One week a month, Marc works late most evenings of the week. That would be because he's an accountant -- working specifically in Inventory Accounting at Cessna. During that one week a month, they're "closing out the books" from the previous month.
Well, this is that week this month. So, Luke and I know that we'll be "two peas in a pod" this week.
I mentioned in yesterday's post that tonight is the University of Kansas vs. University of Texas basketball game. Marc's a HUGE Texas fan. Since Marc wouldn't be able to see Luke awake today (because of work), he requested some photos of Luke in his Texas shirt. I did e-mail them to Marc at work, but here they are for the rest of the world to see.
Luke and I ran an errand late this morning. After the errand was completed, Luke said, "Chhhh," from the back seat. I knew that meant he wanted to go look at a train. So, I drove him to the tracks....and it was Luke's lucky day. There was a train -- a LONG one. So, here's a photo of Luke watching a train.
I was microwaving Luke a single chicken strip tonight. I followed the instructions on the package and even lessened the time because of our microwave's high wattage and tendency to overcook. Oopssss....I know this doesn't look at all appetizing, and that would be because it's not.
It burnt and left a nice smell in the kitchen. Marc actually just recently replaced an old smoke detector in the kitchen. The new one is a bit sensitive. Fortunately, though, it didn't go off for this burnt chicken strip.
And yes, I did fix him another one. I did much better the second time, and Luke did eat it :)
We got snow again last night. We didn't get as much as some folks south of here, and we certainly didn't get enough to at all compare to some of you folks on the east coast. But, it was pretty this morning. (And you east-coasters can keep your massive snow amounts on the east coast).
Here's looking out our front door.
And, on our deck....I LOVE the trees in our back yard -- as well as our neighbor's trees. We actually have quite a few trees, relative to Kansas, of course.
This past Saturday evening, Marc and I had friends Jerry and Shirley over for supper. Jerry and Marc used to work together years ago. We keep in touch with this couple. I failed to get photos of them, but I will mention that Shirley brought Luke some bubbles. Normally, I don't like bubbles in the house, but seeing how cabin fever has hit us all, I've been blowing some bubbles in the house. Our carpet could use a good cleaning anyways. Surely, some other of you moms out there do this as well :)
I hope you can see the bubbles in these photos....The bubbles kind of blend in with the carpet. If you can't, use your imagination. Just trust me -- they're there.
Luke's been wanting more and more to eat with a spoon. However, he will only use it on his own if it's something like applesauce, yogurt, or mashed potatoes. He has yet to figure out that a spoon can also be used for things like peas, peaches, etc. Never mind that I show him daily.
He actually doesn't do too bad -- for only being 18 months old.
Well, how's that for randomness on a Monday? Until the next post....
