Friday Morning

December 3, 2010

Isn’t there just something lovely about Friday? Why yes, yes there is. It’s been a speedy, but very nice week. Some things that have made this week nice:

  • Last night, when I picked Bart up from work, he asked if I wanted to go to his office’s happy hour at the Domain. I quickly agreed and we called some of our lovely neighbors to see if they’d watch Ella. They said yes, but within seconds of hanging up the phone, Bart said, “I’d rather take her with us. I haven’t seen her all day.” And we did. She was delightful and sat quietly on Bart’s lap the entire time, stayed awake in the car home, and fell asleep in her own bed within about five minutes of our return home. I love that baby. And the daddy who likes having his baby around.
  • Bart had gone to lunch with his team and I’d had a really large late lunch, so neither of us were very hungry, but when we got home from the happy hour, I needed SOME food, so I made these banana-chocolate chip pancakes with peanut butter syrup. And they were, as they have been so often in the past, delicious. To my not-at-all surprise, Bart regained a bit of his appetite and had some too. Plus, I had the leftovers for breakfast this morning. 
  • This weekend, we’re going to Main Street Bethlehem which I am really looking forward to, most especially because it’s going to be in the seventies, unlike two years ago when we were freezing out there (and by freezing, I mean it was probably fifty degrees and thus our weak Texan bodies could hardly brave the cold).
  • Speaking of which, when we went to the Domain last night, Bart’s team was all sitting out on the patio. Bart and I were both wearing short-sleeves and our baby had on pajamas with a thin blanket wrapped around her. That is my kind of December.

And now it’s less of Friday Morning and more of Friday lunchtime. Which means Bart will be home for lunch soon and we’ll be having some excellent tacos. Also, I have dinner in the crockpot which means my house smells divine.

Happy Friday!

    Sounds like a perfect Thursday evening/Friday morning. Our weather in the fifties last week felt almost balmy; I think my blood is thickening, although I'd love to be in the Texas seventies.

    Well, it is freezing here, as in my hands are icy as I type but I love hearing about warmer winter weather. Reading this post made me think how organized you are as a stay-at-home mama/wife and how fun that is! Thanks for sharing-the pancakes sound delicious as does the tacos and crockpot meal! I, on the other hand, don't even know what I'm making for dinner tonight and lunch was 3 crackers with pb & j at my desk, no less.

    This sounds so lovely. I love how nicely your baby fits into your lives. I hope for the same with Piglet.
