doing chores. . .or something

video
Click on the arrow to start the clip. . .
Early on Christmas morning. . .we saw that the road was again hard packed snow.
This as you know. . .was exactly what I had hoped for.
I opened up the blinds completely so that I could have a perfect view while cooking.
After a cup of coffee
I said. . . "well, I guess I should start to get the Turkey ready for the oven"
He said. . . "and I better go start the chores"
I said. . . "see you at lunch"
He said. . "I might be a bit late. . . .I'll plow the driveway open after chores"
Around noontime. . . I'm busy in my kitchen .. . and I hear him .. .but it isn't the tractor I'm hearing.
The part that made me smile. . .
was his head turning to make sure I was watching. . .
Married nearly 31 years. . . and he's still looking to see if I'm watching. . .
I'm happy about that. . .
It's cousin camp .. . gotta run.
All for now. . .with love,

  2. They never grow up, do they? Those little boys who used to call out, "Watch me, Mom!" still want to be watched!

  9. Or something! And should there be an injury on the job...it's all covered by WBC, right? I'm just wondering about the helmet...is it CSA approved?

    A boy's just gotta have fun! Glad you were watching.
