It’s been a busy week here at Sonnystone Acres. Monday the Casey Sisters spent the night. Olivia had Tuesday off of school, but Samantha went to preschool in the morning, After lunch at McD we all wound up at Barnes and Noble. I bought a beautiful book, “Mythos” by Stephen Fry and I’m hoping it does for Greek mythology what Neil Gaiman’s “Norse Mythology” did for me. So far, so good.
As a start to gearing up for holidays we’ve been Cleaning, deeply. I really thought our 25-year-old refrigerator was beige. Lo and Behold, it’s quite white if you remove all those magnets and kid-pictures and Clean it. It’s inspiring to throw stuff out and reorganize, especially since we’ll be bringing the Christmas downstairs and moving the mundane upstairs Friday.
O&S will be back for another sleepover this Wednesday evening so that we can jump up early TurkeyDay and watch the Macy’s Christmas Parade. When Santa and the Mrs. arrive, we’re allowed to start singing Christmas songs. The Jrs will go up to Dale to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner with Jessica’s family in the evening, so we’re just having a meat and cheese tray here.
Casey’s birthday is Saturday, prompting my annual clothes drive to get him covered. He hasn’t said that he wants to do anything or go anywhere to celebrate the occasion, but I have planned a Big Turkey Dinner (with a turkey that Jess’s company gave her) on Sunday — and maybe Balloons.
I’m still obsessed with the Ancestry to the point that I had to make myself stop and get some stuff done. I tend to get all caught up in my imagination with these characters, almost as if I were reading a book. It’s a story, but it may be a while before I can write it up.
My African Violets are adjusting to their new homes – one is even blooming! The spider plants seem to be settling in pretty well, too.
Today the Sun is Shining! I think I’ll take a break and go for a stroll down in the woods to visit my Thoughtful Spot.
No matter how Noisy it gets, Remember: there’s an Off switch on that device…
