Wee One’s book reading group went really well. He behaved perfectly (yeah, I was in shock…still am). Wee One’s name was drawn out of the hat and he won a bug viewer! The theme of this summer’s reading group is Insects.
I stayed with Wee the whole time because all the other parents did the same. I was unable to explore the library for new reading material. Out of desperation, I picked up a paperback at the store: Coffin County (Paperback) by Gary A. Braunbeck .
I enjoyed the last 2 horror novels I’ve read so maybe 3 times is good luck.
Hot, humid, and windy all week. After the severe thunderstorms raced thru my part of Oklahoma last night, the winds have calmed a bit. They had been out of the South at sustained 35-40 mph with gusts to 50 mph. I was starting to go crazy from it…..literally.
In the very near future, I am going to make a day trip out of town to Bartlesville. I need to have some jewelry appraised for our home owners insurance. I am hoping my jeweler in Bartlesville returns my calls today, he will most likely be the least expensive. He is familiar with all of the items.
I’ve never actually paid someone to appraise jewelry before, will it be very expensive? Do they work by piece? I am taking 4 rings and a tennis bracelet. I have receipts/certificates on all but 1 ring.
I have not been in the saddle in over 1 week. I need to escape. This weekend isnt looking good either, dang it.
Hub’s family on his mother’s side is having a big family reunion this weekend. He is looking forward to seeing some cousins and family he has not visited with in years. I am not too excited about going except to see them too. There are some people who’ll be attending that…well, let me just say, I do not care a whole lot for and can barely be civil to their faces to save the peace. But, I really like my MIL and I would do just about anything NOT to cause her any upset or discomfort. Ill stop now because I think some of the ‘family’ reads my blog……thought I caught one trolling the other day.
Wee One has caught 2 baby toads. They are scared sh*tless and keep trying to escape. Hes had them for 2 days, I was thinking about letting them loose tonite after he goes to bed and tell him they ranaway while he was sleeping.
Is this mean of me to do?
I kinda like toads and do not want them to die. If they were icky green frogs, I probably wouldnt bother.
Wee One and I have plans to spend the afternoon in the pool.
Does he look ready to you?
Marv, my biggest fan this week. I feel loved. Er, not quite loved but really liked…especially when the food bowls are empty.
I appreciate everyone’s input on how our Presidential Election is shaping up! Very good comments by the way. I am always up for a debate or to hear other’s opinions whether I agree with them or not. That is one of the best things about blogging and also, I must not forget, sometimes the only adult interaction I may have on a daily basis. Hubs is working long hours, Bubba’s teen-age grunts and nods do not count. That leaves me with Wee One’s company 24/7 and he keeps calling me a Bubble Baby…………………..what is that?!?!
