Dasia's Home from Work (Photostory)
Before we get to the story, I thought I'd show you the progress on Dasia and Harold's bedroom. There's a chandelier above their bed that isn't in the picture. Still work to be done. Originally those pillows were going in the living room.
But when Dasia bought this rug for the living room, the pillows no longer worked with the decor. She will have to buy some new pillows.
On to the story...
Dasia has just returned home from work. Benji is there to greet her.
"Hi Benji. Did you have a good day?" (Dasia)
"Mommy is exhausted. I can't wait to get out of these clothes." (Dasia)
Dasia heads to her bedroom with Benji on her heels.
"Are you going to help me take off my shoes? I didn't think so. Mommy's getting ready to hop in the shower and get comfortable." (Dasia)
"Mi, mi, mi, mi, miiiii" (Dasia warming up her vocal cords)
"Ooh now I feel like a new person." (Dasia)
"What are you doing on my bed? Get down." (Dasia)
After putting on her nightgown, Dasia decides to lay down for a minute. She's been on her feet all day and she's pooped. Doesn't take long for her to dose off.
25 mins later Mr. Reed arrives home from work.
"I see you Benji. Hello to you, too. I see your mother is sound asleep." (Harold)
"Hi honey. I'm not sleep. I was just resting my eyes." (Dasia)
"How was your day?" (Dasia)
"Fairly uneventful. I take it you had a pretty grueling day since you're already in the bed." (Harold)
"I'm not in the bed. I'm on the bed. I just needed to get off my feet. I brought wings home for dinner." (Dasia)
"Are you eating?" (Harold)
"I don't think I can make it back downstairs. Can you bring them up here?" (Dasia)
Dasia shakes off the sleepiness and sits up.
"Darn, I should have asked him to make me a cup of coffee." (Dasia)
Harold returns with the wings.
"Don't even think about it Benji." (Harold)
"Honey, would you mind making me a cup of coffee?" (Dasia)
"Isn't coffee going to keep you up?" (Harold)
"You know coffee doesn't keep me awake." (Dasia)
"Is there anything else? I'm not going back after this?" (Harold)
"That's it." (Dasia)
Dasia moves the wings off the bed, away from Benji.
"Darn. How did the remote control get way over there?" (Dasia)
Harold decides to fix himself a cup of coffee, too.
"Oh you're having some too?" (Dasia)
"I figured I might as well be up with you, tonight." (Harold)
"I told you, I'm not going to be up." (Dasia)
Harold takes off his shirt and shoes and finally sits down to relax.
"What did you do with the chicken?" (Harold)
"It's right here." (Dasia)
"What are you watching?" (Harold)
"The Voice." (Dasia)
"Is that Pharell?" (Harold)
"Yes. He's one of the mentors." (Dasia)
Harold takes a piece of chicken and hands the platter back to Dasia.
"Wow, she is good!" (Harold)
Dasia and Harold finish their coffee and chicken. Harold puts Benji in the backyard, before heading for the shower. The coffee has apparently given Dasia a little energy because she makes her way downstairs for some dessert. She made a three layer caramel cake a few days ago, and she is dying for a piece.
Dasia's Caramel Cake. Now available in the Etsy store.
Buffalo wings. Also available in the Etsy store.
Each piece is loose and separate.
