Miscellaneous

I have a lot of little things to say that don't warrant their own post so I'm going to do a miscellaneous post.

*Chloe Jo looked so sweet for Bible class Wednesday evening. She knew she looked sweet so she posed pretty for me to take a picture.
*It has been chilly or rainy for about a week here so we haven't been able to play in the pool. Yesterday was gorgeous so we cleaned the pool out, added some air and refilled it for Chloe Jo to play. We bought her a new swimsuit for the summer on Monday and she's been wanting to wear it every day! She put it on and it is way big on her! I'm going to take the bottoms up so she can wear it now and I'll just take them out if she gets any bigger around (that is doubtful). She played for about 10 minutes and then was done. Silly thing.
*I made a batch of Slurp yesterday. I love this jam and we have been out for several weeks! Chloe Jo loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with this slurp so I know she'll be happy when we get into it tomorrow (it has to sit for 24 hours to set). For some reason the fruit all drifted to the top. I don't know what is up with that. I hope it sets right.
*Lucky Charms were Buy 1 Get 1 free this week at our grocery store so I picked up 2 boxes. I don't buy them very often because they are my favorite and I eat them way too much when they are in the house. I've been doing really good with controlling myself this time, though. I made Chloe Jo a bowl one morning and she wouldn't touch it! She opted for plain cheerios. HA!
*I finished reading The Great Gatsby yesterday. I read it in two days and only during nap time and after Chloe Jo went to bed. It's a very short, easy read. I had read it in high school, but had completely forgotten the story and was surprised in the end! Russ found the movie with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow online and we are going to watch it tonight.

*It is rainy today so it is going to be an inside day. I have read a ton of books to Chloe Jo already and my voice is getting scratchy.

*I hope you all have a great weekend!

oh wow! Lucky Charms! I used to love those when I was a kid but you can't get them now in UK. If I ever come to the US I'll have to stock up!
