My grandparents gave me Murphy when I was little, really little. I can’t remember a time before Murphy. He’s been with my through thick and thin. He’s had a few different outfits fashioned by me over the years but the one pictured here is the original. I have officially passed the torch. I was sort of back and forth about whether to pass him on or to just keep him in a box somewhere but that just didn’t seem fair. I say he has many years of comfort left in his fuzzy little body.
The afghan was a gift from out old lady neighbor at our last place. She has since moved away too but mailed it to us when she heard we’d had a baby. Chase loves to snuggle it. My goal is to have it printed and to send it on to her. Chase is a lucky baby, she has no shortage of cozy afghans to choose from.
We got a call today saying that they want to deliver our furniture on FRIDAY. I haven’t even started shopping for a mattress yet let alone bought one. Nor have we even taped the room for painting. 4 to 6 weeks they said… this is awesome and sucks at the same time! I guess I’ll try to find a mattress tonight. They only stock queens in the store there so that won’t work. If I order from Costco online the mattress will probably take months to arrive while the bed came right away. I’m thinking I should just go do mattress discounters or something… maybe the bedding barn :)
I made the blueberry pancakes tonight and the bacon that we got from ole pioneer kitchens. Dang! That’s all I can say. That was some good bacon. I did it in the oven so it stayed flat and got all crispy. I ate three pieces but I could have eaten three more. I restrained myself because I have coffee ice cream for later. If I was more adventurous I’d do some iron chef moves and make myself some bacon ice cream.
