Love them or hate them? Whichever, this latest post from Cape Buffalo should brighten your day. It certainly did mine.
Elcie is watching the new Charlotte's Web. I'll be interested to hear her review. She's in love with the original cartoon version. The other two are at the roller skating rink until ten. It's a once a month benefit for the PTA and a chance for them to have fun. The rink is closed to all but the kids from two of the middle schools and their parents. Kids pay $4.50 for 4-1/2 hours; parents get in free. The girls are old enough now for me to drop them and pick them up.
Did I mention we have kittens again? One of the neighborhood strays who drops in for a visit from time to time decided our living room would double as a delivery room. I was afraid of that. Three of the little varmints; one calico, one sort of tiger stripe, and one orange. I'm pretty sure I have homes for all three and then I'll figure out what to do with the mama. Meantime, we moved them to a box in Elcie's room.
Ray and I went shopping earlier and then stopped for coffee. I've missed his not being well enough for the two of us to get out even if it's just for errands. Now that the weather is better, we'll do more of it.
The girls are out of school for the next nine days. A friend gave us 4 new board games, I have a few cooking projects planned, and possibly a picnic depending on the weather. This weekend is supposed to be damp so we're not sure. They have bikes and skates, jump ropes and sidewalk chalk. Crayons, paints and books. They'll still probably be bored by Tuesday. Elcie has a camp-out (Mayor's Friendship Camp) on Thursday and Friday courtesy of the City of Merced Parks and Recreation Dept. That might be a good time to plan something else for the siblings.
Rochelle went on a field trip to the University of California, Merced campus today but we were in such a frantic hurry to get them to the skating rink, I forgot to ask her about it. I've been out there for meetings and social events but I haven't toured the (incomplete) campus yet. It's a work in progress.
No new word on Carol as yet. Ray and I plan to go early tomorrow and Rebecca wants to go along. I have some misgivings but she said "I really need to see her". I'll talk to her again in the morning but if she persists, I'll take her. She's old enough to know her own mind. I think she wants to reassure herself her Grandma is still alive even though I promised her I would never keep something like that a secret. She's asked me that more than once so obviously it's something to take seriously. I'm never sure what Rebecca's thinking (or any of them for that matter).
Ray and I are enjoying the relative quiet with two of the three girls out of the house. Watching the Giants vs the Dodgers at the moment. I can type and watch t.v. at the same time but I'll need to make sure my fingers didn't start off on the wrong keys.
Thanks to all for the comments if I don't get back to all of you. Take care and have a great weekend.
