Happy Monday To Ya

So I’m sitting here in the kitchen with a steaming cup of coffee in my hand and a black and white Pomeranian at my side, gazing out the window at the goldfinches that are (quite impatiently) taking turns at my bird feeder.

I’ve been up since 6:30 because someone– I won’t mention any names, but I share a bed with him and his name rhymes with Muss Laff– was snoring. Enthusiastically. And since he was so blissfully unaware of it, and sleeping so soundly with his little hands folded as if in prayer, I took one for the team and quietly tiptoed out of the room. I also may or may not affectionately called him a little name as I did it, and I won’t tell you what THAT rhymed with.

We’re all going to Bell Buckle later today to look at a house that Madi and I have already seen (and love), but Russ and Charlotte have not. And yes, discretion is the better part of valor, and it’s probably not a good idea to wear my real estate heart on my sleeve but as you guys know, my philosophy is that something doesn’t really exist until I’ve discussed it to death. Also, anticipation loves company. So hold a good thought, and as soon as it is appropriate I’ll share pictures… (Picture me making air quotes around “appropriate.”) (Also picture me winking and making double shooty fingers at you.) (Because that would be funny.)

In completely unrelated news– goldfinches appear to have impulse control issues.

Anyway, I’ll leave you with a little video I saw yesterday that was just too adorbs for words and kinda made me want to have another baby until I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and remembered, “Oh, yeah.” So I’ll just hold out and wait for grandkids, though not any time real soon (I’m looking at YOU, Madi), but anyway, enjoy:

    I hope everything works out in Bell Buckle…hope you have lunch at the cafe and an ice cream for me @ the ice cream parlor…

    You have my condolence with the snoring. I know that death has been discussed in my bedroom several times, but even with that threat in mind, it continues. Good Luck…..

    Love the babies! Remember though, to recreate this moment, you would have to have TWINS!! I know, I know, Sarah did the whole baby in later life thing, but remember she laughed. I think it was the hysterical IF-I-DON’T-LAUGH-I’M-GOING-TO-CRY kind of laugh cause God said, fine–you’re naming the child after that whole laugh thing,…

    Anyway, happy house hunting–let us know if we have to come and help pack!!! Have a great day with the family–even the snoring one. (Couldn’t figure out who that was from your clues–wink, wink!!)

    Wow !! Loved how the one twin was already practicing turning the other cheek !! = )

    Oh, and would love, may be destined for, triplets; if children should ever be in the picture. Apparently, I have a real gift with handling many two – three year olds at the same time. I think around 12 or 15 is my record !!

    And being somewhat autistic, I seriously suck at reading between the lines, playing guessing games, not having something spelled out to – overly clearly – in black and white AND in triplicate. (Uh-oh, there it is again !!) My first thought was of course the Pipster, but then remembered he’s no longer with us. May be up all night over this one = / I do think I may have caught on to the name you may have – affectionately – let slip, though. Funny how these things work !! (I’m now winking and making double shooty fingers at you, Tori)

    Did you get a new dog? A Pomeranian? I think Pomeranians are beautiful.

    Love the picture! It’s my new screensaver. Thanks.

    Can’t wait to see the new house—–when it’s “appropriate”. LOL (I’m all over “appropriate”!)

    Those babies were re-enacting the War of the Roses.

    About that snoring…..do not bother that fella, you might mess up his singing, for heaven’s sake.

    Heavy duty prayers going up for that house in BellBuckle….I want it to be the dream of three Taff girls……with a dream tractor in the garage/barn.

    Those babies cracked me up! But the one who had it first didn’t end up with it last….maybe.
