Mr. Jenkins has a girl friend

There's a special little (and I do mean little) lady in Mr. Jenkin's world.

Let me introduce you to Tinkerbell...

He is quite smitten.

I am not sure I approve. I mean, seriously... girl has some attitude going on with that hand on her hip dontcha think?

And where is her skirt!?!?

He took her "out" ... as in outside in the back yard yesterday and played with her for quite some time.

 He had her sliding down my tomato cages and zipping down the pole bean trellis.

And here is is in sheer delight over his girl.

Ahhh. Young love.

He had her with him again today and I heard him rummaging around in a drawer, undoubtedly looking for scissors or a permanent marker to "beautify" something. Anyway, I looked over just in time to see him close the drawer on poor Tink.

Ever the gentleman, he quickly patted her head and said, "I sorry Tinky-bell"

What a guy.

Soul Man's

I mentioned previously that I have a job in the "real world" in which I plan a conference.

This conference just occurred last week - thus my excuse for the lack of posting in recent months.

Anyhow, I have some recent kid shenanigans to share now that life has slowed down a bit, but I'll just ease myself back into the blogisphere with this little pic I observed while in Texas at the conference last week.

The restaurant is "Soul Man's BBQ" and the changeable letter sign reads:


Once again...
I love Texas.

It's a bit of a mouth full, but I have started to incorporate this phrase into my daily speech... you know, kinda like an excited utterance:

What's that? You can work me in for a haircut today! Well, Jesus is Lord! Fried Pies 49 cents!

Jesus is Lord! Fried Pies 49 cents! Chilli is finally walking!

Say what!? We didn't have to pay as much as we thought in taxes!? Thank you 3rd child exemption - Jesus is Lord! Fried Pies... that's right... 49 cents. 

Okay... I am actually feeling a bit irreverent and fairly confident that I am the only one who sees the humor in this.

Like I said. I need to ease myself back into Blog Land.

I know you've missed me.

I've missed you too.

I don't know if I have ever mentioned on this blog o' mine that I actually have another job besides keeping my children alive.

You know... a job that I actually get paid for, but that is far less rewarding!

Consequently, I have seasons such as this where the blogging goes to the back burner, along with a number of other important things in life... ie. sleeping, bathing, tooth brushing, etc...

Anywho. Sassy said something today that I considered "blog worthy" and I thought I'd pop on quickly to post.

She apparently had some trouble going to sleep last night.

Me: I'm so sorry you had a rough time falling asleep. Do you know why?
Sassy: Yes. I certainly do. I think it was because I am a little bit nocturnal.

Thank you PBS kids. I am pretty sure you get the credit for that vocab word.

Well, that's all I have time for. I have an evening full of nocturnal activities of my own... editing content, emailing workshop presenters, confirming exhibitor details, etc...
