Gratuitous Domestic Posting (TM)

Well, even though Fairfax County schools are closed today, the Llama-ettes only scored a two hour delay from St. Marie of the Blessed Educational Method.

Yesterday afternoon turned out to be nearly perfect in an odd way. As I said, I spent about three hours shoveling the drive and sidewalks while the gels trouped down the street to play with their friends. Hard work, but the exercise felt very good.

After I got cleaned up, the Missus and I were able to have brunch together in peace and quiet. What a treat to talk about grown up things! And at something approaching a conversational volume as well!

Feeling motivated, I then sat down and did the taxes, in no way encumbered by the fact that the power went out and my fortress of solitude is a bit on the dim side.

Later in the afternoon, as I had promised myself, I lit a fire and sat down with a well-earned glass of the right stuff. By then, the Llama-ettes had returned. As I sat there, the four year old marched into the library, announced, "My bottom needs warming!" and promptly dropped trou standing on the hearth.

Friends, let me tell you that single malt tastes better on the palate than in the sinuses.

I hate to say it because it might mean she's peaking too soon, but I do believe the littlest llama-ette is coming into the height of her ruckus raising powers.

Good on her! ;)

Almost as good as my 7 year old that changes into his soccer uniform on the staircase (it is a big open staircase in the middle of the main living area). He, of course, has to be reminded to keep on the underwear.
