Calvin had a very restless night last night.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 17, 2010 4:48 PM
Calvin had been asleep for 2 hrs when we picked him up at daycare.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 17, 2010 4:48 PM
He’s just now starting to wake up enough to interact.

Calvin is enjoying garbanzo pot pie for supper.

It’s a beautiful day outside so Calvin is eating his supper on the deck.

Just got back from the grocery store and already have things for my list next week.

Grandma is reading Calvin a story about going to the potty.

From daycare: “Calvin enjoyed painting ladybugs today!”

Made Puff Apple Pancakes for Calvin tomorrow with no added sugar and grated apples instead of sliced.

My most recent book order has arrived!

Hmm . . . the credit card account balanced too easily. I’m suspicious.

I was intoxicated by the books at the library today and brought home too many of them.

From daycare: “Calvin won our camel race across the dessert today in Shell Seekers! [next classroom up which he was visiting] So cute :)”

Made a curry with Pigeon peas. It’s . . . fascinating.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 17, 2012 9:51 AM
Me, “Good morning Calvin!” Calvin, in a whiny and still sleepy voice, “Don’t say that!”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 17, 2012 11:49 AM
Calvin appears to think I have the ability to fix everything with a hammer and a screwdriver.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 17, 2012 3:30 PM
I’m a little worried that if I clean our master bath too well, I might start harming the odd and fragile finishes.

I can’t tell what my kitchen plant thinks about the move to the new house.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 17, 2012 4:49 PM
Calvin’s room looks like mine use to, several decades ago. My sins come back to haunt me *sigh*

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 17, 2012 6:55 PM
Calvin does not understand, and is frustrated with, how long it takes to make ice cream from scratch.

At length, the side planter is done.
Side yard of house. There is a planter section surrounded by a stone wall with new plants and bark chips.

When cleaning up the overgrown weeds we also found potatoes.
A bunch of dirty red potatoes piled on a inside bench.

If we stayed longer at this house I would need to get more vases.
Large yellow rose cut and placed in a glass drinking glass.

I’m looking how much we’re spending on staying home and it’s terrifying: office chairs, fancy coffee grinders, takeout with higher than average tips, etc. The economy might not be doing well but it’s not our fault.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 17, 2020 6:25 PM
Oh, bookstores. How could I forget bookstores. (I’m getting plenty of books online from the library but I want the local bookstores to still exist when this is over so am buying more than I normally would.)

It’s oddly compelling to watch @calvinsdad progress, shared via Google Maps, as he drives back home. It even updates the street view picture every so often.
