Goodnight moon; dashboard cowboy; stuffed animals for sale; a very magical unicorn; and the izzy scoop.

26 Aug

I’m not even going to apologize anymore.  Blogging just hasn’t been happening in the past week.  Here’s what has been happening –

The moon was bright.  This was on one of Mabel’s walks late at night, post-meetings at church.

The trusty old dusty odometer turned to 111111.  I made five million wishes.

I went to an “antique” store.  It’s near where I live and I just had never been in there.  I’m in the market for something specific so I figured it was worth a shot.  That’s what I found.  Needless to say, they had not what I wanted.

I met friends at Chatterbox in St.Paul for dinner and games.  Paige met my college friends, Adam and Kara.  Then we went to Patina, one of the best stores ever.  Kara became a unicorn for a brief moment.

And then we ate Izzy’s ice cream because a few of us had never been.  It’s been voted the best ice cream in the Cities many times over. [Izzy’s is known for its Izzy scoop – a second flavor baby scoop on top of your cone or dish.]  It was while eating ice cream outside that a fly attacked my eye and Paige won’t let me forget it.  [Or my reaction.]

That’s what’s been happening.  Well, that and an ever-so-quick trip home yesterday for a family party.  [Birthday shout outs!  Happy birthday, Grandma!  Happy birthday, cousin Marissa!  Happy birthday – soon – to sister Emma!]  I was home for less than 24 hours but it was good.  It was a good reminder that I need to go home more often … I also got to make a hospital visit while I was home.  Krissy, a Banana, has been in the hospital for many days with likely many days still to come.  Ever heard of a spinal headache?  I hadn’t until now but uffda.  Nasty stuff.  I hope the coloring books and crayons I took her make the pain  just a little bit more bearable for even a minute or two .
