Honey of a Morning

I was making my bowl of cereal this morning and thinking about coming downstairs to write my blog.   Davey was eating his cereal and watching Agent Oso.

As I was fixing my cereal, I noticed a puddle on the counter next to the stove.  It looked kinda golden and thick.  Honey.  The other day I’d put a jar of honey in the cabinet right above.  Sure enough, when I opened it there was the jar on its side, and the entire shelf was almost covered in honey  (Someone had not screwed the lid on correctly.  (Someone = me.)).

Ugh.  Honey is not easy to clean up.   However, I’ve learned that a bowl of really hot water and a rag works ok.

Ok  now that that’s cleaned up, I can write my blog (although I worry that I will find remnants of stickiness forever – more likely David will).

We’ve got to leave for tumblin’ in a little bit.  Koko’s outside for the moment.  She’s doing better I think.  She can kinda tumble/stumble down the stairs now.  She Hates to be picked up and brought down the stairs.  She about panics.  So I try to guide her the best I can.

So yesterday we took Davey to tadpoles and I got a few pictures.

Here he was working on his beginning stroke.  What form!

They look a little unsure here.

This week at the end of class, they have been swinging on a rope into the water.

Davey does great.  He’s never really on his own on the rope, but still, I am proud of how much more comfortable he is in the water.

He had an extra good day, because I think the teacher forgot to take him underwater.  They usually do it at the beginning of class, and he still doesn’t like it much.

We’ve gotten into a habit of stopping at McDonald’s on the way home.  Davey has been trying to get all the Clone War Star Wars guys, and I think he has them now.

David and Davey played a little too.  Davey looks like he knows what he is doing here.

He has no idea, but he has fun anyway.

Ok time to get going!

  1. i’ve had that honey mistake too… only it tipped in the far back of the cupboard so who knows how long it was there? i was amazed that i didn’t have large parades of ants visiting.

    davey’s got fine form with the swimming. I never did get my youngest into lessons this summer, but she could use some more… that takes care of sleeping late on Saturdays this fall, I guess.
