TV delivery was a good way to ensure that AC would return home today from his business trip in PA.

Sam has been learning about monks in early medieval Britain and so this evening we had a “monk’s supper”: lentil soup, bread, cheese and apple. Sam helped make the soup but didn’t find it to her taste. No one should be surprised that she wouldn’t make a good monk 🙂
and the kids hunted for wild onions at the park.
Holes cut in walls. New outlets installed. Holes patched (still drying). I (wisely) spent all afternoon at my writing group and came home to a mostly complete phase two.
We haven’t owned a TV in about 6 years. Haven’t missed it much either, although we do watch some films and programs via video-on-demand or DVD. About once a week AC will drag his huge computer monitor up from the office so we can enjoy a big screen. That was getting old. The original plan […]
We got to ski in natural, real snow today and it was great. However, it was also so cold that I took few pictures because I was loathe to remove my gloves. By the end of the day my fingers and toes were painful, stabbing shooting, numb appendages that refused to work properly. The cold […]
to sled down the hill at Meade Park. It was better sledding than it looks!
Molly is very popular with the nurses.
Anvil and hammer at the Virginia Institute of Blacksmithing in Waynesboro. This is where AC will build his recumbent tricycle. The guy working there tonight said, “You’ve just stepped back in time 200 years.”
In honor of Pop-Pop’s 75th birthday today, his son made him a pancake, which he and Sam also consumed in his honor 🙂
Nifty community bike shop we found when AC was shopping for old bike parts that he’ll use for his latest project–a recumbent tricycle. He needed some head tubes from old beater bikes and when the guy at the shop finally grasped that AC didn’t want a whole bike, he said, “Oh! You want cadavres.” Yep. […]
It was cold enough to make snow up at the top of Massanutten, so today we skied in sun and blowing snow (I may actually prefer skiing in the rain–blown snow in the face is no fun). That’s AC and Sam ahead of me in the lift. *Somehow* I didn’t get into place in time […]
Sort of. As soon as the rain turned to snow, the French Club kids ran outside to taste it.
was played by Sam, in a series of plays the kids put on at the Discovery Museum today.
First thing AC does when he comes home early from a business trip? Clean the refrigerator condenser coils.
AC heads out of town on another work trip. Sam tries to stop him from going.
