Bye-Bye Bazookas

Kate joined me on my morning walk.  I love my walks and I was so happy to share this experience with her.

At the end of our walk, she took a few pictures to share with her dad.

When we started out, I told her about my 3 mile route to make sure this wouldn't be a problem.  I learned she normally runs for 25 minutes, walks for 2 and then runs for 22 minutes.  I kept up with her just fine.

We had some time after breakfast before I needed to take her to BYU for her course this week.  I suggested she might play some of my music.

I picked a lovely Tchaikovsky piece I thought she'd enjoy.  She was doing so great -- no one would have known she was sight-reading. I walked around to get a better photo.

I know this face very well.

When she was ready, we left for Kneaders so she could get a sandwich to eat later.  Checking her in was easy, and I'll see her this weekend!

Fun things do happen when I'm not home.  After the excitement we had with the stegosaurus, I was sorry I missed this.

I have several emergency meals on hand before company comes.  This is food that is very quick and easy to pull together for a meal.  Today's meal involved using the basil which I regularly grow now.  Lunch was so delicious that there was nothing left to take a picture of when I finally thought about that.

Corinne was responsible for our dessert.  I was disappointed to learn that this was not a single serving container.

Three of us went to the pool.  We saw a family of Killdeer on the way.  They live in a vacant lot and blend in so well that this one was the only bird my camera could see.

Ben made a new friend.  Asher is the grandson of one of my friends.

Ben also played with some girls who live across the street.  He had brought five of my water blasters and all the kids were having fun with them.  When it was time for the girls to leave, their mother gathered up all the guns, both hers and mine.  I quietly watched her, wondering if I should say something.  I chose not to.  I am thinking this was a good choice.

This kid.  He can have fun anywhere, anytime.  Today was a great day.

Ten Starter Points and Three Extra Lives

I thought about chocolate chip cookies on my walk this morning. Since I was still thinking about them when I got home, I did something about...
