Some weeks it is very easy for me to come up with 5 Random thoughts. I do try to pick out things relevant to the past week but this week I decided to let some of my thoughts be dictated by some photos from earlier this year.
1. I think we’re getting used to the stranger who seemed to replace my husband. We’ve adjusted enough to seeing him with contacts that we were all a little thrown when he chose to wear glasses for an evening.
2. We missed all the pre-sanctified liturgies from this week. At least we made both of them last week. I love Lent. (You’ll want to come back tomorrow to read about how Lent is my favorite liturgical season!)
3. Lacey the cat is undaunted by a mere computer in the lap of her favorite human. Lacey is Turtlegirl’s constant school companion. Though I do not have any pictures to share, Lacey’s brother, George the Cat, loves read aloud time. If you are reading aloud he will come out and make himself comfortable, usually on the lap of the reader, and listen along.
4. A while back Boobear and I were sorting “pretend kitchen” toys. We were doing some deep cleaning and organizing so that Supergirl could better enjoy her kitchen. Boobear got a little silly with some plastic fruit. Here are her “genetically modified” fruits:
5. If you would have said to me “Tess, you will become a Whovian,” I would have reminded you that I tried to like Doctor Who. I would have shared with you how my friend Dawn made me watch it back in the 80s and that I just “didn’t get it.” I would let you know that I tried to watch the reboot but couldn’t get past the zombies in Victorian England in Episode 3 of the 9th doctor. Perhaps you would have smiled knowingly. Maybe you would have nodded your head. Well life is full of change. A person’s taste can change. I was not a science fiction/fantasy type of person 21 years ago when I met my husband. It’s not that I didn’t like Star Wars (I saw the movies that came out when I was growing up!) and I did like Next Generation. I’m still not a fan of the Original Star Trek but I have developed, no cultivated a liking for science fiction. I’ll blame my children and my husband and watching all those seasons of Stargate SG1 on Netflix. It doesn’t matter how it started. What matters is that while I eagerly await season 8 with Peter Capaldi, my family and I are watching Classic Who. And I am liking it. I think it’s safe to say I’m a fan. I’ve become a Whovian.
