Visit With a Healthy Toddler

I got to spend three days last week with Mr. B. and his parents, and amazingly, he was healthy which made us all happy! His Mom said that he was fond of twice baked potatoes, so we made some. He went crazy for the beaters when I mashed the potatoes. Once baked, he loved that too, but he tried to share the skin with the kitty, who wasn't having any of it.

Kate said that he liked vanilla yogurt, and I'll let the picture speak for itself. =) He ate continuously while I was there and even offered to share bites of his waffle. (Icky, but his heart was in the right place.) We had all sorts of fun and he was a good sport about the quilt shop, having been indoctrinated early.

On the home front, we have been working in the yard every afternoon and have moved through about 2/3 of the flower beds. Our nasty clay soil, though heavily amended when we first planted, is back to it's usual self in some places, so we are amending yet again. Thankfully, our homemade compost is saving the day.

On the book front, I finished Amalgamation Polka by Stephen Wright, an odd tale of a young man born to abolitionist parents in the pre-Civil War era. Very quirky, but entertaining.
