She has already gotten out the air-dry clay, and made herself a Golden Amulet.
There is a "T" for Tiger her cat. Real amulets typically had animals such as lions, elephants and crocodiles - warding off bad spirits.
She's having more fun today, and building an African Savanna. Meanwhile, my 12 year-old daughter is baking a cake and making homemade butter cream frosting. The deal was that she had to wash her dishes and put them away.
As for the rest, one is caring for her goats and upkeeping the barn, while her brother sleeps on the sofa. He's been sick the last few days and is scheduled for work.
The two younger girls also set up a "hair salon" in the living room. They are giving me "do's" as part of their "spa" day. They don't like it when I say, "washer is done I need to hang the clothes out" etc. etc.
We may just have to set our Glamper Tent back up. Although I just read that we are expecting more rain in the next day or so. Good thing I weeded in the vegetable garden this morning.
