I had to send Logan home earlier than I had planned though, because, as I was finishing my books, I thought I was going to run out of ribbon. This meant that I would have had to get the baby up from his nap, as well as get the other two ready, and haul them to the store. Now, if ever there was a miracle in my life, it was that my ribbon held out through all 40 books. I had to change how I tied the ribbon, and ended up using scraps and hiding them by gluing the bow over them, but you'd never know and things worked out nicely.
With the three boys all in quiet time/naps, I quickly made a made dash to get enough Pita bread and hummus made to feed everyone who'd be there. Not much to say there..... I cooked, I made a mess...it all turned out great, and was done on time. By this point however, all of my work from Monday were for naught, as I realised my living room was covered in the aftermath of three preschoolers, and a HUGE craft project; my kitchen.... cooking dishes and such stalked everywhere and the whole room looked like a flour can exploded.
I couldn't help but laugh. Hubby pointed out that night that it takes forever to clean up the mess and so very little time to make it. Oh well, that's life for ya! I will admit though, it only got completely cleaned up (the kitchen that is) on Thursday.
Then it was off to my enrichment meeting, that went very well, and was talking about preparedness. Finally, we stopped by the Apple Ladies house on the way home to drop off her dishes from that night. Sure enough; she has apples for us and a lovely little gathering of flowers. The latter I am still enjoying greatly on my table.
The boys were more than tickled to see the Apple Lady, and it made getting them off to bed after getting home, all the much easier.
And that, my friends, is that!
