Runs for Cookies: Friday Night time Pictures #113


I’ve all kinds of photographs right this moment…

Whereas Noah’s automobile was being tuned earlier this week, we had been brief one automobile for a few days. Noah had Jerry’s automobile at college, Eli drove his automobile to his baseball sport (he has to get there early) after which Jerry and I took my automobile to Eli’s sport. Jerry needed to depart early to go to work, so I figured I’d simply catch a trip residence with Eli within the Patriot.

Effectively, I had no concept what I used to be considering after I instructed Jerry to simply depart the garden chairs and wagon with me and I would deliver them residence. Eli’s girlfriend was using residence with us, Eli’s fishing gear was within the again seat, and all of his baseball stuff (catchers’ gear takes up a LOT of area) was within the hatch. I needed to sit within the backseat (his girlfriend provided, however I did not thoughts) with three garden chairs and a e-book bag on my lap. It was a decent squeeze!

Additionally, look how crimson my nostril is. I used to be carrying a thermal shirt, a heat cowl neck shirt over it, my heavy winter coat, thermal pants with denims over them, two pairs of socks, a winter hat, and mittens–also a heavy blanket wrapped round me–but it was nonetheless chilly sufficient to really feel like what I think about Antarctica to really feel like, haha. (It wasn’t simply me, prefer it normally is–everybody there was shivering! There was even freezing rain for a bit of bit.)

Jerry ship this to me and it made me giggle at how true it’s. I’ve 1,000,000 footage of my cats sitting in probably the most awkward positions on my hips, knees, head, and many others.

I used to be going to publish only one picture to associate with it, however here’s a entire collage, haha.

This time of yr is once we begin to see just a few squirrels with mange. I’ve a tube of Ivermectin and I put a bit of on a walnut to feed to the squirrels that I can see have mange. This squirrel… I really feel so sorry for her! She is lacking an ear and half of her tail, and she or he is within the early phases of mange. I gave her a dose of the Ivermectin; I’ve to offer her two extra doses (just one dose per week). One of many squirrels with mange is tremendous choosy and will not eat the nuts with Ivermectin. My dad advised placing a bit of peanut butter over it, so I’ll strive that.

Jerry noticed me doing my Duolingo lesson a few days in the past and he stated, “I wish to be taught a language! I’ll obtain the app.” I instructed him that Spanish is the best one, so he ought to begin with that. He stated that he needs to be taught Russian–hahaha! I attempted Russian just a few years in the past and lasted all of three minutes earlier than I deleted it. Jerry has by no means tried to be taught a language before–it wasn’t required in his school–so I used to be curious how it might go.

After which I used to be *shocked* when he was going by the teachings and really studying the alphabet and sounding issues out. He was truly sort of giddy about it! After the primary lesson, he was already telling me what letters make what sounds and saying some fundamental vocabulary phrases. I believe it might be hilarious (and superior) if we uncover he is obtained a knack for languages and by no means knew it!

I am sort of amazed each time I make seitan that I could make one thing from scratch that so carefully resembles shredded hen. It took a LOT of trial and error, however we lastly perfected it (Jerry is nice at making it, too). Recently, I have been loving it with a bit of barbecue sauce.

Just a few nights in the past, each of the boys had been residence within the night (together with Jerry and me) so we determined to do one thing a bit of nostalgic–eat ice cream and watch an episode of Bare and Afraid. (Ben & Jerry’s makes an incredible non-dairy ice cream known as P.B. & Cookies!)  Whereas we had been watching the present, Chick was tremendous fascinated with the entire wildlife (i.e. bees and fish). 

My weekly Friday morning image of Duck curled up subsequent to my head within the morning. I felt HORRIBLE right this moment as a result of proper after I took this image, I by accident dropped my telephone on us. I believe it primarily obtained my brow fairly than touchdown on him, although.

I used to be trying by photographs someday and I had an concept to do for Mom’s Day. I actually do not like Mom’s Day as a result of I do not ever need my children to really feel careworn about doing one thing or shopping for one thing for me. So, I made a decision that I would like to offer *them* a present on Mom’s Day. I went although photographs, selecting out all of the photographs of every of the youngsters and me, and uploaded them to Snapfish for printing. (I selected photographs of them individually–just Noah and me for his album and simply Eli and me for his.)

I purchased an album for every of them and I’ll put the photographs within the album, in addition to write humorous or cute tales about them on 4×6 playing cards to slip into the pages. I haven’t got the time or the supplies to make an precise scrapbook, however the picture album should not be too exhausting. I hope that they will take pleasure in trying by it and remembering all of the enjoyable stuff we have achieved collectively through the years.

I blame Duolingo for this e-mail that I obtained! I at all times unsubscribe from junk e-mail and after I clicked to unsubscribe, that is what got here up, haha. From the phrases I might make out, I guessed I most likely needed to click on “Sí” (sure) however then I questioned if I might be saying, “Sure, I would like extra emails, please.” I have never gotten any extra, so I am assuming I made the correct alternative 😉

As we speak was a wet day AND there was no baseball (that is the primary Friday with out baseball in weeks), so I made a decision to take aside some previous denims and prep them for altering different denims. I actually love the pair that I altered lately to make them mid-rise as a substitute of low-rise–they are tremendous cozy and they’re now my favourite pair of denims!–so I wish to add a second waistband to a few different low-rise pairs in my closet. I measured out the band of a pair that sat comfortably over my hip bones, like I needed, after which I took within the waistband on just a few previous pairs that I would lower up (like these American Eagle ones beneath). That means, I might add them to the low-rise denims, making them sit increased.

I needed to take out the half within the again between the security pins, so I needed to disassemble the band a bit earlier than placing all of it again collectively (backside pic). I nonetheless have so as to add the highest stitching (the orange thread) however I used to be actually proud of how the waistbands turned out. Now I simply have so as to add them to the highest of a pair of low-rise denims

I additionally lower off all of the pockets and zippers from previous denims for different makes use of. I at all times save the material from the legs as nicely, for including denim to straight leg denims (to make them flare), or for patching holes, or for reinforcing seams on previous favourite denims. I have been actually into stitching currently when I’ve time to mess around with it!

Okay, I’ll eat some dinner. I am ravenous! Have a fantastic weekend. xo
