I feel compelled to post something, since I've been away from the blog for a few days. It's actually been nice, not worrying about a post or trying to write something interesting and timely. Our weekend was nice, especially having Mr. Geek home since Thursday. We went and got our Christmas tree on Saturday, since we were having such a leisurely weekend and didn't want to try to cram it in during one of the next few, in between parties, guests, and weekend chores.
Someone was not happy about having to go back in that carseat after getting to touch all the different kinds of evergreen needles.
This is a horrible photo of our tree, but I promise there will be better ones to come.
I took it last night after I had decorated it, and today was so gray and rainy that it was pretty dark inside.
Oh, and today, we woke up to GRAFFITI ON OUR HOUSE and garage. It's not like we're living in the inner city here in PA Dutch country. I thought there was an "unwritten rule" amongst taggers (graffiti artists) that you do not put graffiti on a house, unless of course it's abandoned. I assume I'm in the know about these things after teaching art to teenagers. It's only a little bit under the kitchen window, but of course the last residents of this house didn't leave any extra paint behind after they had painted the house. Once the rain and sleet stop tomorrow, Mr. Geek is going to try to scrub it off. If that doesn't work, we'll have to spray paint over it (it's too cold to cover it with latex). At least the garage can be painted over in white, and at least we are going to put siding on it next summer. So that kind of set the mood for the day--sleet and sloppy letters scrawled in gold spray paint. Ugh! Let's hope this week turns out better.
Tomorrow: SoJo and I begin our mommy and me swim class! Update on Monday.
