What are your plans for Monday? Mine? Well, I WAS going to visit Momma and the sibs with Ol’ Benny Boo in tow, hitting up some fresh produce and hauling back the six chicken broilers that I ordered.
Alas, our salon scheduled a Monday morning meeting, putting a snag in my plans. As I mentioned the other day, my babe takes two naps a day (usually), the first one around 9ish and the second one, 3ish. Being that it takes an hour and a half to get to Momma’s house, my travels are always coordinated with the nap times so that I can enjoy a bit of peace and quiet on the road.
So since Monday got shot, I called Momma up yesterday morn and sorta sprung myself on her. She was happy to accommodate a spur of the moment visit. In addition to brightening her day, Bennett and I also spread cheer unto Aunt Manny (A.K.A. Manny-saurus Rex) and honorary Aunt Rachael.
But all that ooey-gooey baby goodness is old news, right?
So what’s the new news?
Momma and I drove to Mowery’s Orchard and marveled at all of the pumpkins and gourds on display. There was a vast array of colors and sizes. Curious about a particular selection of jumbo gourds that were marked at $3.50, I asked the staff if these gourds were just decorative or if any were actually edible. They kindly turned my attention to the cushaw squash, a sort of cousin to pumpkin, that was hidden amongst the gourds.
Well, guys, I think you know what my weekend is going to look like, huh? I’ve got a date with Mr. Cushaw Squash. Let’s hope he likes me. First, I must research him to death. Then I’ll pounce.
