One Clicker Shoe

Last night I took Mira to Aldi with me while the older girls were enjoying dance class. When she found out about her opportunity to go out in public, she ran upstairs to get dressed and came down a few minutes later wearing the one "clicker shoe" she could find. Its mate has been lost for weeks now, but that doesn't stop her from wearing at least one...on the wrong foot. Along with her uniform of princess pajamas and accessories, she was quite the vision to behold. 

She patiently sat in the cart for most of the store, but when she eventually wanted to walk next to me, she entertained the whole store with her clicking of one shoe as she walked down the aisle. 

Yesterday started off with me finding the sweetest lost dog in our driveway at 4:30 am. Due to the power of social media, we found his owner in a matter of hours. Then, I dropped Nonnie at the hospital to have surgery for some stomach issues that have been bothering her for years. With the COVID restrictions, I wasn't allowed inside, and it felt so strange to just sit in my car as she walked into the hospital by herself. 

The surgery went well. The doctors and nurses called me throughout the day with updates and we FaceTimed her last night. Grandma Frankie came over to stay with the girls. We are so thankful for her!

The rest of the week was full of work, school, laundry and small group/dance/basketball.  I honestly feel like I have blinked and Friday is here again. Speaking of blinking, I swear that Cora grew up in the hour she was at dance class. When I dropped her off I could still see a hint of toddler lingering and when I picked up her up, her long and lean body walked out the door with her top knot and smile and she looked like a full on big kid. 

And while we are digressing - a conversation I overheard while I was working in my office upstairs:
Cora: Daddy, what is a conscience?
Dan: It is something in your head that tells you the difference between right and wrong.
Cora: Don't you mean the difference between right and left? 

A few links to share: 

I started a new book - The Stationary Shop. Good so far!

Need an easy weekend recipe? This skillet sausage and brussels sprouts and pickled red onion is delicious paired with air fryer potatoes and makes a great breakfast the next day. 

Very interesting article: The Economics of Leaning In and Out

My sister gave me these joggers for my birthday and I love them. The material is similar to leggings, but without all of the constriction. Ha!

Have a great weekend!
