Cleaning up my hobby room is something which really scooted up the ladder of importance. I can't find my tools anymore and that is serious.
But look what I found! An old birthday card from my girls. It made me happy again! But this time I had to pitch it. Or did I?
I had to try whether I could make "scoops" for dips. Works great too ... but time intensive with only 4 forms.
Yes, lacemaking was on the agenda too. The monthly meeting with my lace friends was in Williamsburg this time. James drove because he wanted to do something there too. I distracted him with my talking and he turned too early. Look the loops we had to drive to get on the right way again. And besides that we had a horrible rain.
Yesterday was Helen's birthday.
Happy Birthday, my sweet daughter!
Her original plans that she wanted to do had been scrapped due to the weather. Plan B suited James and me just fine. I baked a cake in the morning. Since Helen told me what she would like made it so easy. In the afternoon we picked William up from preschool. We played hard. I can feel it in my muscles now.
Grandpa felt a little tired and put his feet up and tried to "rest his eyes" but William got wise to it. He invented a game and called "boo" every time James closed his eyes. I thought too late of taking the video and missed the best part, but here is a sample. And another one. James got a little tired at the end of jumping every time. William also loves arranging whether the foot-part of your recliner should be up and down.
But the cake was gone first. And he loves blueberries a lot.
Helen said she had a great birthday. For us it was a great day too. William didn't have a nap in preschool and he never napped because we had to "play hard" at the townhouse. So I suggested to Helen to bring his PJs which she did. After the cake he was ready for a bath. Ready for bed he fell asleep in the car going home and slept till next morning at 9 am.
