Pumpkin will not have one of those perfect attendance school careers. She missed Friday thanks to a lovely case of pink eye. Did I mention she's already brought home one cold that hit all of us? Also I think we're starting Colds Vs. Us, Round II as well?
Penguin only likes the cylindrical wooden blocks. I think it's because they fit nicely in her hand, plus they're the only ones she can easily drop in through the shape sorter top of the block bin. In fact, that's what she's doing as I type.
Mr. Kluges has been busy-busy outside lately, trying to take care of things for the roof/gutter project, finish fixing and painting the storm windows, and in general taking care of preparing-for-the-winter business. This weekend he's priming and painting the decorative exterior gutter element. MUCH more on the roof/gutter project (with pictures) available here at the House of 42 Doors.
Me? I've been just trying to keep up with the tidying, clothes washing, dishes washing, cooking, CSA vegetables, cherry tomatoes, diaper changing, kid care, etc. etc. etc. This most recent cold is really wiping me out, too. Last night I sat in bed, reading The Thirteenth Tale based on AllKnowingJen's recommendation and drinking hot water with honey, lemon, and brandy from a thermos. It was a good, cozy night.
(But Tuesday was even better because it was our anniversary, I didn't have the dang cold yet, we got a babysitter (!), and went out to eat at a fancy restaurant. It was awesome!)
