We finally had good weather today and I did a little spring cleaning.
Don’t worry, I didn’t rip the rugs up and beat them with sticks or anything, I just cleaned the kitchen and mopped the floor, hosed off the window screens, and vacuumed while DH and DS cleaned the windows.
We had all the windows open and screenless during the process, and the cat thought she was in heaven. She made a game of going in one window, walking across the room and going out the other. She was mightily peeved when we put the screens back in the windows.
No, she still is not using the cat door ~ stupid cat.
L worked really hard, as is his style. He is a perfectionist and likes to work, when everyone else is doing it.
A didn’t work hard at all, again, typical. But as he is still recovering from strep I didn’t expect much from him, either.
DH took the boys shopping for Sunday dinner this afternoon and came home with two Rubiks cubes for the boys and a couple of hand-held games (Tetrus and Yahtzee) for me. L has been begging for a cube for many moons. Part of his house cleaning was an attempt to earn himself the toy. So we decided to get him one to take with him on the trip to Wyoming.
A gets one ~ well just because.
I didn’t expect the games but I am thrilled. I have worn my other games out playing them. I like to play them while I watch television, because it gives my hands something to do. Sure, I could fold laundry or mend clothes, but what would be the fun of that!?
L loves math and thought he could just pick up the cube and twist it together without any thought. He can’t. It’s driving him crazy. If he doesn’t actually throw it out the car window on the way to Wyoming he will have a great time with it.
A is our sports kid. He has been throwing and catching the cube as much as he has been trying to solve the puzzle.
I shot up my card on my camera watching them play with the cubes. I have a layout in mind for the photos that should be really cute. I’m sure if you think very hard, you can figure out the basic layout design.
I hope to get back to my scraproom tomorrow after church. I had all the photos printed and haven’t touched them. Maybe I’ll take a few layouts to work on when I go to Wyoming too, or maybe not, we’ll see.
