Like the White Rabbit said to Alice, "I'm late! I'm late!" I have not had a chance to get on line at all today. Every time I turned around there was another mess to clean. Our dvd player broke so we had to disengage it from it's home on the entertainment center. That required moving knick knacks, dusting and putting knick knacks back.
Then, our ceramic soap holder, loosened from the humidity, fell off into the bathtub. We need to buy some new stronger adhesive for it.
My daughter has a friend over today and tomorrow she is leaving with her friend and her family for a camping trip. Last night we had to get all the sample sized shampoos and stuff and she decided she needed a new duffel bag. I will miss her while she's gone. I don't think she's getting back until Monday.
The Alice in Wonderland mug reminded me of the first edition Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking glass book my Grand Da gave me. It had Victorian era pictures through out and the pages were thin and yellowing. Sadly, I left it at my mother's house when I went into foster care and I haven't seen it since. But, I do have the memories and I found a very nice edition in a bookstore a few years ago.
Of course the Cheshire Cat is my favorite. :)
Cricket managed to behave herself after all of the kids left Sunday. I haven't had to clean up after her so far. Our weather has finally calmed down. There has been some flooding in communities near rivers and lots of people lost power. Fortunately we kept ours the whole time, but we do have a weird theory about why our dvd player broke. It stopped working right after the last round of heavy lightning and my husband used his meter to trace it to the power supply. He said typically a surge of power would cause it. I had wondered if perhaps lightning had caused it because I had heard of it traveling strangely like that. He thinks that could be the cause. That's a little too close for my comfort!
I hope I can visit as many friends as possible tonight and tomorrow. I think I will probably have more time on my hands later this week with my husband at work and my daughter camping.
Have a really great week! (((Hugs)))
