I got the rug my Nana made – I LOVE it!!!
She did such a great job and the colors really match my house. I live in a very old (my house was built in 1900), cape style home. It is a very lived in place and I actually like it that way. A house without character just doesn’t have that warm and cozy feeling.
So I am sorry to blow off the posting yesterday. By the time I got back from Nana’s house it was dinner time and then we went out on a mission. Mr. D has two new buddies – Sonic & Shadow. You all know his obsession with Sonic – he is even into the comic books now. I promised him that we could go to Toys R Us and see if we could find him a Sonic. Well we ended up going to 2 because one had Shadow but not Sonic. He was so excited last night. I never thought that he was going to go to bed. This morning the three of them are snuggled under my heated blanket. I don’t think we will be leaving the house without his 2 buddies.
For breakfast today I tried something a little different. I started my warm bowl of goodness the same – 1/2 cup oat bran cooked with water. I then added pumpkin and a banana. The topping this morning was vanilla yogurt (I used about 1/4 cup). Oh baby, this was AMAZING. I think I found my new favorite breakfast. I always have a large container of vanilla yogurt for D so I will just have to sneak a few scoops for mommy’s yummies.
The yogurt added a little extra sweetness and a lot of creaminess. I love how the pumpkin and the vanilla flavors mingled – pure delight.
Today is a cleaning day. Unfortunately my father-in-law is unable to meet me there this morning. I will have to try to keep D occupied so that I can get the cleaning finished within a reasonable amount of time. I really don’t want to be there all day. I will probably make a TJ’s run while we are out.
I am so thrilled that we are having a little bit of warmer weather – see ya snow. The only thing that stinks about that is Otto get sooooo muddy.
Well have a great Friday. Any plans for the weekend?
