I played kickball last night with a bunch of high-spirited-six-year-old boys.
I managed to stub my toe (I was wearing flip flops), I slid (accidentally) into second base, had two balls bounce off my head, tripped on a sprinkler head, I was spanked at third base by one of the kids (I’m still not sure why), and was tackled at home plate to prevent me from scoring a point.
During my next ups I kicked a home run. I figured it was way too dangerous to be on base again.
My six-year-old now thinks I’m the greatest athlete to walk this earth.
Little does he know I needed a hot bath, two Tylenol and a heating pad to get over the pain.
I don’t think he noticed my limp.
Well of course I have a Halloween village! I know you were all wondering if I did. These particular pieces, made by TAG, are part of my cutesy-ceramic Halloween village. All are adorned with smiling pumpkins, happy trick-or-treaters and silly witches. These also light up. Can you see the illuminating glow coming from the inside?
These usually find a home on a mantle or a table, but it changes from year to year. Each one of these pieces are about a foot tall. I love the little hanging bats, spiders and candy corns that adorn each piece. I hope you like them. You know I do.
