Number 8

Eight year anniversary! We went to Pappadeux for lunch. That has been our tradition for five years now. They didn't have mahi mahi this time. I got naked salmon with an interesting salad. Maegan got Alexander Salmon. I think I need to get that next time.

Just as I was falling asleep, I had one of those micro dreams that take just a second. I woke myself up with a gasp, saying, "Make room for the platypus."

Time Flies

Has it really been a year since I last updated this thing? Apparently. I'll stick in a photo I took recently.

Here's one I took New Year's Day. We had game day all day long.

Digging It

One of the things we did around the place on Monday was to move some dirt into the low place in the road. About the same time I found some kids' tools in amongst the other garden tools. The kids really enjoyed helping. Sure, I could have gotten more done faster without their help. But I try to remember patience. The point isn't always to get things done, but why it's worth doing and who it's for. And I really want to encourage my kids. Not just in that work is okay, but that it's good to spend time with the family, too.

Baby Fingers

Fingers are fascinating
Wonder if tasty"

Visiting the old house

Justice likes his Lo Mein. Or as he calls it, "Chinese spaghetti."

I finally got the particle board put in under the sink. It definitely looks like a patch job, but it costs way less than replacing the whole cabinet. The notches down the center are pocket holes. The whole board couldn't fit in with that vertical bar in front. So I cut it in half, then used the kreg jig to out it back together. Now that it's no longer a hole to the foundation, I'll be able to crawl under there to replace the kitchen faucet sometime soon
