asleep, but then hubby sees it and says, "Wow, the conversation must have been riveting!" So, now I think I'm boring!
