We’ve had a few things going on that have been keeping me from doing any writing. Last weekend, we had a pumpkin carving brunch party during which Mama and I found time to carve these pumpkins. It was a great time with many (recently) ex-coworkers, many sourdough waffles, much maple syrup from Grammy’s farm, a delicious strata from Mama, and no fingers lost during carving.
On Sunday, we met up with a friend of Mama’s from her days at the UNF. Mama and her friend talked about life as consultants while I chased 3B around. The next day, I showed up at my new job, which exhausts me by requiring me to think all day long. I’m telling you, it’s a workout. As regular readers will attest, my brain isn’t a muscle that I’m used to using.
The fatigue hasn’t kept us from enjoying Halloween, however. Today was 3B’s day at day care, and Ms. K called us last night to ask us if he had a costume, since some of the other moms were hoping to dress up all the kids when they picked theirs up and take some pictures. We sent along the monkey costume that we’d gotten for 3B and got back adorable pictures of the kids, including a scowling 3B. I’m not posting any here, since they include the other kids, but we did get some pictures when we went down to D&D;’s house, where 3B did his only trick-or-treating.
For the record, we introduced two new foods today: asparagus and Three Musketeers bars.
The asparagus wasn’t such a big hit.
