I often say to Rory:
Can I keep you forever?
And a day?
Twice on Tuesdays?
and Double Scoop Sundaes?
Well, I have been doing a whole lot of nothing the last few days.
Rory has been sleeping something much more near normal, after all the commotion of the passed week. She woke up way way to early Sunday,As Ri kissed her bye on his way to work- saying she was hungry.
..I chatted on the phone some, sucked down a huge cup of coffee.. and got Rory ready to go on a bike ride. It was chilly waking up that early- but it quickly went back to the sweltering spring Florida weather it should have been. I was really glad Rory had talked me into tying her kitty toy on her bike with her tank top, so I could just get them to switch shirts.
Rory was pouty, probably should have had a little more sleep.She fussed about everything- IN THE park!!, you can't fuss in the park!
She just wanted attention.
The dog was being bratty at the same time, and had managed to find a hot dog (of unknown origin) on the ground near the grill and eat it!~gross~.
I told Rory I was going to call Aunt Lissy and tell her how she was being bad, Rory did not want that and behaved. .. I think more the thought I would spend even less attention on her if I was on the phone, than the telling Lissy part.
Came home and Rory colored and snacked on roasted califlower
for a little while before heading back outside to play.
We played frizbee and tried to get Noobie to join in, with no luck- Poor dog is too hot for all this Florida business. She laid in the shade watching. Then we picked some more blackberries, they are all pretty much gone now, because the crazy heat has them all dried up :( . Sooo Overheated when we came in.Rory stripped down and tried to nap, I wouldn't let her I woke her up having her help me make some crepes, and telling her " it is SUNday-you can't miss the sun!!"
She ate some crepes and decided that since it was Sunday she would need ice cream. After much grumbling about the darn Icecream truck not coming down her road we walked to the store I let her pick out an ice cream(we saw SIL Mel at the store too- where Rory told her all about the lack of ice cream delivery) ,and we raced home.
One day, felt like one hundred. I jumped in the bath, Rory came in and stole my relaxing bath from me. Somehow Rory still stayed up much later than I expected.grrrrr
She woke up, ready to go on another bike ride Monday.Well, more of a park trip than she wanted a bike ride. she wanted to take her kitty down the slide.It was far too hot. I didn't want to stay long.
Noobie giving up on me halfway to the playground
Rory wanted to wear this dress for some reason, I did get her to put shorts on underneath though.
The poor dog was walking from shadow, to shadow and laying down on me, I feared if we stayed much later I would end up carrying the big hot lug home! Rory finally gave in and came home
She is very girly, with her dress,purse and bike
She played around the house with little regard for tv, or anything else other than her little pets.
She helped me make 2 loaves of some simple bread. (which I messed up and added too little flour and it fell in the oven :( ). It still came out really good, Rory and I almost ate a whole loaf while it was warm.I tossed together some easy spaghetti for dinner
- AND Rory helped me pick up all the toys in the livingroom so I could vacuum! Another night of Rory staying up far later than she should have. ..but we were still in bed before 1 am.-woot-
Yesterday ,We slept in a little(yes, you can already see her schedule trying to revert itself , I will have to be hard on both of us to stay straight).
I was far ,far ,far, too hot to brave dragging the fat fuzzy dog , after Rory's bike again.
I talked her into staying around the house.We had a lazy day.
Rory was really really needy attention wise all day all day it was : " MOM,MOM MOM! can you read me this, can you make this toy talk"- and so on and so on.Listen, she isn't deprived,I spent my morning building block masterpieces with her. An hour in and she wanted me to play Littlepet shop- and I said no.That was one tantrum in our long day.ugh.
She didn't want to go in the pool surprisingly, but we did spend some time outside, she helped me water the compost(and got a little wet, including her shoes which I hung on Noobie's tieout to clean/dry)then I made her lemonade snocone and she ate it outside around dusk.
Then dug in the dirt and tried to figure out how messy she could get...and have a parade.
She did come in and get a bath after her parade.
She cleans up nice
Ri had told me he would bring me home dinner from nalus- but forgot, so he brought home Italian from the restaurant his buddy works at instead.It was good - pasta,soup, salad, eggplant parm- Rory ate really really good, It just wasn't really what I wanted lol.
He also found some ThrowbackPepsi on his way home. I had mentioned Rory telling me about how its been awhile since she "has had soda, and it is great sweet bubbly stuff". ..and he decided he has sort of been craving a cold drink too- then digging around at the convenience he found a pack of cans of the throwbacks with REAL sugar SQUEEEEE!!
Rory stayed up well beyond my grumpy point, despite my attempts to cuddle her into sleep.
She didn't wake up as late as I feared considering her bedtime. It was again far to hot to want to venture out much with her. She ate and we played outside for a bit. She made up a game where she hits her baseball the same time as I throw the frizbee .Then I filled up her pool and she played outside for awhile. I made a big grocery list, we will have to find a way to concur that tomorrow.
Lissy called from St.Augustine for directions to the taco stand Ri is working a double at today.
She got her license today- and a nice lunch from Ri :) .
She said she is heading over here soon. .. so I should really go clean up. I have a cute video of Rory outside playing Yesturday, but I am having shitty compu issues(I couldn't even get all the pics I wanted to upload -grrr), I will have to give the vid its own post another time.
I have struggled in soo many forms to get todays blog post up- I am happy to be finally closing it. -forgive me for any errors you find in it.. I just can't find it in me to make it perfect after how hard I tried to get it up.
PEACE AND TOFU CHICKEN GREASE,
