Feintsje has had so much fun making up stories. Hopefully a pumpkin, Christmas tree, bowl of popcorn, sailboat, and a rake will help. And this weekend I used my 40% off Michael's coupon to buy another bag of rocks.

I had never heard of it before. Apparently it is on Nick Jr. around dinner time.
THGGM and I have found it on YouTube and have spent a few evenings being entertained by Peppa and her lovely family, Daddy, Mummy, and little brother George.
It has helped us to better understand our grand daugther and her charming command of the queen's English.
And why she is exceedingly polite, saying "yes, please" while everyone else is saying gimme.
Once I asked her how her diaper was, her response: "not so very well".
It also added to her joy of jumping in "muddy puddles", something that Peppa enjoys doing.
So you can imagine my thrill at finding a pig's nose for our Peppa to wear. She was delighted with it!
Oh, and a REAL antique store, Depot Antiques in Spring Lake.
Have you been there?
Most places that call themselves antique malls have a mix of junk (no problem here, as I do like junk!), thrift (I like that too!) and vintage-y stuff which now resembles what I received as wedding gifts many long years ago. But really, there aren't that many antiques around.
THGGM would like that. As he shops, he fills two imaginary homes, one a mansion in East Grand Rapids, and the other a large beach house on Lake Michigan in Holland.
It is his equivalent to fantasy football, I guess.
Anyway, it does make it more fun to shop!
It's also fun to yell across a store that you've found something for the lake house, at least it probably would be, if we wanted to be all pretentious about our imaginary houses. So far, it hasn't gotten THAT bad.
