It has been a fairly ordinary week here at the Kraeger house. Just hanging out, working, playing with the girls. You know, that sort of thing. Deedee had a birthday on Sunday, and she turned 60!!!
We went out to lunch at a restaurant called “Shenanigans,” and let me tell you, there were some shenanigans.
Evie made herself right at home next to the window and kept calling out all the things she could see on the water. She also made friends with the man in the next seat. By the time we left she had dubbed him “Captain Tim” and also “Uncle Tim.”
Not shy at all, that one.
Then Evie and Ellie went up to Deedee and Papa’s house for the night, where they ate all the strawberries.
Evie found Mommy’s old hand prints!
Daddy continues to excel at physical therapy.
It’s a good technique.
With one arm out of commission, Daddy is trying to make time for reading, and is actually making it through some books, a little bit here, a little bit there.
Ellie is working out too.
The trick she is working on is called, “Pull myself up, any way I can.”
Which is ambitious, considering she doesn’t crawl yet. Who needs that, right? Skip the horizontal, go straight for the vertical.
Unfortunately, horizontal has a way of catching up with you.
Mommy has also been busy, as usual. Last week she made some plum jam and canned it.
She made a small batch because it’s more of an artisanal jam than one that you would put on peanut butter sandwiches or anything like that. It has a sweet, tangy flavor with a gorgeous color.
The rest of the week has been pretty much normal. Here are some pictures of it:
That’s all for this week, folks. Have a good weekend, God Bless!
