This is Speedy...
...he is our house guest for the weekend. My sister dropped him off this morning and all was well until Jayden came home from school. Since then Speedy has jumped up on Jayden numerous times and he has tried to steal his food. I put Speedy out in the foyer and closed the door until Jayden could finish eating his after school snack, and when I went to retrieve Speedy I found that he left me a quite a few gifts! He not only knocked down all the pillows to the floor that were on the bench in the foyer but he also left me a very moist gift and a not-so-moist gift! My sister warned me that he will do that when he gets mad. I guess he was mad!
Oh, for goodness sakes!
Well, I got out the gloves, the Lysol, the carpet cleaner, the anti-bacterial spray, and I went to work scrubbing the offended spot. And Speedy acts like the insulted one!
Before this he wouldn't leave my side, now he's just laying on his pillow in the kitchen.
Jayden tried to coax him out of his bad mood, but Speedy would have none of it! (In fact, I think he's growling! He looks like he's growling, doesn't he? Or sneering at us anyway!)
And now I have lots of scented candles burning trying to rid the house of Speedy's lingering gifts!
On a happier note, here's Jayden heading out to school this morning dressed for his Halloween party there. He's supposed to be Captain Jack Sparrow, the jacket finally fits (way too big in previous years), but the pants wouldn't fit over his gym uniform, and his head is now way too big for the hat (with attached dreadlocks) that came with the costume. Even the hat he has on I had to cut the back of it to get it to fit!
(Finally a day where he is happy about leaving the house for school!)
And, a BIG THANK YOU to Jill @ Grandma Honey for posting about her breakfast (Oat Bran with Almond Butter or Peanut Butter) the other day! I tried it this morning, and, Jill, I loved it!
You can read about it at Our Favorite Breakfast on her blog. It's now my favorite breakfast too! Jill's post is complete with pictures, I forgot to take one.
