Friday Five: Hasty Pudding Version

ReverendMother sez: Whoops! I have been in a family-induced haze these few days, with the July 4 holiday and taking time off while relatives are visiting. So I literally lost track of what day it was!
So rather than make you guys wait even one minute longer for the five, I'll dig up an oldie:

Today, what are you:
1. Wearing
2. Reading
3. Eating
4. Doing
5. Pondering
1. I'm wearing baby puke. Seriously. I'm on my third shirt today and with taking care of Ainsley for the next two hours, I'm sure she'll get me again. We call her our little "frat boy:" she can't hold her milk any better than the yahoos at Tappa Haffa Kegga can hold their Busch Light.

Yeah - that's the look they had in "Rocks for Jocks," too. Is this an ill omen for our little girl's future?

2. I'm reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix for fun and Paradigm Shift in the Church by Christian Schwarz for professional reasons. I'm going to try to get through Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince before Deathly Hallows comes out on the 21st. Don't think I'm gonna make it, which of course will necessitate a reading of all the Harry Potter books in order. Drat.

3. I'm eating turkey brats for supper, with veggies of some sort and a small bowl of vanilla ice cream for dessert. *Everyone loves ice cream, yes indeed they do...*

4. I'm doing the Friday Five. Duh! But in a couple of minutes I'm going to collect the Child and we're going to go for some visits and then I'll try to write the rest of my sermon. Tonight and tomorrow I'd like to finish a couple of adirondack chairs I've been building as an anniversary present for my folks from my brothers and me.

5. I'm pondering how my child can nap for 40 minutes, exactly. We're talking on the second, here. It's bizarre.


  1. Wow, you builder you! Are you marketing the chairs? I could use some really nice chairs...!

  2. Ainsley has such a sweet face! Great play- keep pondering children and their habits- they never cease to surprise you even at 25!!!

  3. What a fabulous face on that girl! She's only trying to show you how much she loves you in the only way she can now. Soon she'll learn to speak English to say, "Dad, that milk needed chocolate!"

    If you find you've made more adirondack chairs than you need, I'd be happy to help out and take some off your hands.

  4. Poor Ainsely...I remember those days when I nannied for Braden...we used to feed him and then just put him over a shoulder and lean up against the sink to burp him...made clean up so much easier :)

    Sounds like summer in MN is moving right along!
