Crickets, Cornstarch, Clothespins, and Corelle

Aren't you glad God give us laughter!?! Last night and today have contained wonderful examples of God's gift of laughter to us! It's a little late, but here's a few abbreviated notes...

Crickets... they were all over the parking lost at Sonic last night and kept sproing-ing into the van and even jumping up on the van windshield! We decided that they thought the windshield wipers were a carnival ride, so we obliged them by using the wipers to propel them into an adventure! Greg's description is here. (I love you too!)

Cornstarch... I decided to make pancakes for Greg this morning (since I like making them and they're one of his favorite foods). He arrived at the house with the milk and we finished mixing up the pancakes-from-scratch and started pouring them onto the griddle. But they weren't cooking right... they wouldn't bubble! I finally wondered if the baking powder was bad and upon reaching for my container of "baking powder," I realized I had put in cornstarch instead! No wonder the pancakes were turning out like frisbees! We had a good laugh (all day today)!

Corelle... Not really funny stuff here - just fun stuff! We stopped by the Corellle store today and picked out the plate design we wanted! Mother - it looks like I get to have vines in my kitchen after all! :)

and last, but not least, Clothespins... the "busy-ness" of registry shopping today was delightfully interrupted by random clothespins being sneakily attached to the back of my shirt. I would eventually find the said clothespin and discover a message written on it... "You're so lovely, honey! " Each clothespin brought a new message from my wonderful love!

Yay for laughter, love and lots of grace!
