My mom and dad are here! 🙂
You know what that means – lots of laughter, lots of food, and lots of projects!
Pedro and Dad were carrying in a door frame for the boys closet within 2 hours of his arrival yesterday. That frame now has a really cool vintage bead board door in it! He worked himself out of projects this afternoon which gave him time to enjoy some fishing with Buddy.
Today our morning began with the annoying sound of the Amish neighbor’s train whistle at 5:45 AM and ended with an archeological dig in the dishwasher to see why it wasn’t cleaning my dishes. (I’m just glad it wasn’t an autopsy!)
We hit 2 Amish stores, 2 garage sales, 2 grocery stores and 2 thrift stores.
We enjoyed a decadent mocha cream brownie, a spicy rich apple crisp, and a pan of super hot poppers.
We took walks, picked vegetables, and sang along with The Music Man.
And we laughed.
Trust me – grocery shopping is much more fun when Nana is pushing the cart! Who knew she felt so strongly about protecting my lettuce?! She even held it in her lap all the way home! You should have seen her jump when Dagmar pretended to put the ice cream on top of it!
Then there was the Amish woman who sideswiped us at the grocery store in her effort to get to the sale flour before we did. We stared in astonishment as she used her cart and ample back side to block us until she had all the flour she wanted.
When she had backed off a little, I slid in and grabbed 2 bags. I would have taken more – but I was more than a little scared of her!
Couldn’t you just see the headlines?! “Local Woman Accosted by Amish Grandmother in the Baking Aisle of Neighborhood Grocery Store”.
I’m sure Dagmar, Angel Girl and Nana would have protected me with the bag of sale bananas! 🙂
And the fun’s not over yet! Tomorrow’s agenda includes 2 estate sales, another garage sale, a couple projects, and more time at the pond fishing.
Happy weekend everybody!
