First I wanted to say thank you to everyone who offered input on Scooby and his morning waking. Before I gave any of the suggestions a try, I decided to use a bit of reverse pyschology. We live by the principles of behavioral science in this house. I started meowing and waking Scooby up when he was sleeping. My friend Ann did not think this was a good idea. She thought either it wouldn’t work or I would make matters worse with the cat. Saturday and Sunday morning we didn’t hear a peep from Scoob until Owen woke up–around 6am or so. This morning, Kevin was late for work! His alarm didn’t go off and Scooby didn’t go off either. If only Ann could see the smug look of satisfaction on my face. And the worried, upset look on Kevin’s.
I guess I came across Miriam’s blog via Margene’s–her being a Utah grrl and all…but she was in need of some Karabella Lace Mohair for a WIP. It is a lovely but sadly neglected yarn at Granny’s. So, I offered to send Miriam the last skein we had. In return Miriam sent me a beautiful hand bound book and some delicious cookies. They are lovely with tea. Thanks so much Miriam and I am so happy you can finish your shawl.
All of the kids are home today and just Cameron and Gracie the rest of the week. Cameron will be a peer model at Owen’s school tomorrow. And we will try to plan a few fun things for their vacation.
