Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play. It's recess time!
I think we're going to have to get going on building the ark. It's been raining for 2.5 days already, and they're saying we're supposed to get 2-4" more inches of rain by Friday! Oy. I think some of my dad's sap buckets are in danger of floating away as their property floods...I don't think his friend came and pulled taps on Sunday like he'd mentioned doing. So if he's not home, my mom is going to have to go out and find the imperiled ones. I should have done that yesterday, but I didn't know we were supposed to get so much more rain. Sigh. I know he does tie them to the trees if there's flood danger but I'm not sure if they're tied or not.
The happy wanderers have a more relaxed day today. My dad and the other researcher have a meeting with tribal leaders to present more information on what they're doing, so the kids conned Poppa into saying they could sleep in and stay by themselves at the hotel and not go sit through a boring meeting! I believe ds' goal for the day was to watch Netflix on the Kindle all day, LOL. I guess, for all of the hiking (and pothole discovery) they did yesterday, they probably deserve to sleep in and relax today. Yesterday was quite strenuous, but reported to be pretty fun too, except for dd's period starting so she was a bit cranky by the end of the day. (She complained to me and I suggested a nice looooooong hot shower when she got back to the hotel. She actually followed my advice and was in a much better mood....plus there was a banana cream pie purchased for dessert and that was...for her...as good as chocolate therapy! That's one of the two kinds of pie that she likes, LOL.)
I finished crocheting one slouchy hat for dd and started on the next one. She liked the photo I texted her of it. There's enough yarn left to make several more, and one of her friends really loves slouchy hats, so with dd's permission (to have matching hats, that is) I will make another one and give it to her friend.
I'm at work and dh had to go to a weighmaster class this morning, so the cat should be having a nice cozy nap so she can pester dh when he gets home, LOL.
