It poured almost all day long yesterday.
That was totally fine with me because I've been so busy with work that I've hardly even had time to look outside the window, let alone venture out into it.
I slept in until 7:30, woke up, made some 'coffee' (tea) and got to work.
Then I crawled into bed with Yans around 10:00 and snuggled with her for a bit.
Then I got back to work.
I walked into Cole's room around 11:30 and told him there was no way I was going to let him stay in bed another minute. (No Courtney Lee - she was at her mom's.)
And then I ran to the store and came back with chocolate chip cookies that were so big, Annie's face lit up.
And then I called Josh Downs to see it he'd make his 'magic greenbeans' to go along with the London Broil he started marinating the night before. (Josh says that he's never going to tell me which spices he uses in his 'magic greenbeans because it's his insurance that I'll never leave him.)
And then I got back to work.
And then I hollered louder than I should have at Yans because she hadn't finished the laundry that was supposed to be finished up two days prior.
And then we made up, but I had her do the dishes as a consequence.
And then Cole's best friend, Wyatt came over to stay the night.
And then Josh Downs got home.
And then he took the boys to the range to shoot guns, while Yans and I went to the grocery store and picked up a movie.
And then while I was outside talking to Josh as he lit up the BBQ, I heard Annie hollering for me, insisting that I come with her immediately to see what she had found...
Dozens and dozens and dozens of snails.
And she was convinced that she was rescuing every last one of them.
She named that one, Cutie.
When I came back to swap out lenses, I found that little guy had slimed up my 85mm.
She had over 40 by the time I quit shooting.
And then our neighbor, Lexie came over to assist in the rescue while the rest of us ate dinner (Our rescue-workers weren't interested in dinner.) and ended up with 92 snails per Annie's last count.
That girl is so lovely to me.
