Kearney glanced up ruefully, holding up his handyman book to show her. "I just got into reading this, I guess."
Shannon chuckled, pointing to the bedroom. "Bed! Now!"
"DAAAAAAD!" she screeched, quickly yanking her feet back up into the bed where the gnome couldn't reach her.
It was Dillon Lawless, a relatively new recruit. "Hi, Shannon. We're here at the supermarket and we sure could use your help," he said sheepishly.
"What's the problem?" she asked.
"Well, it's like this. There's been a mix-up with some puzzle pieces over here and we were hoping you could come help us sort through it all."
Shannon sighed. It still felt strange to go from being in charge to having the opportunity to sort through puzzle pieces.
"I'll be right over," she told him.
Daisy marveled at it's beauty.
"Violet, be nice to your sister," Breandan called over his shoulder when he overheard Violet complaining to Holly about the dishes as he walked by.
Violet huffed indignantly, "I am! She said she'd do the dishes today!" Angrily, she stomped off.
"Shannon, how did the puzzle mix-up at the supermarket turn out?" Breandan asked.
Shannon glanced up from the book she was reading briefly. "It went well. I had it all sorted in short order," she told him.
Tearley hopped up from the couch. "Hey dad! It's supposed to snow tomorrow. I bet I could ice skate better than Marigold. When do you think the river will ice over?"
Breandan smiled at his son. "Well, I'm not I remember. Maybe after a month of cold temperatures."
Tearley sighed heavily. "That'll take forever!" he complained. "I want to do it tomorrow!"
"With time and effort, you can do anything you put your mind to," Breandan counseled his on. "But most of all, you need to work on patience."
She was about to leave when something caught her eye. A seed. An uncommonly big seed...
She knew just who to ask, as well!
Mackenzie shook her head. "Absolutely not!" she told Marigold. "To bed!" she said firmly, pointing towards the door.
Marigold grumped the whole way to her room. When she saw the bunk bed was empty, she wailed, "Why do I hafta go to sleep if Tearley doesn't?!"
Tearley sighed, but headed to bed without complaint.
When Tearley was out of earshot, Mackenzie raised her brow. "Now the kids are all in bed," she said suggestively to her husband, wiggling her eyebrows.
Breandan asked with a smile.
Daisy cradled the seed to her chest. "Oh, no. I know," she lied with a sigh. "But this time it's different. It was right there under the Aisling tree. What else could it be?"

*AN - Kearney's been busting his butt trying to max his handiness skill! Boy has that been hard! He slept all day long since he was so exhausted!
Mackenzie didn't roll anything except 'hang lights' today! She just wants to earn a promotion, maybe I'll have her talk to her husband...
I'm considering dropping a few wishes that I haven't been able to fulfill - such as Attend a party & Holly's jam out with someone. I haven't figured out how to tell if someone else has a musical instrument to jam with her.
Loving Daisy's storyline right now! She found an uncommon seed & wants to learn gardening. So, we'll have to get her gardening skill high enough to plant it! I also thought it was funny finding the pesky gnome by her bedside staring at the fish. Lol. Wonder how long it'll stay under lock and key this time!"
Poor Breandan really wants to be best friends with his dad, but it's taking sooooooo long.
