My brain is meandering in very un-writerly ways right now; struggling to concentrate and feeling unable to create complete sentences.
Here is a picture of Pooka working on her new needlepoint project. This was last Tuesday, which was the first and also the last time we worked on it. Some days I don’t have time. And some days I don’t have patience.
Family ice cream time. Except for Darth Piggy, who was away at camp having way more fun than an ice cream cone from McDonald’s could ever provide.
Last week on Wednesday, Pooka’s friends from across the street came over and made cookies. They made a huge mess and had tons of fun and got colored cookie dough everywhere and giggled a lot.
Here are some of their finished masterpieces.
I think we can all agree that they are amazing cookie dough artists of the highest order.
One of the things I was given from my Grandma’s house were her Pyrex mixing bowls. My dad can remember her using them when he was just a little boy, and I love them so much. But the green one was missing. Thanks to the joys of antiquing, I am now the proud owner of a full set– and they are so pretty. I love using them. I love bright colors!!
And speaking of bright colors, I am learning the brand new skill of crochet thanks to the help of a friend, and my first project also involves a lot of beautiful brights.
That picture was taken Friday, right after my first lesson. I’ve finished that whole skein of yarn now, and started in on a few rounds of blue, just for a change. I decided I was spending far too much time playing mindless computer games, so crochet is my new thing to do with my hands when we’re watching TV or whatever.
On Saturday Darth Piggy came home, sunburned and happy. I was a little excited to see him.
I was less excited to see his duffel bag full of laundry, but we soldier on.
We had fun spoiling Art on Father’s Day.
I got him this chicken mug because it’s awesome.
Darth Piggy thought it was the most hilarious thing he had ever seen. Either that or he was still not caught up on sleep. The child laughed hysterically for like a full minute.
(I know it’s a terrible picture. Sorry about that.)
So I know this post doesn’t actually say much, but as I may have mentioned, my brain is only partially functional right now. I hope that in the morning I will have more actual Thoughts To Share.
In the meantime, have a picture of Art and the kids on the porch swing.
And have a lovely day! 🙂
