happy weekend

21 Jan

What a crazy day it has been!

I had my usual appointments (PiYo and tutoring) this morning, and then our realtor called this afternoon because the people who are buying our house wanted to show it to some potential renters.  So, I had to make myself scarce for awhile.  I went to Hastings  to check out the new Kris Carr book, but they were completely sold out…good for her! But bad for me.

Tonight we are going to a party with our Sunday School class.  It will probably be the last one that the husband and I go to (tear), so we’re planning on savoring every last minute.  Plus, I volunteered to bring cupcakes!  Exciting times:)

Sooooo, I’m off to bake…but first I wanted to wish you all a happy happy weekend!

Fun fact: when I was little I was known for catching ducks (by the way, I am aware that the above are in fact geese, not ducks).  I had a strategy and everything.  Get as close to the duck as possible.  Lay down a large piece of bread.  As soon as the duck starts in on the bread, snatch it up!  Sounds cruel, but I was only about 10 years old – a harmless little thing.  My duck catching days are over – now I am satisfied just capturing them from a distance.

What is something funny you were known for as a child?

    Catching ducks, huh? My mom said when they were little, they’d catch geese… but were kind of mean about it… I yelled at her, too- even if I am seriously scared of and dislike geese very much!

    LOL, that’s too funny. I was attacked by a goose that my grandmother had so I hate them with a passion!

    Funny enough, I was known for my fear of ducks (and geese)! When I was very young, I was throwing bread to a good and it chased me and bit me. I was scarred! I needed a duck catcher around me back then. I still have to keep my distance.

    Hope you have a great weekend and cherish times with special people!

    I used to call my grandmother, Geese, when I was little. She got a lot of funny looks when she took me out 😉
