Friday was a treat – the weather was perfect for a walk in the park with Deuce. We met a lovely pair of pugs – Hector a 4 month old fawn pug, and Pearly, a rotund but very friendly 4 year old black pug. Deuce seemed a bit alarmed by them – i wonder if he thinks he’s a cat or some other species? Still, he wanted to follow them home.
Drove up to Stokie and had lunch at the Spence sitting in the sun. Was nice to catch up with Nora, soaking in the rays. Nora had a rose for Sophia, and when Sophia saw it she cried “What a beautiful flower!” When I told her it was for her, she jumped up and down and ran to the rose. So sweet. She chose a card for her friend’s birthday, which had, as Sophia called her, Version Mary on the front of it.
The afternoon morphed into movie night, and B ordered in pizza and we prepare to watch the ‘Two Towers’, er except that DVD 2 in the Lord of the Rings DVD box was the special effects DVD. Oops. No matter, Paul our shining knight came to the rescue and swept off to secure the Two Towers DVD from the local video shop. Pretty soon we were ensconced with pizza, meatballs, wine and movie. The little ones moved around a bit – at one point I had Sophia sat in my lap, and Deuce next to her, with Sophia lazily stroking deuce’s back. So cute. B kept calling Sam ‘Samgee’ or ‘Samwan Camgee’ which made giggle. I promised to do some baking for Sophia’s school – they are fundraising for Haiti next Friday. When I told Sophia I’d save some of the white chocolate chip cookies for her, she grinned and her eyes got all glassy. I think she really really really likes white chocolate!
