got to spend time upstairs today   2 comments

and it was good.  🙂

I made a couple of cards, straightened out the stuff on the table, and even unpacked a couple of boxes.  Yes, more boxes.  I am working on organizing the closet, which meant that I took all the boxes out a few weeks ago and have been just looking at them.  I am sick of it.  So I started looking in them.  These boxes have nothing to do with crafts, why they are in there, I don’t know.  Anyway, I went through lots of old photos and cards and presents from my sweetie.  Anyone interested in a red plastic replica of the famous weinermobile?  Me neither, but it was fun to get at the time.  And I haven’t chucked it yet, so if you DO want it, just let me know, and it will be on its way to you.

Found some great photos of the twins with Grampa T – they were maybe 2.  N was even smiling, instead of glaring at the camera like she was being hounded by the paparazzi, like in so many of the other photos I have of her at that age.

Also found a cousin picture that actually had ALL of the cousins in it – such a rare occurrence.  It was taken on the “CAKE!” day, which will live in family lore forever, since brother C made that video of our pavlovian response. What is truly amazing is how young we all looked that day. I can’t speak for the other 8, but I don’t feel as much older as I look!

So, there are still several boxes to go through.  And sadly, we aren’t yet ready to hang photos and things, so I will have to repack all those things into a box and store it somewhere.  Not in the craft room closet though. That is getting filled with yarn and fabric, as it was intended to be.

  1. I LOVE reading about you and A. I will be checking in here all the time! I have always loved how you tell stories.

    In the event that you don’t know who CrimsonCrow is, we used to work together, then I worked for the Devil. And Slim and Ernie say: Meowr.

    • oh, I know who you are – I used to follow your blog! Haven’t checked it in a while do you still write there? I’ll check it out later.

      Frankie says hi to Slim and Ernie. She wishes she could see them, but she can’t. She wishes the sun would come out but it won’t. She wishes she got invited to THE wedding, but she didn’t. Sad to be Frankie, huh?
