Weekend doing Diddly-Squat
Craig and Jack with a friend, Ed
We did some gardening but not much. I think the garden is starting to look good too. It's been a big job just to keep everything from dying as we are currently in a moderate drought and about 6.5 inches below normal rain for the year. A direct contrast to England with all the terrible floods. I saw Tewksbury on the BBC today and it looked like New Orleans all over again!
This morning we rang Craig's mum to wish her happy birthday then just kind of hung out. I'm reading a FABULOUS book "Nowhere on Earth" by Josephine Humphreys. It's historical fiction, set in N.C in 1864 and the heroine is one of those characters that you immediately fall in love with so I'm already dreading finishing the book because I'll miss her.
Last but not least, our Jack playing with a wooden puzzle Auntie Jenny got him. He dumps out the pieces and I put them back together to his great delight. Just this weeks he's started doing "bye bye" and talks a lot now. He's walking more but still plops down when it gets too much for him. The marks on his face are from a fall he had last Monday at day care. Now that he's toddling I'm one step behind him everywhere he goes!
