I am contemplating a fire in the fireplace.

I actually wish I didn't have a fireplace, because it is mostly a waste of wall space down here in Dallas. But, every house has one.

Yeah, I've always used tennis balls. Of course, I don't need anything now, since I drive a MINI.

I thought about using a tennis or Whiffle ball, but then I figured that someone would play with it. I'd have to hide the tennis racquets and Whiffle bats, lol.

If I lived near you and had access to your garage, you would come home one day to find a fish hanging from your bobber.

Just made lunch for Tyler - he looked in my fridge and asked for celery sticks with peanut butter, an apple, a Cutie, ham, cheese, and crackers. Couldn't argue with those choices.

Switching the laundry over from washer to dryer, and will probably go outside and play ball with him when he's done with his lunch. School starts back up Monday, so these full vacation days will go back to the normal after-school hours, with homework.

Your little guy always has the best healthy appetite Cheryl! When my sons were young they were never into junk food either, nor did I even have it in the house.

As far as what I'm doing...I just got up from a nap as I slept so lousy last night. The good news is my back is better and I put the cane back in the closet. Whoo Hoo!!
Hopefully I just had a hitch in my getalong.
