On Saturday, our exciting outing was to the pet store to get supplies for the cats (remember them?). It counted as an exciting outing because our pet store has an indoor koi pond, and for a quarter you can buy a small handful of koi food pellets. It was a big hit, and we had to draw the line at 75 cents worth.
On Sunday, "we" did some gardening. There were bulbs involved. I honestly couldn't tell you what kind of flowers they are supposed to be, whether they were planted in any sort of arrangement or order, and whether they were planted deep enough to survive the Wisconsin winter. All I can say with certainty is that we'll know more in the spring.
Pretty much the only time we all sit down together is at mealtimes, which I'm happy to report have been going a bit better this week than last. It seems like Lemon is in a little cycle where he doesn't eat for a few days until he's really, really hungry. Then he eats quite well for a few days until he's taken the edge off, and then he goes back into hunger strike mode. It's not the most relaxing cycle for his parents, I have to say, but I'm grasping for any kind of predictability at this point.
Lime made a big leap forward over the last few days. All of a sudden, he began to really notice the world around him, and specifically the objects that it contains. The little turtles on his chair are of particular interest. He gazes at them with a striking intensity, and when he's really on his game he can manage to strike them with his fists.
