With this package I added a shovel and some seed packets. I am sending my lucky partner some sugar pie pumpkin seeds, lemon cucumber seeds, radish seeds, and broccoli seeds. So happy planting to my partner!
On to the Thank You! This lovely bit of goodies is from my good friend Cookie Girl, if you don't know who she is you must visit. She has cookie recipes that she shares with all of us in bloggy land and they are To. Die. For.
She sent me some cake decorating bags and tips, a cook book put together by the members of her Church, some red candy foil, mini cupcake cups, blue coloring, alomond oil, and some fun goodies to melt into candies. Forgive me Cookie Girl if I forgot anything. When I got the package I tore into it and made the cupcakes I posted on The Apron Goddesses.

I went to the dermatologist today because I have these things on my face. Bumps really, but I am a picker so they annoy me. Now I need to control my picking and accept that they are now a part of my appealing beauty. You know what they are? Barnacles....yeah, you know like the ones whales get, but different. Barnacles?! When did I turn into a whale and not realize it? How does this happen?
The dermatologist tells me that is common for people who are middle aged to get these and it's no big deal. And then he adds "You aren't that old", which I'm not and proceeds to tell me that he does see it in some young people...who are in their 20's. Hey, I'm still in my 20's! I guess I shouldn't shoot the messenger. I think I need to go have a good long talk with Father Time and Mother Nature. Who's with me?

So for the past two days we have been trying to stay cool in this crazy hot weather...with little success. I live in an old house that doesn't have central heat, nor does it have air conditioning. With any luck we will put in a window unit which really only cools off the living room. I guess it's better than nothing. When the window unit does go in it's because dear, loving hubby can't take the heat anymore...he is not fond of HOT weather. Back to the last two days....my house stays somewhat cool til about 2 and then it heats up and fast. We have been staying inside trying to stay cool, moving as slowly as a sloth so as not to produce heat from our movement.
Today the boys wanted to pull out the pool a friend gave us a few years ago. My BIL was home and together the boys pulled it out, cleaned it up, and proceeded to fill it up.....on his deck. Very redneck, hillbilly.....when you're that hot nobody even cares. The boys and their cousins had such a great time splashing, jumping, floating they didn't want it to end. They were very disappointed when I called them in for dinner. However, as soon as dinner was over they infiltrated Julia's deck and continued to enjoy the refreshingly cool water.
Apparently we weren't the only ones suffering the heat. Our birds were feeling it too. They look pretty funny when they are hot. They hold their wings out to the side, just like I hold my arms to the side in the truck with the AC full blast. They also have their beaks wide open and pant, almost like they just can't get oxygen quite fast enough. This is Rhodie, our Rhode Island Red, you can see his wings out and his beak is slightly open. Now picture all 15 birds like this. They stand as still as possible while they try to cool off.

Boy #2 will dig around in there and complain that he has too many boogies, if that is even possible. The problem is that he does so much digging that he makes the inside of his nose bleed, it scabs and then he is at it again thinking it is a boogie. He will also blow air in and out of his nose towards his brothers to see if he can speckle them with the vapors that come out. Boy #1 yells with serious protest...can you blame him? Boy #2 can be pretty disgusting at times.
Boy #1 likes to dig at story time. I can see him peripherally while I am reading and it just grosses me out. He is pretty good about stopping, but still. Boy #3 is just as bad as the other two. Yes, I know.....we all do it at some point, but they get out of hand. I just hope they don't do it in public the way they do it at home.
The new found talent of boy #2 is displaying his ability to do a "snot rocket". He has just figured out the technique and couldn't help but show it off yesterday.
"Hey Mom, watch this!"
He proceeds to do it, but ends up with a stringer (as I call it) down his lip. I took one look and laughed.....hard.
"Oh, yeah, that was a nice attempt at a snot rocket."
"Have you ever done one?"
"Yes, Boy #2 I have done them many times."
"Oh, I do it when I am running and when I play soccer."
"Do you ever get stringers?"
Can't wait to see what other topics of discussion come up. There is never a dull conversation around here....with 3 boys I think everything is covered.
