Just a regular Wednesday Morning

A snapshot of my morning on this cold March day…

We’re starting to blend in with the “locals” with our rotating collection of cars that need to be fixed and our “parts car” that always sits in residence on our driveway.   Here we are taking FULL advantage of the ONLY rule in our town – the one where you are only allowed 2 dead cars on your property at once.  Technically the white one isn’t dead, just in the middle of getting a new drive shaft.

From these pictures I can see why Garrison’s grandmother says we drive “jaloppies”  🙂 


Now this photo may look like an ordinary hole-y piece of wood – but last night it started out as a regular block of wood and at 4:30 Garrison woke up with a “something’s not quite right” feeling (I continued sleeping with the “I’m so exhausted” feeling) and he went around the house investigating.  When he went downstairs he saw smoke in the hallway and couldn’t find the source until he opened the garage door.  A timed switch had turned on and his work lamp was plugged into that outlet turning that hot light on – a light that was resting comfortably on this block of wood.  It was burnt completely through and there was smoke everywhere.  I’ll be working on airing out the house – and I’ll also be working on my ninja sleeping skills so that I can wake up at the slightest movement/smell of smoke and be ready to jump into action. 


Then we have our darling little snot-nosed one minding her own business, eating a piece of bread for breakfast….

and ending up with a little bread Hitler mustache….


We have a big day ahead of us today with lots of busy-ness so I better get at it instead of sitting here just thinking about it….Happy Wednesday!

    Sorry, Garrison has always been one to have a car “under construction”. Scary about the lamp and the smoke! I’m so glad that Garrison woke up and discovered the problem. Claudia is SO cute! I can’t wait to see you all again soon. Love you bunches!

    Loving the “objects glued under nose with snot” look. We have that over here a lot too! 🙂

    That’s so crazy that Garrison woke up just in time!! That must have been a holy nudge – or shove!
