Hi Blog! Another weekend has come and gone.
Saturday was windy and cold! Tom and Biggest went to the beach house to do some fishing and crabbing. Biggest has really caught the fishing bug! It’s great to see his enthusiasm.
While they were away, Littlest and I spent some quality time together. We:
shopped for Halloween costumes,
picked out Tom’s birthday presents (this Thursday! 45! Wheeee!),
made gluten free pumpkin muffins (yes, I’m back at it!),
did a little grocery shopping, where I managed to drop and shatter a glass bottle of tea tree oil in the checkout line at Whole Foods. Mortifying! Especially when people started to wrinkle their noses and say “What’s that smell?”
went on a gluten free pizza and frozen yogurt date,
and watched Zootopia while cross stitching!!!
On Sunday, we dragged the Halloween bins down from the attic, which led to hours of trying on old costumes and giggling hysterically. Here’s a random sampling of what we modeled:
Red Riding Hood/Wolf
Monk with pug head
The BEST part is that I found a costume that I made for Sammy when he was just a puppy. He wore it to a costume contest and won. He was even featured on the evening news! Sammy has put on some weight over the years (sigh… haven’t we all?) and it no longer fits, but Charlie was able to be squeezed into it! HA!
The WORST part is that it’s been a few years since I’ve worn some of these costumes too and could barely get them zipped up. Sammy, I feel your pain.
Charlie, afterwards, obviously trying to forget the entire ordeal. Sorry, Charlie!
