Random Tid Bits

1. Isaak has been talking about his friend David, since last year. He’s the one that stood up for him with the bullies in gym. We’ve had him over a few times. 

His parents work a few retail jobs, so I told Isaak we can do all the driving. I know what it’s like working retail. Schedules are all over the place! 

The boy couldn’t be a better friend. The song They Might Be Giants songs over the phone. He has empathy for others, is always thankful, and a good, not picky eater. I don’t know why, but picky eaters annoy me. 

I just hope he doesn’t move. They are from California, and move quite often. I would blame them for moving, but please stay for Isaak. 😂 

2. My niece Margaret turned 1. We got together outside + still wore masks. Kind of extreme when all the adults are vaccinated, but with 2 kids in the family that have trisomy 18, one has to be oh so careful. Good news: Those old enough yo get the vaccine, that have trisomy 18 have done well with it. If the open it up to kids under 12, Emerson and Margaret will get theirs. 

3. We keep trying to convince Mica to ask a friend to come over. He’s only friends with some girls, and thinks it will be odd to ask them over. I get it. 

4. Mica’s out driving with Travis. Somehow I’m not the one to teach him. I guess I’m ok with that. Less stress. 

5. We’ve been having bean popping nights. Pop them out of their pods that is. Travis grew a butt load of beans. I hardly use them, but he’ll make soups, refried beans and more. 

I thought Warhol matched the beans to a T. No worries, the beans get washed. 

He also grew green corn. He’ll make tortilla shells out of them. Nom nom! What did you grow? Anything?

I hope Isaak's friend never moves, but at least there's social media to stay in touch if it ever happens.

Picky eaters dress me tf out. I loved Mariah's first boyfriend, but I never wanted him to stay for dinner because of his pickiness. Her current boyfriend is the same damn way. No cheese, no chocolate, no tomatoes, no blueberries... he even sent me a list of things he doesn't like. I thought the list of things he does like would be shorter.

Happy birthday Margaret! She's is cuter than ever! Hope she had a great birthday!

Hurray for all of the things Travis will make with what was in your garden. I only did tomatoes and cucumbers this year. I didn't have much time to plant anything else.

I am glad that he has such a great friend!
Broxton has been working on a garden. We have cherry tomatoes, HOT banana peppers and corn has been trying to grow (but not doing well) it is so freaking HOT down here, we are struggling, but we do get a couple plants, so that is great.

Happy Birthday to her! What a cute.

I wear my mask outside and people laugh at me, but I see people dropping left and right with Covid at my job so I'm trying to be as careful as I can be.

I confess I'm a picky eater, but mostly because I don't like meat. It drives people crazy but you like what you like (and don't like what you don't). I've grown used to people (even in restaurants) getting annoyed with my order. ;)

Warhol is a perfect match. That's cute. :)
