My breakfast this morning, which I'm just finishing, was a hot bowl of oatmeal, a cup of hot coffee, and scali bread toasted. That toasted scali bread gives biscuits a run for their money, IMO.
Had sent pumpkin's mom an email thanking her for the pic and saying, "I guess his fat lip had gone down before picture time." This morning there was an email waiting from her, with a big LOL, it had gotten worse by 2:00, but they kind of positioned him not facing head on to the camera. In mine, I don't notice anything wrong, but his mom said, even if it had showed, she figured that would be a picture of him as he is at 2, an active boy who gets bumps, bruises, and fat lips - "this is pumpkin at 2 !"
Want to do some baking today, but holding off a bit. They don't expect my son's FIL to last past the week-end, and I'm thinking a double batch of some cranraisin, some blueberry scones will be in future to bake and take out there. Talked with my DIL yesterday and she said my son is taking such good care of her, and the others, cooking big batches of meals and taking them downstairs for them. Once things are "over", then I'll bring out a tray of lasagna and my chicken dish to give my son a break.
Harry evidently spent the night out again, what else is new. Came running out from under the shrub this morning, right up the door, wanting badly to come in. Couldn't do that, but when I patted him, his fur was cold and damp. A little later got an email from C.L. that he was up there. He does go into her breezeway and warm up.
After 9:00 and past time that I should be showered and dressed. Have slews of washes to do today. I think I'm down to my last clean outfit. Luckily it's a stay at home day, so those old comfortable stretched out blue sweats will be fine.
Kargiver, how did your visit go yesterday? Are you in the process, even thinking, of making anything for the trips for Christmas? Weather like this I think of pulling out my afghan squares (keep them in a cabinet right in the l.r. for easy access), and getting a couple more knitted. May just do that this afternoon if there is something good on TV to settle back with.
