Peekaboo. I see you.

When I got my new iPad in December, I got booted off our security system. I can’t actually do anything useful with the system, like open a door, but I can see who is going in and out of the building. In fact, the only thing I use it for is checking our front entrance at the end of the day to see which parents have come in to pick up their child. (I mark everyone off a list so we can consolidate rooms when the numbers are low enough.)

The security guy came to work on our stuff, and now I have access to cameras at the church! Again, I can’t do anything with them…. except see Sam spreading ice melt in the morning. Solidarity, Sam. I spread some sand this morning, too.

    Now you will be all knowing. Except that’s not Sam.

    Have you caught anyone picking their nose? That’s always my concern when I notice I’m in the vicinity of a security camera.

      No nose-picking yet, but I’ll have to look for that. You can watch the footage in reverse -- going back several days. 😉

      Deborah, how is that not Sam? Does he have a doppelganger? I knew it, he’s not really going to work….

    It’s Mr. Eck. Sam was up in devotions at that time yesterday morning. But I can see how you would be confused because he is a man.

    Yes. I was mentally sending commands to have the salt put down.

Someone’s trying to send me a message.

Sooo…. whoever broke the glass jar of cat food? They are also messing around in my closet. My mirror was down. Not broken, but definitely angled so I would poke myself on the pointy it. Grrrrrrrr. Pretty sure it’s Wally.

The last of the sunshine

I forgot to write a post last night. (Insert standard information about being busy and tired. You’ve heard it before.) The weather here has been so lovely. It’s really been like spring. On the playground, we’ve watched flocks of geese return, played with our coats off, and discovered the baby plants that are poking out […]

A party for Christian Utpatel

We met Christian in 1990. He drove the bus for us on choir tour in Germany. After that he helped put together some of the next few Germany tours. He was in the States on a business trip and spent the day with Dad Martens. Dad threw a party for him and a few of […]

Those Dang Cats

IMG_5016

This the view of Emme as I walk downstairs in the morning: lit in a sinister manner, judging me. She wasn’t the worst cat today, though. When I came home tonight, Lloyd mumbled from his nap, “There was a crash in the basement. I shut the door.” The crash was a giant glass jar of […]

The best things at the auction.

Googly eyes make everything better. Lloyd won these beauties for a mere $4. He’s going to hang them in the MAC lab at school and call them his Earthquake Detection System. The eagles are nice, but the raccoon looks so serious. Googly eyes would spruce these two up, huh?
