It was so hot yesterday (Thursday) that I thought it was Friday (today) and somehow posted my weekly Five Friday Happy Bringers (all about air conditioning). I’m so beet-red embarrassed from that foolishness (well, and from the heat) that I’m trying it all again this morning. So now that it’s really Friday (I think), here are five things I’m tickled pink about.
1. From yesterday: air conditioning, air conditioning, air conditioning, air conditioning, air conditioning.
2. Learning from grandsons Daniel (5) and Gabriel (3) what BeyBlades are, and becoming pretty darn minimally adequate at spinning them. Here’s Daniel with his dad Orte spinning the BeyBlades:
I played with D yesterday afternoon. Daniel began spinning his top (can I call it that?), screaming phrases such as, “Abu, Beware! Pegasus, blast him off the floor! Gan Gan Galaxy alert! Gingka! Masune!”
I stared dumb(founded) for a few minutes until he yelled, “Abu! Blast it off now! Last one shaking!” Then I somehow get mine (my “what”? I’m not even sure what it is) spinning. But little Gabriel began squealing with laughter as my top slammed into the hall wall, and both D and G taunted me with, “Shaking! Shaking!” Huh? What? How did I miss all this? I resisted the urge to spank them both.
3. This little chest.
4. Playful Squirrels.
5. As Paula Deen says, “Waking up on the right side of the dirt!”
Somehow have a cool last weekend in July 2012!
