My day started with a laugh when I saw this on the fridge:
It was a toasty day ending in rather freaky greenish skies, WIND!!! and stormage. If you live in the States, or at least any of the tornado states, you likely know that green skies often preceed tornados. Sure enough, we were under a Watch this evening (conditions favourable for tornado development, as opposed to a Warning, which means that one (or more) has actually been spotted in the area.) It was cosy, though, cuz we were at TKD. If you're gonna die, do it with friends, LOL! I suggested that we do tornado kicks but only got groans.
This afternoon I was feeling rather pleased with my multi-tasking self as I was sewing shorts for Mollusc, had banana bread baking in the oven and had launched the kids on painting some tea towels for the Grandmas. Sadly, the banana bread sensed my smugness and imploded:
Too bad the picture doesn't really show how FAR it fell. *snort* The kids ate it anyway, and I have to admit it was pretty tasty regardless.
The Prawn had decorated a towel corner with a very nice ducky, then proceeded to disenhancify the towel with random splotchage. Oy vey!
And to top it all off, I kept making waistbands that were too small for Mollusc's shorts and then ended up with a finished project that had a slightly too large waistband. Plah! It was not my day.
Things improved when I went to teach little kid class. For a new twist, I had them do headstands against the wall during warmups and they ALL got their feet up!!! Too bad I couldn't get a pic of that. It was pretty cool. :-)
When I got home, Prawn wanted to change into her new dress for our class. It came with a matching dolly dress. Yes, I'm a sucker for matchie-matchie now and then.
Things got even better for our class, as I got to see a friend on her last day before she takes off to be a summer camp counselor. Another friend was back from her break which she had to take while training to be a phlebotomist (blood sucker, LOL!) Sparring was a series of drills and by the end of it, I felt like I had a hole in my stomach. We stopped by McDonald's on the way home, which was something different, and got 60 McNuggets. The guy thought we were joking. Obviously he hasn't seen my kids eat. They may be skinny, but they can put away the food like nobody's business. I think Gogo ate 15 McNuggets by himself, LOL! Yes, they're all gone.
During supper, Cheeto (the raccoon) came to the door for treats, so of course we gave her some. Trillian is fascinated with her.
I never end up with very good pics of Cheeto because when I open the door, she wants to come barging in (!!) and taking pics at night through the glass = crappy pics. :-P
