don't do that
Alice sent me this.
I had been trying to imagine her voice -
Now I fear I'll spend the morning listening to more of the same.
I say fear because I have much to do....
I feel, this morning, like I was at a big party last night. There was a flurry of conversation at twitter and I was pal-ing around with, uh, my pals. One must type quickly on twitter and click refresh all the time to see what others are saying in real time.
I so wanted a cigarette. When Schmutzie went out for one I wanted to go with her.
I told Susan that I'd give her my list of thoughts on the gowns last night, at the Oscars, but it involves a long post with photos. I'll try and put something together later today. Must find pictures and then cross reference.
My boys spent the entire weekend outdoors in the snow.
A complicated series of ramps, hills and jumps was constructed, enabling the rider to be hurled with some height and force toward the french door of the kitchen.
Coats were shunned, but helmets were worn.
I was sure someone would need the emergency room.
They jumped and built and even fashioned a slope that ran the length of our property and no one ever got hurt.
They were out until after nine last night.
In other news:
our snowball is perfectly intact.
The little girl next door asked, on Saturday, if she could add two balls to it to make a snow man. I thought about it. Her mother is always bringing us baked goods or asking advice about this or that and has been handy when we need an onion or some milk.
But I had just posted about our snowball and I wanted to hold onto it. I wanted it to stand as it is. The boys looked at me with a little panic in their eyes, as I might say yes to her.
I was very brave and said no.
I told her, and her mom that we had built it together and I wanted to look at it.
It wasn't easy to say no, but I did. Her mom dismissed it easily enough and they went off and built a snowman.
A wave of relief spread over us when we realized that I had made the right decision.
