The Sun Shines upon Tiny House
Lots going on this weekend. We attended a birthday party this afternoon at the Rail Road park. There was some rolling stock, a steam locomotive, and an enormous model train layout on display. There was also a scaled down train that folks could ride in a circuit around the park. You’d think I would include some pictures of the wonderful old rail cars and the engine, but that would be tough to do as I forgot my camera. I hate when that happens.
My daughter-in-law flew into town for her baby shower tomorrow. There’ll be no pictures of that either, not because of my forgetfulness this time, but rather I doubt the women will want me to hang about. Not sure what I will do during that time, but there is a Willams-Sonoma store not far away. I can enjoy an unescorted trip to a cooking supply store – there is danger in the air, basically from Mrs. Phos choking the living shit out of me later for spending all the money I will undoubtedly spend.
Meanwhile we have custody of our daughter-in-law. I made up some lumpia, braised a couple sirloins and we spent he evening catching up. Huskies were happy to have her here as well, especially when she tossed them some of her jalapeño popcorn later in the evening. I wish there was time to have the whole family together, I love having Tiny House really come alive with the kids. Odd how I spent most of their teen years hoping the kids would finally leave the nest and now that they are gone I miss them so very much. Must be another one of nature’s tricks on ol’ Phos, sort of like the hair/no hair thing.
Hope your New Year is off to a good as start as mine. All the talk of doom and gloom, each new year actually holds promise, much as the lottery ticket I bought – I might be a millionaire, at least until I check the ticket, so this year may hold hidden bounty and happiness. Fortunately we have more control over the upcoming year then we do over the lottery so it will be up to us as to how it goes. Meanwhile, I will just enjoy your company on the trip. Happy New Years all!
