A while back I started messing with Milly when she was holding a blanket. I’d tug at it and say, “Gimme that blanket!” In the ensuing weeks Milly started handing people the end of her blanket and telling them, “Gimme that blanket!” to try to get them to pull on it, a sort of tug of war which she always wins and thinks is hilarious. She’s now moving on to other objects: “Gimme that _____!”
We slept in a little and went to the 11:00 service at Port City Community Church this morning and sat with Mike and Sarah Nowak. It felt really good to see and catch up with them. The message today was the beginning of a series about marriage. Mike really brought it.
Milly napped when we got home. I was feeling extremely lazy and hardly moved from the couch for a while. Amanda and I watched Law & Order: SVU and the last three episode of the season of Falling Skies, which we didn’t realize we’d missed. I thought it picked up towards the end there.
We went for a out in the neighborhood after Milly got up and ended up in the grassy area in the cul-de-sac. I was thinking today that we should see about getting a playset and some benches set up there. Milly picked and blew on dandelions. She’s not the best at that, but she had fun. I think it might have been the first time she’s seen that you can blow dandelions. We left there eventually and walked a good way up the other side of the neighborhood until Milly wanted to go back home.
I had loaded potato soup, leftovers from Amanda’s lunch at Longhorn in Jacksonville on Friday. It was extremely good. I ate it while we all watched Despicable Me, which was cute. After Milly went to bed Amanda and I wasted a little time until the season premiere of The Walking Dead came on. I really liked it, but there were way too many commercials. I mean, it seemed like we were interrupted after every single scene. On top of that, I think every other commercial had zombies in it. I’m like, “Yes, I know, I’m watching a zombie show. Thanks for reminding me of what I’m missing. Now stop interrupting it and let m get back to it!”
