Some days I like the quiet and some days it gets to me. Now that Gary's quit his job, he's home most mornings. Today, he listened and followed along with some church sermons in Finnish. I was doing my own thing with my reading and dish washing duty. Why do I always get left with the big pans no one wants to tackle from dinner(s) the night(s) before?
I did go out later this morning. Someone took/stole Sam's school uniform tie a couple of weeks ago when he took it off in the gym shooting baskets. One minute it was on the floor by his backpack, the next minute, gone. Whoever heard of a tie being stolen? No sign of it in the lost and found, either. I guess they are a hot commodity at his school. I guess it could be worse.
Anyway, I saved the day for Sam and picked up a new one to drop off at the front office. Next to that amazingly long line of McDonald's sacks brought in because someone forgot or needed a lunch.
The weather's calmed down a bit since this morning and the kids are out riding their bikes. I've got my apron on. The baked beans are cooking away in the oven for dinner.
Nice and cozy here.
