A New Day

The Ninja liked his silly card from me. He also got a big jar of veggie bacon bits and a gift certificate for Mark’s Work Wearhouse from his sister and her SO, a pomelo fruit and a promise of a painting of his late lamented bearded dragon lizard from his MIL, and a really funny card from his Nana (T-Man’s mom). We discussed what he would like me to make him and he actually does want socks. But socks with a separate big toe like the ones he wears with his ninja gi. And they don’t necessarily have to be black but not too flashy. Good thing I asked, eh? I would’ve never thought of that. Notice what odd presents we give as a family?

I was playing on the computer with this picture of my granddaughter, Sprout. I think it’s really cool, don’t you? I might even print out a big one to frame. Interestingly, there was some rumour that perhaps it might be time to consider a sibling for the Sprout. I’m waiting as patiently as I can! And I didn’t even hint — because I promised I would keep my mouth shut and not bug my kids to reproduce. But I’m excited! I can’t help it. Grandchildren are even better than having your own kids. You get to play and then give them back.
