randoms from today

*I went to the eye doctor this morning.  He put a dye in my eyes to 'verify the new contacts were sitting properly on my eye', and then he put drops in my eyes to 'check for allergies'.  He failed to tell me my eyes would go numb after the allergy thank you doctor!  Nor did he give me a heads up that the yellow dye might come out of my nose whilst I am bebopping around town with Mr. Henry. 
No thank you indeed!

*The fire alarm went of while Henry and I were at the mall today....and people just kept on shopping.  Apparently holiday shopping trumps smoke inhalation/burning alive.

* I would love to have this little diddy around my shoulders this holiday season, but at $118 it is a little too salty for this gal.

Dear Anthro,

Something about the winter,
the cold, the short days,
the blue and purple colors of the evenings.....
I don't know, but something always makes me nostalgic.
It makes me sappy about the year that has past.
About my family and friends.
Oh how I get weepy when I think of them in my winter wonderland.
Every year, without fail, I am drawn to read His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman.
The books give me hope.
Hope for life
and love and all things good.
I'm looking forward to losing myself in the pages again this year.

A Cup Of Jo asked a funny question a few months back that got me thinking.
My answer:
Um.....YES! Of course!
I hadn't really thought about it until I read her post. I just figured everyone kissed their babies on the mouth....I was wrong.
Stone doesn't. He said he'll 'stick with the ol cheek or forehead smooch'.
Henry has a juicy bottom lip that makes my heart ache it is so cute! I can't kiss him enough!
PS: Henry has his dad's wonder I think they are so sweet!

comfy cozy

I've got beef & noodles cooking in the kitchen
and my sweet strawberry haired boy sleeping in my arms.
Our bungalow is comfy cozy at the moment....
and I love it.
