Yesterday we did school and then I ran errands. It was the 15th, so time for TNO. I’m glad we’re moving to another Whole Foods in January, the one at Belmar is too healthy. They had none of my favorites on the hot buffet and my plate looked like I was a vegetarian. I did have some good Virgil’s root beer though…and a creme brulee, so that part was good. We had a nice turnout and the Moms and Dad got to talk for a few hours.
Today I dropped the van off for a brake fixing, I think that will solve the wobbling problem that we’ve been having. We did school, Bethany finished up her finals and Grace did some semester tests, Hannah just did a few items on her list. She’s reading Little House on the Prairie right now, we’re going to have fun with that one. We just got a stack of books from the library, I am about to start reading this one:
It looks like a good read about a man who ‘After 20 days in a coma, Bauby awoke into a body which had all but stopped working: only his left eye functioned, allowing him to see and, by blinking it, to make clear that his mind was unimpaired. Almost miraculously, he was soon able to express himself in the richest detail: dictating a word at a time, blinking to select each letter as the alphabet was recited to him slowly, over and over again. In the same way, he was able eventually to compose this extraordinary book.’ We’ll be going back soon to get some more books to read over break.
This afternoon we’re making fudge and gingerbread cookies and maybe pumpkin praline cookies too. I need to have some cookies on hand for neighbors and for the homeless presents for next week….hopefully we won’t eat all of them today.
