While the boys worked on the love seat and Matter (Aidan was using the tools to fix his car!) he had a snack and then informed us his tooth was loose. Another bite of the rice krispie treat and the tooth was out! His first tooth lost at age 5 and a visit from the tooth fairy tonight. He was beyond excited and had to make lots of phone calls to inform everyone. Then he wrote a letter to the tooth fairy to tape to his door - he is a wee bit afraid of things at night so she is instructed that the tooth is in the living room for her viewing! Too funny. At least it was a bottom tooth as pictures are this Thursday! It seems the one next to it is now loose too - I have a feeling the tooth fairy will be making some trips to our house this week.
Then I took a trip to get groceries. I pulled into the driveway and there was a snake! I stopped the car. Got my cell phone and called into the house....
Me: G.... there is a snake by the door I think and one in the driveway.
G: The one by the door is black and is fine.
Me: The one in the driveway is more colors than black and there are diamonds.
G: Hold on.... he got shoes on and checked it out. Yup, that's a rattler.
Me: I'm not getting out of the car.
He then went to the back shed, got a hoe and killed it for me. The black one slithered back into the bushes.
One dead snake, one other one gone. I finally got out of the car!
After that it was make dinner while G and the kids played soccer out back. Then a quick bite and pick up so we could go for a bike ride. A dip into the bath tub for the kids and off to bed.
As for me.... it is time to sit back and relax with some slow stitching. Too many things to choose from but it will either be some crochet on this baby blanket which is on skein three.... (new couch in the background).
Or some hand quilting on the apple quilt.
Hooking up with Kathy's Quilts - slow stitching Sunday. Head on over and see what is being stitched on this weekend.
