Phone Dump

The back of the PB Jar. I was dumbfounded to see that it's allergy advise was in regards to peanuts. Cause, i'm just not sure anyone with a peanut allergy would have even been near the stuff, but hey!, you never know do you?!

Weekends around here consist of sleeping in until children bounce on the bed & then move forward to games of chess played while breakfast is often consumed. Chess & Checkers have been go-to games for our boys since they were 3. This beginners game of chess is what they learned on, but you know it's still their favourite playing pieces.

My sandwich toaster which rarely toasts sandwiches. I use it to cook burgers, steak, or chicken for quick lunches around here. Morgan likes to use it to cook bacon on. It gets a lot of work around our house!

The boy & I popped into the bookshop in town this week, one Mr S use to pop into from time to time & bring us home a fun surprise. We were oogling over all the fun books & couldn't resist taking a snap shot of the Classic Aussie books on the shelf. Those copies of The Muddle Headed Wombat, The Magic Pudding, Blinky Bill, & Snuggle Pot & Cuddle Pie were beautiful. I'd have loved to purchase all four of them, but I didn't. In fact, I didn't purchase any of them. Frankly, I think it was a sign of great restraint.

The Apple peeler was in use when we discovered the bag of apples we'd been given was a tad mushy. Rather then cry about it, I made a small apple pie & then told the guys we were having it for supper. They were delighted when I actually game through, even if there wasn't any cream for it. I did, however, serve them something a bit more proper later. We actually purchased this crazy thing many years ago when we had a half dozen apple trees on our property. Even with it, it took a good week to get all the apples processed & stored up so none went to waste.

The boys were delighted to get a package in the mail this week which contained many goodies including one of my old board games with a Harry Potter theme. They sat down & read the instructions themselves & set straight to work playing it. I've no idea if they were playing it correctly or not, but it kept them busy for several hours & they didn't hesitate to pick right back up again in the morning either.
