Makers and doers

It has been lovely spending time with my family. My Mom showed me a lap quit she made – stitching the little triangles by hand with her small, neat stitches. If I were haveing her parent-teacher conference, I would point out her great fine-motor skills!

Monday morning we worked in the yard for a little bit. Actually, my Dad worked in the yard a lot. He was up at the crack of dawn spraying the fruit trees to get rid of the coddling moths.

Later, Keren and I helped out a little with the yard. Mom and Dad had a sprinkler system installed and we worked on repairing the ruts where the lines went in. Mom’s flowers looked great and I weeded for about fifteen seconds.

Keren has been working on a budget report for her job, and my head swims just thinking about the numbers she has to work with. It’s pretty amazing.

Later in the day we made a shopping trip and then had the most amazing steak dinner at home on the deck. Ahhhh…. vacation…..

    That sounds like an awesome day. I love quilts and gardening and steak. I don’t like budget reports very much though. Sorry, Keren.

Hangin’ out with the fam

I am in Colorado now visiting with my parents and sister. The trip out here was eventful, but that’s for another day. We’ve had a great time hanging out, going to church, looking at the garden and the new sprinkler system and taking the occasional nap. I will catch up with you all later. 🙂

Thin-lipped smile

Our storyteller, at the end our our story about Namaan asked us, “How do you look when you’re scared?” I looked scared. “How do you look when you’re happy?” I smiled. “How do you look when you’re tired?” I smiled. “How do you look when you’re mad?” I smiled. She shouldn’t have asked how I […]

Oy. We are only two days into VBS and there are many things I will not grumble about. Oy. Oy. The shirts are good. The setup is good. Other things are the reason for grumbling.

Makin’ jump rings

The art show is coming up, and there are several pieces that could/should be hung on the wall, so that’s been my job. One is a very interesting metal plaque that has two holes at the top – pretty obviously for a chain or something. We found a necklace with a cool chain on Saturday, […]
