Finger Fun

I found a tiny box over the weekend, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it: do the “finger in a box”.

Ha! It’s a trick. You cut a hole in the bottom of the box, then stick your finger through. You have to kind of hide your “missing” finger with the box top, but if you practice, you can get it down pretty good.

I took it to church yesterday morning and showed a few people. It was a hit! Andrea even remembered doing the same thing when she was a kid.

    Ha! Bringing back the jokes from our childhood – most excellent! I hope you freak out some kids today. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Totally unrelated comments: local updates from around your old digs:

    *Red light cameras going up around the city; nearest one to your old house would be at Perring & Woodbourne, I think, with another at Harford and Echodale. So, if you ever return to visit, watch yourself…

    *A former student of yours got married this past weekend – any ideas who? (Thurman and I said to one another, “Who’da’ thought?”, if that’s any hint…)

    *The Ravens are kicking it this season (both literally and figuratively) – not that either of us care a fig for football, but “yea!”.

    *Chesapeake Bay Bridge under renovation – 5 mile backups over the holiday weekend as a result of lane closures. Can’t wait ’till summer…

    Updates to follow when needed. Happy Advent, old friend!

Shopping Local

I had a sleep-in morning yesterday. It was delightful! After a slow and easy wake-up, I decided I’d go to Kahului for breakfast at IHOP. Mmm…

After breakfast, I drove around a little and window-shopped. My last stop was at the mall. The library has a used bookstore there, and I spent a while looking around. It was not just window shopping.

I was excited to find a fantasy series that I have always wanted to read, but never got around to. The whole set was $5. Amazing!

They also had DVDs for $1 and CDs for 50ยข. I have a CD player in my classroom, so I got a few things I’ll enjoy playing in the mornings before school. I also go a DVD for my classroom set of kid-friendly movies.

Looks like I’ll have to start reading more seriously.

Black Friday Report

I exercise on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Even though yesterday was a day off of school, I still met with my trainer. I’m just very all-or-nothing, so I’m afraid to skip, even on a vacation day.

Since I was already up, I decided to drive to Kahului and check out the Black Friday deals. I went to Walmart first. They had many displays in the aisles. I was just looking, until I saw a bunch of really cheap DVDs. I decided to look through them.

I ended up getting most of the recent DC comics movies. It seems like I should own them. They were only $3 each!

After Walmart, I went to Target, Lowe’s, and Home Depot. Home Depot was by far the most crowded. It was there that I got my “Black Friday is a party” feeling. So fun!

After that, I went to school to finish fixing the handbells. The rest of the day was mostly just relaxing. aahhhh… vacation…

Lemon and Rosemary

I had Thanksgiving dinner with David and Barbara yesterday. They said I could bring a vegetable and dessert.

I got green beans for the vegetable. I wondered if I could make green beans with rosemary, since I have a rather nice rosemary plant on my lanai. I found a recipe! Actually, there are a lot of them. I used THIS one, but with almonds instead of pecans. It was good.

For dessert, I made my mom’s Lemon Pudding. It is so good! Yum! I also bought a pecan pie, just in case. We ate both of course. And there is Lemon Pudding left over. Yay!

I got the lemons at church last Sunday. They’re from someone’s yard!

Bell Repair

Happy Thanksgiving! Yay!

Yesterday I tried to work on the handbells. All the parts that are designed to wear out have worn out. The replacement parts were surprisingly inexpensive. They were, however, time intensive to get put in place.

I watched Thor Ragnarok while I worked.

The old springs were all so brittle!

I got through two thirds of them before I just had to stop. Whew! It was tedious! I’m going to David and Barbara’s for Thanksgiving, but not until the afternoon. Maybe I’ll have some time this morning.
