If you missed the start of this series, you can find it here. A lot of things will be the same or very similar.
Wednesday night’s sunset started very dramatic with a line of dark clouds along the top of the western hills. Then it just kinda fizzled out after the sun was down. It was breezy and chilly, so I didn’t mind going back inside earlier than usual. I heard the Parrots and took two pictures of them heading east. I didn’t realize they’d photo-bombed two of my sunset pictures until I was editing them. Shooting into the Sun is a lot of guesswork. I can’t really see to frame the picture well, and I have to hold the phone up, over my head to get above my fence and the neighboring yards. Anyway…
Daughter was lagging, and Ben was lagging as far a dinner, meds and the nightly routine goes. I admit I was irritated by it, I wanted to be done, but since there wasn’t much I could do about it, I kept my irritation to myself, and went along with the later schedule… bathing and cleaning up when the food had been eaten and the meds taken.
Blah, blah, blah… Stuff and Things. Yadda, yadda yadda… food, Food Coma, pill, real sleep with wakeups.
5:30am was when The Boys started my day. Ben was Captain Obvious this morning… “Gramma! I’m awake!” Nah, really? And yes, most of his statements are exclamations. I was very sad and confused to find the Coffee Dragon still sleeping. I thought I’d set it up, but apparently not. So I did that, and waited for the Burble and Hissing to be done.
While I was waiting, I looked out the kitchen window and saw a perfectly clear sky. No clouds meant no drama with sunrise, and no heat retention… in other words, too dang cold. I decided to skip sunrise today. I did take a stroll around the yard around 7:30am and didn’t even see any of my avian friends. I guess they all figured yesterday’s show was good enough. I’m sure they must have other folks to visit, other dumpsters to dive.
After finding some New Chalk for HRH, I refilled my coffee and settled into the dent for Couch Sittin Duty. Yee freakin haw!
Ben continued to do the chalk thang through his 9:30am med and his 10:30am med. He had Zoom School scheduled at 11:00am, but Daughter was still sleeping. I could’ve gone and gotten the laptop and attempted to sign in, but she was off work last night, and she’s off work tonight which makes the Zoomin her responsibility.
Daughter got up around 12:15pm. I came out of the baño and she was sitting on the couch. I said “Hi” she said “I didn’t go to sleep until almost 5am” I said “Okay” grabbed my stuff and went to get Horizontal, followed by Zeus, of course. Ben continued to do the chalk thang. A little while later she asked if I was mad, I told her I was done with being angry about it, she was gonna sleep when she was gonna sleep, and my getting angry only hurt me.
Ben asked for more New Chalk, so I got him a few more of the four packs. He continued to happily do his thang with the chalk. He did take a snack and tablet break for a little while, but went right back to the chalk. I was glad it held his interest. Everyone is happier when HRH isn’t restless and bored!
No Driving Miss Daisy tonight, so no time schedule to keep to. The most difficult thing about the rest of the evening will probably be cleaning up all the chalk… and all the dang chalk dust. At least it’s tile and not carpet.
Today’s thing that I love for Paula’s daily lurve prompt is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, or in this case Hearts. I like the shaped ones better cuz they have more nom nom peanut butter.
When I saw Kristian’s post with the WOTD being Fantasy this song came to mind.
A pretty good day overall. I would’ve liked to stay in bed longer, but when HRH commands, I don’t have much choice except to obey. I prefer he NOT start with the door kicking, which is his go-to when I don’t move fast enough. And thank goodness for Crayola sidewalk chalk! Daughter goes back to work tomorrow night, so I forsee a visit to the domain of the Quarter Lady tomorrow. There will probably be another trip to some store for more snacks, or maybe a delivery. Tomorrow will probably be busier. But with Casa Cuckoo, ya never know. ¡Hasta mañana!
