Yes, I know it’s Friday. I had grand plans to do this on Monday morning but I must have done something crazy like worked hard all day instead.
But another weekend is upon us. So here’s the recap from last weekend.
We were going to go swimming, but I had a horrible migraine, so we kept it low-key.
On Saturday, there was jumping in the basement (when isn’t there?)
There was also a lot of fun with with a water slide in the front lawn:
The kids were excited (especially when I found two attached snails who were mating). And so was I. Snails = chicken protein source. 🙂 Duncan didn’t like the idea at all, however, and protested my plan to put them in a container to take home and feed to the chickens. Putting them in a container was fine, though. So we did that part.
And then there was singing:
I presume they learned the first song — along with alternate lyrics — at school.
It turns out that Duncan was right about feeding the snails to the chickens. Mostly because the chickens ignored them. They munched a couple, but didn’t go after them with the hearty gusto I expected. It was disappointing. I never thought I’d watch a snail escape:
This weekend looks to be a quiet one. I’d like to make it to the library, but everyone is coming down with colds, so it’ll probably involve movie-marathons and lying around moaning (the kids, not me). No promises on when you’ll end up hearing about it, though. 😉
