Mr. Clean Will Clean Your House And Everything That's In It

I've always thoroughly enjoyed the fact that Pipsqueak likes to pretend to clean--he dusts, vaccuums, sweeps the floor, washes windows, etc. Aside from the fact that this pastime is cute and entertains the company, I'm banking on him being a big help around the house when he's a bit older. If Pipsqueak manages to get his hands on a papertowel or Handi-Wipe, he's instantly off to wipe the glass coffee table in the living room. But apparently, he doesn't understand the difference between a Swiffer cloth and the Kleenex that mama just used to clean his messy nose. No, he didn't attempt to blow his nose with the Swiffer cloth. Let's just say, the coffee table and two glass end tables, along with the front of our gas fireplace, and the storm door all look a lot more smeared than usual.

Oh My Papa

The only thing I'm able to think about right now is my dad. He's back in the hospital. It seems the stents that were put in an artery to unclog it (following his heart attack a few weeks ago) didn't do their job. If you're a praying person, would you please say a prayer for Cal? Thank you.

The Small Things

(Inspired by a favorite blogger)

Small Things:

Red, yellow, and purple tulips blooming in the backyard

Being gifted with a fist-full of dandelions picked by Punkin Head

Watching a toddler learn to sing

Eskimo kisses

Wide smiles from my 8-month-old nephew

Perfect, tangerine-colored roses from Safeway, of all places

Female cardinals in the birdfeeder (They may be drab-looking, compared to their striking, red male counterparts, but we know the red ones wouldn't exist without them.)

Funfetti birthday cake and ice cream

Vinyl placemats in Popsicle hues for dining al fresco
