time well spent: a quiz

Can you guess how we have been spending our time these last few days?



If you answered...

Eating Sausage Pie (mostly sausage and cabbage in a pie crust.)




Driving to Lubbock. We had never been, it was pretty though the drive was three hours each way and there was nothing in between only horses and cows-- which is okay b/c horses and cows are pretty unless you need to pee and there is only a shack with one pumper for gas and a sign that say "gas, antiques, beer, fried catfish, and minnows".




Losing six teeth in eight days.



Eating a plum nearly naked.


Driving to Dallas. More horses and cows but I bought this 1941 book in a used book store, which makes everything okay.
Hadley studying excessively for Literary Criticism.






Training ducks who are now named Prudence and John even though we are still unsure if they are male or female. And yes that is me, brown and aqua match, eh?



They have grown really fast and are growing their soft downy under-feathers. I really love them.



Eating chicken and barley w/ mushrooms and tomatoes all simmered in beef broth and baked with cheese.


Building a ping pong table after baseball practice-- a going away gift...thanks, Dad!

Maggie is in Austin for several days on a speech/debate tournament. We miss her, especially the hundreds of headstands we watch her do in the living room. And trust me, she will love this picture.

So if you answered any of the above...wow, impressive. Otherwise I promise to write about more exciting things next time. Like the new Oliver+ S Spring patterns that came in the mail!

BOOHOO...I miss them! You look cute in the aqua and brown...but I didn't even notice the color combo with those BOOTS! WOW! Real boots! Are you becoming a cowgirl living in Texas? heehee! (don't laugh...I still have my RED cowboy boots!lol)
