Had a load of stone brought in, and filled the holes the buses are making in the driveway.
Dehydrated a bunch of soft pretzel sticks that my Mom gave us. I made them into bread crumbs.
Weekends are more work than play this winter, but I still try to squeeze in time to get projects finished...
I continue to braid rag balls for my braided rag rug. My strips are not 2 to 2 1/2 inches wide, so they are not folded to have a flat look, and strays of fabric are sticking out, but I don't care. I have about 16 feet braided now.
Last Sunday the kids got bored, which sparked a creative and funny episode - three of the girls created a rock band and dressed up in items I have in our costume boxes. Hilarious!
I spent a day sitting on a chair in the 60°F weather, reading a good book. All of our summer lawn furniture is still stored away, so I used a chair from the house.
The elementary school canceled their "family movie night" and we had one at home instead. My 10 year-old was so upset about not having it (we had plans to attend in our pajamas), so we rented a DVD and had fun snacks, including cotton candy at home. They girls loved it.
Today I am thankful for:
~the extra food Mom brought us
~our DVD player
~friends, for lending an ear to listen
~family, for bringing in our load of stone
~pretty vintage tablecloths - they bring cheer to the kitchen
~our cordless drill...tools are so essential here
