Friday Tidbits

I'm busy working on a few handmade Christmas presents, working on an order from my "store" and ................

finally getting back on the treadmill for daily exercise!  Yay!

I added a new moon photo to my flickr page.

We've had some very sunny days after all the rain we got, but rain is in the forecast for Sunday.

The kids left me a note this morning  (on the computer screen):  1. Go to google.   2. Type in "Do a barrel roll"   3.  Wait for it.  


Go ahead and try it.  I did.  It's funny what entertains kids these days.  


The kids are baking and painting salt dough Christmas ornaments. Cheap, easy, and fun entertainment.


I had a chuckle the other day with my youngest daughter.  I said "go get a cleaning apron on and get to cleaning."  She responded, "who wears aprons anymore?"


So, when she got home from school, I not only kept my "cleaning apron" on, but stood outside the front door when her school bus stopped, so not only she could see, but the entire bus of kids. Ha ha ha ha!  It's just an old 1/2 apron I bought at a thrift store, but it works.  And she thought you only wear an apron to cook.


Have a great Friday today!

Oh my goodness! that was hilarious...
I laughed my head off at the thought of the bus pulling up and you standing there with the apron on! My kind of parenting...all moments are teachable moments!

I laughed so hard I had scroll back up and re-read the rest of the post...it made me forget for a minute!

Kudos on the treadmill activity...and selling an order from your shop!

enjoy the weekend...

What a way to embarrass the kids! :)
I just recently embraced the apron. Not because I didn't NEED to wear one (boy, did I EVER need to wear one), but always forget to put one on.

Oh, my, I just died laughing about the apron story. That's classic :) :)

I'm making homemade gifts this year for Christmas, too :) :)

Have a lovely weekend. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
