We have been BUSY!
It absolutely poured for the whole picnic yesterday – luckily we had a pavilion to hang out under, we played silly games and a group of us played some card games. C made friends with the only other person her age there, R, the daughter of one of my favorite coworkers. The picnic broke up after lunch, and I took the girls “on the town” to TJ Maxx, Family Dollar and Reny’s where we wrapped up the last of C’s school shopping (book bag and flip-flops) and R started hers. The girls are getting the same book bag so they can be all matchy matchy in different states. R had to go to work, so we swung by her house, got her uniform, said hi again to her sister, mom, and aunt, and then took her to work, where we all got ice cream. Still pouring rain, so C and I came home. No mini-golf.
Today we worked on finishing up birthday cards for tomorrow, our collage art projects, we dyed some yarn using tropical punch KoolAid, and I did the CAL rows. C and A also made jam (three batches) for C to bring home with her, and I made popovers for us. Twice, as I burned the first batch. Also made mac and cheese for tomorrow, and by that time, I was getting cranky. I think the burned popovers put me over the edge. I am TIRED!
Tomorrow we fix up the green salad, put the last of the packages to gether, load the car and get out of here by 10. C wants to play a game of cards before we go, so I have to get up early. That means I should go to bed right now.
I’m going, I’m going.
I’ll post the CAL info in the next day or two…
Second sock is coming along between things – foot and heel are done, there only remains the leg to finish before it goes in the dye pot.
